CENTRAL AMERICA SALE CANCELED  

   Sotheby's has canceled the sale of artifacts from the S. S. 
   Central America, originally scheduled for December 8th. 
   Their web site displays this notice:  "Sotheby's has been 
   advised by its consignors that the sale of the Treasure from 
   the SS Central America must be canceled. The United States 
   Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in confidential 
   proceedings, issued an injunction preventing the sale. 
   Accordingly, the sale will not take place as scheduled but 
   Sotheby's is hopeful that a sale of this extraordinary property 
   will take place in the near future. "  

   QUICK QUIZ:   This is not the first numismatic auction to 
   have been planned and published only to be canceled at 
   the last minute.  The auction catalogs for "sales that never 
   were" would  make an interesting mini-collection.  So ... 
   can you name some of these sales and the reasons for their 
   cancellation?
