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 non-live 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 within 45 days 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 within the payment period if no communication is received after multiple attempts to contact winning bidder. Title to each lot does not pass until the item has been paid in full. Any late payments (45 days 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, echeck, money order, wire transfer, direct deposit, PayPal, Zelle, 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 and Zelle (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. 9) 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. 10) 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. 11) 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. We welcome requests of additional photos or HD video of the items to be sold. Photos taken by grading services may be included in the online lot listings; they may differ in color and brightness plus the holder prongs may not be visible. 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 27 Live on the Internet: Wednesday-Friday, May 27-29, 2020

We are all leading different lives from those we had just two months ago. In some ways, things have changed greatly for the time being; but in other ways, they’ve stayed the same. One thing that hasn’t changed is our passion for numismatics, and if you’re reading this, no doubt the same applies to you. Our service and integrity also have not changed, nor has our ability to bring you the best selection and variety around, including the following highlights in this sale: Gold Cobs features the first part of a date collection of some of the best 1715-Fleet Lima gold cobs we have ever offered, including a rare 1703H 8 escudos graded NGC MS 62 (lot 10) and an eye-catching 1697/6H 4 escudos graded NGC MS 64 (lot 23). We also have an unprecedented pair of Seville, Spain, cob 2 escudos from the Atocha and Santa Margarita shipwrecks graded PCGS AU50 and MS61 respectively (lots 45 and 46). Shipwreck Ingots boasts yet more treasure from the Atocha in the form of two long gold “finger” bars and three large silver ingots. Our usual wide selection of Shipwreck Coins features many dated silver cobs from the Concepción (lots 169-208) and Capitana (lots 209-243) as well as an assortment of choice pieces from the ever-popular Atocha (lots 77-158) and 1715 Fleet (lots 291-342). Be sure to check out the Potomac Collection in Mexican Silver Cobs, which contains some key “Early Series” Charles-Joanna assayer-Rincón rarities like an ever-popular 3 reales (lot 439), a 2 reales plated in both Guttag’s and Nesmith’s works (lot 440), and a very choice ½ real (lot 443). A 2 maravedís from this collection (lot 460) is the first of its kind we have offered. Also don’t miss the very rare Royals (galanos): 8 reales 1727D (lot 478) and 2 reales 1715J (lot 491). The Lima and Potosí Silver Cobs sections are packed with many 8 reales from a fresh collection, including several nice Potosí Royals (galanos), like a 1654E 8 reales discovery piece struck with previously unknown dies (lot 578). In Other Silver Cobs we feature one of the largest selections of Colombian cobs we have ever had, a key being a very rare billon cob ¼ real of 1622 (lot 662), the first one we have offered. Here you will also find the first coins of the Nueva Granada Collection, an expertly crafted assemblage of the very best Colombian coinage from the Spanish colonial era into the Republic period. This collection continues into the World Coins section where we have such rarities as: the finest known Bogotá 1770VJ pillar 8 reales graded PCGS MS65 (lot 821); a Popayán 1814/3JF bust 8 reales of Ferdinand VII graded PCGS XF40 (lot 823); and the highly sought and finest known Medellín 1868 medio peso graded PCGS MS62 (lot 854); all of which are plated in Jorge Emilio Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). Also note the 1888 “Cocobola” 50 centavos (lot 874) and several other choice and rare Colombian “half dollars.” We’re also pleased to offer the second part of the Whittier Collection of Bolivian Republic monetary medals. An 1840 medallic gold 1 scudo Velasco issue (lot 736) is of particular importance in the collection. Our Costa Rica and Guatemala offerings (including Central American Republic) are quite strong with several gold coins and rare silver coins, including countermarked pieces, chiefly the Costa Rica Type I 8 reales circular hole-punch and Carrillo star-marked Potosí, Bolivia, 1831JL 8 soles graded NGC VG 8, c/s VF standard (lot 890). The advanced countermark collector will also want to stick around for a variety of Guatemala Type II and III countermarked 8 reales (lots 1085-1102). Other countries of note in World Coins include: Cuba, which features a 1916 gold proof 1 peso graded NGC PF 66 Ultra Cameo (lot 924) plus many gold and silver piefort strikes (some near-unique) graded by NGC and pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman numismatic cabinet; Ecuador, with the Quito-minted 1841MV gold 8 escudos graded NGC XF 45 made popular in part by a vivid description of the coin in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick (lot 961) alongside several high-grade escudos like the 1836FP Quito gold 4 escudos graded NGC MS 61 (lot 963), in addition to a strong run of silver; German States, featuring a collection formed in the 1950s and 1960s with such highlights as an 1801 Brunswick-Lüneburg-Calenburg-Hannover taler of George III, who was also the king of Great Britain (lot 1016); and Honduras, with a large assortment of provisional coinage followed by rare Republic proof pattern coins, like a denomination set of 1862 bronze patterns in Mint State graded by NGC (lot 1139). Indian coin experts will not want to miss the opportunity to acquire some original 1947 British India proofs (lots 1154-1158), notably including a Lahore-mint rupee graded PCGS PR63, one of just two known of an issue that was actually unknown until 2013. Within Medals and Decorations we offer some important pieces like the Ecuador Battle of Pichincha silver military decoration from 1822 pedigreed to the J. Sanford Saltus collection and the American Numismatic Society archives (lot 1274), a large variety of British Admiral Vernon medals pedigreed to the John Adams collection (lots 1277-1289) including two rare silver Porto Bello examples, and the impressive Mexican gold Cross of Tepeaca from 1821 with original suspension and ribbon pedigreed to the J. Coolidge Hills collection (lot 1291). The colonial United States collector should note our U.S. Paper Money section, where we have several high-grade notes like the finest known Continental $2 from May 10, 1775 (CC-2) graded PMG Choice AU 58 EPQ Star (lot 1311). World Paper Money holds many Colombian bank note rarities like the 1819 50 centavos / 4 reales remainder printed during Bolívar’s liberation campaign (lot 1321) as well as the Cartagena Estado Soberano de Bolívar 10 pesos and 1 peso graded PMG XF 40 and AU 53 respectively (lots 1341 and 1342). A significant denomination run of 20, 10, and 5 pesos from Guatemala’s Banco Colombiano in 1901 appear as lots 1355-1357. Our Coin Jewelry offerings continue with plenty of ready-to-wear shipwreck and non-wreck coins in mountings. Following that, the Artifacts sections contain lovely items recovered from wrecks like the Atocha and 1715 Fleet (don’t miss lot 1426 for a heavily pedigreed breech block from the Fleet) plus non-wreck objects like militaria, firearms, and fossils. We wish all of our bidders good luck and good health, and we appreciate your constant support and passion for collecting. 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.

