At any major numismatic event, there are a number of features and activities, that although an essential part of the overall experience, by their very nature can not be self sustaining. Thanks to the generosity of progressive members of the numismatic community, a number of these convention features have been made possible or enhanced by sponsorships undertaken by firms and individuals deserving of special recognition from the collecting fraternity. Booth holder convention sponsors are identified by special signage in their booths, as well as special ribbons attached to their convention credentials:

Without the generosity of our convention sponsors, a number of the enhancements that make the Central States Numismatic Society convention a special event would not be possible. Our President and Board join the entire convention staff in extending our thanks for their selfless support. If you’ll be attending the convention in person, please take a moment to visit their booths, all marked with special signage, to thank them in person. To learn how you can become a convention sponsor please write to email@example.com
