GEORGE FREDERICK KOLBE AUCTION SALE 105: MARCH 20, 2008

[George Kolbe forwarded the following press release for
his 105th sale. -Editor]

On March 20, 2008 George Frederick Kolbe/Fine Numismatic
Books will sell at auction the Numismatic Library of Dr.
Dan Koppersmith, part three of the Alan M. Meghrig Library,
further selections from the library of Bob Vail, and other
notable properties.

Leading off the sale is the superb Koppersmith library,
which includes a complete set of the Numismatic Chronicle,
a complete run of the Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum, standard
works on ancient Greek coins in outstanding condition, and
important auction sale catalogues featuring archaic and
classical Greek coins. A nice consignment of works on British
and American numismatics follows. It features a fine original
set of Dalton and Hamer's Provincial Token-Coinage of the
18th Century, heavily annotated by a knowledgeable collector.

Complete sets of Barney Bluestone, New York Coin & Stamp Co.,
and J. C. Morgenthau sale catalogues are featured in the Bob
Vail consignment, which also includes an extensive run of
elusive United States Coin Company sales, among them a fine
1913 Malcolm Jackson sale with photographic plates. A consignment
of rare and obscure nineteenth century tracts on American paper
money and banking follows, including works by William Gouge,
Oliver Wolcott, Matthew Carey, Albert Gallatin, Martin Van
Buren, William Fessenden, and others. The sale concludes with
the third part of the Alan M. Meghrig library, featuring many
unusual works on American numismatics.

Copies of the printed catalogue may be obtained by sending
$15.00 to George Frederick Kolbe, P. O. Box 3100, Crestline,
CA 92325. Telephone: (909) 338-6527; Fax: (909) 338-6980;
Email: GFK@numislit.com. The catalogue will also be accessible
free of charge, several weeks before the sale, at the firm's
web site: www.numislit.com.

On a related front, George adds: "In the past month or so I
have been asked by a number of people if I was actually
retiring. Apparently, such a rumor is making the rounds,
despite zero factual basis. I am as busy as ever and hope
to continue to be so well into the future. 2008 promises to
be a banner year and we are already making plans for 2009!
Stay tuned for further details."