SHIPWRECK HISTORIES

Please visit our website at 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 recent NGC capsules may 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 contact us if they have any questions or would like additional photos or videos of any lot in our auction. Inquiries can be sent through the auction site or by emailing us at office@sedwickcoins.com.

flatness to each side, the latter off-center just enough to allow the last three digits of the date to be fully visible, the final digit clearly a 9 (label says only 1689) with underdigits that to our eyes seem to be clearly 8/7, yet Spanish references call them the less-logical (and not as visually supported) 7/5, perhaps due to a purported die-match with a known 1685 (although we’ve never seen one), in any case quite rare and desirable, especially in choice grade (surfaces somewhat grainy, as made).

Interesting example with no fineness or foundry/assayer marks but four indistinct partial tax stamps (showing just the outer borders of dots), also lacking any assayer’s “bite” (hence possibly contraband), with one end showing a rough break (as opposed to a neatly chiseled cut), also smoother than most but otherwise typical, tested by XRF to contain 88.51% gold, 11.49% silver and no other elements.

corroded), with bold fineness and two full and well-detailed tax stamps with crowned C inside reeded rims, a couple spots of extra metal (typical) and one interior stress-fracture, plus square-shaped cut in edge (too large for an assayer’s “bite,” so possibly for making a plata corriente piece), nicely toned on that side (the other side blank and rough).

most Class Factor-0.8 bars, this big loaf of silver shows corrosion on its surfaces, causing the loss of lighter markings like date/mine, assayer, tax stamps and even fineness (assumed to be 2380/2400 like almost all of them), but the manifest number is still very bold, as are the large owner/shipper marks A and RL, also with cylindrical assayer’s “bite” at one end, desirable as provenanced to the Las Vegas 1987 auction and with Gene Lyon research. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S334, pedigreed to the Caesars Palace auction of September 26, 1987 (lot #188), with original catalog (also with January 1988 Skin Diver magazine reporting on the results), and with original manifest report from Gene Lyon. Estimate: $20,000-$30,000.

61. Silver “barreton” ingot #845, 17 lb 1.44 oz troy, Class Factor 0.6, marked with fineness IIUCCCLXXX (2380/2400),

ex-Atocha (1622). 14” long, 2-1/4” wide, 1-1/4” tall. Not overly corroded (just some pitting at each end) but lacking some of the usual markings to merit the 0.6 Class Factor, like most barretons, yet with very bold and clear fineness in very center, Fisher number boldly stamped in bottom, desirably manageable size and shape. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S845. Estimate: $5,000-$7,500.

An impressive mound of silver with flat top and rounded bottom (cast in simple pit), with various stamps on its pitted topside mostly corroded away but the fineness in center still fairly clear above what appears to be a rectangular assayer cartouche (unreadable), typically arc-shaped assayer’s “bite” in edge, very rare provenance. From the 1733 Fleet (Coffins Patch / San Francisco site). Estimate: $15,000-$22,500.

with crude A’s, N (retrograde), and O’s; pillars side with Gothic R, rounded panel with PLVSVLT inside, three dots for denomination, legend with crude A’s, D’s (made from I and O), and N’s (both retrograde and normal). Struck only from April of 1536 to early 1538 at the latest (and only under assayer R), the 3 reales was deemed too close in size and value to the 2 reales, but ironically most specimens are broader in diameter than the 4 reales that replaced them. Some light surface corrosion (hence the low weight), but with pretty bluish toning around the almost-full legends. From the Potomac Collection, also from the Spanish 1554 Fleet. NGC #4769835-001.

From the Potomac Collection and pedigreed to the F.C.C. Boyd Collection (Superior auction of August 1975, with original lot-tag #1923), also Plate Coin #2424 in the Guttag collection as cataloged by Edgar H.

emissions from the Mexico City mint in 1536 using Gothic punches brought from Spain, with full legends and inner details, no doubling or corrosion, well centered, and lovely toning all over, in fact the best example of this type we have ever handled and essential for the avid collector. From the Potomac Collection and pedigreed to Superior auction of December 1972, with original lot-tag #2204. NGC #4762849-005. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

478. Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales Royal (galano), 1727D, very rare, NGC VF details / plugged. S-M23a; KM-R47; Cal-1380.

