2021 C4 National Convention / Whitman Expo – November 18-20


The 28th annual C4 Convention is scheduled for November 18 through 20.  C4 once again has a full schedule of events planned. It starts with the reception on Thursday evening. The cost to attend is $25 per person, tickets are available at the C4 table or at the reception door.

After the reception, the doors will open for the presentation.  We can not stress strongly enough how important and interesting these presentations will be.

Note:  The Stacks-Bowers Auction will not be held live at the Convention this year due to COVID concerns, however, all coins in the sessions will be available for lot viewing during the show.  The Friday Night auction has now become an event of four Colonial Happenings in the Camden Room of the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel from 8-11 PM.
