I have just received two “Pedigrees” that are very unique and special to me. They are authenticated by ICG and beautifully presented in the ICG slab. ICG has also authenticated/graded pedigrees from such special collections as the GSA Hoard and Golden Nugget Casino.
The first Pedigree was presented to me as an “Award of Appreciation” for exhibiting the coins displayed in my book Rick’s Legacy – Pedigree & Hoard / Coins & Currency at the 2014 Summer FUN. As you will see below, it is a 2014 Silver Eagle and is numbered 23 of 60 in recognition of the participation in exhibiting at the show.
The second Pedigree was also an “Award of Appreciation” presented to me for my lecture on Pedigree coins at the Summer FUN show on July 12 and is number 31 of 60.
Being a Pedigree collector, these two “Award of Appreciation” gifts have vaulted to the top of my favorite Pedigree holdings. So, move over Champagne Lanson, Palace Collection, Fitzgerald Collection and other wonderful Pedigrees. There is a new Pedigree in the house and it now holds the honor of being my favorite Pedigree.
For all you Pedigree collectors out there, you too can receive your own special Pedigree like the one I received by exhibiting at the FUN show. There are only a couple of pre-qualifications you must meet. First, become a FUN member (modest membership fee). Second, create an interesting and educational exhibit. There are several ways to exhibit and/or compete and you can learn the different ways by visiting the FUN website at:
