Kolbe & Fanning Sale 126
Numismatic Literature Sale Closes October 4
Kolbe & Fanning Numismatic Booksellers have published their 126th sale of important numismatic literature from around the world. The sale features material from several different consignors, including a significant number of lots from the library of the late F. Gordon Frost. The offering of classic 19th- and early 20th-century American numismatic auction catalogues derives largely from Gordon’s collection and is particularly important. Special sections are also devoted to works on British tokens and Russian numismatics, in which quite a few interesting works may be found. In all, the sale features 1092 lots of numismatic publications on ancient, medieval, modern foreign and U.S. numismatics.
The sale catalogue has been uploaded to the Kolbe & Fanning website, where readers may download it in PDF format at www.numislit.com. Printed catalogues will be sent to active bidders on our mailing list soon. The catalogue features a topical index and is arranged by broad category (Ancient / Medieval and Modern / United States); in addition, two special sections, on Russian Numismatics and on British Tokens, are also included.
The mail-bid sale closes on Thursday, October 4, 2012. Phone bids will be accepted until 6 p.m. on that day; voicemail, fax and email bids will be accepted until midnight (all times are U.S. Eastern Time). We look forward to your participation.
Kolbe & Fanning are always accepting consignments of important numismatic books for future mail-bid sales: please contact us for details. In addition, we are seeking consignments of outstanding works for our January 12, 2013 public auction at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, held in conjunction with the New York International Numismatic Convention.