26.62 grams. Typically full and beautiful details on a broad, round flan with just a couple tiny edge-splits, lovely toning, virtually undetectable

plugged hole near edge, die-match with Lázaro #83, possibly re-worked from earlier dies as the final digit of the date has raised metal around it. Interestingly, the assayer-mark D on this coin has been proven to stand for the monastery of the Holy Desert of Mount Carmel (Santo Desierto del Monte Carmelo), which had inherited ownership of the office of assayer upon the death of assayer Gerónimo Becerra in 1677, according to research by Jorge Proctor. The actual working assayer responsible for this 1727 coin was José de Rivas Angulo, who later used assayer-mark R for coins made in 1729-30. Also of interest is the fact that this coin falls at the end of the period of Mexican coinage investigated by the crown upon reports of debasement and substandard weights, which eventually led to the 1728 decree to change the design to “pillar dollar” coinage, for which the first model was completed in 1729 and the first coins were made in 1732. Although Royals like this coin were the exception, it is easy to see how the very crude Mexican cob issues of the 1720s were suspicious. NGC #5711821-004. Estimate: $15,000-up.

549. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayer B (early 5th period?). S-P14; KM-5.1. 27.23 grams. Broad flan with nearly full

legends, choice full shield (slightly doubled) and cross, bold P-B and denomination o-Viii, XF with some dark spots. The jury is still out in deciding where to place this issue chronologically, as the unique “alien-like” lions and simple-square castles (Sellschopp #269 and #280) do not match any other periods, and overall the style is more like 3rd period (commas in legend, finer details and broader flan) than 5th period. In the past we have diverged from the opinions of Sellschopp and Paoletti on this point, but clear examples like this one (with full denomination and style of lions matching other 5th-period issues) cause us to return to agreement with these venerable references, yet with the footnote that we can never really know where this unique design falls in the sequence. Estimate: $200-$300.

547. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayer RL. S-P13; KM-5.1; Cal-675. 27.10 grams. Good full shield and cross, VF+ with spotty

3.76 grams. Far less common than the earlier series of copper coins, with S-castle-P (instead of monogram and assayer and denomination) on obverse and lion above assayer (instead of pillars and mintmark) on reverse, KAROLVS OINTVS (quintvs) in legend (as struck after Joanna’s death in 1555), intact flan despite minor surface pitting, near XF overall, darkly toned. Pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman numismatic cabinet. Estimate: $250-$375.

653. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, Philip IV, assayer E

below mintmark RN to left (1628), rare, NGC VF 35. Restrepo-

Barrel-shaped flan (struck on a diagonal) with bold full shield and cross, nearly full crown, full NRE and bold denomination VIII, deeply toned. NGC #4922284-007. Estimate: $600-$900.

654. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, Philip IV, assayer E, NRE/NER to left (late 1620s), very rare, PCGS genuine, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label). Restrepo-M45.11; S-C3; KM-3.4;

Cal-Type 298. 27.06 grams. Bold full cross with choice castles and lions (the

latter with unusual but distinctive pronounced circular/crescent design in legs), well-detailed full shield with transposed lions and castles at upperleft, full mintmark-assayer showing R/E and E/R to left and denomination VIII (vertically) to right, full 16 of date, AU with light toning in crevices, somewhat crude edge (as made).

655. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, assayer not visible

(E ) below mintmark ( R)N to left (late 1620s), NGC AU 55. Restrepo-M45.3; S-C3; KM-3.4; Cal-Type 298. 27.49 grams. Broad flan

with peripheral flatness but nice centers including top half of shield and nearly full cross-lions-castles, trace of N of mintmark to left and denomination VIII vertically to right. NGC #4771288-001. Estimate: $800-$1,200.

658. Bogotá, Colombia, cob 8 reales, Philip IV, assayer not

visible, denomination VIII to left, mintmark NR to right (1627-51), quadrants of cross transposed, no inner border on cross side, very rare, PCGS XF detail / tooled. Restrepo-M44;

KM-3.3; Cal-Type 337. 26.80 grams. This mysterious coin shares aspects of several others of the same Restrepo type (M44), without matching any completely. The cross side lacks an inner border of dots, matching Restrepo-M44.9 (1627), but the shield side has an inner border (unlike M44.9), with the denomination (vertically with V facing outward) and mintmark •N•R• fairly clear flanking the full but doubled shield with pomegranate at bottom and lions and castles transposed at upper-left (also full crown). A previous offering of this coin in Aureo & Calicó attributed it to 1628, but we see nothing specific confirming that attribution. Choice full cross-lions-castles, nicely toned all over, the stated “tooling” nothing more than a sharp scrape on a flat area near edge on cross side. PCGS #39179292. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

656. Bogotá, Colombia, cob 8 reales, Philip IV, assayer P

below mintmark NR to left (late 1620s), denomination VIIII [sic] to right (unique error), quadrants of cross transposed.

shield with very bold full error denomination and clear mintmarkassayer, bold full (oversized) cross with well-detailed lions and castles (great for die-study), VF+ with contrastingly toned fields, light surface porosity. Estimate: $1,250-$2,000.

659. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 4 reales, Philip IV, assayer E

below mintmark RN to left (late 1620s), rare, PCGS VF30.

Restrepo-M36.2; S-C3; KM-2.4; Cal-Type 261. 13.06 grams. Nice full crown over

most of shield with bold RN and clear E to left, II(II) to right, nearly full and bold but off-center cross with legend clockwise 90 degrees, light toning and small spots of “horn silver.” Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39227630. Estimate: $600-$900.

