LITTLETON, NH – Excited voices filled the halls as second & third graders from Lafayette Regional School in Franconia, NH, and parents, enjoyed a trip to Littleton Coin Company on Wednesday, May 18th. Before the group left, company president David Sundman presented them with a signed copy of A Decent Boldness – The Life Achievement of Maynard Sundman and 100 Greatest American Currency Notes for the Lafayette School's library.
