The Numismatic Theatre is one of my favorite parts of an ANA convention. All of these look interesting, but the one on the construction of the Denver Mint caught my eye in particular. Together with the one on Michael Lanz' 34 Years at the Denver Mint, visitors could learn a lot of local lore not to be found easily elsewhere. And could someone please report back on just what Ostromecki's "Paranormal Coins and Currency" talk is about?
