David Fanning forwarded this report on the recently-concluded Kolbe & Fanning numismatic ephemera sale.
Kolbe & Fanning are pleased to announce the successful completion of our first internet sale of numismatic ephemera. The sale, which included a diverse offering of numismatic memorabilia, letters, circulars, photos, promotional materials and other miscellanea, was enthusiastically received and brought 135% of the total estimated value of the lots.
The recently completed sale is the first of a projected series of internet sales of numismatic ephemera collected over the years by the firm’s founder, George F. Kolbe. It is anticipated that each sale will feature 100 lots, which will be posted on the firm’s website at www.numislit.com on a regular basis. We expect to hold the second sale sometime in March.
A few of the highlights in the first sale follow:
—A letter from Eliasberg to Mehl about the 1804 dollar brought $375
—A letter from B. Max Mehl to George Sexton, Jr. on CSA currency brought $325
—An early offering of Confederate stamps, notes & bonds brought $160
—Various promotional circulars issued by Lyman Low sold for between $70 and $225
—Frank Norton’s resignation notice from the AJN brought $220
We thank everyone who participated and look forward to next time.
