George Cuhaj submitted this announcement of the upcoming sale of the Krause Publications photo archive. Thanks. This could be a great opportunity for the right researchers and collectors.
When the remaining staff of the old Krause Publication-F+W now AIM Media staff relocated to Stevens Point, Wis. (Some 30 miles away), the 700 E. State Street Building was purchased by the Iola Car Show. Slowly over the past two years cubicles and other equipment have been moved out and repurposed.
The Iola Historical Society and the Iola Car Show jointly share in proceeds of the sale of the abandoned portions of the numismatic library (and as you have read, the Newman Portal will benefit from Numismatic News going digital. The American Numismatic Society has benefited by accepting dealer Fixed price Lists which are not duplicated).
This left the Black & White photo archive for the 20th Century Standard Catalog coin books and the World Paper Money Standard Catalogs. There are 10x14 inch folders in the coin area organized by country political groups (just as in the catalog) or by issuing bank for the Paper Money section.
Those are now being offered on a as-is, first come-first served want list basis. Thick folders are $25, thin folders at $10 each. Plus postage in a box or uline envelopes. Email inquiries only to check on availability which will be confirmed. Not every photo found their way back into the country folder after the digitization process. Some folders may include negatives, veloxes, bluetones and other things involved in the production process. Payment arrangements will be outlined via email.
Library sales resume this week on eBay, including a special offering of 8x10 and 5x7 or so Assay Commission Meeting official photos from the 1960s and 1970s. Seller name:
