Beginning on Thursday of this week, the Museum of American Finance
at 48 Wall Street in New York City will be the setting for the Wall Street Collectors Bourse II
. The Bourse had its successful debut last year. What is a "bourse"? If you are unfamiliar with the term, you are likely not a collector of coins or stamps; it is a convention where numismatic or philatelic items are offered for sale. Book collectors might see it as akin to a book fair. At the Bourse, financial collectibles--coins, bank notes, stock and bond certificates, etc.--are the primary commodities. Thirty dealers will attend, and Archives International Auctions will host an auction on Saturday.
