This year’s International Paper Money Show will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, from June 13 to 16 at the Sheraton Kansas City Crown Center Hotel.

In addition to a bourse and multi-session auction, the annual event also labels itself “the paper money speaking event of the year.”

Show organizers are inviting talks on topics involving fiscal paper or with a tie-in to it. The presentations will be made hourly on Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15. Each speaker is allotted 50 minutes, including time for questions.
