This week I received a postcard in the mail announcing that the Whitman Baltimore Coin and Collectibles Expo will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center, March 26-28. The card announces that the official auction will be conducted by Bowers and Merena Auctions as well as on-site grading services by DGS, ICG, NCG, and PCGS.
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing will be at the show with its Billion Dollar Exhibit and the antique Spider Press. BEP will be selling the second print in the Lincoln Bicentennial Intaglio Print Series. If the past is any indication, BEP will be selling special versions of the print that was printed at the show on the Spider Press. The limited edition will be noted on the print and sold by daily lottery. You will have to be present to win.
In addition to the coins and currency will be able to Meet Mr. Lincoln presented by Lincoln re-enactor, Dennis Boggs. Boggs presents “presents an enlightening, informative, and educational look at the life of the 16th President as it might have been told by Abraham Lincoln himself.” Souvenir photos with Mr. Lincoln will be taken.
