WHITMAN ATLANTA COIN AND COLLECTIBLES EXPO EVENTS

The Whitman Coin and Collectibles Atlanta Expo will be at the Cobb
Galleria Centre in Northwest Atlanta, Thursday-Saturday, October 5–7.
Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded a press release for the
event, and there are a number of activities that may appeal to
E-Sylum subscribers. Here are a few excerpts:

“This year we’re fortunate to exhibit one of the world’s finest
collections of historic Southern business documents and artifacts,”
said Crenshaw. “The Frank O. Walsh Collection includes Southern
currency, stocks and bonds, coins, and advertising memorabilia.
This is part of a complete exhibit called ‘Old Money, New Money:
The Rise of Southern Capitalism,’ on display at the Atlanta History
Center, just a few minutes from the show.”

"Numismatic author Q. David Bowers, will also delve “Inside the
ABNCo. Archives,” telling the fascinating story of surprises and
treasures he discovered in the company’s recently unveiled holdings."

"In addition to the Frank O. Walsh Collection, this year’s exhibits
include the famous King of Siam set of Proof copper, silver, and
gold coins, presented by President Andrew Jackson to the king of
Siam in 1836. The monarch’s son, Rama IV, was the subject of the
book Anna and the King of Siam, and the famous Broadway musical,
“The King and I.” Paper money exhibits include Civil War–era
“Montgomery” notes, and selections from the ABNCo archives."

Numismatic artist Chuck Daughtrey will be on hand, working on his
latest pencil portrait—that of coin designer Adolph A. Weinman.
Noted for its detailed, photorealistic style, Daughtrey’s portraits
have appeared in recent Whitman books including A Guide Book of
Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cents and A Guide Book of Washington
and State Quarters.

His dual portrait of R.S. Yeoman and Kenneth Bressett was featured
in the (sold-out) 2007 Limited Edition Red Book, as well as on the
nickel-silver medal issued to commemorate the Red Book’s 60th year.
Collectors of Daughtrey’s limited-edition prints can watch the
artist in action at the show.

The Atlanta Show will also have special programs for young
collectors, and autograph sessions with Whitman authors including
the “dean of American numismatics,” Q. David Bowers."
