[American Numismatic Association]. Kennedy, Daniel R. [auctioneer]. CONVENTION SALE OF RARE COINS, MEDALS, TOKENS AND PAPER CURRENCY. THE PROPERTIES OF MEMBERS. New York, Sept. 9, 1910. 8vo, original printed card covers. 47, (1) pages; 670 lots. Rear cover with taped tear; very good or better. Rare. The third ANA Convention sale, conducted under the auspices of the New York Numismatic Club. The auction was held on a Friday evening at Keen's Chop House, "following an 'Old English Dinner,'" with "refreshments being served during Sale." The front cover proclaims: "American Numismatic Society Convention of 1910." This does not appear to be a typographical error, although the title page banner reads "American Numismatic Association Convention of 1910." A printed emblem incorporating the logos of the American Numismatic Society, the American Numismatic Association, and the New York Numismatic Club is found on the front cover and on the title and it is apparent that all three groups had a hand in the affair. The ANS in fact invited the ANA to hold the convention in New York and an elaborate program was arranged by the ANS for their benefit. The business meetings were held at the Society's new building and the coin exhibits were displayed there as well. The bid sheet also features the tripartite logo. Davis 565: "The official A.N.A. sale produced under the auspices of the then 20 month old, Elder supported, New York Numismatic Club, whose not so secretive goal was to replace the older Zerbe Association as the preeminent society in the United States."
