2011 Higgins Museum National Bank Note Seminar

The event, set for Aug. 10-11, will feature presentations by four nationally recognized authorities in the field: Mark Anderson, president of the Society of Paper Money Collectors; Peter Huntoon, a prolific 40-year researcher and author in the field; Lee Lofthus, an award-winning researcher and author in the field; and Jim Simek, secretary of the Professional Currency Dealers Association.

The speakers will cover a wide range of topics. Anderson will offer observations on the relationship between capital formation needs and note issuance during the National Bank Note Era. Huntoon will explore the story of America’s most extravagant collector, Col. Edward Green and the Series of 1929 sheets. Lofthus will offer up new and unpublished revelations about “outstanding circulation” data on National Bank Note issues. Simek will present new, peculiar and interesting facts about minute overprinting differences in Series 1929 issues.

The registration fee for the seminar, which includes a catered lunch and light snacks during morning and afternoon breaks, is $50, or $40 for members of the SPMC, PCDA and CSNS organizations.
