Duane Feisel has a token sale closing November 30, 2019. Here are some highlights from his recent email to bidders. -Editor
The listing for my upcoming mail bid sale has been published on-line (color version) by NTCA, and the b/w printed version in "Talkin’ Tokens" should soon be delivered
through the mail. Bids have already started to arrive – there seems to be a lot of interest in the great selection of diverse material being offered. By the way, if you are not
now a NTCA member and want membership information, please let me know – a variety of membership plans are available.
There have been a number of corrections – some major, some minor – to the original listing as sent out to my emailing list as well as what is published by NTCA. Please let me
know if you want me to email you a copy of the revised auction list.
All the posting of lot photos and descriptions has been completed to my photo hosting site – accessible at:
Additionally, a few photos of requested pieces have been added.
An impressive selection of lumber company tokens, mostly from the Terry Trantow estate, is part of the sale. Astute work by a dedicated collector in correcting the attribution
