Introduction to the Show and Sale
This is the 6th auction by Archives International at the Wall Street Bourse, and it is a great
pleasure to welcome Dr. Bob and his team to this year’s meeting. We have new kinds of
collecting specialties represented this year, with two very fine print dealers, and also, the
participation of the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society, which has provided so much
leadership and information in the new appreciation of this local Founding Father.
Several fine presentations also await you, and it is with great pleasure to welcome you
to the 6th Bourse, and to an opportunity to view the excellent exhibit by the Museum
“Worth Its Weight – Gold from the Ground Up.”
Don’t forget to buy your ticket to the raffle of two tickets to the Broadway musical “Hamilton”
and the inspiration for the virtual exhibit about Alexander Hamilton and popular culture,
on all during the Bourse.

2016-17 auctions including our December dates. I would like to thank everyone who has participated in

to another exciting auction and hope you enjoy our current offerings.
