The catalog for the Numismatic Auctions LLC sale 65 is online and available for viewing or download. The sale will be held November 23-24, 2020. Here are some lots that caught my eye - see the catalog and the earlier article for highlights.
Lot 3: North West Company Token
North West Company Token, 1820. Brass. Breen-1083. PCGS
Genuine, VF details, Environmental Damage and holed. Only a
handful of these exist unholed or unimpaired. Red Book listed and
always in demand, a legendary numismatic relic of the fur trade, the
Hudson Bay Company and Native American commerce. Rare.
Great, historic piece.
Lot 20: 1841 Proof Half Cent
Extraordinarily Choice 1841 Proof Half Cent Rarity. 1841
Braided Hair Original Proof PCGS Gold Shield PR64BN CAC.
Exquisite glass-like mirrored fields with stunning iridescent steel
to teal blue toning. Prohibitively rare with a reported mintage of
only 24 pieces, with the few surviving examples nowhere near this
superb state of preservation. An investment quality rarity for the
advanced US collector or copper specialist, well deserving of its
See Bill Eckberg's cover article on this month's Numismatist. The Half Cents are a great series to collect.
Lot 193: 1795 Half Dime
Magnificent Original Mint State Silver Half Dime. 1795.
Flowing Hair. LM-8. NGC MS65 with lovely blue-green to golden-gunmetal toning. A beautiful and fully original Mint State Gem of
this rare Federal Period Silver minor coinage type, certainly CAC
worthy based upon originality alone.
Wow - a great early type coin.
Lot 926: 1901-S $5 gold
5 Dollars, 1901-S. NGC MS64, nice cartwheel luster with splashes
of pale violet.
Nice coin. I'm not above being drawn to nice shiny stuff.
Lot 1116: Hawaii Hobron Token
12 ½ Cents Thomas H. Hobron Token, 1879. Handsome brown EF
and quite pleasing. Very scarce.
Hawaii tokens are scarce but there are few known types and varieties, so it's a doable state set to put together.
Lot 1329: 1891 $2 Bill
$2, 1891. Fr. 245. PMG VF25 minor repairs noted, expertly
executed and very well-concealed.
A seldom-seen (at least by me) type note. I like how the denomination "2" in the lower right corner is tilted at a jaunty angle, along with the undulating curves of the phrase "United States Silver Dollars".
Lot 1350: 1900 $10,000 Bill
$10,000, 1900. Fr. 1225h. A seldom offered signature pairing with
the added bonus of the note being Uncancelled. Appearance of
aEF to EF, cpl singed corners from the legendary DC fire provide
both credibility and presence to the note, overall nice with transfer
endorsement verso. An always popular and impressive high denom
issue as well as an affordable trophy note. Housed in an oversized
Capital Plastics display holder.
If you can't afford a Warhol "Red Shot Marilyn", the burnt $10,000 bill is an equally storied collectible.
Lot 1455: Potty Dollar and Potty Dime
1877 “Potty Dollar” engraved in slightly finer style than the
preceding example on a chamber pot resembling a coffee cup
with ribbon above. Host coin full rim Good-VG and toned, cpl old
marks. Always sought after, accompanied by a seldom seen “Potty
Dime”, 1891, toned Fine/VF. 2 coins. ($250-300)
I've seen potty dollars, but wasn't familiar with the potty dime. Neat pair.
Lot 1487: Thomas Elder 1927 Gold Token
Lincoln Gold Token, 1927. AV, 15mm. As DeLorey-48. Unc,
with auction ticket from the Litman, Sullivan & Dreyfuss Collection
Sale at Presidential. ($200-300)
Lot 1503: Pedley-Ryan Dollar
Pedley-Ryan Dollar, 1933. Type VII. HK-828. PCGS Gold Shield
MS64. A handsome example of this R7 rarity at the very top of the
condition spectrum available. ($3500-4000)
Nice example of a great rarity.
