In addition to our usual fare of the world’s best treasure for sale,
this auction features arguably our best offering yet of Latin American
material, particularly Central American coins from the holdings of the
Richard Stuart, and also many important bank notes.
Gold Cobs begin the auction with several Mint State gold 8, 4 and
2 escudos from the 1715 Fleet, including a certified high-grade 1710
Lima denomination set. The World Gold Coins section follows,
comprised of choice pieces and features such rarities as a Costa Rica
1873GW “5 pesos”
variety graded MS 62 from the Richard Stuart
collection. The main highlight is the very rare and beautiful Cuzco
1837BA 8 escudos “FEDERACION” type graded MS 64 (pictured on the auction
lot tags), accompanied by a feature article about the period. In U.S.
Coins, notable lots include a gorgeously toned MS 62 1812 Capped
Bust half dollar and a proof 1872 half dollar.
Our Shipwreck Ingots section features lots of non-wreck gold
nuggets and various silver ingots, including a massive 83-pound,
7.52-ounce troy silver bar from the Atocha (1622) along with
several ingots from the “Tumbaga Wreck” (ca. 1528) and the Maravillas
(1656). Shipwreck Silver Coins contains coins from 39 different wrecks,
including a large selection from the ever-popular Atocha and
countermarked shields and 1652 Transitionals from the Capitana (1654)
In Mexico Silver Cobs are many Charles-Joanna coins (both “Early”
and “Late Series”) and dated cobs, including several very rare dates
we’ve only seen once or not at all, especially in minors. In Lima
Silver Cobs we highlight some Philip II assayer Rincón pieces, two
“Star of Lima” 8 reales and a strong assortment of both shield-types and
pillars-and-waves types. Potosí Silver Cobs is filled with very
rare dates, over-assayers and design varieties (mostly in minors, which
are also offered in large date-run group-lots). Rare Bogotá issues begin
Other Silver Cobs section, which features the largest
Guatemala-cob offering we have ever had, thanks to the Richard Stuart
Following Ancient Coins is our massive World Silver Coins
section, dominated by Latin American, with significant offerings to
watch in Mexico (particularly high-grade pillars, like a 1732 Philip V 4
reales without denomination or assayer and a 1733MF Philip V 4 reales
with mintmark M.X graded MS 63), Guatemala (countermarks), El Salvador (provisionals
and countermarks), Peru (several colonial and Republic rarities),
Colombia and Panama (modern proofs and patterns). Some historically and
culturally important Bolivia gold medals feature prominently in
Medals and Tokens.
A well-rounded U.S. Paper Money section contains federal
(including gold certificates) and obsolete issues in addition to Texas,
Confederate States and Philippines notes. Our largest-to-date World
Paper Money section contains sizeable sections of rare Mexican paper
money and great notes from Chile, Costa Rica, Panama, and Puerto Rico.
Following Documents are Shipwreck Artifacts and Non-Wreck
Artifacts, where firearms, swords and a rare gold rosary from the
Atocha are important items up for bidding. Don’t miss the pirate
painting at the end!
To all our bidders we wish the best of luck and thanks for the continued
