Archives International Sale 23, March 10

I want to let you know about the latest offering from Archives International Auctions to be held Tuesday, March 10 at its offices in Fort Lee, New Jersey. The sale will offer 1,043 lots in a live auction setting, although remote bidders can participate by mail, email, fax, phone and internet. You can access the online auction catalog at https://www.archivesinternational.com/ or you can order your own copy by calling Archives International at 201-944-4800.

The morning session of the sale will feature 778 lots of worldwide bank notes and related ephemera plus 22 lots of Military Payment Certificates. The evening session will auction 151 lots of U.S. banknotes, 64 lots of security printing ephemera and 28 lots of United States bonds, savings bonds and related documents.

Unlike many recent sales, this sale does NOT contain any ordinary corporate scripophily. Nonetheless, I suspect most of my readers will find something of interest among the printing ephemera. Sharp-eyed collectors will also spy a few lots of railroad-related scrip that few have never seen before.
