7:10PM     General Discussion

 

  • Steve Tercyak requested that members provide their birthday date in advance of the next monthly meeting. The members who had a birthday in June received a Brilliant Uncirculated 1955-D Roosevelt dime (1955 was the year which TBCC was founded). Seven (7) members received coins.

 

  • Medal Program Update: Two (2) samples of the 2019 Florida East Coast Railroad medal were received. The bi-metalic finish. Members voted to change the finish to gold since the quality of the bi-metal finish was unacceptable. It was indicated that the Private Mint in Virginia has outsourced all medal production to China. This has resulted in inferior quality medallions which are unacceptable by TBCC standards. Joe Crespo will explore other Private Mints which could be employed to produce future TBCC medallions. The new medals should be received in time for the Summer FUN Show.
