I… RARE COINS, INCLUDING MEDALS, TOKENS & PAPER MONEY, CURIOUS MONIES OF THE WORLD… SECTION NO. 2… RARE COINS, INCLUDING MEDALS, TOKENS, INDIAN RELICS, OLD NEWSPAPERS, LINCOLNIANA, WASHINGTONIANA, OLD PIANO FORTE SHEET MUSIC, AUTOGRAPHS, RELICS, NUMISMATIC LITERATURE & BOOKS. Chicago, Aug. 29–30, 1933. 8vo, original printed card covers. 32 pages; 1150 lots; integral bid sheet present. Marginal corner stain not affecting text, else fine. The 1933 ANA sale. Rarely offered; its scarcity is perhaps exceeded only by the banality of its contents. The highlight of the text may well be the original chorus to Coin Bug, the “A.N.A.’s Song” (to the tune of “It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More”): “Oh! It’s Coin Bugs, Coin Bugs, Coin Bugs, Yes, Coin Bugs and still more; It’s great to be together, And talk old coins once more.” One of the nicest of the small number of copies we have seen or handled over four decades.
