David Crenshaw of Whitman sent me a copy of the press release for the upcoming Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo.
A few noteworthy highlights are:
Q. David Bowers: The ANA and Me. The legendary numismatist, whose involvement dates to his first bourse table in 1955, will talk about what the organization has meant to him.
An exhibit marking the 10th anniversary of the Sacagawea Dollar
A special presentation by Odyssey Marine Exploration about shipwreck coin treasures
"Shipwreck! Pirates and Treasure," a multi-media exhibit housed at the Maryland Science Center on Baltimore's Inner Harbor
Below are related excerpts from the press release.
Shipwreck, pirates and sunken treasure are among the highlights when the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo opens here on Thursday, November 4 continuing through Sunday, November 7 in Hall A of the Baltimore Convention Center at One West Pratt Street. It will include more than 1,000 dealers.
Q. David Bowers: The ANA and Me.
The legendary numismatist, whose involvement dates to his first bourse table in 1955, will talk about what the organization has meant to him. By special arrangement with the ANA and Stack's, a deeply discounted membership fee opportunity will also be included.
Sacagawea Dollar Exhibit
An exhibit marking the 10th anniversary of the Sacagawea Dollar will also be a centerpiece of the Expo. It will include Glenna Goodacre's original "Terra Cotta Coin Study," a preliminary bas-relief that dates to 1999.
The compelling stories of some of the world's most famous shipwrecks, their treasure of historic artifacts and the buccaneers who plied the sea lanes during the age of sale are the topic of a special presentation by Odyssey Marine Exploration on Friday, November 5 at 11:30am.
Shipwreck! Pirates and Treasure, a multi-media exhibit housed at the Maryland Science Center on Baltimore's Inner Harbor-just a short walk from the bourse floor-includes artifacts from a number of shipwrecks along with high-definition video and photographs from numerous deep sea sites. Registered dealers will each receive a voucher good for admission to the exhibit on November 5 from 2pm until 8pm.
"Our coin dealers are a group of people who know and love their history. By teaming up with Odyssey and the Maryland Science Center, we're pleased that we can give each dealer the chance to see this fascinating exhibit with artifacts that are certain to be of interest," Expo General Manager David Crenshaw said.
Mr. Crenshaw said a mini-display of artifacts will be at the Expo throughout. Members of Odyssey's staff will answer questions both at the 11:30 presentation and at the main exhibit at the Science Center.
