The Joel R. Anderson Multi-Million Dollar Collection of Paper Money, Part I

Paper money collector Joel R. Anderson is a major figure in the American publishing industry.

As director and chairman of the Anderson Companies, he oversaw a portfolio of diverse businesses in publishing and retail. The Anderson Companies operate Books-A-Million, the country’s second-largest book retailer, Whitman Publishing, and Anderson Press.

On March 22, 2018 at the Whitman Baltimore Coin & collectibles Expo, Stack’s Bowers offered the first part of a multi-part auction of Joel Anderson’s extraordinary multi-million dollar paper money collection.

The 64 lots that make up this first section include many six-figure banknotes, many bordering on $1,000,000 in value. It includes the rarest of the rare and many of the finest known for their type. The session brought an astounding $7.912 million dollars, with seven currency notes surpassing the half-million-dollar mark.

Many of these paper money notes have not been offered for public sale in more than a generation.

In this CoinWeek video, we show the session in its entirety, adding hundreds of banknote images and graphical overlays to give the advanced paper money collector a perspective of this sale and the state of the rare paper money market that you will not get anywhere else.
