Gradings and terminology used in this catalogue Proof: Proof coins are the most beautiful coins imaginable. They are struck using specially hardened dies, and highly polished blanks. The result is a coin of great clarity and depth of detail. Most modern proofs (1966 onwards) contrast a brilliant mirror background against delicately frosted detail.

Prooflike: Often a non-official mint strike, or medallic in nature.

Brilliant Uncirculated (B/Unc) or choice Unc: Uncirculated, but with higher than normal sheen.

have clear signs of soiling and heavy creasing, possibly also some tearing.

Very Good (VG): Most details of a coin’s design will be all but gone, but the basic design and date are still visible. Notes of this grade are near the end of their useful life, and are of little value unless they are very scarce or rare.

choice: An exceptional example of the given grade. good (g): Use of the prefix good (e.g. gVF) indicates that the item is slightly better than the grade stated.

Uncirculated (Unc): An uncirculated or unused item. Full detail, no wear, brilliance and lustre are hallmarks of an uncirculated coin, whereas no bends, folds or staining are qualities of an uncirculated banknote.

about (a): Use of this prefix (e.g. aEF) indicates that the item is almost at the grading designated. References commonly used: •

Krause/Mishler – Standard Catalogue of World Coins, various editions

Pick – Standard Catalogue of World Paper Money, various editions

Renniks Unofficial Coins of Colonial Australia and New Zealand by Gilbert C Heyde

on the design of a coin. Other traces of wear may also be evident. Banknotes of this grade will show distinct signs of handling though the paper will still be reasonably crisp.

Spink – Coins of England & the United Kingdom,

Greg McDonald – Pocket Guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes

Fine (F): The effects of handling will be quite evident from

Carlisle – Australian Historical Medals 1788–1988

Extremely Fine (EF): Coins show only traces of wear to the high points of the design and only light surface marks from circulating. Otherwise the design is clear and sharp and the coin will have much lustre. Notes are clean and crisp with only the slightest signs of creases and folds. Very Fine (VF): Lustre has gone and there will be flatness

Terms and Conditions It is important that bidders make themselves aware of the following. Do not bid if you are not prepared to comply fully with the terms and conditions for this auction.

Purchaser

Payment Terms

1.

11. Title of purchased lots shall not pass until the purchase price and buyer’s expenses are paid in full with cleared funds in Australian Dollars. We accept Cash, EFTPOS, Electronic Funds Transfer, Bank or Personal Cheque and Credit Card (subject to surcharge). Overseas buyers not using credit card facilities will be required to add AUD $20 to payments to cover bank charges; this will appear on the buyer’s invoice.

The purchaser is to be the highest bidder. Any dispute arising as to the highest bidder will be determined by the Auctioneer who may re-offer any disputed lot.

Auctioneer 2.

The Auctioneer shall regulate all bidding. Usual procedure is for bids to be advanced by not less than 5% on the previous bid. The Auctioneer’s starting price shall be one bid over the second highest postal bid received. Postal bidders should bid early, as first bids at the same level receive priority.

3.

If so requested, buyers shall give their name and address and/or pay the whole or part of the purchase price at the sale. Failure to comply with these rules in respect of any lot entitles the Auctioneer to re-sell any lot, any resulting deficiency being made good by the defaulter.

4.

The Auctioneer reserves the right to (a) refuse any bid, (b) bid on behalf of clients. While every care and attention is taken in executing bids and written instructions, the Auctioneer regrets that he cannot accept responsibility for any errors.

5.

The Auctioneer shall not be liable for any default of the Purchaser or Vendor.

Disputes 6.

In the event of any dispute, the Auctioneer shall have sole discretion to resolve the dispute and may re-offer the disputed lot.

Purchaser Responsibilities 12. The buyer of each lot is to be responsible for it from the time it is “knocked down”. Payment is to be made in full with cleared funds before delivery or collection. The lot(s) are to be paid for by Australian buyers within two days of receiving the invoice, and by overseas buyers within 7 days of receiving the invoice. A service charge of 2% per month will be added to all overdue accounts. Failure to pay in full within the specified time also entitles the Auctioneer to re-sell the lots, with any resulting deficiency being made good by the defaulter.

Delivery/Collection of Lots 13. Lots can be picked up from our Auction Rooms, Lower Ground Floor, Block Arcade from noon Friday, 12 July 2013. No lots will be delivered to buyers without payment in full.

The purchaser is at liberty to return the lot by giving written notice with seven days (or in the case of overseas buyers, within 14 days) of the sale, if he proves that the lot is not genuine or not correctly described. The onus on proving a lot to be not genuine lies with the purchaser. Proof of the inability of a recognised expert to express a definite opinion will not discharge this onus.

