TERMS AND CONDITIONS By participating in this auction, you (hereafter referred to as the “Bidder”) are entering into a binding contract with Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC (“Auctioneer”) and agree to the following Terms and Conditions: 1)

Each lot will be sold to the highest Bidder unless the reserve or starting price is not met. Bids may be submitted in person or by mail, telephone, fax, email, or live on the Internet until each lot is closed during the live session. All nonlive bids must be received before the auction session begins. The Auctioneer or any of its employees individually cannot be responsible for errors in bidding or the loss or delay of any bids that do not reach us by the closing date and time, or for any technical glitches that prevent internet bids from being executed. All bidders must be registered before their bids will be entered. New bidders must register 48 hours prior to the auction so that references can be verified, otherwise their bids may not be accepted. All bids are in U.S. dollars. 2) Winning bids will be reduced automatically by the iCollector platform to the next increment above the second-highest bid. In the case of tie bids, the earliest bidder will win the lot. Bidders are advised to provide allowable percentage increases to avoid losing lots due to a tie. 3) A winning bid is contract between the winning Bidder (hereafter referred to as the “Buyer”) and the Consignor. The Buyer, even if acting as an agent for someone else, agrees to purchase the lot(s) he has won and to pay the Buyer’s Premium and any shipping costs, sales tax, bank-wire fees, customs duties, or other surcharges involved in delivering the lot(s) to the Buyer. Certain lots (particularly artifacts) may require special packaging and handling, for which a surcharge will be levied (also note shipping calculations will delay invoicing). In some special cases delivery may be arranged directly between the Consignor and the Buyer, at the buyer’s cost. At no time shall the Buyer have any legal recourse against the Consignor for any reason. Buyers will be notified as soon as possible after the sale with an invoice reflecting the total amount due and shall remit payment within two weeks of notification or within one month of the date of the first session of the auction, whichever is sooner. Buyers who do not receive notification for whatever reason are NOT released from their obligation to pay on time. If payment has not been received within these terms, the Auctioneer reserves the right to sell the lot(s) to any under-bidders for their lower bid amounts. If the winning bidder provides a credit card before the sale, Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC reserves the right to charge the credit card for the total of the auction purchases if payment has not been received within fourteen (14) calendar days. Title to each lot does not pass until the item has been paid in full. Any late payments (one month past invoice date) will be assessed an accrued interest charge of 5% per month. 4) Lot pickup will be available after the auction (not during). Any lots not picked up in person (unless other arrangements are made) will be sent to Buyer via U.S. Mail when the invoice has been paid in full. All domestic shipments will carry full insurance, but foreign shipments are made at the Buyer’s risk (insurance available in some cases). Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC is responsible for loss or damage to lots only up until they are received at the address to which they are sent; any transshipment from there is the buyer’s responsibility alone. Any special instructions for shipping, delivery or payment must be in writing (letter, fax, email or text) and will be effective only upon confirmation by us (verbal requests may not be honored). Generally, lots will be shipped in the order in which they are paid. 5) A Buyer’s Premium of 19% will be added to the winning bid for the total purchase price before any applicable taxes, fees or surcharges. Any payments by credit/debit card or PayPal will incur a 3% surcharge on the total. 6) Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, money order, wire transfer, direct deposit, PayPal, Visa/MC, American Express and Discover. All payments by check or money order should be made payable to Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC. Payments per auction and per buyer are limited to the following amounts: PayPal (to auction@sedwickcoins.com), $2,500; credit card, $10,000; checks, $100,000 (must be paid via wire beyond that). All payments shall be in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank. Please contact us for instructions for wire-transfer payments, for which bank charges may be necessarily added to the amount to be paid, generally depending on the country from which the wire originates. 7) New bidders who do not have established credit with us must supply commercial references in the numismatic field and/or a 25% deposit. Credit cards are acceptable in lieu of a deposit. If your bids are unsuccessful, your deposit will be refunded, but if you are a winning bidder, your deposit will be applied to your purchase unless other arrangements are made. Any bidders with an overdue balance with Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC must complete payment of their previous balance before their bids will be accepted. 8) Bidders have several options for bidding method: Bids prior to the auction may be submitted by mail, fax, email, or in person, or by bidding online directly on iCollector or via SixBid or NumisBids. During the live auction, bids may be executed only in person or by phone, by prior appointment. Phone bidding is offered only as a courtesy and we do not

guarantee any line condition or accessibility during or before the auction. You must remain available to receive our call when the lots you wish to bid on come up. Most lots are unreserved, but some lots do have a reserve or minimum bid assigned by the consignor. Any reserve will generally be at or below the stated low estimate and starting price. All estimates are given in U.S. dollars. As an active dealer, Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC is able to estimate a reasonably low wholesale level for each lot and reserves the right to reject any bids below this level (generally at least 70% of low estimate). Furthermore we reserve the right to reject any bids that we have reason to believe are not submitted in good faith. Starting bids are provided on iCollector when the auction is published, and bids below those starting bids cannot be entered. Prices realized do not necessarily reflect accurate market values so much as what the high bidder is willing to pay based on his own needs. All items are guaranteed genuine and as described. Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC does NOT guarantee that any lots can be successfully encapsulated. Auctions are NOT approval sales, and therefore returns will NOT be accepted UNLESS there was an error in the listing. Note that grading and estimation of corrosion are subjective and differences of opinion cannot be considered errors. Lots encapsulated by PCGS, NGC or any other third-party company may not be returned for any reason. Disputes as to authenticity shall be resolved by submission to PCGS or NGC, and if their determination is inconclusive, then the opinion of Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC shall stand. Any disputes, including proposed returns, must be brought to our attention no later than 2 days after receipt of the lot(s) by the Buyer and BEFORE return shipment to us, with any applicable refunds to be made immediately upon receipt of the returned item(s) by us. All returns must be received by us in unaltered condition and in their original, unopened, sealed flips no later than one month after the date of the first auction session (note that late remittance, therefore, can negate return privileges). Any refunds for returns paid for by credit card and PayPal will be subject to a 3% return fee. In the event of loss or damage, Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC’s liability shall be limited to the hammer price plus buyer’s fee only. NGC or PCGS census data (“finest known,” etc.) are given based on the date of cataloging and are not presumed to be accurate forever. Note that any group-lots returned due to error in listing must be returned in entirety. Where not already included in the lot description, we will provide our own certificate of authenticity upon request by the buyer for a fee. In case of loss or theft the guaranty is limited to either the reserve price (if unsold) or the hammer price plus buyer’s fee (if sold). Any extra expenses incurred by the winning bidder or consignor in order to bid, inspect, consign or pick up the lots are not covered and are the sole responsibility of the winning bidder/consignor. Any potential or speculative value is not guaranteed. Lots may be inspected before the auction at our private office in Winter Park by appointment only during our office hours of Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. High-quality photos of all items are viewable on our website and on iCollector 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All photographs in the catalog and online are of the actual lots being sold but may not be actual size or to scale. Color and brightness of online photos may vary according to your monitor and video-card specifications. If buyer does not supply a Florida resale certificate, then Florida sales tax will apply as follows: If picked up in person, 6.5% will be added to the total (hammer plus buyer’s fee) for all items that are NOT coins or bullion, and to all non-U.S. coins whose total is less than $500. Same applies to lots shipped to Florida addresses, but the rate (6% to 7.5%) will be according to county of delivery. There is no Florida sales tax on U.S coins or on any lots shipped out of state. All bidders and consignors acknowledge and agree that the Auctioneer (Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC) does NOT guarantee that auctions will be unimpaired, uninterrupted or error-free and accordingly shall not be liable for such eventualities. Any errors in the printed catalog will be rectified on the website and iCollector as they come to our attention, and those corrected listings shall be deemed the binding descriptions at the time of the auction. The Auctioneer in its sole and absolute discretion may accept or decline any bid, remove bids and reopen bidding, withdraw lots, or change lot sequence or bidding increments at any time, even after the winning bid and winning bidder have been announced. Any bidding disputes shall be adjudicated by the Auctioneer, whose decision shall be deemed binding and final. This auction is conducted in accordance with the auction laws of the State of Florida. The licensed auctioneer is Daniel Frank Sedwick, AU#3635, AB#2592. The Auctioneer and Bidder agree that the venue for all claims and disputes shall be the applicable court having jurisdiction in Orange County in the State of Florida, and that the prevailing party shall be entitled to all attorneys’ fees and costs. THE BIDDER AGREES TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. All Bidders must meet Auctioneer’s qualifications to bid. Any Bidder who is not a client in good standing of the Auctioneer may be disqualified at Auctioneer’s sole option and will not be awarded lots. Such determination may be made by Auctioneer in its sole and unlimited discretion, at any time prior to, during, or even after the close of the Auction. Auctioneer reserves the right to exclude any person or company from the Auction. Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC reserves the right to reject any bids suspected not to be submitted in good faith. If an entity places a bid, then the person executing the bid on behalf of the entity agrees to personally guarantee payment for any successful bid.

