Renowned experts help celebrate silver with upcoming workshop at Replacements, Ltd.
GREENSBORO, N.C., August 27, 2008 — Silver collectors, dealers, curators and casual aficionados have the chance to learn from world renowned experts while helping Replacements, Ltd. mark a special milestone. Silver Magazine, a bi-monthly publication produced by Page/Frederiksen Publishing (a division of Replacements, Ltd.), celebrates its fortieth year through the Silver Magazine 40th Anniversary Event coming up at Replacements September 25-27, 2008.
“This is really a chance to celebrate four decades of educating people about silver,” says Dean Six, Silver Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief. “For most people, collecting is more than a pastime, it’s a passion regardless of whether you’re an expert or just starting out. The event marks a great opportunity for beginners to learn silver basics and for collectors to broaden their knowledge base; we think it will be both fun and informative.”
The event will be divided into two sessions and includes exhibits of rare silver, tours and interactive workshops. The first session features presentations from American classical silver expert Joseph Brady and Danish silver expert Janet Drucker. The second session includes a four part workshop with D. Albert Soeffing, one of the premiere authorities on American silver.
Seating is by reservation due to limited space. The attendance fee for session one is $60 and $180 for session two (lunch and opening reception are included).
