ANS to Auction Off Greek Die Duplicates
Museums periodically deaccession artifacts. The American Numismatic Society ("ANS") has decided to deaccession duplicates of Greek coins in its collection. Gemini LLC will auction off the coins during the annual New York International Numismatic Convention. The lots may be found here: http://www.geminiauction.com/category.asp?inventorygroup=cc&category=ANS+Duplicate+Collection. This should be a great opportunity for collectors of Greek coinage to bid on some spectacular coins with old provenances from some famous collections.