Bids below 60% of estimate will not be accepted.

A 19.25% buyer’s premium (including GST) with a minimum charge of $8 per lot will be added to the hammer price of each lot and is payable by ALL buyers.

Agents Bidding

15. Watches, instruments and devices with working mechanisms are verified to be accurately described. Whilst every care is taken to provide secure packaging for all items in transit, no responsibility may be assigned to the Auctioneer for lots which are described as being ‘in working order’ but are found to be not working at time of receipt. Such lots are sold “as is” and are not subject to return.

10. Agents bidding on behalf of disclosed and undisclosed clients do so on their own responsibility both for payment and safe delivery of the lots.

Viewing 16. No lot is to be rejected if subsequent to the sale it has been removed from its sealed holder and/or has been treated by any process, unless the Auctioneer’s permission to subject the lot to such treatment has first been obtained in writing.

Downies Australian Coin Auctions will apply the following strict guidelines for intending auction viewers: •

Viewers will be admitted to the viewing room subject to positive proof of identity – this requires the furnishing of a Government issue photo ID (such as a driver licence, passport).

17. No lot is to be rejected if the purchaser or his agent has inspected the lot prior to the sale, irrespective of whether or not any item or items are incorrectly described. 18. Failure on the part of the bidder or purchaser to comply with the conditions stated previously, entitles the Auctioneer to cause the bidder or purchaser to forfeit any deposit held.

Helpful Advice for Absentee Bidders •

As a bidder at our Public Auction, you will be able to decide the level at which you would like to purchase an item. To assist bidders in the preparation of their bids, the Auctioneer has set an “estimated market price” on each lot. This is a conservative guide to the market value of the items described and you may bid above or below this estimate.

Please note however, that bids below 60% of this estimate will not be processed.

the estimate and this will be treated as your maximum bid (excluding the buyer’s commission). Alternatively, you can place a conservative bid and, if the bidding far exceeds it, you can elect to increase that bid by a fixed percentage. The higher bid will only be executed if necessary, and strictly according to your instructions. Please fill in the appropriate space on the bid sheet if this is required.

Our descriptions are complete and our grading is conservative. Our aim is to give you the best possible guide to the actual condition of the item you are seeking. We value our postal bidders and believe that our grading and pricing policies work to the mutual long term benefit of both the customer and our Company.

If you are interested in a number of lots, but only wish to spend a limited amount of money, please mark your bids and then clearly indicate in the space provided, the maximum amount you wish to spend.

In preparing your bids, it is important to note that a 19.25% buyer’s commission is added to the knock down price of each lot (includes GST).

Your bid will be executed in the strictest confidence by an official representative of the Company. It will be regarded as the maximum bid that you are prepared to pay and we will always try to purchase on your behalf at a price lower than your maximum bid given.

If you are interested in a particular item, and there are two or more identical lots; you can clearly indicate on your bid sheet that you wish to bid for “one only” (or more) of the nominated lots on offer. This must be made clear on the bid sheet.

On items that you anticipate the price may far exceed the estimate, we can offer you some flexibility in the execution of your bid. Obviously, you may submit a bid well above

Remember, the benefit is yours by buying at Public Auction: you can decide exactly what you want to pay for any item, and bid to that level.

Remember that successful absentee bids at the same level will be awarded to the earliest bid at that level – SO BID EARLY!

1934/35 Melbourne Centenary, case for “The Star – Who Will it Be?” contest which was originally presented with a Melbourne Centenary Florin enclosed within (the coin presented with this box now missing), immaculate condition and a rarely-seen piece of Melbourniana The Star was a Melbourne post-Depression era newspaper which ran briefly from October 1933 until its demise in April 1936. The “Who Will It Be” Contest was an immensely popular reader-participation event culminating in a gala presentation night attended by 10000 people. Major prizes included a cruise and a motor cycle while consolation prizes of various types and values included a silver fox fur, diamond brooch, chocolates and theatre tickets. Although no records are known concerning the boxed Centenary Florins in the event, evidently they were amongst of the schedule of prizes though the very small number seen today suggests they were only few in number Est. $500

Rebel forces of the Irish Catholics set up council at Kilkenny and when civil war broke out in England, declared their support for the King in opposition to the Protestants.

In addition, a smaller vessel was ordered to provide a feeder service between Sydney and Port Philip. By the time the first steamer was delivered in 1854 the whole scheme had been abandoned due to high coal prices in the Pacific region, and the outbreak of the Crimean War finally caused the winding up of the company Est. $250
