   The Money Tree sale of the library of the late Ken Lowe

   the NBS meeting.  Over 20 floor bidders and two very 
   active phone bidders participated.

   One of the most heavily bid items at the sale was lot 102, 
   Ken's 1994 Redbook, signed by over 75 numismatic 
   luminaries attending the 103rd ANA Convention in Detroit 
   that year.  Estimated at $100, the lot brought $450.  

   The hammer prices listed above do NOT include the
