The Santa Maria Coin Club was organized February 1957,
by several men and women after serving in the armed forces. They included
Jay Grose, Bill Sexton, Clyde and T. Billings, Ed and Marge Fitzimmons and
Jack Lema. Bill sexton was known as the "Penny King" because he had
a room full of itemized pennies.
