ANA Convention - San Francisco, California
July 27-31, 2005

Several PNNA members attended the American Numismatic Association's 114th Anniversary Convention in San Francisco, had a good time, enjoyed the exhibits, participated in important meetings, and maybe even made some new acquisitions! The convention was successful, highlighted by a number of special exhibits as shown below, however public attendance and bourse activity were reportedly a bit less than the ANA and the dealers expected.

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