Stack’s and Superior Galleries selected for ANA 2002 auctions
Stack’s of New York City and Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, California, will serve as official auctioneers for the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) 2002 National Money Showâ„¢ and World’s Fair of MoneyÂ®, respectively.
Stack’s, which first entered the numismatic auction field in 1935, was awarded the auction sale for the 2002 National Money Show to be held in Jacksonville, Florida.
Superior, which held the ANA’s 2000 National Money Show auction and will conduct the auction at the Association’s spring convention in Salt Lake City next March, was awarded the auction sale for the 2002 World’s Fair of Money to be held in New York City.
“Meeting during the ANA World’s Fair of Money 2000 in Philadelphia in August, the Association’s Board of Governors selected both auction houses through an open bidding process,” says ANA Executive Director Edward C. Rochette. “In choosing these two auction houses, the Board considered not only the amount of money to be paid the Association, but also Stack’s and Superior’s experience and reputations within the numismatic community, and their respective abilities to successfully conduct these auctions.”
In his firm’s proposal, Harvey Stack says Stack’s will offer auction lots in four categories: United States and foreign (post-1500) coins; ancient and medieval (pre-1500) coins; United States and foreign paper money; and tokens, medals and exonumia.
In addition to conducting the World’s Fair of Money auction, Superior President Lisa Parker says her firm proposes a “public appraisal day” during the convention, with all profits for items purchased during the event to be donated to the ANA. Superior also will seek approval to broadcast its auction over the Internet and/or live television.
Both auction houses can request the ANA executive director to send out mailings to the Association’s membership inviting them to consign coins and other material to the Jacksonville and New York auctions in 2002. All mailings will be completed at the expense of the auctioneer.
Stack’s and Superior also must guarantee the authenticity of all the lots offered.
