Stack’s will be the official auctioneer for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money, ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd has announced.
"I’m very pleased to have received multiple strong bids for these prestigious auctions," Shepherd said. "This reflects a renewed confidence auction companies have that the ANA can host high-quality auctions with exceptional potential."
Shepherd was also pleased that Stack’s bid included a commitment to support the Association’s educational programs and seminars at the World’s Fair of Money and in New York City, where Stack’s is headquartered.
"In a very competitive bidding process, Stack’s commitment to ANA educational programs was an important consideration," Shepherd said.
"We believe strongly in the educational mission of the ANA," said Stack’s President Christine Karstedt. "This is a great opportunity for Stack’s to deliver first-rate auctions in association with the hobby’s premier membership organization. We look forward to holding extraordinary auctions in Chicago and Philadelphia."
Live auctions will be held during the 2011 Chicago World’s Fair of Money, Aug. 16-20; the 2012 Philadelphia show, Aug. 7-11; and the 2013 Chicago show, Aug. 13-17.
