NBS Benefit Auction at ANA

Image of books and catalogs depicting potemtial auction items

Dear fellow bibliomaniac,

Each year at the ANA World's Fair of Money, the Numismatic Bibliomania Society conducts a benefit auction to raise funds for the organization. All items sold are donated to the NBS by members and 100% of the proceeds go to the NBS treasury.

David Fanning has again graciously agreed to collect and catalog lots for the NBS Benefit Auction to be held at the ANA Convention in Philadelphia in August. Suggested lot value is $100 and up, but all donations will be accepted. A catalog will be compiled and distributed prior to the auction and absentee bid may be placed for those who cannot attend.

Highlights from last year's sale include a leather bound copy of Neil Musante's The Medallic Work of John Adams Bolen (donated by Dan Hamelberg), and a modern plated reprint of Henry Chapman's 1918 Bement sale (donated by George Kolbe).
