AUCTIONEER: Heritage Wins Bid for ANA Auctions

[COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO] Heritage Auction Galleries will be the official auctioneer for the two 2010 American Numismatic Association shows, the Boston World’s Fair of Money® and the Fort Worth National Money Show™, ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd has announced.

The ANA told the press, “The ANA received several competitive bids for its 2010 National Money Show auctions in Dallas/Fort Worth and the 2010 World’s Fair of Money auctions in Boston. The bids were complex and required a review of several diverse components. After review, it was determined that the most favorable bid that best served the interests of the ANA’s members was tendered by Heritage Auctions, Inc. As the bids contain proprietary and confidential proposals, it is the policy of the ANA not to discuss the details of the bids. The bids were sealed and received by BiggsKofford, the ANA’s auditors, and were then tendered to the ANA Executive Director and General Counsel, each of whom conducted an independent review and thereafter conferred to review their respective analysis of the bids. After extensive review, they made a unanimous recommendation to the Board of Governors.”