Treasure, World, U.S. Coin and Paper Money Auction 25 Live on the Internet, Thursday-Friday, May 2-3, 2019

We welcome you to another high-quality auction of shipwreck coins and artifacts, Spanish colonial cobs, world coins, U.S. coins, paper money and more! We’re calling this the “ingot auction” since we have a large selection of shipwreck gold and silver bars, perhaps the most we’ve ever offered in one auction. Here are some highlights you won’t want to miss: Under Gold Cobs, at the beginning of the auction, you’ll find a nice selection of 1715-Fleet coins, most in very high grade, including selections from the Stuart Auerbach collection. Don’t miss the very rare Atocha and Santa Margarita gold cobs. Within the World Gold Coins section, there is an important La Rioja (Argentina) 1832/1 8 escudos NGC MS 62 (lot 80). Go to lot 107 for the finest known Popayán (Colombia) 1879 10 pesos PCGS AU 58. And don’t miss the Tegucigalpa (Honduras) 1883 10 pesos NGC AU 50, considered among the rarest gold issues of Latin America, in addition to several examples of rare colonial Guatemalan gold coins. As mentioned above, our Shipwreck Ingots section offers a profusion of gold and silver bars, particularly from the “Tumbaga wreck” (lots 194 and 202-206). We also have gold bars and cut pieces from the Atocha, Santa Margarita, and 1715 Fleet as well as silver bars from the Atocha and other wrecks, not to mention a huge natural gold specimen from California (lot 201). Within our Shipwreck Coins section, where you will find many of the usual shipwrecks represented, we have an unusually large selection of Concepción coins and an assortment of interesting clumps. A standout in this section is a coin from the pirate ship Whydah, a Potosí (Bolivia) cob 8 reales of 1709 (lot 442). Finally, for U.S. shipwreck collectors, please note lots 510-515 where you will find several U.S. gold $20 coronet Liberty “double eagles,” 1857-S, from the S.S. Central America. Looking for coin jewelry? Our popular dedicated Coin Jewelry section has expanded, with a large and pleasing selection of gold and silver coins, particularly from shipwrecks, including ancient coins (which look especially nice mounted in jewelry). We also have a selection of attractive ancient coins in the immediately-following Ancients section. Mexico Silver Cobs features a very important Charles-Joanna “Early Series” assayer-F 4 reales NGC AU 53 (lot 655). Within the Lima Silver Cobs, we highlight some Philip II assayer-Rincón pieces (lots 715-719) and two Royals/galanos (lots 736 and 738). There are also nine Royals/galanos within the Potosí Silver Cobs section, a healthy selection for those who collect them. Our large World Silver Coins section has become a showcase for Latin American coins, and this auction is no exception. Note lot 969, a Bogotá (Colombia) pillar 1 real, Charles III, 1760JV, which is one of only six different Colombian pillar issues confirmed to exist. We are offering a large selection of coins from Honduras, spanning 1824 to 1910 (lots 1073-1116); particularly important are the Tegucigalpa provisional issues. The Mexico section features a terrific offering of pillar 2 reales from the Potomac Collection. Outside of Latin American be sure to check out the fabulous 1945 proof set from Lahore, British India (lots 1132-1136). Last but not least, don’t miss the Skyler Liechty Collection of French Caribbean Coppers and Countermarks (lots 1303-1317). Within Medals and Decorations is a fine selection of Admiral Vernon medals (lots 1330-1342), most of which are pedigreed to the John Adams collection and some of which are outstanding examples. Colonial collectors will also admire the 1687 British medal (lot 1329) struck to commemorate the salvage of the Concepción by Sir William Phips. Also be sure to note the 1812 silver medal from Argentina (lot 1318) commemorating the Battle of Tucumán, the first example we have seen. Under Peru (lot 1355), you’ll see a very impressive diamondand-gold medal commemorating the national codifiers of the laws of the country, no doubt very expensive to produce in its time and a true jewel of Peruvian political history. Our last four regular sessions are no less exciting. First, under U.S. Coins and Paper Money we have an assortment of choice Morgan dollars as well as two unique Puerto Rico pesos engraved by Spanish-American War soldiers (lots 1388 and 1389). Also there is a 1771 Pennsylvania colonial 20-shillings note signed by an original signer of the Declaration of Independence (lot 1397). In World Paper Money we have an important selection of rare notes from Colombia and Costa Rica; also be sure to notice the 1884 Uruguayan pattern proofs (lot 1477). Under Documents, you’ll see a large grouping of Theodore de Bry engravings, all hand-colored, and most depicting some real or fanciful scenes from early contact between the Spanish and natives (lots 1479-1489), as well as a sizable selection of colonial-era maps. Finally, the Artifacts section is where we keep some real gems. Lot 1525, four Atocha gold money chain links, is one such prize, as is the next lot, a rare silver candlestick holder. The main event is lot 1535, a 1715-Fleet gold chain that is a whopping 43 inches long. Following that is a much shorter “olive blossom” chain, which could easily be made into wearable jewelry. As usual we also have a large selection of non-wreck items like cannonballs, guns, swords, and other armor and oddities. An Express session at the end offers budget-level items from all the regular sections. To all our bidders we wish the best of luck and extend our thanks for your continued support. Enjoy!

