As the the chief scientist on the 1980's mission that first located and recovered the treasure of the SS Central America (and also worked on the 2014 recovery
efforts), Bob Evans catalogued and conserved every coin from the fabled shipwreck and is the top numismatic expert on the treasure. He provided this announcement of his upcoming talk at the Central
Ohio Numismatic Association. Our readers in the area are encouraged to attend. -Editor
I will be giving a PowerPoint presentation about the SS Central America treasure Wednesday evening at 7PM, June 20, at the monthly meeting of the Central Ohio Numismatic Association (CONA.)
Readers are cordially invited. I am told it is open to all, and they frequently have non-members in attendance. The meeting is held at the Oakstone Academy (Oakstone High School on some maps) in
Westerville, at 900 Club Dr.
This will be primarily a numismatic and historical talk, with considerable technical coin stuff, but it's pretty interesting coin stuff with lots of relevance to the history of the treasure.
And I will be discussing the discoveries I have made during the last five months in the curatorial lab, taking the rust and minerals off the gold coins and preparing the treasure for market.
It is my first Central Ohio talk about the treasure since the 90s. I will also be giving a Money Talks presentation at the ANA World's Fair of Money in Philadelphia, on Friday, August 17, at
Dwight Manley, Christina Pascucci and Bob Evans
This is a great opportunity to meet and hear directly from the one person with direct hands-on knowledge of every coin and gold bar recovered from the famous 1857 wreck.
