The Cushing Catalog Numbering System for PNNA Memorabilia

  • The Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association was founded in 1940, and issued its first medal at the third convention held in 1946 in Centralia, Washington. Many additional memorabilia items, mostly medals and wooden nickels, came along over the years. Most of these items commemorate the annual conventions.
  • The present catalog numbering system for PNNA memorabilia is named in honor of PNNA life member Del Cushing, who assembled an extensive collection of PNNA memorabilia which was later sold to the PNNA.

PNNA Memorabilia Catalog information

  • Cushing numbers begin with prefixes C (convention issues), CB (convention badges), CP (convention programs), NC (non-convention issues) and B (buttons). The C and CP designations are followed by a two-digit year number, which should suffice until the PNNA's 100th anniversary in 2040!
  • Letter suffixes (beginning with "a") are used only where required because of new discoveries.
  • Some of the information found on these pages is uncertain and incomplete. As more accurate information becomes available, these web pages will be updated. Please contact the PNNA if you are aware of any items that are not listed, or if you have more information.
  • Most of the pages below should print on a single 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper, with a margin setting of 0.5 inches on all sides. These pages do not contain navigation links to the rest of the PNNA web site. Use the "Index" link to return to this page, then choose "PNNA Homepage" or "Info Page."
  • Many of these items were made and distributed in very limited quantities, and are difficult to obtain, although there are also more common items. In some years, left-over wooden nickels were distributed at the Puyallup Fair in September. If you are interested in collecting PNNA or other local coin club memorabilia, please contact the PNNA and/or the Northwest Token and Medal Society care of Del Cushing, P.O. Box 88984, Seattle, WA 98138-2984.