A NOTE ABOUT THE ORDER As the world’s leading purveyors of New World cobs and shipwreck coins, we have always separated and highlighted our cob and shipwreck offerings from the rest of what we sell. We have preserved that arrangement in our auctions as well, with cobs presented in order of establishment of each mint (the rare and unusual mints at the end) and the shipwreck coins, ingots and artifacts presented in chronological order by wreck.

REFERENCES CITED Where possible, in the description for each lot we supply one or more numbers in reference to acknowledged publications in the field. References used in this catalog include the following: CT = Calicó’s Numismática española (2008), formerly by Calicó and Trigo (nine previous editions). Fonrobert = Fonrobert’s Sammlung uberseeischer Munzen: III. Abtheilung Sud-Amerika (1878). Janson = Janson’s La Moneda Circulante en el Territorio Argentino 1574-2015 (2016).

SHIPWRECK HISTORIES Please see our website www.sedwickcoins.com/wreckhistory.pdf for brief historical backgrounds on the various shipwrecks in this auction.

COIN GRADING and DESCRIPTIVE TERMS From best to worst, UNC is Uncirculated, AU is Almost Uncirculated, XF is Extra Fine, VF is Very Fine, F is Fine, VG is Very Good, and G is Good, with Fair and Poor below that. (“About” or “A” means the coin is just shy of the indicated grade.  Mint State refers to lustrous, choice UNC coins.) We do not always assign numismatic grades to sea-salvage and land-burial coins, which were usually Uncirculated (or close to it) before the effects of corrosion and/ or cleaning. Corrosion is usually assessed, from least to most, as follows: none, minimal, light, moderate, and heavy. Also note that we sometimes use the abbreviations E for escudos and R for reales in the listings for Spanish and Spanish colonial items.

A NOTE ABOUT PHOTOS Coin photos in this catalog are generally shown at actual size, with the exception of large lots, which are often reduced, as are most medals, paper money, artifacts, documents, artwork and media. Photos of coins in the most recent NGC capsules have four white intrusions into the rims of the coins due to a special design meant to enable viewing of the edges of those coins.

We encourage bidders to examine lots in advance in person, either at the coin shows we attend or at our premises in Winter Park, Florida (by appointment only), or at the auction site (when applicable).

Bold strike for the issue, with fully detailed sunface and light toning over luster throughout, and virtually none of the natural flaws normally present, just an area of erasure around the last digit of the date as expected (no clean 1832 dates are known). Second sunface type after the Potosí issues of 1813-15. The Potosí mint was lost to the royalists in 1815 and hostilities with Spain were ended in 1824, in which year a mint was created in La Rioja to continue striking coins (under assayer Manuel Pineyro) at the national level under the name of the River Plate Provinces. Finding any problem-free example of this type (which lasted only until 1836) is rather difficult, indicative of the political turbulence of the period (the year 1832 in fact being the same year the caudillo Facundo Quiroga returned to La Rioja after defeating Unitarian forces under Lamadrid), so such a brilliant example as this is perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for both the specialist and the type-collector. Pedigreed to the George Gund III collection (Stack’s auction of January 2007, lot 3220). Sports fans might recognize Gund as a former owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA) and the San José Sharks (NHL). NGC #4842623-002. Estimate: $20,000-up.

Choice reverse with sharp legends and luster throughout (faint scratch above right mintmark), but center of obverse rather weakly struck (which is typical), still considerably better than the assigned grade suggests (at least AU 50 in our opinion). All in all, a desirable example of very rare and highly sought type. NGC #4220112001. Estimate: $15,000-$22,500.

125. Guatemala, bust 2 escudos, Charles III, 1785M, rare. CT-414; KM-38. 6.72 grams. Problem-free XF with muted luster, desirable

strike, minor hairlines and high-point wear only, worthy of its status as finest in the census by six grades, an exceptional example for Guatemala colonial gold (which is all rare and desirable). NGC #4495904-001. Estimate: $6,000-$9,000.

127. Guatemala, bust 2 escudos, Ferdinand VII, 1817M, rare, NGC AU 55. CT-190; KM-70. Bold but slightly off-center strike

ging for a higher grade), bold strike for the period. This type is considered among the rarest gold issues of Latin America, with only fifteen specimens known, thirteen of which (including this coin) came from an “arras” (wedding dowry) that entered the numismatic market in the early 2000s. Curiously, Honduran records indicate no regular-issue gold coins were officially struck until 1888, so it is believed the present coin was struck after the stated date of 1883. A previous cataloger referred to this specimen as “borderline Mint State... one of the nicer coins from the group of 13... an essentially uncollectible and unknown type [that] is now extremely rare and desirable.” NGC #3234847-001. Estimate: $15,000-$22,500.

ex-Damon (stated on label). CT-7; KM-161.1; Fr-53.

Shipwreck Ingots Gold

“Tumbaga wreck,” sunk ca. 1528 off Grand Bahama Island

194. Large tumbaga gold ingot, 1816 grams, marked with fineness V and three dots (5.75 karat, or 23.96% fine), also marked

with R and S and several tax stamps of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, ex-“Tumbaga wreck” (ca. 1528), Garcia-Barneche Plate. Approx. 12-1/2” x 2” x 1”. This the largest and arguably most significant of the very few GOLD ingots found on the “Tumbaga wreck,”

which is the only known source of such ingots, all of which are very low in fineness (marked between 5-3/4 and 8 karats). Of the thirteen pieces known, all but two are cut down in their time, the intact two being a long and skinny rod and the present lot, which is somewhat clubshaped with a wide diameter and one end bulbous, the rounded bottom showing small marks of fineness V (incuse) and three dots in a column immediately followed by an S-shaped mark in a box plus a single dot in a box, the flat top of the bar showing four partial tax stamps (which show parts of CAROLVS IMPERATOR) and one mark with an R in a box (formerly seen as a B). The meaning of the S and R marks is not known. The top of the bar also shows several patches of encrustation, including both dark oxidation (from leached-out copper) and lighter (greenish) coral adhesion. The bottom shows a couple of mold-cracks (raised lines), next to which some lighter encrustation has accumulated as well. A typically sharp assayer’s “bite” (also encrusted) is cut from the smaller end. The overall color of the ingot is very brassy, which is to be expected for an ingot of such low fineness; but XRF analysis on this piece reports it as about 39% gold, 56% copper and 5% silver, a fineness (9.32K) that exceeds what is marked on the bar itself (5.75K) by over 60%! Curiously, the exposed metal in the “bite” at the end shows more of a gold color, leading us to speculate that the surface was purposefully tinted to pass off a fraudulently low assay. In any case, this bar and its shipmates are true tumbaga in that they were made from native artifacts created from a mix of copper and gold. Also, as postulated in Garcia-Barneche, these tumbaga gold bars were probably made and loaded onto the ship in Santo Domingo or Cuba, as opposed to the silver “tumbaga” bars whose origin is now known to be Michoacan, Mexico. From the “Tumbaga wreck” (ca. 1528), with photo-certificate, pedigreed to the Christie’s (London) auction of April 28, 1993 (lot #297), and plated on pages 66 and 68 of Agustín Garcia-Barneche’s The Tumbaga Saga, 2nd edition (2018), a copy of which accompanies the lot. Estimate: $35,000-up.

