Heritage Internet Currency Auctions Now Held Weekly!

Heritage Currency Auctions of America (CAA) has announced that beginning on December 1, 2005, its Internet Currency auctions, formerly held on a bi-monthly basis, will move to a weekly frequency.

This is a very exciting move for us, based entirely on increased demand from our ever-expanding client base. In the current hot numismatic market, this change to weekly Internet auctions will allow currency collectors even more opportunities to add fresh notes to their collections.

As of December 1, 2005, CAA's Internet Currency Auctions will open and close every Tuesday evening at 10 PM CST at

"Additionally, I'd like to let everyone know about Heritage Currency Direct," enthuses Michael Moczalla, Consignment Director for CAA. "This is an opportunity for collectors to buy fixed-price notes directly out of the inventory of the world's largest currency dealer. From Colonials to modern Small Size types, it's all here, all competitively priced for immediate sale. And of course, every note sold is backed by our seven day, no hassle return privilege, because our client's satisfaction is our foremost goal."

Prospective consignors and sellers of currency and related material are invited to call Mike Moczalla at 1-800-872-6467, ext. 481, Jim Fitzgerald at 1-800-872-6467, ext. 348 or Dustin Johnston at 1-800-872-6467, ext. 302 to discuss their holdings. Or visit and click on the "Sell Now" tab. Or simply email Michael Moczalla at, Jim Fitzgerald at or Dustin Johnston at

E-mail of the Week

"I have been engaged in this hobby for more than 40 years and your service is exceptional, and the advice refreshing in its reticence and candor. Your auctions are a credit to the industry. I have been trying to use a similar approach with long distance learning and debate so that students from across the nation and the world can secure instruction and compete without significant financial obstacles. More information than you wanted to know so let me simply say thank you for a job well done."

J. B., La Verne, CA
