CNA members, who pay dues and receive the newsletter by email, are considered members making charitable donations to the club, and the Association dues are deductible on their 1040 tax form.
Those members, who pay dues, but request that newsletters be mailed to them, should assume they get value for their donations and therefore should not consider Association dues as deductible charitable donations.
IF YOU ARE CURRENT WITH YOUR CNA DUES, AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR NEW LAMINATED MEMBERSHIP CARD, AND/OR
YOUR “WOODEN” 5 CENTAVO NICKEL, PLEASE CONTACT FRANK PUTROW AT THE ABOVE INFORMATION.
Since the membership of CNA is so diverse, and separated geographically, it may be feasibly impossible for our members to meet and get to know one another. This section will highlight a member, or members, in each newsletter, providing a brief background of the person(s), so the membership may know a little about the person(s). It will be 100% voluntary. The officers and board members were first to provide their background, followed by the charter, then the regular members.
The CNA is privileged is have members of various ethnic, economic, political, and educational backgrounds. Among the mix are: business executives, lawyers, medical doctors, and PhD’s in religion, education, science, and government. The core of the CNA remains the “average” person, with numismatic interests, but it is interesting to know that such a variety of collectors are on our membership rolls, such as:

COUNTERFEITS ARE IN THE MARKETS !!
More now than ever, coin dealers and collectors are faced with the possibility that their purchase of an expensive coin could be counterfeit. What has happened to create this very serious issue?
Technology, combined with governments who do not criminalize the manufacture of these coins, are the reasons!!
Counterfeits are not new! For years, skilled hands have added mint marks and altered dates, but this new technology can produce excellent copies in large quantities. For example, observe the following:
There seems to be a series of counterfeit 1897 pesos, all three varieties, in the marketplace. The weight and dimensions of this particular counterfeit 1897 Cuban Peso are perfect. The metal is correct, the dies have no obvious “tells” and it has a frosty finish and a few bag marks. A careful examination of these coins shows inconsistencies in the crispness of the strike and the apparent condition, which could be observed only with a microscope. It helps if you have an authentic gem coin to use as a standard for comparison. Superimposed photographic negatives show a near perfect correspondence of detail.
COIN WORLD, in the
December 1, December 8, and December 15, 2008 issues, addresses the counterfeit
coins that are being manufactured in
He is also unconcerned about his coins being sold on EBay.
He employs up to 30 people and his equipment is dated. Imagine the quality of his counterfeit coins when he modernizes his equipment.
It is recommended that all dealers and collectors review these three Coin World articles, especially the latter, which illustrates the PCGS blue-label holder, designed to insure the integrity of the certification.
The American Numismatic Association recently released the following information to its members, regarding the prolific introduction of counterfeit coins in the marketplace.
counterfeit operations have sprung up across the world, particularly in
collectors and the integrity of honest dealers.
Below are some links that look at counterfeiting in greater detail, including an eye-opening article in Coin World exploring how new counterfeit material is produced and finds its way into the United
States market. In addition, the ANA will be developing a comprehensive online resource guide, offering counterfeit detection courses at Summer Seminar and conventions, and creating an exhibit exploring modern counterfeiting. An educated numismatic community is the best defense against this widespread problem; we encourage everyone who loves the hobby to increase their awareness.

They were issued in the amount of One Peso (Pick #61), 5 Pesos (Pick #62), 10 Pesos (Pick #63), and 20 Pesos (Pick #64). These were printed in 1869 and they all have rubber stamp signatures.
They were not legal tender and were only convertible into Bonds of the Republic, which did not exist at the time of issue.
The poor workers of the time would buy and gather these receipts until they had enough to pay for a bond, the smallest amount being 100 Pesos, a steep sum in those days. With these “receipts/bills”, one could buy the desired bonds at 25 % of their value.
The entire, and only, issue was lithographed in
total cost of the project was $248.00 . The total
value of the issue was 100,000 Pesos. The only difference between them was the
color and denomination. One Peso was black, 5 Peso blue, 10 Peso green, and 20 Peso
was red. Afterwards, receipts were written from a regular receipt booklet like
the one shown here, and sold in

NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE FOUNDING OF
BANCO NACIONAL DE CUBA IN 1901, by Richard Becker, CNA Director.
Sometime ago, I purchased a
rather interesting bank check drawn on the NORTH AMERICAN TRUST COMPANY of
Havana, Cuba, dated June 7th 1899. A note that was included with the
check stated “NORTH AMERICAN TRUST COMPANY became the BANCO
With this minimal information in hand, I began an interesting search on the internet and was able to fill in a little bit more information. I used several search engines, but most of the time, they led me back to several different articles written in the NEW YOK TIMES (NYT) during the mid–1890’s. These articles will be identified by date when properly needed by (NYT, date). What I have gleaned so far is probably minimal compared to what can be found if additional research is done, but will give us a brief idea concerning the background and the beginning of Banco Nacional de Cuba.
Our story starts in mid-December of 1895 when the (NYT-12/14/95) stated that “It was reported that the property of the Jervis-Conklin Mortgage Trust Company, with assets of more than $10,000,000, and the North American Trust Company merged. Samuel M. Jervis, who was the president of Jervis-Conklin Mortgage Trust, then assumed the presidency of the new company (still named) the North American Trust Company”. (NYT- 12/14/95) The North American Trust Company was organized in 1885 with original capital of $250,000. When I searched for information about Jervis-Conklin, nothing came up, but further searching may prove more fruitful).
In the mid 1890’s, far away
from the hustle and bustle of New York City, the cries of “Viva la Revolucion,
and Viva Cuba Libre” were again being heard across Cuba. Although the ten year
war (1868-1878), and La Guerra Chiquita (1878-1880) had not ended in peaceful
settlement and freedom from
There are no further references in the New York Times about the North American Trust Company, until an article appeared (NYT-1/20/98) that stated “Samuel M. Jervis, who has heretofore been President of the North American Trust Company, resigned from his position in favor of Col. Trenholm, and will hereafter devote himself more especially to the International business of the company. His new title will be as Vice-President. Mr. Jervis’s relations with North American Trust Company will not only be unchanged, but still more strongly connected both as an officer and as a stock holder”.
I found nothing more about
Mr. Jervis or of the North American Trust Company until, in big bold type, a
dateline (NYT-8/15/98) jumped on my computer screen. It read “North American
Trust Company establishes an agency in