Unidentified 1500s wreck off the northern coast of South America 195. Cut gold “oro corriente” piece with crowned-CA tax stamp for

Charles I of Spain, 42.08 grams, ex-1500s wreck. 1” x 3/8” x 3/8”. Rectangularshaped cut piece, very important for showing the entire tax stamp consisting of a crowned CA above a two-branch pomegranate that almost certainly refers to Charles I and manufacture in Colombia (New Granada), the two perpendicular cuts very neat (not broken, hence more like a tejuelo, which would typically show fineness), with much smaller cut in one corner as well, possibly to regulate the piece down to exactly 12 escudos (one and a half onzas, a coin-like size in any case), with traces of dark encrustation around details. From an unidentified 1500s wreck off the northern coast of South America, with photo-certificate, pedigreed to our Auction #22, with original lot-tag #211, and to our Auction #14 (lot #297). Estimate: $6,000-$9,000.

Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida

196. Cut gold “finger” bar #33, 622 grams, marked with fineness XX• (20-1/4K) three times, foundry / owner SARGOSA / PECARTA and seven tax stamps, ex-Atocha (1622). 7” x 1” x 3/4”. A neat, flat, and slightly curved bar with both ends sharply cut, the top of which shows a multitude (seven) of partial circular tax stamps plus three fineness markings (each consisting of two X’s in a box topped with a dot inside a circle), probably to facilitate cutting into smaller pieces that each would show the official markings. The explicit cartouche SARGOSA / PECARTA, which only appears once, refers to the foundry at the mine (and city) of Zaragoza in Colombia and possibly the name of the assayer or owner (PECARTA). On the bottom of the bar is a scratched in number “A85” followed by “33” in black ink (Fisher numbers). From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #85A-1576-1 and pedigreed to our Auction #6 (lot #1624). Estimate: $25,000-up.

Santa Margarita, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida

197. Cut gold bar #22, 282 grams, marked with fineness XIX: (19.5K) four times, owner / assayer FERNAND / ALONSO and at least two tax stamps, ex-Santa Margarita (1622). 3-1/2” x 1” x 1/4”. A heavy but compact bar with a profusion of markings on top, the particularly bold finenesses each consisting of XIX in a box next to : in an adjoining box all stamped over some large, partial circular tax stamps and a full and clear cartouche with the names FERNAND[O] and ALONSO inside most likely referring to owners and/or assayers, with assayer’s “bites” rather crudely chipped from both ends, the bottom of the bar neatly stamped with a Treasure Salvors seal (only seen on the earliest finds) and the date 1980 and inventory number 22. From the Santa Margarita (1622), with original photo-certificate #22-M80 from 1982. Estimate: $15,000-up.

Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida

198. Lot of seven small gold nuggets, 1.12 grams total, ex-1715 Fleet. Each up to 1/4”. Very few natural gold

nuggets were found on the 1715 Fleet, so it seems odd that the Fisher marketers did not separate this lot into seven individual artifacts, but fortunately these pieces have retained their original plastic artifact tag and certificate. A few of the nuggets (mostly flat) are tiny, but some are substantial, and most likely they were being carried as “tax free” wealth by a passenger. From the 1715 Fleet (“Rio Mar” site), with original Cobb Coin Co. (Mel Fisher) plastic tag and photo-certificate #CC86-025. Estimate: $400-$600.

S.S. Central America, sunk in 1857 in deep water off North Carolina

199. Curiously shaped gold nugget, 5.9 grams, ex-S.S.

Central America (1857), in Collectors Universe promotional capsule. 1-1/8” x 1/2” x 1/8”. A whimsical natural creation, no doubt

saved from the melting pot by a prospector who was intrigued by its fingerlike (some would say phallic) shape consisting of a flat, rounded end connected to a long, straight projection, now appropriately (and erectly) ensconced in a plastic holder for the rest of eternity. From the S.S. Central America (1857). Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

200. Pinch of gold (nuggets), 1.5 grams, ex-S.S. Central

America, in Collectors Universe slab. Unlike most “pinches” thusly marketed, this lot appears to be all small nuggets (hundreds of them), with some dusty residue now coating the inside of the capsule, popular as an “affordable” piece of original gold from this well-known shipwreck. From the S.S. Central America (1857), with Collectors Universe certificate #4100. Estimate: $150-$225.

Non-Wreck

201. Large gold-in-quartz specimen, 323.2 grams, from the Sixteen to One Mine in Alleghany, California. Approx. 3-1/4” x 2-1/4” x 2”. A somewhat W-shaped section of coarse gold crystals impregnating a small cloud of matte-white quartz, the overall texture rather

“crispy” and dense, with an approximate net weight of gold 8.18 oz troy, intrinsically valuable but also a showpiece of natural “art” at its finest! Estimate: $12,500-$20,000.

fine) and several partial tax stamps, ex-“Tumbaga wreck” (ca. 1528), Garcia-Barneche Plate. 12-1/2” x 4” x 1/2”. A wide, flat bar with fairly smooth top surface showing bold markings in center (the small partial tax stamps more toward ends), slightly raised area to right, rough and darkly toned bottom, chevron-shaped assayer’s “bite” in one corner. As noted in Armstrong, this bar is a mold-mate with M-106. From the “Tumbaga wreck” (ca. 1528), plated on page 108 of Agustín Garcia-Barneche’s The Tumbaga Saga, 2nd edition (2018), also pedigreed to our Auction #7, lot #159, with photo-certificate.

Somewhat smooth top with curious radial flow-lines, marked with two partial circular tax-stamps near the ends, the bottom rougher but with bold fineness marking in center, darkly toned here and there, neat assayer’s “bite” in one corner. As noted in Armstrong, this bar is a moldmate with M-113, 115 and 116.

Attractive bar (wide and flat) with smooth top (except for small hammer-marks all over) showing most of the explicit (but frustratingly unattributed, also somewhat rare) assayer-mark in center next to a very clear but compact fineness and other markings, the two circular tax stamps nearer the ends, with neatly sliced assayer’s “bite” in one corner, no markings on bottom.

A rather large example with

choice full markings, especially the manifest number and the silvermaster’s “V” in one corner, plus full date 1621 and nearly full tax stamp in addition to the fineness and assayer, with typical double-scoop assayer’s “bite” in center, but perhaps best of all is the elegant diamond-topped AR monogram with what looks like a magic wand (all of which apparently refers to shipper / owner Arriola) near the left side, quite a showpiece for the advanced Atocha-bar collector. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S779 and investor folder containing three Treasure Salvors, Inc. stock certificates from 1986 (525, 1500 and 1517 shares).

Another well-marked bar, the monogrammed-

CA shipper / owner’s mark particularly prominent near one end next to three parallel lines, the other markings more central around a typical double-scoop assayer’s “bite,” also with date and silvermaster-mark V near the opposite end, along with most of a large tax stamp, great for display. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S696. Estimate: $25,000-up.

