My first stop at the show was the exhibit area, conveniently located near the front of the hall. Among the first people I encountered was Clifford Mishler, who appeared Zelig-like nearly everywhere I turned at the show. He's got an impressive row of ribbons.

While there were fewer categories and exhibits than a normal World's Fair of Money, there was still a lot of nice exhibits to see. I took many photos and here's a sampling.
The coinage of Lebanon
This two-case exhibit held five different Civil War postage scrip notes with actual stamps. Great rarities I never got to add to my own collection. Impressive.
An exhibit of U.S. Patent models for coin-counting devices.
Auction Catalogs of the Albert A. Grinnell Collection of United States Paper Money
Here's the only full-bore numismatic literature exhibit I saw.
