The International Paper Money Show will be held at the Sheraton Crown
Center in Kansas City, Missouri, for the second time from June 7 to
10. The bourse area will be open Thursday, June 7 from noon to 6 p.m.,
Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. Admission for the three days is $7 per person or $20 per family.
An educational program will start at 10 a.m. on both Friday and
Saturday. The 11 speakers will offer presentations on subjects
including counterfeit notes, world paper money, and a range of topics
devoted to the paper money of the United States.
The Lyn Knight auction will have world and U.S. sessions. A
highlight of the latter, on June 8, will be a stand-alone catalog
offering the Doris A. Bart Collection of $2 United States paper money
errors, type notes, autographs, and fancy numbers. Bart assembled what
is being called “the finest collection of misprints on the two dollar
denomination over a period of four decades.” She is the second person
in history to own inverted overprints on all three series dates of
United States notes — 1928, 1953, and 1963 — including the unique
1928D note and the extremely rare 1953 note.
The collection also includes several large-size errors, with a few
tracing their pedigree to the Albert A. Grinnell sales of the 1940s.
Other large-size errors include what is billed as “America’s $3 Bill”
— the Series 1918 $2/$1 double-denomination note.
Small-size errors in the Bart Collection run the gamut from a wildly
doubled overprinted Series 1976 Federal Reserve note, spectacular
printed folds, rare examples of the missing first printing (blank
back), and notes with the third printing (overprint) on the back.