657. Bogotá, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 1634A, quadrants of cross transposed, very rare, PCGS VF detail / tooled, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label). Restrepo-M44.15; S-B5; KM-3.3; Cal-1540. 27 grams. Full 16 of date followed by bottom half of 34 outside of full but doubled and partially flat cross with very well-detailed lions, some flat spots in otherwise full crown and shield with bold full •N•R•A to left and denomination •VIII• vertically to right, a few dark spots, light old scratches in flat areas. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label), and Plate Coin on page 79 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39227631. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

660. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 4 reales, Philip IV, assayer E

below mintmark C to right (1630s), rare, NGC VF 30. Restrepo-

M36.8; S-C3; KM-2.4; Cal-Type 261. Full shield (slightly weak at bottom) with full and bold denomination +IIII+ to left and +C+E+ to right, bold full cross (slightly off-center), nicely toned. NGC #4837207-002. Estimate: $600-$900.

Pillars and Waves

661. Bogotá, Colombia, cob 2 reales, Philip IV, assayer A

below mintmark NR to left (1632-42), castles and lions in proper quadrants on both sides, NGC VF 30. Restrepo-M28.15;

S-B5; KM-6.1; Cal-939. 6.87 grams. Bold full •N•R•A between bold king’s ordinal IIII and nearly full shield (weak at bottom), bold but incomplete cross (oversized on a small flan and slightly off-center), nicely toned, small part of edge crude (as made). NGC #4485805-025. Estimate: $600-$900.

663. Bogotá, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 1655, assayer PoRS, rare, PCGS XF40. Restrepo-M46.19; S-B7; KM-7.1; Cal-1555. Bold full pillars-and-waves with full and bold PoRS to left and 1655 to right (both vertical), mintmark oNR in middle and PLVS / VL/ TRA above, bold full shield (somewhat crude, as made) on other side, nicely toned around details. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39227632. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

662. Bogotá, Colombia, billon cob 1/4 real, date not visible

(1622), assayer A to right and mintmark S to left, lions and castles transposed, very rare, NGC Fine details / environmental damage, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label). Restrepo-M11.1;

S-B1; KM-1; Cal-529. 1.86 grams. Nearly

full crown and shield with bold mintmark S (for Santa Fe) to left and weak but certain assayer A to right, other side with weak but full pomegranate inside pillars flanked with P to left and V to right (for PLVS VLTRA), lightly toned and somewhat porous all over. The Restrepo reference (in which this coin is pictured) attributes this issue to Cartagena, for at the time it was believed that all coins prior to 1627 were struck in Cartagena, but more recent research presented by Jorge Proctor in 2018 shows that all but the 8 reales of 1621 were actually struck in Bogotá (Santa Fe), which makes more sense for this coin with pomegranate and transposed lions and castles. In any case there are very few of these billon (or enriched silver) 1/4R known (Restrepo says three), this being the first we have offered. Pedigreed to the Ponterio sale #125 of April 25-26, 2003 with lot tag #2467, and plated on page 68 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). NGC #4770572-011. Estimate: $3,000-up.

pomegranate to right, very rare, PCGS VF detail / salt water damage. Restrepo-M46.28; S-B7; KM-7.1; Cal-1558. Bold full shield with

denomination VIII to left and full pomegranate to right, very bold full pillars (complete crowns above) with bold Po.RS. to left and weak but certain date 166Z to right (both vertical), full mintmark oNR, choice strike but with light corrosion on cross side only, die-match with Waldo Newcomer specimen. PCGS #39179293. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

665. Bogotá, Colombia, cob 1 real, 1653R, motto as P-LV-

S, rare, NGC AU 53, Nesmith Plate Coin (stated on label).

Full but dramatically doubled (simple) shield and cross, with clear 653 of date in legend as a result but also with strange placement of what looks like two lions next to each other in shield, the crown above the right lion proving that that lion was originally next to the top-left castle (hence normal quadrants), full king’s ordinal IIII in legend, nicely toned. Plated in Nesmith’s 1958 article “A Hoard of the First Silver Coins of Nuevo Reino de Granada (Colombia).” NGC #4917432-001. Estimate: $600-$900. Restrepo-M24.9; S-B7; KM-9; Cal-778. 3.49 grams.

