[American Numismatic Association]. Molnar, Charles J. AMERICAN NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION. PROGRAM AND CATALOG OF COINS TO BE SOLD AT AUCTION. Cleveland, Aug. 20, 1934. 12mo, original printed card covers. 23, (1) pages; 590 lots. Perhaps half of the lots priced in pencil. Folded; very good. A rarely offered catalogue; we’ve offered two for sale in the last 25 years. Although it was clearly the official convention sale, Charles Fisher conducted an auction three days later (vide infra). While nowadays the days leading up to an A.N.A. convention are routinely packed with important coin auctions, this was a notable innovation at the time. Adams summarizes the Molnar sale in two words: “Meager content.” This may account in part for its true scarcity today.
