Central States Numismatic Society will expand the speaker lineup for the CSNS convention’s headline educational program, “The Threat of Counterfeit Coins from China,” according to Kevin Foley, convention chairman.
The 72nd anniversary convention is set for April 26-30 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., a north Chicago suburb.
Greg DuBay will join Beth Deisher and Steve Roach of Coin World in the counterfeit forum at 4:30 p.m. April 28, Foley said.
“Dr. DuBay has done extensive in-person investigation and personal research in China, has actually visited counterfeit production facilities and includes counterfeit dies used for such production in his research collection,” said Foley. “This will be a ‘hands on’ presentation, with program participants able to see and examine Chinese counterfeits first hand as part of the talk.”
The show’s 250-booth bourse will be open to the public 2 to 7 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. Public hours will be preceded by a Professional Preview, open to collectors and dealers for a $75 registration fee, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday. The fee provides access to both the Wednesday Professional Numismatists Guild Day, as well as the Thursday Professional Preview.
Heritage will conduct the official show auction with sessions to be held Wednesday through Friday.
