The final sales of material from the numismatic collections formed by Eric P. Newman are being sold by Heritage Auctions in November 2018. Sale X will include the final offering of important paper money, while the two catalogues comprising Sale XI will include the remaining coins, mechanical counterfeit detectors and related items, as well as the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Library. All sales are being conducted for the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
The Eric P. Newman Numismatic Library was catalogued by David F. Fanning, of Kolbe & Fanning Numismatic Booksellers. This unique library, formed over more than 70 years, includes rare and important works on American coins and paper money as well as Newman’s extensive personal archives of correspondence and research files. The volume of information included in the library, taken as a whole, is extraordinary. In the area of paper money, it is likely the most important such library ever formed.
Kolbe & Fanning will be attending the auction and would be happy to discuss representing clients during the sale. Please contact David Fanning at [email protected] as soon as possible for more information.
