The ANA Convention Numismatic Theater schedule includes a first Mint doubleheader. Joel Orosz and I will be presenting "Pictures of the First United States Mint" at 2pm, Friday, 8/13, in Room 209.
Following at 3pm in the same room will be a two-hour panel discussion on “The Development and Use of the Screw Press for Coin Production,” led by Brad Karoleff, which will discuss different aspects of early minting technology in the United States.
Panel participants will be Messrs. Dannreuther, Doty, Eckberg, Julian, Mudd, and Sholley - an all-star panel if there ever was one. Joel and I will have the rare luxury of deferring any hard questions to the following session!
The full schedule is at:
These are two must-see events for U.S. numismatic researchers! But there will be plenty of must-see events at the convention, not the least of which will be the Numismatic Bibliomania Society events. And if that's not enough, consider the Sundman Lecture luncheon. The following is taken from an event flyer sent in by Susan Mc Millan, Education Project Manager for the American Numismatic Association.
