New FNS Meeting Location
We have a new official meeting site! We will be meeting each month at Trinity Lutheran Church, 3973 N. Cedar Avenue, Fresno, CA 93726. We will be in the Luther Hall which is a much larger and nicer place then our previous venue. Please come and check it out!
Next FNS Meeting
Our next meeting is on Tuesday October11 at our new "permanent" location: Trinity Lutheran Church located at 3973 North Cedar Avenue, Fresno, CA 93726, starting at 7PM. All members and guests are invited. This is the last FNS meeting before the October 21 & 22 Coin Show so that event will be the main topic. We will also have the usual meeting activities. Hope to see everyone there!
2021 FNS Coin Show a Success!
We completed our annual Fresno Numismatic Society Coin Show in October 2021 (10/23 & 10/24) which was presented at the American Legion Post 509 in Fresno. This show was organized and conducted by the Society and by most accounts went very well. Dealers and attendees were happy and FNS raised enough cash to finance our club activities through 2022. We are planning for another show next October and with luck, planning, and hard work we should be able to make it an even bigger success.
FNS Ready For Another Great Show
The annual FNS Coin Show for 2022 is planned for October 21 & 22 (Friday and Saturday) at American Legion Post 509. The location is 3509 North First Street, Fresno CA 93726. We expect an outstanding assortment of dealers and are looking forward to a really excellent show.
Details to follow.
PCGS Grading Services at the October 2022 Show?
FNS member dealer John Ward (A.k.a., dealer CalJohn66 Silver) is a PCGS-authorized dealer. John can accept coins for submission to PCGS. Unfortunately, he is not attending our October show so attendees will not be able to submit coins this time. Hopefully John will be able to provide that service at our next Fresno Coin Show.
Please keep in mind these basic rules about our monthly coin auctions:
1) For our traditional auctions (conducted by FNS), the Fresno Numismatic Society reserves the right to pay sellers by check. Sometimes we may not have enough cash on-hand; in that case, our Treasurer will pay the seller proceeds with an FNS check. Non-member buyers may not pay with a check. Cash only please! We have basically discontinued these traditional auctions. Instead, we will concentrate on Bid-Board or silent auction formats.
2) For traditional auctions FNS is required to collect California sales tax. The tax will be added to the hammer price.
3) For Bid-Board type auctions buyers and sellers directly complete all transactions. If your seller accepts a check that's fine! Bid-Board auctions are not conducted by FNS and no sales tax will be collected by FNS.
