Heritage Auction Galleries donated $1,500 in memberships for young collectors to the American Numismatic Association. As a result, more than 75 one-year memberships were given at the Portland National Money Show™, March 13-15.
The ANA welcomed more than 400 Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to four merit badge and patch workshops in Portland. At each of the workshops, 15 memberships were awarded. Throughout the course of the show, memberships were also given to youth who displayed promise as numismatists.
"We are proud of our longtime support for ANA youth programs," said Bob Korver, Director Emeritus at Heritage. "It’s our hope that the many benefits of ANA membership can further inspire these young collectors to become more active in our hobby."
Heritage Auction Galleries is based in Dallas. For more information, visit www.HA.com.
