OMSA is off

Posted on Sat, 25 April 2020 by Phil Mussell - General News, Medal News

It was perhaps inevitable but nevertheless the announcement that the Orders and Medals Society (OMSA) convention in August has been cancelled was one we hoped we wouldn't hear. The Token team has been going to OMSA for over two decades and we thoroughly enjoy the trip Stateside, we were particularly looking forward to this year as the convention was due to be held in Orlando! Unlike the UK where we get to see our collecting friends on a reasonably regular basis at the fairs, the USA is so vast that convention is usually the only chance for the medal fraternity to get together. It will be sorely missed but we do understand why the decision has been taken. We hope to see everyone in Milwaukee in 2021.
