Talisman & Coiner were invited to give our talks about the themes of Money, Mayhem and Might at the spring coin show held by the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) in Monroeville, just outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Their bi-annual shows attract approximately 100 coin dealers from around the country.
This was an exceptionally busy show, and has been part of the regional coin collecting experience since 1978.
08/09 - 08/11 Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
2018 - 2019
The Talisman & Coiner team headed off to Waynesboro, Pennsylvania on Sunday, August 11th, to meet and greet sutlers, minstrels and reenactors at the Renfrew Park Civil War Reenactment. The duo talked up the coming book "Money, Mayhem and Might" with folks who are deeply interested in living history. This weekend's lovely weather provided the setting for sharing the experience with comrades portraying soldiers of the north and south — culminating on Sunday with a skirmish accompanied by the concussion of cannon.

The Talisman & Coiner Duo have given talks and presentations around the mid-Atlantic region from last September through May of this year. For the most part, we have been in areas that embrace the theater of the Civil War in and about West Virginia, Western Maryland and Western Pennsylvania. This includes Shepherdstown, WV, Harpers Ferry, WV, Harrisburg and Gettysburg, PA and Washington County, MD.
Our talks have always featured images and story rich power point presentations, ample displays, as well as, food and treats graciously provided by local vendors. The photos below include a few examples of money from the Civil War era, and other curiosities as we have come across them.
