ANA Convention - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
August 18-22, 2004

Several PNNA members attended the American Numismatic Association's 113th Anniversary Convention in Pittsburgh, had a good time, enjoyed the exhibits, participated in important meetings, and maybe even made some new acquisitions! The convention was very successful, highlighted by a number of special exhibits as shown below.

The following photos show some of the activities associated with the convention.
