NBS Benefit Auction 2020

I am delighted to report again this year, the membership stepped forward to ensure the financial health of the NBS through their support of the benefit auction. Our generous donors, enthusiastic bidders and the cataloging efforts of David and Maria Fanning produced $7035 for the treasury! The highlight of the auction was lot 14, Virgil Brand’s copy of Thomas Elder’s plated Wilson sale which drew the top bid of $850.

Other highlights included lot 26, seven of the twelve scarce issues of C.E. Leal’s The American Numismatist hammered for an impressive $270, lot 40, a single issue of a scarce periodical produced by Charles Steigerwalt The Coin Journal brought $100 and lot 13, a beautiful deluxe full leather-bound edition of John Dannreuther’s United States Proof Coins Volume 4: Gold, brought $450. In addition, lot 1, a well-preserved 1936 Minneapolis ANA Convention photograph realized $300. Nearly 50 percent of the diverse 50 lot sale realized $100 or more.

You can access the NBS benefit auction catalogs from 2017 to date on the Newman Numismatic Portal at https://nnp.wustl.edu/library/auctioncompanydetail/512295. I want to convey a sincere word of gratitude with our members who continue to share their time, talent and resources for the betterment of the NBS.

If you are not an NBS member, I invite you to visit our website at coinbooks.org and enjoy our past podcasts and read a sample issue of our print journal The Asylum.
