David Fanning forwarded this press release about free online bidding and armchair lot viewing options in Kolbe & Fanning's 2012 New York book sale.
Kolbe & Fanning Numismatic Booksellers will be holding their 2012 New York Book Sale at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City on Saturday afternoon, January 7. As a Kolbe & Fanning regular, you may have already received a copy of the printed catalogue, but we wanted to bring to your attention some additional news.
As in the past, a PDF version of the catalogue is available from the Kolbe & Fanning website at www.numislit.com. The PDF is handy for searching for items by keywords or when your copy of the catalogue is not conveniently at hand.
For the first time, we will be offering free live internet bidding for this auction via the-saleroom.com. Also, every lot is illustrated in this version of the catalogue and the illustrations can easily be enlarged. Through the-saleroom.com, you may register to bid in the auction, and you may leave absentee bids to be executed by the-saleroom.com staff who will attend the auction. In addition, you may watch the auction take place in real time and directly participate in the live event via your computer. While we have offered this service before, this year we are offering it at no additional cost to bidders. The usual terms apply, but no additional fees will be incurred by bidders who participate through the-saleroom.com.
To register to participate in the online auction, go to the-saleroom.com and create an account (a credit card will be necessary to bid in the sale, though other forms of payment may be used). You will find Kolbe & Fanning listed in the directory of auction houses. The online catalogue is easy to navigate and, as previously mentioned, every lot is illustrated.
