Numismatic Bibliomania Society President Len Augsburger provided this report of Friday's fundraising auction. It was a great event!
NBS Charity Auction Raises Record Amount
The NBS charity auction, held at the ANA convention in Pittsburgh on Friday, August 11, raised a record $13,460 to support the club. Kicking off the sale was a copy of The Numismatist, volume 5, donated by Dan Hamelberg, which realized $350. Carl Würtzbach's annotated and plated copy of Henry Chapman's Bement sale (1916), donated by David Steine, realized $3,000, while a bound volume of eight Henry Chapman sales, also donated by David Steine, realized $1,700.
In all, a total of 15 successful bidders won at least one lot each. NBS expresses gratitude to David Fanning for cataloging the lots, transporting the literature to the convention, and for calling the sale. A huge thanks to all those who donated material and participated with generous bids!