210. Large silver bar #723 from Potosí, 60 lb 7.68 oz troy, Class Factor 1.0, with markings of mine / date Po1622, manifest IIIUDXXXVI (3356), and fineness IIUCCCLXXX (2380/2400) followed by cartouche of assayer Mexia, shipper / owner’s marks (Muñibe / Nuñez) and tax stamps, ex-Atocha (1622). 14” x 4-1/2” x 2-1/2”. Smaller than the usual “large” bar (in fact a nicer size, as more manageable) but with great markings, per the Class Factor, which include a faint silvermaster-mark V in one corner and a D in the very center next to the double-scoop assayer’s “bite,” the bold shipper / owner’s marks to the sides quite prominent (consisting of a big MB monogram for Munibe and a “magic wand”-topped diamond for Nunez outside a deep vertical slash, also with a big but rubbed-out asterisk next to the MB), the tax stamps and Mexia cartouche faint but present. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S723. Estimate: $20,000-up.

211. Large silver bar #27 from Potosí(?), 78 lb 10.56 oz troy, Class Factor 0.5, no visible markings, ex-Atocha (1622). 13”

x 5” x 3/12”. While most collectors would appreciate studying and displaying markings, savvy Atocha enthusiasts should recognize the rarity of this bar as being DEVOID of any markings, in fact without a lot of evidence of corrosion either. Was it intentionally made without markings (hence contraband, although there is a small depression in the center that might have been a double-scoop assayer’s “bite” from the Potosí mine)? Or was it simply some sea turtle’s favorite scratching post for its long life under the sea? At the end of the day, the bar at least has value for being genuine Atocha silver, which was a hot thing for replica jewelry back in the 1990s and whose time might be here again. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S27. Estimate: $15,000-up.

214. Lot of five small silver “splash” ingots (no mark-

ings, 424 grams total, ex-Concepción (1641). Approx. 1-1/2” to 3-1/2” each. Various shapes but all flat and probably

unmarked (contraband), with varying degrees of encrustation (mostly clean) but all darkly toned, one with small piece broken off, neat little group overall. From the Concepción (1641). Estimate: $800-$1,200.

grams, ex-1715 Fleet. 1-3/8” x 1-1/8” x 7/8”. For whatever reason the 1715 Fleet is known for silver “wedges” (in fact one whole wrecksite is known as the “Wedge Wreck”), which are either contraband or amalgam, this dense little specimen almost certainly the former, with dark surfaces all over and just one spot of greenish encrustation, very neatly formed, marked in Sharpie with weight of “258.6 grms”. From the 1715 Fleet, with photo-certificate, and pedigreed to our Auction #13, with original lot-tag #405. Estimate: $750-$1,100.

this example not as long as most and with one end cut three times diagonally around a central pit in which thick encrustation now resides, the other end of the bar showing a diagonal seam from casting, the markings on one side clear and full but somewhat small.

Clumps

440. Clump of ten Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, dark and encrusted (uncleaned). 306.8 grams total. This piece is reminiscent of lot 424 of our Auction #18, a solid “brick” of 54+/- cob 8R that hammered for $31,000, in that the coins in both clumps are stacked by twos, matched by shape and size and oriented to take up the least amount of room, not at all like the presumably haphazard jumble of a bag and more like the organized false bottom of a contraband chest. That said, some canvas imprint does remain on a few coins in this clump, which are settled (again, in twos, except for two singletons) in a fan around a central cocoon of gray-white shells and encrustation, the coins all black as uncleaned but some with details visible (one with oMJ). Clumps of this size are quite rare and high in demand. From the 1715 Fleet, with photo-certificate. Estimate: $3,000-$4,500. 441. Small clump of four cob 1R (mint uncertain), encrusted and uncleaned. 12.94 grams total. Fallen stack of solid coins that are thick with dark oxidation and lots of green encrustation impregnated with small shell bits, a very small but presentable display. Estimate: $125-$200.

Whydah, sunk in 1717 off Cape Cod, Massachusetts

442. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1709Y, very rare and popular provenance, in original frame with certificate from Betts

and Bernstein (Silver Screen Partners) investment. S-P43a; KM-31; CT-869. Coin: 25.25 grams; frame: 21-1/2” x 13-1/2”. Solid coin with clear date and assayer, no noticeable corrosion, typically weakly struck, patchy toning, elegantly framed with original certificate and postcard showing an engraving of the ship as from a presentation to investors in the 1990s that proposed to (essentially) turn the Whydah museum into another Florida theme park. One of the more important numismatic aspects of the famous Whydah finds is the fact that a relatively large amount of cobs from Lima and Potosí were recovered, perhaps explaining the relative paucity of those coins found from the 1715 Fleet in our time—in other words, the majority of those coins were stolen off the Fleet wrecks by pirates and ended up with Bellamy on the Whydah! As with all the coins selected for these displays, the original certificate mistakenly calls the mint “MEXICO,” but there is also replacement certificate showing the correct mint; we have left the display intact, however, as a relic of the investment scheme that indirectly brought the otherwise unobtainable Whydah coins to market in recent years. Framed with original Maritime / Betts & Bernstein certificate #102421, with separate new certificate. Estimate: $5,000-$7,500.

SMS Konigsberg, sunk in 1915 in the Rufiji River, Tanzania, Africa 529. Lot of 30 German East Africa brass 20 heller, 1916-T, all NGC genuine. KM-15a. The SMS Konigsberg (laid down on January

12, 1905) was a German light cruiser that served in the High Seas Fleet prior to World War I. After the outbreak of hostilities, the ship was stationed in German East Africa where it sank the British cruiser HMS Pegasus. While conducting repairs in the supposed safety of the Rufiji River, the Konigsberg was blockaded and then attacked by two British monitors. She was damaged enough that the crew scuttled the ship on July 11, 1915 after salvaging the main guns. Further salvage removed machinery used to set up a provisional mint in 1916 at Tabora. There, 20 hellers were struck using brass from spent shell casings and copper from salvaged ship’s pipes. Minting continued until the capture of Tabora by the Belgian army. Typical crude appearance yet complete, all with some circulation and toning, a number of different varieties here. SEE INTERNET FOR PHOTO. Estimate: $700-$1,000. 530.

Estimate: $150-up.

794. Lot of two Potosí, Bolivia, cob 1/2R, Philip II, both

full details, including the countermark, tiny hole to right of cross, die-match with Lázaro #152 (rarity R2). Curiously, as is the case with this coin, most of the many different 1657s known (Lázaro shows seven) show an inner ring inside the border of dots on both sides, and it is one of only two dates in the 1600s (the other being 1666) to show the center date in three digits. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

Broad flan with two dates and mintmarks, three assayers, one nice crown, much surface corrosion (possibly from a wreck, otherwise Fine), toned on fields, desirable for its pedigree (this date considered rather scarce in Calbetó’s time but now more common due to the Consolación wreck of 1681).

