Number of seminars doubled

The American Numismatic Association has doubled its number of summer seminars. Two one-week sessions will be held to accommodate the flood of applicants.

Sessions, offering intensive study in numismatics will be held July 1-7 and 8-14 at the association's headquarters in Colorado Springs.

Twenty-one new classes have been listed ranging from art history through coinage to specific studies in Colonial coppers, Asian coinage and computers and their use in numismatics.

Long-running courses in coin-grading, counterfeits, photography, U.S. currency, ancient coinage and Civil War coinage will return. A total of 46 courses will be offered, and students may join field trips to the Denver Mint as well as recreational tours in Colorado and New Mexico.

Enrollment will be limited to 300 for the two sessions. Queries go to the association's education department at (719) 632-2646.
