2015 WALL STREET BOURSE AND AUCTION

Here's the press release for the upcoming 2015 Wall Street Bourse show in New York. -Editor

At the 5th Wall Street Bourse and Auction, several unusual new events and activities are planned. One of these will be the first offering of one of the most important collections of scripophily, the collecting of antique stock and bond certificates, that of John E. Herzog.

Mr. Herzog has been a collector since 1959, and when he began, there were very few collectors and very few certificates offered for sale. As the years went by, interest grew and the market became very interesting. During much of this time, Mr. Herzog was also the Chairman of R. M. Smythe & Co., Inc., a numismatic auction firm, and so had an opportunity to see this rapidly growing market at close range.

Herzog came to appreciate 18th century financial documents, especially those of the very young America, and has devoted much attention to the Federal Period in his collecting interests. Small specialties were also created, and his collection covers many subjects, such as shipping, medical subjects, women on certificates, and others.

Offerings from the collection will be on the Bourse floor at the Roland & Co. dealer table, and there will also be a number of lots in the Archives International auction on Saturday October 24, also being held at the Museum of American Finance. Two Edison electric light bulbs will be there, and other objects of financial history interest. This will be the beginning of a series of offerings from the important Herzog Collection and promises to be quite interesting.

The 5th Annual Wall Street Collectors Bourse will be held October 22-24 in the exhibition gallery of the Museum of American Finance at 48 Wall Street (www.moaf.org). An event for lovers of financial history, it brings dealers, collectors and artists together to enjoy and exchange coins, collectible stock and bond certificates, antique paper money, autographs, and related memorabilia.

Archives International Auctions will hold the public and Internet sale on the Bourse floor on Saturday morning, October 24 at 10:30am.

Museum admission is FREE during the Bourse, so visitors can enjoy the show and museum's fascinating exhibits in one visit, as well as interesting talks and workshop, and many interesting offerings. Don't miss this unusual collectors event.