The Nueva Granada Collection of Colombian Rarities With this auction we proudly present the first part of the Nueva Granada Collection of Colombian rarities. Colombian coins have been an area of specialty for us for many years. In 2011 we sold the Dr. Frank Sedwick Collection of Colombian Republic gold coins, and in 2012 we sold the Jorge Ortiz Murias Collection of Colombian colonial minors, in addition to many smaller collections and major single items before and since then. Now, with the Nueva Granada Collection, we are offering probably the broadest and most important selection of Colombian coins in the history of our auctions. For this momentous occasion we thought it would be appropriate to quote Dr. Frank Sedwick’s book The Gold Coinage of Gran Colombia (1991) verbatim to summarize Colombia’s fascinating history as it relates to coinage: El Nuevo Reino de Granada, The New Kingdom of Granada, or later simply New Granada, was what the Spanish conquerors called the northernmost region of South America discovered about 1500. Customarily, European colonizers named New World settlements or regions in honor of cities, regions, or noble personages of the mother country. Early towns of the thirteen North American colonies, even the appellations of the colonies themselves, reflect the same pattern. In addition the Spaniards often combined Catholic pieties with an approximation of the original Indian names of places to designate locations like Santa Fe (Holy Faith) de Bogotá (Bacatá), known until the nineteenth century chiefly as the city of Santa Fe rather that the present-day Bogotá, capital of Colombia. Granada, of course, is a famous city and province in southern Spain, ruled for hundreds of years by the Moors before it was retaken by the armies of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel in 1492, the same year that Columbus discovered America. Granada also means pomegranate in Spanish, a tree whose fruit is to this day symbolically depicted between two cornucopias (one spilling fruit and the other, coins!) at the top of the Colombian shield or coat of arms visible on the reverse of most Colombia gold coins after 1837. In descending order on the same shield are the pileus (the Phrygian or liberty cap of roman origin, symbolically reinstituted during the French Revolution) and a ship on each side of two oceans divided by a strip of land, Panamá, a part of Colombia when the shield was devised. Colombia remains the only South American country with coastline on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Established in 1525, Santa Marta on the Atlantic coast was the first permanent settlement in what was to become the New Kingdom of Granada. Eight years later, and nearby, what later became the fortress city of Cartagena de Indias was founded, the “de Indias” (of the Indies) to distinguish it from the coastal Cartagena in Spain. After the Spaniards moved inland from these and other coastal towns to the high interior in search of the legendary El Dorado, settlements like Santa Fe de Bogotá, Popayán, and Cali became the heart of New Granada. El Dorado, the region of undiscovered treasure and today the name of Bogotá’s airport, was at first not a place but a person, an Indian chief anointed with gold dust and surrounded by abundant gold and jewels at Lake Guatavita near Bogotá. Although El Dorado was never found, sufficient gold and emeralds were mined in the highlands to require a protected storehouse like Cartagena before their shipment to Spain. It should be noted that, unlike Mexico, Colombia never had much silver except as a residue in the mining of gold, and perhaps this is why pillar dollars with the Nuevo Reino or Popayán mintmark are so very rare. The Spaniards ruled for almost three centuries, with Nueva Granada administered from Peru until 1718 when it became its own viceroyalty. Spain supplied all commodities and collected all taxes, which became as oppressive as the class system in which only Spaniards could hold office. Indians (mainly in the interior), blacks (only on the coast), mestizos (SpaniardIndian descendants), mulatos (Spaniard-black descendants), zambos (black-Indian descendants), and criollos (all-white descendants of Spaniards) had little or no political or social standing. Ultimately control by the mother country had to weaken as did that of Great Britain in North America. The American Declaration of Independence of 1776 and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man of 1789 did not go unnoticed in Nueva Granada, whose own Act of Independence was proclaimed in Bogotá in 1810, precursor to nine years of complicated regional struggle between small local armies. This movement for independence culminated in the victory of about two thousand 145


patriots over three thousand royalists in the Battle of Boyacá of August 7, 1819, near the town of Tunja between Bogotá and the present-day Venezuelan border. From this date most of “Colombia” became independent, although the provinces of Ecuador and Venezuela were only partially so until Spanish control in Venezuela was eliminated in 1821 (1822 in Ecuador), the same year that Panama became part of the loose federation known as Gran Colombia (Great, or Greater, Colombia). The name Gran Colombia was in regional use, although República de Colombia was the official name as indicated on the obverse of coins of the period. The new nation’s first shield of cornucopias and fasces can also be seen clearly on the reverse of the 8-escudos pieces of both Bogotá and Popayán, 1822-1836, the two traditional mints from colonial times, as gold coins were not minted in Medellín until 1862. Despite the unifying efforts of the heroes of independence like Simón Bolívar and Francisco de Paula Santander, who were respectively proclaimed the Republic’s first President and Vice President by the Congress at the new capital of Bogotá, the attempt at union was destined to fail because of a vast diversity of geographical, regional, and economic interests and jealousies. Venezuela had never really wanted to be a part of the federation and by 1830 seceded, along with Ecuador, leaving Colombia to return to its original name of Nueva Granada, although the coinage continued with the obverse legend of República de Colombia until 1836 in Bogotá and 1838 (8 escudos only) in Popayán. (There were no República de Colombia gold coins of any denomination minted in 1837.) It is interesting to note not only that the legend on the early Republican coinage of Ecuador reads “El Ecuador en Colombia” but also that Venezuelans consider Colombian gold coinage up to the secession in 1830 to be their coinage too. Therefore Colombian gold pesos and escudos dated from 1822 to 1830 should be in more demand than later dates in the same series, a fact hardly reflected in their values. With several Constitutions and much civil war, the República de la Nueva Granada managed to endure only until 1857. Until then, all government had been unitary. Another Constitution in 1858 created a federal republic known as the Confederación Granadina, in which each state for the first time was to govern itself (instead of having its governors appointed from Bogotá) and the nation was to elect its Presidents by direct vote, on the U.S. model. This led only to more civil strife, and in 1863 to Constitutional modifications that, among other things, had changed the name of the nation to Estados Unidos de Colombia (United States of Colombia), an arrangement that lasted only until 1885. The experimentation with a federal government proved unworkable and still another Constitution was adopted in 1886. With modifications in 1910 and 1936, it is this Constitution that remains in force today and has returned the country to its original name at the time of independence—the República de Colombia. Since the beginning of independence the history of Colombia has been one of insurrections and, fundamentally, a struggle between liberals and conservatives. The liberals have always been exponents of federalism and secularism while the conservatives have favored administrative centralization and close ties between Church and State. The liberals were in eclipse at the time of secession of Panama on November 3, 1903, one more political upheaval. A railroad was built across the Isthmus of Panama in 1855, although a canal had been proposed as early as colonial times. In 1878 the Colombian government reached an agreement with a French company to build this canal, whose excavation was begun in 1883. Owing to the ravages of yellow fever on location and financial scandals in France leading to a bankruptcy of the company, the work was left unfinished. Later the United States agreed to complete the canal on terms seemingly favorable to both itself and Colombia, but the treaty was rejected by the Colombian Congress in 1903, whereupon with U.S. backing the Panamanians declared their independence from Colombia. This declaration became a fait accompli when U.S. forces prevented the arrival of Colombian troops. Nevertheless, the canal was built, Panama became a nation, and the United States belatedly awarded an indemnity of twenty-five million dollars to Colombia. Unlike the Venezuelans, seemingly fewer Panamanians collect the gold coinage of Colombia as their own. Perhaps this is because Panama was always somewhat isolated from Colombia and has no tradition of gold coinage, except a few modern non-circulating legal tender pieces, which is why Panama is omitted from the lists in this book. The bloodiest of Colombian insurrections broke out in 1948, the famous Bogotazo (destruction of Bogotá) that left the capital in ruins and a considerable area of the country beyond the control of government for years. This and other events occasioned an unusual experiment in political parity in 1958, the so-called National Front, all the more extraordinary because it worked. Under this system all elective and appointive positions—national, provincial, and municipal—were to be divided equally between the Liberal and Conservative parties. By further amendment in 1959, even the Presidency of Colombia was to be alternated between the two parties every four years until 1974, when the National Front was allowed to expire. Since then, and apart from the 1982-1986 term, a Liberal Presidential candidate has won every election to date [editor’s note: this was written in 1991, and other political parties have held the Presidency since then]. 146


