The primary purpose of the award will be to recognize the work and its contribution to the dissemination of numismatic knowledge of Colonial and Early US numismatics.

The C4 Board hopes this award, in some small way, recognizes and honors Syd’s outstanding contributions via his four published books, all of which have become the standard references on their respective series, many of which previously lacked a concise and recognized standard reference.

Please join us in recognizing Syd for his outstanding contributions which form the foundation for the creation of this award.
