Money Talks Speakers Wanted for Denver World’s Fair of Money
American Numismatic Association (ANA) members are encouraged to share their ideas and research with fellow hobbyists by delivering a Money Talks presentation at the 2017 World’s Fair of Money® in Denver, Colo., Aug. 1-5 at the Colorado Convention Center. Those interested in presenting can submit an online proposal here. Proposals are due no later than May 15.
The informative 30- to 45-minute presentations are presented by some of the hobby's most noted authorities, and allow collectors to share their expertise with the numismatic community. Presentations from previous shows include: Trends that are Shaping the Coin Collecting Hobby Today; Double Dimes and the Amazing Discovery at the Carson City Mint; Announcing a New Grading System; and more.
Money Talks presentations should be accompanied by digital images or slides. Speakers should arrive 15 minutes prior to their presentation to set-up. Contact Sam Gelberd, the ANA's numismatic educator, at (719) 482-9846 for additional information.
Proposals can be submitted online, [or] emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
E-Sylum readers are just the right brainy bunch to fill the bill. Share your knowledge with fellow collectors, and sign up!
I recall one of the first Money Talks events. I believe it was at the 1982 Boston convention. It was called "Little Theatre" then. I met a man from Nebraska named Bob Kincaid who spoke about his research on U.S. Encased Postage Stamps. Later I joined him on a pilgrimage to the gravesite of Encased Postage inventor John Gault at Mt. Auburn cemetery. In the years to follow Bob and I would team up with researcher Fred Reed for Fred's book on the topic. -Editor
