Here's a selection of interesting or unusual items I came across in the marketplace this week. Tell us what you think of some of these.
c1894 Iran Gold 10 Toman
I saw this Iranian gold coin on Sixbid - it is in the recent Sincoa AG Auction 49 held last month. Gotta love the 'stache. I believe this is
lot 52, a gold 10 Toman of Shah Naser al-Din (1848-1896). -Editor

Two Dollar Bill With Andy Warhol Signature
Andy WARHOL (1928-1987) 2 DOLLAR banknote signed in the felt on the face with postage stamp and postmark, 1976 WARHOL workshop stamp on the back
Dimensions: 6.5 x 15.5 cm
These are plenty of postmarked bicentennial two dollar bills around, but how many with the signature of Andy Warhol? Cool item. But where was it
postmarked - can anyone make out the name of the town? -Editor

An absolutely historic and breathtaking piece of Soccer history. Comes directly out of the German traveling Camp to Russia from the 2017 FIFA
