Click on the link below the images to see the full lot description. These are not million-dollar items and some are quite inexpensive. I've always enjoyed pieces like the German notgeld and East India coins, and used to have some in my collection. I wasn't aware of the "pirated version" of the Erie Canal completion medal. Great toning! -Editor
