Foreword Welcome to the 1st Auction of the Oswal Antiques to be held on 11th January 2009 at Pune. First of all, I am grateful to all our patrons who have encouraged us and made our Fixed Price Lists a big hit. After launching our web-based business, this is our new venture which we are sure will be blessed by you. We are immensely pleased to tell you that our beginning is going to start from the historical city of Pune. This maiden auction of ours is a big leap for us even though we have been associated with numismatic auctions before. This new endeavor is a boost to our cherished objective of serving numismatists of India and coming close to our goal of popularizing numismatics in India. Though, all along we had been mindful of our objectives we never knew that providence will present us with such an opportunity so soon. And this has been possible because of you, our patrons, and your overwhelming support in our other numismatic enterprises. Your exuberant appreciations, dear patrons, are truly overwhelming and we appreciate your feedbacks that have prodded us to do our best to offer satisfaction. As you know, we always prize quality and whether we serve the novice or the veteran, one thing we are not going to compromise with and that is Quality. We will never sacrifice quality and honesty at the altar of profit. And we are sure this will bring some sort of discipline and transparency to this noble trade in India. Numismatics includes all sorts of players, from the new collector to the most advanced and scholastically sophisticated connoisseur. And we want to serve the whole gamut of numismatists, from the youthful kid to the veteran. We do not want to neglect one group at the cost of the other. Therefore we strive to include something for everyone of the numismatic spectrum. In this auction, since it is our first venture, we are offering 235 lots for your appreciation. We are sure these will tickle your interest and will adorn your albums. Among the major coins, we have a nice group of Gupta Gold, including Lyrist, Tiger-Slayer, Battle-Axe; a Very Rare group of Satavahana Portrait coins; excellent Vijayanagara Gold Pagodas; choice Shahrukhis of Kamran Mirza, Babur and Humayun; Extremely Rare coin of Charles/Katherine; interesting collection of British India silver, copper-nickel, Rare British India Banknotes including George V 50 Rs, Rupees 2/8 Anna notes of Bombay & Madras circles; and many more Items. Be assured, our pricing is conservative and affordable. Lastly, we are grateful to our numismatic friends of Pune who have invited us and have offered all amenities for the smooth conduct of this auction. We are particularly obliged to the members of the International Collector's Society of Rare Items, Pune and more specifically, Mr. Bastimal Solanki for providing the venue. We appreciate his support and helping hand which are key factors in the successful conduct of this auction at Pune. Last but not the least, we proudly declare that all the profits from this maiden auction shall go to a worthy charity. Happy Collecting, Girish J. Veera Our Motto: Honesty is the Best Policy 3
