Wall Street Collectors Bourse

Screen shot 2012-10-15 at 10.02.12 AM.pngBeginning 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.
