Keep the Change, An Afternoon with Harley Spiller and his new book Keep the Change: A Collector's Tales of Lucky Pennies, Counterfeit C-Notes and other Curious Currency
Spiller has amassed one of America's most extensive collections of unusual financial artifacts along with a wealth of anecdotes and quirky historical details about U.S. currency.
The Museum is hosting an informative and entertaining talk with Mr. Spiller. His talk, like his new book, offers a highly selective tour through currency legends and lore that will inspire a new sense of wonder at the bills that pass through ones hands every day. Audience members are invited to bring their own special coins to swap stories over refreshments following the presentation.
Copies of the book, published by Princeton University Architectural Press will be available for sale.
Light refreshments served after the talk
