Dave Bowers forwarded this release about a blockbuster program planned for April at a combined meeting of the New England Currency Club and the Boston Numismatic Society.
An Evening with Anne Bentley, Dave Sundman, and Dave Bowers
Monday, April 11
You are invited to see and hear THREE WINNERS in Waltham, Massachusetts, on April 11. A great evening program about coins, tokens, medals, and paper money featuring three well-known numismatic personalities awaits you at a special combined meeting of the New England Currency Club and the Boston Numismatic Society. The BNS, founded in 1860, is one of America's oldest institutions in the field.
The three presenters will be there to share their experiences, comment on the marketplace, perhaps predict or try to predict the future, and answer your questions. Come and be prepared to have a great time. You will meet:
Anne Bentley: Curator at the Massachusetts Historical Society, and custodian of some of America's greatest numismatic treasures, who last summer presented a highly-acclaimed program for the ANA. She is highly acclaimend as an author, writer, researcher, and speaker. You probably know that, founded in 1791, the MHS is the oldest historical society in America.
David M. Sundman: Chief executive of Littleton Coin Co., with over 300 employees, one of America's largest rare coin dealerships. Littleton has found many "treasures" in the hands of the public—including the very first National Bank Note ever issued! He will share some of his finds with you, tell of the depth and breadth of the market, and more.
Q. David Bowers: Chairman emeritus of Stack's-Bowers Numismatics and numismatic director of Whitman Publishing, LLC, who began his dealership as a young teenager in 1953, and since that time has handled just about every rarity in the book and most of the major collections—Norweb, Eliasberg, Bass, and more. Dave is the author of over 50 books, a popular columnist, and past president of the ANA and PNG.
The program will be about an hour or so. Complimentary beverages and snacks await you. Wait! There's more! Whitman Publishing Company will give as door prizes some hot-off-the-press copies of the brand new 2012 edition of A Guide Book of U.S. Coins, these in addition to other great books! You may be a winner! We look forward to seeing you!
The event begins at 7:15 in the church hall of the Trinity Congregational Church, 730 Main St. (Rt 20) Waltham, Massachusetts. You are cordially invited. If you are not a member of the sponsoring clubs, please reserve space for you and your friends