FROM THE KITCHEN: The following recipes are courtesy of Cubanfoodmarket.com
· Two boneless sirloin steaks, cut very thin, 10-12 oz. each
· Juice of one lemon
· Three cloves of garlic, mashed
· ½ cup of diced white onions
· ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
· One teaspoon salt, and one tablespoon of olive oil
Rub the chopped garlic on the surface of both steaks. Add the lemon juice, and cover with plastic wrap. Marinade in the refrigerator for about an hour. Heat the olive oil in a shallow frying pan. Add salt (to taste), and fry quickly on both sides until done.
Place cooked steaks on serving plates and top with chopped parsley and onions. Garnish with a wedge of lemon. Serve with white rice and fried Julianne potatoes.
· 2 ½ lbs. fresh pork
· Four cloves of garlic
· Juice from two limes
· One teaspoon salt
· Juice from one sour orange
· ¼ teaspoon of pepper
Cut pork into 1 ½ inch cubes. Smash garlic in bowl, adding lime juice, sour orange juice, salt, and pepper. Marinade pork in this mix for three hours. Save marinade for basting when cooking.
Cook in oven for two hours at 200 degrees. Brown in broiler for braised appearance.
Serve with marinade on the side.
You may prefer to fry the pork rather than oven-bake.
In this case: cut pork in 1 inch cubes, leaving fat in the meat. In a pot pan, place two cups of water and 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring the water to a rapid boil and put in the pork. Do not cover. Let boil at low heat until all the water has evaporated and only the pork fat is in the bottom of the pan.
Continue cooking in the pork fat, stirring at times, until the chunks are golden brown. When done, remove and drain fat using paper towels.
Serve with sauce prepared with garlic, lime juice, sour orange juice, salt, and pepper.
Serve with white rice and apple sauce.
CUBAN CUSTARD “NATILLA”
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract * 4 cups of milk (whole)
* 1 cup of sugar * 6 egg yolks
* 4 tablespoons of corn starch * ½ teaspoon salt
In bowl, mix 6 egg yolks, 1 cup of milk, and 4 tablespoons of corn starch. Stir well and strain.
In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the milk, sugar, and salt. Mix well and cook over medium heat. When hot, add the egg mix. Lower the heat to low and continue stirring at a fast pace, until thick. Take off heat and mix in the vanilla extract. Let cool (IMPORTANT) before placing in the refrigerator. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
# 1 RC sent the following email.
I am wondering if you or your members have knowledge of a 5 centavo coin made (it seems certain) of plastic. (A photo of a 1968 5 centavo accompanied this email). It seems slightly smaller in diameter and a bit thicker than a “normal” aluminum 5 centavo piece. But, it weighs almost exactly the same.
Do I have play money, a counterfeit, or some odd, actual coin here?
Any information you might be able to provide would be great appreciated.
Response by Frank Putrow.
Thank you for the email regarding the suspect Cuban 1968 5 centavo, possibly made of plastic.
This is the first that I have heard of this.
My first guess would be that someone dipped it into a plastic solution, like plastic melted by acetone. In this case, the ridges would probably have a "filled in" appearance.
The aluminum 1968 5 centavo coin specification is 21mm. If it was dipped, the size would be at least 21mm, and probably 21 1/2mm. Do you have a micrometer to measure it?
If the item was mine, I would get a nail file, and file down a place on the edge. If it is plastic coated, you will see the bright aluminum after a few strokes. The image of the coin reveals that the coin is in pretty bad shape, so a small file mark should make little difference.
If you still think that it is plastic throughout, I will do some research.
You are correct!
The coin is nearly the precise diameter, thickness and weight of a real aluminum one. And the details are not less noticeably distinct. So I made a minor edge scraping and BINGO! It is shiny aluminum under a thin layer of plastic!
Thanks for helping me solve the mystery.
The question I now have is: why would someone do this? Just fooling around or some other purpose that might be interesting?”
#2 JI sent the following email:
I have a question about a 1962 Cuban coin, about the size of a US half dollar. When I looked at the pictures of all the national heroes who are on Cuban coins, I realized that the picture on this particular coin was missing from the pictures listed. Is there a way that I can find out who is on this coin? I was told it was uncirculated for many years.

Thanks for the response.
did some further research, and discovered that there was indeed a 40 centavo
minted in 1962. There were 15,250,000 minted in at the Kremnica mint in
This also was the first year that the Cuban 40 centavo was not minted in silver, but rather nickel (.25) and copper (.75)

And finally, J.I.:
I saw that the spelling was Gornaron on two numismatic sites; and also have seen Gomaran.
The face does not look anything like Fidel Castro by any stretch. And, it does resemble in profile the pictures that I have seen of Camilo Cienfuegos more than it resembles any other of the faces I have seen.

In the meantime, here are some helpful hints that may improve any problems you may have.
1. A problem is that some ISP providers, such as AOL, retain the Pages of Websites on your computer in the internet cache, to speed up transmission. If you are an AOL subscriber, “REFRESH” your explorer connection by hitting “F5” key while you are on the page that does not appear to be current. Make sure that you are using the latest version of AOL, which is 9.0
2. Install Adobe Acrobat, including Adobe Reader 7.0. It is a free download, and available at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
NOTE: Stan has also made two enhancements on our CNA websites that are especially useful to EBay users.
A. Access the CNA website at www.cubanumis.com, then AUCTIONS.
There are three options to access EBay by three categories (coins, paper, medals…).
B. If you are a seller on EBay, access AUCTIONS, and follow the instructions to place
the special coded message in the body of your listing. An interested reader of your
listing will have a simple access to the CNA website from your listing. For an
