Longtime Summer season Seminar instructors Charles O. Browne and William Shamhart were awarded honorary Medical professional of Numismatics degrees from the American Numismatic Association’s Florence Schook School of Numismatics on July four in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Browne and Shamhart have been co-instructors for the Summer Seminar course “Advanced Grading and Dilemma Coins” since 2005. Both are longtime numismatists — Browne began collecting in 1958 while Shamhart began in 1974.

“We’ve each been carrying out this for 35 years, so to capture and impart that information to somebody who has only been involved in numismatics for five years, they’re going to stroll away with a great deal of knowledge,” Browne said.

Browne has mainly worked as a wholesaler throughout his career, while Shamhart owns Numismatic Americana Inc. of Chester, N.J. Both have worked as expert coin graders during their careers as properly. Their combined encounter makes for a well-liked classroom dynamic, so a lot so that their students often take the “Advanced Grading and Problem Coins” class more than as soon as.

“My favorite component is the ‘eureka moment,’ when they get it,” Shamhart said. “It could be on Monday, it could be on Thursday, but you get to see the excitement when it clicks for them. At that moment, the radiance that comes off of them, you can just feel it.”

Also honored during the banquet was Robert Hoge, who received an ANA Presidential Award for his dedication to the hobby.

Hoge spent 20 years as the curator for the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Funds Museum and 19 years as an instructor at Summer season Seminar. Hoge is curator emeritus for the American Numismatic Society and is a member of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee. He is also an accomplished writer, speaker and exhibitor.