As exceptions to a long history of intermittent dictatorships in South America, only Colombia and Venezuela have somehow managed to retain a continuity of democratic structure in recent times. Despite a record of instability, Colombia especially is a very democratic country, and a very traditional one. Here are some manifestations of this perception. Observe the gold coins. Miss Liberty is portrayed on every nineteenthcentury issue, through all the civil strife and rejected Constitutions. Colombia is the only Latin American nation that has a concordat with the Vatican. Hispanic linguists generally agree that the “best” Spanish spoken in the New World—the most traditional, formal, distinctly pronounced—is that of Bogotá and highland Colombia, a distinction sharply in contrast with the slurred idiom of the coastal areas which linguistically might as well be a separate nation. Bogotá has been called the “Athens of America” with reputedly more bookstores and cultural institutions per capita than those of any other Spanish American metropolis. Educated bogotanos also have a nickname, the “cachacos” (dandies, sports), owing to their courtly ways. The costeños (Colombians of the coastal regions) as well as many other South Americans consider these proud “cachacos” and Colombian highlanders in general to be supercilious and overbearing. The North American or European numismatist may be unimpressed by all of this as he wonders why the Medellín mint could not have produced better dies or the Popayán mint better planchets. The explanation is that despite its cultural reputation Colombia has been and is still an underdeveloped country with economic problems as large as its population, and in a contemporary context, less oil than its neighbors. Until recently Venezuela had been the prodigal son enjoying its wealth of petroleum, of which even tranquil little Ecuador is an exporter. Panama is in a different orbit, a kind of commercial crossroads of the world astraddle the Canal. The historian looks at his map and ponders what manner of nation might have evolved if Gran Colombia had managed to hold together. And the numismatist studies the legends of the coins and comes to understand that there is not one Colombia, but many. Given the current global situation (COVID-19), we felt one more quote from Frank’s book is well worth noting now: When rare coins in high grade come out of hiding, there are always collectors with the knowledge, zeal, and especially the wherewithal to buy them, no matter what the economic conditions of the moment may be. Good luck in your bidding, and enjoy!

854. Medellín, Colombia, 1/2 peso (medio peso), 1868, very rare, PCGS MS62, finest known, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated

on label). Restrepo-292.1; KM-152. Very bold strike with 100% full details, muted luster and traces of toning, a highly sought unique denomi-

nation (“medio peso,” as specified by law) issued in just this year at just this mint (soon replaced by “cinco décimos,” although ironically the MEDIO PESO on this issue is clearly punched over CINCO DECIMOS on the coin) of which only six are known, this being the finest and only Mint State piece graded by PCGS, the only other PCGS example being a notably cruder AU50 (Eldorado specimen), also this type completely unlisted at NGC. For the Colombian specialists, particularly the many avid fans of the “half dollars” of Colombia, this coin is the ultimate trophy. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label), and Plate Coin on page 192 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39227533. Estimate: $15,000-up.

Restrepo-293.2, KM-153.1; c/m: KM-134.2 (on different host). Choice bold countermarks

near top rims of a rather wholesome hostcoin whose strict grade belies its overall attractiveness (arguably F or even VF in our opinion), with light contrasting toning in legends and only light old marks in weaker centers. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39227534. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

856. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1869, PCGS AU details / cleaned. Restrepo-294.2; KM-153.2.

858. Popayán, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1870/69, rare, PCGS 861. Popayán, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1874, re-punched VF20. Restrepo-295.2; KM-unl (153.6 for type). Lightly toned with some dark sediment in crevices, typically slightly weak centers but with all details nevertheless clear and without any problems, technically second finest in PCGS census behind a single VF25 (the overdate not listed at NGC [or in KM] and with only a VF on record there for the clean date). Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39227537. Estimate: $500-$750.