1770; 1R and 1/2R 1760), and one of only about fifteen known of this denomination, almost all holed and/or plugged (which is certainly less desirable than graffiti), the present specimen very lightly toned and well struck, whose only flaw is a pair of letters, P and H, either punched or engraved into the fields to the sides of the crown above the shield (the letters notably matching the typography of various engraved-coin tokens we have seen from the 1700s), wistfully described in the auction catalog for the Emilio Ortiz collection as “incused letters ‘PH’ neatly placed beside the crown much like King Philip V might have preferred when he first authorized the pillar series in 1729.” For current price reference we note that a VF35 (PCGS) recently sold for $16,450 (including buyer’s fee) in Heritage. Pedigreed to the Emilio Ortiz collection (Swiss Bank Corp., January 1991, lot 252), and Plate Coin in Restrepo’s Monedas Coloniales Circulares (1999), and pedigreed to the Jorge Ortiz Murias collection of Colombian colonial minors (our Auction #11, lot #982).

Restrepo-278.1; KM-149. Rare one-year issue, this specimen with deep rainbow toning (mostly violet), nice reverse but obverse with slightly crude rim and weak center (more like VF for actual wear in our opinion, but probably still not as nice as the single example at PCGS in XF45), very pretty for the grade in any case.

almost prooflike in appearance and clearly well protected for the past 130 years! Interestingly, though this issue is acknowledged as an 1889/99 overdate, the first 8 is also punched over a 9, hence 1889/999 is a more accurate description. NGC #4435025-004. Estimate: $2,000-$3,000.

Cuba

1020. Cuba (Mayarí), silver 1/2-real(?) token with incuse MORALES above 1 over 2 denomination, made from a US Seated Liberty half dime (1800s), very rare. 1.10 grams. One of very few examples known, all believed to be made from half dimes, this one to our

knowledge the only one without a hole, with oversized arms (lions/castles) covering the entire reverse and the obverse punched with MORALES H(o) in a box above an incuse 1 over 2 believed to stand for 1/2 real. Clearly from the same series are some 10 centavos (supposedly) made on US dimes with incuse 10 and also a unique 20 centavos made on a Spanish colonial 2 reales (both of those denominations with JUNIO below the number), the last-mentioned with more of the reverse design showing a clear DE MAYARI below the arms.

Haiti

1073. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional “imitation cob” 2 reales, 1824-PMPY, rare, NGC VF 25, ex-Richard Stuart (stated on label). KM-unl (15.1 for type). Bold full

pillars with most of date and PMPY visible, full but off-center cross with P to left, nicely toned, somewhat crude surfaces (as made). Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection. NGC #4660731-010. Estimate: $300-$450.

KM-12.2.

1071. Haiti, 25 centimes,

An 14 (1817), Petion (small head), NGC MS 65, ex-Rudman. KM-15.2. Lustrous and well

struck (nearly prooflike) with incipient toning at rims, second highest grade in NGC census (shared with ten others) behind a single MS 66. Pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman collection. NGC #3392733-021. Estimate: $250-$375.

1072. Haiti, 1 gourde, 1895, NGC AU 58, ex-Rudman. KM-46.

Lustrous and bold, no toning, light surface hairlines in obverse fields only. Pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman collection. NGC #4173184-001. Estimate: $125-$200.

1074. Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central American Republic), 2 reales, 1825NR, NGC VF 25, Coins of the World Plate (stated on label). KM-10. Broad flan with full details, nice for the

grade, with olive toning (the fields mostly lighter), desirable one-year issue in unique design with mintmark T for Tegucigalpa and assayer initials NR for Narciso Rosal. After the provisional “imitation cob” issues of 1823-4, the Tegucigalpa mint began striking crude round coinage under the Central American Republic in the form of 1R dated 1824 and 2R dated 1825, as we see here, with crude design of sunover-mountains on obverse and small ceiba tree on reverse and legends specifically referring to the Central American Republic. The legends also show a fineness as 11 dineros (under the tree), which equated to the old Spanish colonial cob standard of 91.7% silver, in contrast to the 90.3% standard for the other CAR issues from Guatemala. However, the relative crudity of the Tegucigalpa issues, along with their lowerthan-indicated actual fineness, made them unpopular, and they were soon outlawed by decree of May 7, 1825. As a result, both issues are very scarce to extremely rare. Plate Coin in William Craig’s Coins of the World (1966). NGC #4724466-012. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

187


1075. Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central American Republic), 2 reales, 1831F, NGC AU 53. KM-9.3. With patchy toning

over light-silver surfaces with luster, good strike except for weakness on tree side, traces of die-clashing. NGC #4724466-014. Estimate: $200-$300.

1076. Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central American Republic), 1 real, 1830F, NGC AU 55. KM-19.2. Beautifully rainbow toned and well struck except for small natural lacuna near edge in rays (and in same place on other side). NGC #4724466-013. Estimate: $125-$200.

Honduras (State of Honduras) 1077. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 4 reales (provisional), 1849G, NGC AU 53.

KM-20. Full flan with complete but typically grainy details, interesting contrast between dark elements and silver-washed fields that actually bear muted luster, rare grade, in fact second finest in NGC census behind a single AU 55. NGC #4724563008. Estimate: $250-$375.

1078. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 4 reales (provisional), 1849G, NGC VF 30. KM-20. Full flan with bold details despite usual crudeness, light olive fields contrasting with coppery high points, should be more like AU- for actual wear, in our opinion. NGC #4715682-002. Estimate: $200-$300.

1079. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 4 reales (provisional), 1850G, wide-date variety, NGC AU 50, finest and only known example in NGC census. KM-20. With much

luster for the type, on typically silvery fields contrasting with coppery details, the rims crude but most of the interior data choice, with a few marks but practically no wear, a super grade for this series. NGC #4715682-003. Estimate: $500-$750.

188


1080. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 4 reales (provisional), 1851G, NGC AU 58, finest known in NGC census. KM-20a. Almost unheard-of grade for this crude series, this specimen with lustrous and nearly smooth fields and much better details than usual, finest by two grades in a type that shows only a single MS example (1852) across all dates (1849-1857, split into different types in KM based on progressive reductions in silver content). NGC #4715682004. Estimate: $300-$450.

1083. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, very low silver 4 reales (provisional), 1852G, NGC VF 35. KM-20b. Some high-point

wear but the fields smooth (also with traces of luster), mostly darkly toned, actually more like AU- in our opinion. NGC #4715682-005. Estimate: $250-$375.

KM-20b. Decent strike for the normally crude type, dark all over except for some light-olive color on fields. NGC #4724563-009. Estimate: $300-$450.

all over, typically crude but with all details visible, including an incuse and retrograde date on mountains side due to die-clashing. NGC #4715682-006. Estimate: $200-$300.

1085. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, copper-lead 4 reales, 1857/2F/G, rare, NGC VF 30 BN, finest and only example in NGC census. KM-20e. At the end of the Honduran provisional series comes this derelict issue that has no silver at all and is not even pure copper, which makes for a dark and dull appearance, yet on this example all the details are clear and the crudeness is at a minimum for the date, which is scarce (this overdate and overassayer variety being just plain rare, listed without values in KM). NGC #4724563010. Estimate: $500-$750.

