TO COUNTERFEIT IS DEATH
with Ray Williams
"To Counterfeit is Death" is a seldom enforced threat which is seen on many of the bills issued during our British Colonial and Confederation eras. Ray Williams will be discussing the economic climate making paper money necessary, the counterfeiting of bills and the anti-counterfeiting measures taken, the famous (and not so famous) colonists involved with paper money, and interesting stories involving some of the money being exhibited. Examples of the paper currency discussed will be made available for close examination.
There is a $30 entrance fee for members and a $50 entrance fee for nonmembers.
Space is limited. Please RSVP to Emma Pratte at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-571-4470, ext. 117. For more information on this talk, please visit the ANS Website, numismatics.org.
