Between Saturday August 23 through Monday September 1st CoinWeek is going to be implementing a NEW look and design. During this period certain sections of the site may experience delays, or may not be accessible for short periods of time. Thank you in advance for your patience.

Kolbe & Fanning Numismatic Booksellers are announcing their first “Buy or Bid Sale,” which is in progress and will close on Wednesday, May 9. The sale is designed to sell hundreds of lots cheaply, giving collectors an opportunity to add to their libraries at inexpensive prices.

The sale is online only: there will be no printed catalogue. The PDF catalogue is available now for downloading from the Kolbe & Fanning website at

As the name of the sale suggests, customers may bid on items they wish to acquire or buy them outright at the published price. The Terms of Sale will give full instructions on how to participate.

The sale consists of over 1000 items that have remained unsold in previous mail-bid sales. “Buy” prices have been kept low to promote sales. To further encourage participation, the firm is offering free postage to addresses in the U.S. for bidders spending at least $500; there will also be no packing and processing fee for this sale. Again, please read the Terms of Sale before participating.

The sale includes works on ancient, medieval and modern coins, as well as general works, periodicals and sale catalogues. The catalogue is organized into broad categories for the convenience of the reader.

If you have any questions about the sale, please write to David Fanning at He can also be reached at (614) 414-0855.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Download the sale today:
