Numismatic literature dealer George Kolbe writes:
Big E readers might like to know that color illustrations of over 100 additional lots in the January 9, 2010 auction sale of the Stack Family Library are available at:
Also, for the first time, live Internet bidding will be available at a Kolbe auction via the above link.
Live Internet bidding could be a good thing for the auctioneer and bidders alike. But the most important thing about having an Internet component to an auction is getting the information about the lots out in front of a much wider audience than would ordinarily see the catalog. Bringing new Internet bidders into the numismatic fold is a big reason for the success of firms such as Heritage. Hopefully, this feature will bring in new blood in addition to convenience.
Below are a couple sample lot illustrations.
Lot 99: Levick, Joseph N. T. Catalogue of American Coins, Medals, Tokens, Paper Money, Etc., From J. N. T. Levick’s cabinet. New York: Bangs, Merwin & Co., W. H. Arthur, Printer and stationer, April 27-29, 1865.
Lot 395: Georgii Mikhailovich, Grand Duke. Moneti Tzarstvovaniya Imperatora Petra I Do Alek-Sandra III/Coins Of The Reign Of Emperor Peter I To Alexander III. St. Petersburg, 1888-1914. Bound in thirteen numbered volumes
