September Is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

September Is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Spreading Awareness Through  Silver

“Everyone knows someone who…” Unfortunately, there are a number of ways to finish that sentence in today’s society. While that may be true, we are focused on only one way of finishing it and that is “...who has or has had cancer or a deadly disease.” The sad fact is, this rings very true for most Americans and really, everyone in the world.

And many signed up to don our Nation's uniform to prove to the world that no act of terror could eclipse the strength or character of our country." - President Barack Obama

William Kneass: United States Chief Engraver Series

William Kneass: United States Chief Engraver Series

Modifications. Coin designs receive them all the time. Sometimes it is before the coin is released and other times it is after. This is what makes variety possible at times.

William Kneass Early Years

Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on September 25, 1781, Kneass would eventually become a member of the service as a volunteer associate among field engineers in the War...read more