18, fineness 0,835/0,900, rare PCGS VF20, finest known in PCGS census. Restrepo-295.6 var; KM-153.6. Typically weak and uneven

strike and somewhat low in contrast, also with crude rims showing cuds and voids, yet relatively high grade for this type and with clear fineness as 0,835/0,900 as well as date and legend re-punchings that are not listed in Restrepo or KM (label mentions date and UNIDOS), finest for the date at both PCGS and NGC. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39228003. Estimate: $300-$450.

859. Popayán, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1873/69, fineness

0,835/0,900, rare, PCGS VG10. Restrepo-295.4; KM-153.6. Mottled

rainbow toning on smooth surfaces, typically weak centers yet with clear LIBERTAD in hair, parts of rims crude (plus one small dent), overall should be Fine in our estimation. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39227538. Estimate: $500-$750.

862. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1877, Barré head, very rare, PCGS F detail / tooled. Restrepo-297.10; KM-153.5. Bold

Liberty head (Barré design) and date enhanced by contrasting toning, typically crude strike all over (particularly the rims) and with heavy scrape on head, but important to “half dollar” collectors who can appreciate Restrepo’s statement that only five are known (KM says two known). Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39228006. Estimate: $400-$600.

860. Popayán, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1873, fineness 0,835/0,900, rare, PCGS F12. Restrepo-295.5; KM-unl (153.6 for type).

864. Popayán, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1880, very rare, PCGS VF35, finest and only example in PCGS census. Restrepo-295.8; KM-153.6. Much bolder strike and higher grade than most of this type,

with all details full and legends well defined with contrasting toning, crude rims as usual, possibly the finest of just five known (KM says “two known”), of which this is the only one at either PCGS or NGC. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39228005 Estimate: $2,000-$3,000.

159


865. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1886, fineness 0,835, with Costa Rica “lion” double countermark, (Type VII, 1889, 50 centavos), very rare, PCGS AU53, c/m AU detail. Host: Restrepo-298.14; KM-161.1a; c/m: KM-134.2 (on different host).

866. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1886, fineness 0,500, 868. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1886, fineness 0,500, PCGS AU58+, finest known in PCGS census. Restrepo-313.2; KMunl. Lovely light toning over muted luster (probably would rate MS if

the luster were strong), satin-smooth surfaces and choice strike, diecrack between O and L of COLOMBIA, scarce variety with Bogotástyle bust of Liberty. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39228018. Estimate: $150-$225.

867. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1886/4, fineness 0,500/0,835, large 6 in date, PCGS AU55, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label). Restrepo-301.2a; KM-161.2a. Very light gray

toning over muted luster, nice strike, very light high-point wear, clear 6/4 overdate, scarce, tied with one other for finest at PCGS and another at NGC, desirable pedigree. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label), and Plate Coin on page 195 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39228013. Estimate: $100-$150.

very rare, PCGS XF45, Restrepo Plate Coin. Restrepo-304.1; KMunl. Somewhat bright as non-toned, with all details sharp, clean fineness

(not 0,500/0,835, also with different shield), rim below date affected by off-center edge-lettering, numerically second finest in PCGS census behind a single AU53 but the strike on that coin is much cruder (might also be mis-attributed), also with desirable pedigree. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection, and Plate Coin on page 196 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39228016. Estimate: $200-$300.

869. Medellín, Colombia, 1/2 décimo, 1868, PCGS MS64, finest known in PCGS and NGC censuses, ex-Eldorado.

Restrepo-257.1; KM-150.2. Bold strike with choice full details and elegant

luster with incipient toning, the finest and only example in PCGS census with only an MS 61 listed at NGC. Pedigreed to the Eldorado collection (Stacks Bowers auction of August 2018, with original lot-tag #44267). PCGS #85752553. Estimate: $350-$500.

décimo with mirror-image denomination and R on reverse, 1873, reeded edge, PCGS SP63. Restrepo-P23; KM-Pn35. Very darkly toned, no marks or wear, rather subdued luster. PCGS 85760687. Estimate: $300-$450.

160


871. Bogotá, Colombia, 1/2 décimo, 1871, PCGS MS63, finest known in PCGS and NGC censuses.

Restrepo-256.4; KM-150.1. Choice deep strike with high rims on both sides, light rainbow toning over muted luster,

rare grade (none higher, “top pop” at NGC being a pair of MS 62’s). PCGS #83877569. Estimate: $200-$300.

Colombia (Modern Republic) 872. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1887, inverted 5 in fineness, PCGS VF

detail / cleaned. Restrepo-400.1a; KM-165. At least XF in our opinion, with minimal wear but some light surface granularity, incipient blue toning over luster on reverse. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39228021. Estimate: $150-$225.

873. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1887, elongated head, extremely rare,

PCGS F detail / repaired. Restrepo-402.1; KM-unl. Bold details for the grade, with very

bright and somewhat crude surfaces from polishing, so rare that Restrepo states only three are known. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label). PCGS #39227627. Estimate: $100-$150.

