CONVENTION ATTENDEES… This is the tentative schedule for the C4 Convention at the time it was submitted to your editor. Please double check the schedule and room locations when you arrive at the hotel.
C-4 Vermont Happening: We are holding a Vermont "Happening" on Friday November 20, 2009 at 1:30PM during the C-4 Convention. Please bring all your varieties to share with your fellow C-4 Members. Jack Howes will be photographing examples for a new set of Vermont Plates being assembled. We are particularly interested in die states, variety and/or condition rarities and any other unusual Vermont pieces.
Students of the Counterfeit British Halfpence and Farthings will take note that there is a study group meeting at 5:30 on Friday afternoon in Carver Salon III. The topic for discussion and study is about “Mules”… Those coins with impossible dates – coins with GEO II obverses and Geo III reverse dates, and vica versa. Please bring any and all you have for study and a possible publication.
At 12:30 Saturday afternoon, there will be a Colonial Happening where the object of discussion, study and photography will be the Camel head NJ Coppers with undertypes. These are the Maris 56-n, 57-n and 58-n. Whether you have one or a hundred, please plan to bring them with you for study at this event.
Although there is not a formal study on the topic, Syd Martin will be present at the convention and if any have examples of Rosa Americana coinage that Syd has not seen, please bring them with you so that the eventual publication of his book will be as thorough and accurate as possible. Again, if you have just one, or a hundred, please bring them along for Syd to study and possibly photograph.
That being said, if you have any coins that you have questions about, interesting planchets or dies
