The Professional Numismatists Guild 2010 Outstanding Achievement Award Winners

The Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) presented its outstanding achievement awards for 2010 during the PNG Day banquet held in Boston, Massachusetts on August 9, 2010. The recipients did not include a single "collectors' rights" advocate for advocating no-questions-asked collecting, though the PNG is one of the partners of the ACCG in its battle with US restrictions on import of illegally exported material. I would like to think this is because they recognise that this approach is not acieving anything at all for numismatics and is seriously damaging its reputation. It is interesting to note that one of the awards goes to achievement in fighting numismatic crime, though I expect the PNG has a different attitude to what is criminal in the no-questions-asked trade in dugup numismata than the rest of us normal folk.
