George Kolbe forward this release about the Kolbe & Fanning February 2012 numismatic literature sale.
Kolbe & Fanning Numismatic Booksellers are pleased to announce their upcoming 124th mail-bid, telephone and email sale, closing on February 23, 2012. Due to a printer's overrun we are pleased to offer copies of the catalogue, while supplies last, at only $5.00 per copy, which scarcely begins to cover the costs of printing and postage.
The 8.5 by 11 inch catalogue comprises 104 pages, in which 1225 lots of rare and desirable numismatic publications are described in depth, generally accompanied by interesting and informative footnotes. Order a copy of the catalogue today by sending $5.00 to KOLBE & FANNING NUMISMATIC BOOKSELLERS LLC, 141 W JOHNSTOWN ROAD, GAHANNA OH 43230-2700. Money back if you are not satisfied. The catalogue is also accessible free of charge on the Kolbe & Fanning website at www.numislit.com.
The sale features a wide-ranging selection of interesting and elusive works on ancient, medieval and modern numismatics, as well as a goodly number of classic works on American numismatic topics.
The sale starts off with selections from the library of Dr. Russell Hibbs, which covers the numismatic spectrum. It is followed by over two dozen additional interesting consignments.
