ANACS Sponsors 2nd Annual SSDC Registry Awards
by John Roberts
In our continuing sponsorship of the Society of Silver Dollar Collectors Registry Awards, ANACS will again recognize the dedication of those numismatists that have persevered to assemble sets that excel among their peers. The awards will be announced and presented at the SSDC’s annual event ‘VAM Thing’ held at the FUN convention in January. An additional category has been added this year, to recognize the set presented in The Elite 30 Peace Dollar VAMs by Dr, David Close and C. Ash Harrison. To be considered, a set must be listed on the SSDC Registry and its owner must be a member in good standing. Employees of the sponsor are not eligible to complete. Sets will be evaluated much like the scoring used on the SSDC Registry itself, but with added emphasis placed on professionally certified and/or independently verified attributions to further ensure the accuracy of potential awardees. The sets will be judged as they appear in the registry on December 1st.
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
1. Best Complete Morgan VAM Set
2. Best Complete Peace VAM Set
3. Best Complete Morgan Top 100
4. Best Complete Morgan Hot 50
5. Best Complete Morgan Hit List 40
6. Best Complete Peace Top 50
7. Best Peace Elite 30
8. Best Standard Subset - the 8 TF and 79-S Rev of 78 are examples
9. Best Specialty Set
10. Best Individual Date Set
11. Impact Award – for the set with the greatest potential research value in the silver dollar variety field. For example, last year’s winner was not only an outstanding collection of 1902-O Morgans; it was also the basis of much of the research into a guide for the date, which in turn could be used by others to engage in similar efforts.
The awards will be publicly recognized by the set name. If an owner has used their own name for their set, and does not wish to be identified, then the set name should be changed prior to December 1st. The set name should be suitable for publication. ANACS routinely advertises in major numismatic publications and has committed to publicizing the Registry Awards, and by natural extension, the SSDC itself. I invite you all to join me at FUN as we celebrate the excellence our colleagues have demonstrated in their collecting efforts.
