On Sunday, January 27, 2019 members of the Willamette Coin Club (WCC) gathered at the club’s home base at the Portland Chess Club for a how to do workshop; Building a Successful Numismatic Exhibit. 
From 1:00 – 4:00 pm James Reinders, national and regional award-winning exhibitor hosted the gathering, and shared his extensive knowledge, techniques and enthusiasm with the attendees.

Topics Discussed:

The purpose of an exhibit is to educate other numismatists. Often the biggest winner is the exhibitor him or herself. The insight gained gathering info not only opens opportunity to learn more, but also to share knowledge with other collectors and the non-collecting public.

What makes a good exhibit ?

Exhibit Rules: what you need to know about exhibiting; WCC,ANA, PNNA, and local club rules.

If you choose to compete – how to win!

Exhibit classes, and exhibit cases. Very often the host club will provide them and you need to let them know in advance.

How collector exhibits are judged; know the rules.

At the conclusion a Q and A session ensued to address any unanswered questions as well as feedback.

So, jump in, enjoy your own creativity, plus count on a little help from your friends.

Cheers to all.
