    Potter will also be offering macro and photomicrography for coins that quality for future articles and will be offering autographed copies of his latest book, Strike It Rich With Pocket Change 4rd Edition that he coauthored with Dr. Brian Allen along with copies of the Cherrypickers' Guide To Rare Die Varieties 5th Edition Volume II, by Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton, which as editor, he will also autograph.

    Application forms for membership in the Combined Organizations of Numismatic Error Collectors of America along with sample copies of their journal will be available.

    Potter asks persons who intend to bring coins for an opinion to limit themselves to about five coins per person. He stated, "We may be able to fudge a bit on the five-coin rule but we cannot render opinions on boxes containing hundreds of coins.

    The Michigan State Numismatic Society Spring Convention will be held at the Macomb County Community College.

    The feature attraction of this show is the wide variety of dealers including most from outside the metro area from all around the country. This offers an opportunity for local dealers and collectors to pick through fresh inventories.

    Early-Bird Passes are available and recommended to those who plan to attend with an aim at cherrypicking. Early-Bird passes are $50 and allow anybody entry on to the floor a day early during dealer set-up on Thursday between 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM and on Friday starting at 8:00 AM.
