NBS To Hold Benefit Auction Sale at ANA Convention
As is customary, the NBS will conduct a benefit auction sale during its annual meeting at the ANA Convention in Chicago. This year’s event will be on
Friday, August 16, at 11:30am in room 44. Hijinx and hilarity are no strangers to these events, and even non-bidders in the audience will be highly
entertained. David Fanning has expertly cataloged 50 donated lots, and hardcopies of the auction sale catalog will be available at the event. A few
Lot 18: Complete set of Empire Topics & Review (donated by David Gladfelter). This lot includes all 19 issues of the Q. David Bowers house publications
prior to Rare Coin Review, covering the period 1958-1964.
Lot 30: An original set of Loubat’s magnum opus on American medals, The Medallic History of the United States, treating the period 1776-1876 (donated
by Tony Lopez). Loubat spared no expense in the research and production of this two-volume set, and, if the content itself isn’t compelling enough, the
physical presentation ought to do the trick.
Lot 39: Hardbound copy of Pine Tree’s GENA ’74 auction sale catalog. Rare in this format. The sale includes the Morris Judd-1 silver center cent, as
catalogued by Walter Breen, a coin which has captured considerable attention as of late. Donated by Dan Hamelberg.
Lot 47: The first 16 auction sale catalogs of Charles Steigerwalt, nine of which are hand-priced, bound in one volume. Donated by Len Augsburger.
There's something for everyone in this short sale, including the first plated U.S. numismatic auction sale catalog, Kraay & Hirmer's Greek
Coins, hardbound and Deluxe Leatherbound auction catalogs, and works on U.S. colonial coinage and paper money. -Editor
