ACCG Benefit Auction Online

The Ancient Coin Collectors Guild (ACCG) is auctioning off donated ancient coins and other items. The auction can be found at this link:
The proceeds will help fund legal and other efforts designed to help ensure that ancient coin collecting remains a viable hobby that everyone can enjoy into the future.

Those agitating for import restrictions that will strangle the hobby are mostly archaeologists associated with universities. Educational institutions in effect subsidize their efforts. ACCG lacks that advantage. While ACCG does rely on the time and efforts of volunteers, unfortunately professional assistance is also required. This costs money. Hence, ACCG needs your help in converting ancient coins into modern dollars to help carry out its work.

By way of full disclosure, I am the immediate past president of ACCG and remain as a board member.

The auction opened today and is due to close on August 17th. This is a charity auction. Hopefully, anyone interested in supporting ACCG will make strong bids with that in mind.
