In an email to customers this week, Davissons Ltd. previewed coins in their upcoming March 1st 2023 Auction 42.
Auction 42, closing Wednesday, March 1st 2023, is online now! Print catalogs will be sent tomorrow, and can also be viewed on our website.
Our major annual auction covers many areas—Greek and Roman, the British Isles from Anglo-Saxon to hammered, milled, and tokens, World, and U.S. It opens with select gold from several beautiful collections that have come into our office in the past year–fine style solidi of Constantius II and Honorius, a rare Julian II solidus, and a fascinating series of three tremisses showing the progression from Roman, to Byzantine, to Visigoth.
The Zabel Collection, which anchors our sale, features several exceptionally choice and rare small gold Merovingian and Anglo-Saxon issues. These pieces were acquired by Patrick Zabel in the 1990s and early 2000s, and are some of the finest we have ever handled.
Our gold offering continues with selections from the Zabel collection of Spanish American coinage–the Central American Republic, Costa Rica, Mexico, and more. Look also for several British sovereigns and a few large early 20th century Turkish issues.
The section concludes with U.S. gold from the Zabel collection, featuring denominations from $1 to $20, and finishes with two handsome bullion issues.
Do take a look! Registering and bidding is straightforward through our website, or we are always happy to help via phone or email.
We will be back next week with several highlights from our Greek and Roman sections.