189


1086. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 2 reales (provisional), 1832F, NGC XF details / damaged. KM-19. Decent strike

for the issue, toned as usual with contrastingly lighter fields, actually a tie for the finest in terms of strict grade but with small piece of edge missing (arguably as made, as opposed to damage). NGC #4724466015. Estimate: $150-$225.

1087. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 2 reales (provisional), 1839F, rare, NGC VF details / tooled, ex-Roberts (stated on label). KM-19. Full details, dark in color with lower than

usual contrast, some surface roughness (as made, no evidence of tooling despite what the label says), in fact tied with the finest in terms of strict grade, second rarest date of the series behind the often-counterfeited 1833 in the same fineness. Pedigreed to the Dana Roberts collection. NGC #4715682-001. Estimate: $250-$375.

1088. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 2 reales (provisional), 1844G, CREZCA, NGC XF 40. KM-19a. Very attractive

for the type, with much less crudeness than normal, nicely contrasting olive-green fields against coppery details, hint of luster, just some wear on high points for the grade. NGC #4724563-001. Estimate: $200-$300.

1089. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 2 reales (provisional), 1845G, NGC XF 45. KM-19a. Nice but slightly uneven

strike (still better than most for this type), with much dull-silver color on fields. NGC #4724563-002. Estimate: $200-$300.

1090. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, low silver 2 reales (provisional), 1847/5G, NGC VF 35. KM-19a. Mostly bold details (lots

fineness 0.835/0.900, NGC MS 63. KM51a. Choice

33; KM-unl. 1.09 grams. Host Fine with surface corrosion, rather dark. The attribution is based on the fact that this coin was found on Dominica; the hole appears to have been made from the tip of a square nail. Excellent pedigree. Pedigreed to the G.H. Dalrymple collection (Glendining, February 1923, lot #108), and the F. Pridmore collection (Glendining, September 1981, with original lot-tag #303), and plated on page 166 (#33) in his book (The Coins of the British Commonwealth of Nations, Part 3, West Indies, 1965), also pedigreed to the Edward Roehrs collection (Dix Noonan Webb, September 2010, lot #216).

on this host, a large copper coin, crude and cracked from the countermark), mostly darkly toned and with some encrustation but very clear host date, VG overall. This countermark is unlike any other, and Vlack shows it on a different type (Cayenne two sous) and mentions its appearance on Portuguese gold coins as well, with the caveat that “although there are no references using this counterstamp on other coins, this does not make it a counterfeit.” Estimate: $200-$300.

farthing, ca. 1798, incuse TB/o countermark on a French colonial copper crowned-C stampee (ca. 1763) on a French 2 sols of 1749, Vlack Plate Coin. Vlack-444 (this coin); Prid-3; KM-6. 1.75 grams.

This is the proper countermark (not just a TB with o added later to increase the value of a “black dogg” to that of a stampee type, per Pridmore) and host with full value of 2-1/4d, although the host is listed in Vlack as “Birmingham sous marques” (hence a contemporary counterfeit), the countermark a bold full XF and the host VG with full legends on countermark side and traces of crowned-C (disturbed by the countermark) on the other side. Plate Coin in An Illustrated Catalogue of The French Billon Coinage in the Americas (2004), by Robert A. Vlack, pedigreed to the Stack’s auction of January 2008 (lot #5501). Estimate: $100-$150.

pence, ca. 1798, incuse TB/o countermark on a French Cayenne copper 2 sous, 1789-A. Vlack-442; Prid-4; KM-

The host coin (French Cayenne as opposed to a colonial crowned-C) indicates that the countermark is TB with o added later to fraudulently increase the value of a 1-1/2d “black dogg” to that of a 2-1/4d stampee type (per Pridmore), this example with very bold and deep full countermark (XF) and fully detailed host (Fine), with traces of lighter original color. Estimate: $100-$150.

SEMPER TIBI PENDEAT HAMUS ., with NAVFRAGA REPERTA in exergue, engraver George Bower. A very famous and important medal, both for British medal collectors (who refer to it as the “Recovery of Treasure at St. Domingo” medal) and American historians, but also for the growing legions of shipwreck enthusiasts, as this piece was commissioned in commemoration for the salvage of the Spanish ship Concepción (sunk in 1641 off Hispaniola) by New Englander Sir William Phips using silver actually recovered from the wreck. Lustrous AU with very light toning, some marks in fields and the inevitable hairlines from polishing but overall one of the best we have seen. Estimate: $2,500-$3,750.

KM-24. 22.36 grams. Mostly likely crafted by an American serviceman commemorating his service during the land invasion of Puerto Rico; US troops began landing on July 25 at Guanica with more troops following. Given the date, it’s probable that this soldier landed at Ponce a few days later. By August 13, an armistice between the US and Spain ended hostilities on the island with Spanish troops leaving by Oct. 18, the same day the US flag was formally raised at San Juan. Intricately crafted piece with ornate lettering and decorations, holed at top for safekeeping. Engravings on Puerto Rican pesos are very rare. Pedigreed to the Efrain Archilla Diez collection. Estimate: $1,500-up.

KM-24. 24.78 grams. Engraved by a serviceman from Brooklyn, New York in service with Troop C of the New York Volunteer

Cavalry during the Spanish-American War. His story during the war is carved into this coin as the troop went from Camp Black, New York to Camp Alger, Virginia, then on to Camp Brooke, Virginia. They then sailed aboard the USS Massachusetts (Mass. on the coin) to Puerto Rico, eventually landing and marching on Ponce by Aug. 8. The Troop then moved on Coamo and played a pivotal role during the Battle of Coamo by pushing and chasing the Spanish troops from their position. Troop C followed the Spanish troops back to Asomante (spelled Asamonte on the coin) where they came under artillery fire from an entrenched Spanish battery. In conjunction with the 3rd Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, Troop C pushed the Spanish soldiers from their position. Upon the signing of the armistice between the US and Spain, Troop C left Puerto Rico on Sept. 3, 1898 aboard the USS Mississippi (Miss. on the coin) for New York. They arrived on Sept. 10 and, after a period of furlough, were mustered out of service on Nov. 25. The Waldorf-Astoria engraving refers to a veterans meeting at the hotel, most likely the 1899 parade for Admiral Dewey. Troop C of the New York Calvary commanded by Captain Charles I. DeBevoise participated in the parade. The event ended with a reception at the Waldorf Astoria, thereby completing the journey depicted on the coin. AU overall, lightly cleaned with rainbow toning on reverse around rims, bold engraving work. Pedigreed to the Efrain Archilla Diez collection. Estimate: $1,500-up.

authorized for this highest denomination of the 1757 series. Bold vignette of royal arms to left, pen signatures of S. Nevill, H. Hartshorne, and A. Johnston to right. Reverse with “It’s DEATH to counterfeit this Bill” above leaf design (a mid-1750s colonial anti-counterfeiting device). Very tough to find even in Fine, much less in Very Fine as evident in being the only one in the PMG census. Considerably better than the Eric P. Newman example. PMG notes stains which are light and mostly found on the reverse. As with the prior lot, a nice even serial number. Pedigreed to the Henry D. Osborne collection. PMG #8059652-003.

