[American Numismatic Association]. Fisher, Chas. H. AUCTION SALE OF RARE COINS AND PAPER MONEY. Cleveland: Charles Mitzman, Ohio Licensed Auctioneer, Aug. 23, 1934. 8vo, original printed card covers. (2), 38 pages; 1005 lots. Covers detached but present; very good or so. Gengerke page 207: “A.N.A. Convention.” Although the American Numismatic Association considered the August 21 auction conducted by Charles Molnar (vide supra) to be the main auction, Fisher’s sale was a welcome addition, held at the convention hotel on the final day. Fisher notes in the catalogue that “This sale will be held in connection with the A.N.A. Convention on Thursday, August 23rd, at 1:30 P.M. at the Carter Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio.” Further, the October, 1934 Convention issue of The Numismatist reported that “Those who were not used to metropolitan auction sales had grand opportunities, for the Cleveland convention had not only one auction but an abundance of them, the official one on Monday night, attended by a large audience, and Charlie Fisher’s sale on Thursday afternoon at the conclusion of the convention. The prices were fair and quite satisfactory to the buyers.” Fisher’s sale featured several runs of large cents, including a “Very Fine” 1799 ex Dr. French, and “A Superb Lot” of half dollars, comprising lots 819–852, “consigned by one of the most fastidious collectors, who is a real crank on Condition.” Very scarce.
