Join us on January 12th, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. in the Room W304A in Orlando Florida at the 64th Annual Fun Convention! Our featured speaker will be Jim Zylstra. The title of his presentation is:  “bride-price in primitive money comes to mind”.

“A 20 minute power-point on the subject of bride-price in primitive money comes to mind.  The social standards of that time were distinctly patriarchal and might make for some interesting discussion.  I shall try to leave time for questions, as I am sure some may have questions or at least comments!

Mr. Zylstra has been exhibiting, judging, writing and speaking on numismatics for about ten years.   At the 2018 MSNS Fall Convention, he received a 1st place for the exhibit, “Primitive Money from the Democratic Republic of Congo,” as well as having that exhibit named Adult Exhibit of the Year, for which he received a scholarship to the ANA Summer Seminar.  He is also the 2016 recipient of the CSNS 2nd place Elston G. Bradford/Roland W. Finner Literary Award.  He has just completed a book entitled: Primitive Money of Africa: Tales and Details. Plans are to retire in a few years.