Osborne collection. PMG #8059652-002. Estimate: $200-$300.

1397. Pennsylvania, 20 shillings, March 20, 1771, serial 3266, plate A, Declaration signer Francis Hopkinson signature, PMG VF 25. Fr-PA-148. Francis Hopkinson (Sept. 21,

1737 to May 9, 1791) was an author, designer, and civil servant who represented New Jersey at the Second Continental Congress where he signed the Declaration of Independence. His signature, much like how it appears on the Declaration, is in the middle of the three signatures on the obverse. Hopkinson is also notable for having designed the first official American flag in his service on the Navy Board.

note is three digits higher than the CHPM plate note. PMG notes “stain lightened” on the label; we note paper toning and a pinhole in the upper left corner. The CHPM plate note also has a pinhole in the same location, possibly from storage at the bank. A beautifully designed, ABNCo crafted note from an exceedingly rare Colombian Banco. PMG #8059457-001.

WPM-S225s. Three POCs. The Banco de La Unión, founded in 1877, was renamed the Banco de Costa Rica in 1890 and continues to operate to this day. This beautiful note is dated a year prior to the name change and is a prime example of the high quality, artistic work the ABNCo did. One of just three in the PMG census with two others in 64 without the EPQ designation. While specimens of the lower denominations in this series have come up on the market from time to time, the 25 pesos remains excessively rare. Clearly choice with vibrant ink colors and wonderful paper quality, no problems such as pinholes or mounting that are found on other Banco de la Union specimens. PMG #8059360001. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

Like the prior lot, this is an attractive note crafted by the talented designers and engravers of ABNCo. Choice, with PMG noting a pinhole which is rather tiny and located in the upper left corner. Beyond that, this note avoided the mounting that occurred with other specimens in the series and retains excellent ink colors and paper quality. PMG #8059360-002. Estimate: $1,000-$1,500.

Banco Anglo Costarricense

1439. San José, Costa Rica, Banco de Costa Rica, 100 colones

remainder, 1-8-1908, series B, PMG Choice UNC 64 EPQ.

SCWPM-S177r. Three

POCs. Like lots 1436 and 1437, this remainder from the Banco de Costa Rica (previously the Banco de La Unión) shows off the craftsmanship of the ABNCo. Subdued yet prominent rose and green ink colors throughout, nicely centered printing with good margins, strongly embossed with original paper wave thus clearly deserving the EPQ designation. PMG #8059360-003. Estimate: $500-$750.

colon specimen, 23-6-1917, series A, serial 005004. SCWPM-

Excellent colors and paper quality, somewhat shifted obverse printing precludes this note from a higher grade. PMG #8039431-005. Estimate: $100-$150.

ink color, second finest known in the PMG census with one higher in 64 EPQ. PMG #8058544-012. Estimate: $150-$225.

on this note with clear offset printing resulting in Guell’s portrait seemingly superimposed over the Banco Central building from the reverse. The reverse also displays over-inking where the letters and some design elements are excessively bold and fuzzy. VF, light stains on reverse. The only example we could find appearing on the market with these errors. Estimate: $80-$120.

249

perb Gem UNC 67 EPQ Star, finest known in PMG census.

This is the finest and only note graded by PMG as 67 EPQ with the Star designation which is assigned by PMG to “notes with exceptional eye appeal for their assigned grade.” As this note possesses excellent colors and very bold embossing throughout, it’s clear to see why PMG assigned so high of a grade. PMG #8051506-024. Estimate: $100-$150. SCWPM-92a.

Saint-Domingue was a French colony on the western half of Hispaniola from 1659 to 1804, in what is now Haiti and is denoted on this map as “Partie Francoise.” The eastern part was Spanish or “Partie Espagnole.” It’s interesting to note that this 18th-century map, being of French origin, refers to the island as “St. Domingue” and not as “Hispaniola.” Map view includes tip of Cuba as well as Turks & Caicos Islands. From Rigobert Bonne’s famous Atlas de toutes les parties connues du Globe Terrestre (1770), Paris. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century and succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as royal cartographer to France in 1773.

Antilles Islands name was derived from “Antillia,” a phantom island reputed, in the 15th century, to lie in the Atlantic Ocean west of Spain and Portugal. After the time of Columbus maps of this area were more accurately drawn and depictions of “Antillia” gradually disappeared, giving way to the 18th-century map you see here which includes many popular areas such as St. Thomas, St. Croix, Antigua, Martinique, Tortuga, St. Maarten, and Tortola as well as the western part of Puerto Rico and northern Venezuela.

1577. Allen & Thurber patented

Mass. by Allen & Thurber (as stamped on barrel with patent listed as 1827), one of the first successful revolvers and an interesting transition piece from simple percussion pistols to the six-shooters of Wild West fame, typically carried by soldiers in the Mexican War and miners in the 1849 Gold Rush.

marked WATERTOWN ARSENAL / JANUARY 1863. Approx. 17” x 13” x 8”, each ball about 3/4”, about 30 kg total. The Watertown Arse-

nal, established in 1816, was a major American arsenal located on the northern shore of the Charles River in Watertown, Mass. and became a major supplier of ammunition to Union soldiers during the American Civil War to meet the demand for large numbers of field and coastal gun carriages. City Point on the James River, where this crate was salvaged, served as headquarters of the Union Army during the Siege of Petersburg in 1864-65. On August 9, 1864, a tremendous explosion (later confirmed as sabotage) shook the city and examination of the wreckage revealed that a barge loaded with ammunition had exploded, detonating 30,000 artillery shells and 75,000 rounds of small arms ammunition. Perhaps this crate (with WATERTOWN ARSENAL / JANUARY 1863 stenciled on lid, its contents of 1000 musketballs uncleaned and separate in bags of 50), which does show signs of fire damage, was on that barge, and while the ammunition didn’t explode, it was rendered useless. The explosion didn’t much hinder the Union war effort, as the City Point supply depot was back in full operation in nine days. (Pickup in person recommended; shipping at buyer’s risk.) Found in the James River at City Point in Richmond, Virginia. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

1613. Carved coconut “toasting cup” from the Republic of Independent Guiana, scrimshawed with denomination “2

CTS” (2 centimes) and date 1886, rare. 76 grams, 4-1/2” x 2-3/4”. Finely scrimshawed on native coconut by a liberated prisoner of the notorious penal colony of Devil’s Island (established in 1852 some 28 miles off the mainland) representing the short-lived Republic of Independent Guiana, better known by the name of its capital, Counani, south of the French Guiana capital of Cayenne, in an area that at the time was disputed between Brazil and France and whose borders are not totally settled to this day. The Republic of Independent Guiana lasted only from 1886 to 1891, under the life-presidency of Julio (Jules) Gros. The design on this cup consists of a laurel wreath around the 20 centimes denomination (possibly the amount required for the prisoner’s release to freedom), plus the French Imperial eagle, a native Indian in ornate dress, and a capped monkey perched in a detailed tree and foliage. A one-of-a-kind piece with appeal to several areas of history. Estimate: $400-$600.
