Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Wow! The Outstanding WWI Online Exhibition of the American Numismatic Association

The American Numismatic Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect coins, paper money, and related items. We serve coin collectors, the academic community, and the general public with an interest in numismatics.

The association operates the Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which hosted a major World War One exhibition, "Trenches to Treaties," through 2018. I've only recently discovered that they have kept much of the exhibits and documentation of the event available online. Go here to access the material, and be sure to explore the "Virtual Exhibit."

Here's a sampler of what you can access online. For most of the images you will need to click on them to expand them so you can fully appreciate the object.
