Benefit Auction Supports Ancient Coin Collecting
By Lisa Bellavin

The Ancient Coin Collectors Guild will hold a benefit auction this summer to raise money for the organization's legal expenses, as it continues to battle the State Department's imposed import restrictions on ancient coins.

The ACCG is hoping to gather 150 lots through donation with 100% of the proceeds going directly to advocate on the behalf of ancient collectors.

The benefit auction will be hosted on the web site Vauctions.com, and lots will be exhibited at the Classical Numismatic Group bourse table at the American Numismatic Association convention in Baltimore, July 30th through August 3rd. Lots will also be posted on the Vauctions site and can be viewed now at www.vauctions.com/accg/.

The deadline for donations is June 15, 2008 in order to provide adequate time for cataloging and processing, and all auctions will close August 17, 2008.

To make a donation to the auction or for more on the ACCG, contact Executive Director Wayne Sales at 417-679-2142 or by email at director@accg.us. You can also lean more about cultural patrimony issues at the ACCG website, www.accg.us/.
