Dave Perkins of Centennial, CO forwarded this announcement about the offering of Part III of the Ostheimer collection of So-Called Dollars.
At the 2011 Chicago ANA Convention Jeff Shevlin will be holding the third in a series of sealed bid sale offering rare So-Called Dollars from the famous Ostheimer Collection. As noted in The E-Sylum Volume 13, Number 31, August 2010, "the Ostheimers were contributors to the first edition of the Hibler &Kappen book So-Called Dollars. They corresponded heavily with Hibler in the early 1960s, prior to the first edition of the H&K book being published.
Over 70 of the plate photos in the first edition of the H&K book are from the Ostheimer Collection. Many of these specimens are extremely rare, with some H&K numbers not having been seen in over 50 years! The majority of the SCDs were stored in old Kraft 2X2 envelopes, wrapped in jeweler's tissue and unopened since the 1960s. Some were in their original holders. Eighty-nine specimens from the Ostheimer Collection are plated in the second edition of the H&K book."
The first sealed bid sale was held at the 2010 Boston ANA and set many record prices, as did the second sale held at the FUN Show in January 2011. Lots from these two sales are archived on Jeff Shevlin's website, along with color photos of each specimen and the prices realized. To view the archives, click on the following link:
The third Ostheimer sale will include 80 Specimens from the Ostheimer Collection along with selected rarities from the Jeff Shevlin Collection. Sale #3 is particularly rich in plate coins from both the first and second editions of the H&K So-Called Dollar book, with a fair number of the medals having come from the personal reference collection of Harold Hibler's. There are numerous condition rarities, including a number of extremely rare specimens that are the only examples of the die marriages graded by NGC.
Photos and lot descriptions for Shevlin's Chicago ANA sealed bid sale can now be viewed on Shevlin's website by clicking on the following link:
NBS members and E-Sylum readers are also invited to stop by and view these historical and rare medals in person at Jeff's table at the 2011 Chicago ANA Convention in August.
Lots will also be available for viewing at Jeff's table at the ANA Convention all week and up until bidding closes at 5:00PM EST Friday, August 19, 2011. Bids may be placed at the ANA Convention, buy telephone, e-mail or mail. Terms of the sale and a bid sheet are now posted on Jeff's website at so-calleddollar.com
