BEP Seeking 2010 Exhibit Invitations
By Bank Note Reporter

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing has announced that it is accepting invitations for it to attend 2010 numismatic events.

At selected events, the BEP displays its "Billion Dollar Exhibit," which features more than $1 billion of rare currency including sheets of $100,000 currency notes, Treasury Bonds, and Gold and Silver Certificates.

It also often showcases its Spider Press, an antique 19th-century currency press, where a technical expert on currency production conducts printing demonstrations; "Engravers Workbench," where a member of the BEP's Office of Engraving demonstrates the age-old art of hand engraving; and a "Mutilated Currency Exhibit," where a member of the BEP's Mutilated Currency and Redemption Division demonstrates the process for examining and redeeming damaged U.S. paper money.

Currency related items such as uncut sheets and intaglio print cards are also offered by the BEP at shows it attends.

Show sponsors, bourse chairmen or coordinators are required to sign a security agreement with the BEP's Office of Security prior to BEP's participation. The sponsoring organization also needs to provide a booth space of 35' x 40' minimum, transportation costs for exhibits and the spider press (if applicable) and products via secure transport, tables, table skirts, display cases and lamps, electricity, phone service, carpeting and drayage services with a maximum amount of support, protection and integrity for the BEP.

Organizations interested in the BEP's participation in their show need to submit a written request by the close of business on Aug. 14 to Karen Smith, Exhibit Coordinator, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, 14th and C Streets, SW, Suite 530-M, Washington, D.C. 20228; e-mail karen.smith@bep.treas.gov; telephone (202) 874-2108.
