[Russell, Margo]. 1985 NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BANQUET ALBUM. Photo album containing four testimonial letters written on the occasion of the banquet held by the Numismatic Association of Southern California in January 1985, honoring Margo Russell on her retirement from Coin World. Letters are typewritten and hand-signed, and are by Director of the Mint Donna Pope, ANA Past President Herbert Bergen, ANA President Q. David Bowers and ANA Executive Vice President Edward C. Rochette. Also included in the album are six black and white photographs, all of which feature Russell from various numismatic occasions. Materials generally fine. An endearing memento of a woman whom Donna Pope calls "truly the first Lady of Numismatics" in her letter. As Ed Rochette says in his letter, "I am honored to have been asked to say a few words about Margo, but I have been more fortunate in being able to say, 'I know her!'"
