BLUESHEET: CDN RECEIVES NLG AWARD FOR “BEST PRICE GUIDE NEWSLETTER OR MAGAZINE”

The Numismatic Literary Guild held their annual banquet on the evening of August 3rd during the ANA World’s Fair of Money show in Denver, Colorado. Numerous awards are given annually by the elite organization in categories spanning the range of numismatic-related literature. This year, CDN was honored with the award in the “Best Price Guide Newsletter or Magazine” category for our dedicated work in he role of independently pricing rare coins.

CDN Publisher, John Feigenbaum, was named specifically in the presentation of the award, however, according to Feigenbaum, “I can take no personal credit for quality of work we do here at CDN. I work with a wonderful team of dedicated professionals and we ALL are committed to the honest, unbiased pricing and presentation of United States coins and currency, and now Modern Chinese issues. We all work incredibly hard at this and we’re constantly innovating to bring our prices to coin dealers in the most efficient manner possible. While we will always honor our readers with printed publications, we have also recently added our pricing to our web site, and soon to a dedicated smartphone app. We have also recently created retail pricing branded Collector’s Price Guide, or CPG. CPG values are available free to all web site visitors and now published in print in the ANA Numismatist magazine.” Feigenbaum concluded to say that “those of us at CDN genuinely appreciate the honorarium from NLG, and we are dedicated to continuing our efforts.”