874. Bogotá, Colombia, 50 centavos, 1888, “Cocobola” bust, very rare, PCGS VF30, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label). Restrepo-405.2; KM-185. Honest

wear for the grade, very lightly toned, with minor edge-bumps and generally low contrast but all details clear, with desirable pedigree. This coveted second date of the famous two-year “Cocobola” type, featuring a distinctive Liberty bust unauthorizedly modeled after the President’s wife, is almost never seen, as only a few (Restrepo says five known) were issued in 1888 before the striking was halted and recalled. The only other certified example we could positively trace is “details” graded, making the present coin a unique opportunity to acquire a straight-graded example of this popular rarity. We expect a lot of interest from advanced collectors! The nickname “Cocobola” has an interesting origin: The area known as Panama, which after independence became part of Colombia, often found itself in a state of revolt, and one of the worst was in March 1885, when the Colombian general Pedro Prestán led a revolution in the city of Colón against the regime of Colombian president Rafael Núñez, who was working toward a more centralized and authoritarian Colombian nation, culminating in the abrogation of the “Rionegro” Constitution of 1863 and the formation of the new Republic of Colombia in 1886, in no small part due to the influence and machinations of the First Lady, Soledad Román. Prestán’s revolt, ostensibly opposing the involvement of the United States of America in the conflict (the US’s interest being the construction of a canal connecting the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea), employed two Caribbean liberals, the Haitian Antoine Pautricelli and the Jamaican George Davis, to burn down the city of Colón. George Davis, later hanged for this crime, was better known as “Cocobolo.” When the first new half dollars of the Republic of Colombia came out in 1887, using the same unpopular reduced fineness (50% silver) that had been ordered by Núñez in 1885, but also with the portrait of his wife, his opponents took the opportunity to mock the use of Soledad’s portrait on the coins and recall the Panamanian revolt by nicknaming the coins “Cocobola” (feminized version of Cocobolo). Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label), and Plate Coin on page 234 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39227629. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

875. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1888, elongated head, 878. Bogotá, Colombia (struck in Brussels), 20 centavos,

unique, PCGS VF25, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label).

Full details with very light toning and minor bumps and marks on grainy surfaces, unique issue with famously distinct bust displaying shorter hair than the prior “elongated head” type of 1887-8 (Restrepo-402), which is also rare but not to the point of this #401 that Restrepo calls “one known,” that one coin being the present specimen, with no other examples known to us either, clearly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the hardcore “half dollar” collector. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label), and Plate Coin on page 232 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39228022. Estimate: $1,000-$1,500.

Restrepo-401.1; KM-167.

1897, NGC MS 63. Restrepo-385.1; KM-189. Choice luster and minimal marks, one-year type in reduced fineness of 0.666 (despite legal requirement to be 0.835), also a coin that bears the distinction of being both the first and last of this denomination under the current Republic of Colombia. NGC #4739198-006. Estimate: $150-$225.

879. Colombia, copper-nickel pattern 10 centavos, 1900,

NGC MS 63. Restrepo-70 (p. 254); KM-Pn77. Specimen strike with raised rims (plain edge) and smooth fields, hint of toning over muted luster, no marks or wear. NGC #4668515-011. Estimate: $300-$450.

876. Medellín, Colombia, 5 décimos, 1889, “mulatto” bust

with flowers, fineness 0,835, very rare, PCGS XF detail / scratch, Restrepo Plate Coin (stated on label). Restrepo-404.1;

KM-unl. Nice strike with bold full details, toned all over but with dark area to left on reverse, distinctive one-year type with unusual bust and flower-and-six-leaf ornaments in legend on obverse, unique Medellín issue with proper fineness. Restrepo’s theory as to why there was so much variation in design in the Medellín 5 décimos of 1887-9 is that “the engraver was sent to jail and nobody else had a good understanding of die production procedures.” Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada Collection (stated on label), and Plate Coin on page 233 of Restrepo’s Coins of Colombia (2012). PCGS #39227628. Estimate: $250-$375.

880. Colombia (struck at the Philadelphia mint), 5 centavos, 1902, NGC MS 65. Restrepo-365.1; KM-191. One-year type in

0.666 silver, the design engraved by George T. Morgan along with a single Colombian silver 50c issue in the same year, with splashes of toning over luster, no marks or wear. NGC #4770572-014. Estimate: $70-$100.

881. Colombia (struck at the Denver mint), copper-nickel 2 centavos, 1920, NGC MS 63, finest and only example in NGC census. Restrepo-354.3; KM-198. Deeply

rainbow toned all over, with muted luster underlying, no wear, just a couple minor bagmarks. NGC #4770572-013. Estimate: $70-$100.

882. Colombia (struck in Brussels), copper-nickel pattern 5 pesos papel moneda, 1907, rare, NGC MS 66. Restre-

po-90 (p. 255); KM-unl. Choice

strike with bright full luster, die-polish lines in fields, no marks or wear, one of only two in NGC census (the other MS 67). NGC #46685515-006. Estimate: $250-$375.

877. Colombia, 50 centavos, 1963, mint error struck on aluminum-bronze alloy planchet, PCGS MS 67, ex-Eldorado. Restrepo-unl (cf 420.6); KM-unl (cf 217). Bright and highly lustrous in golden

brass color, with no marks or wear at all, a couple hairline die-cracks on obverse, first and only off-metal specimen known to us (regular issue is copper-nickel). Pedigreed to the Eldorado collection (Stack’s Bowers auction of August 2018, with original lot-tag #42334). PCGS #85758104. Estimate: $300-$450.

countermark on neck of George IV, the host with full details for the grade, nicely toned all over with a few darker spots. Note: The 8th edition (2015) of Krause-Mishler’s Standard Catalog of World Coins / 1800s erroneously attributes this countermark to Type VII, unfortunately perpetuated by some auction listings but at least shown correctly at NGC. NGC #5846759-006. Estimate: $125-$200.

903. Costa Rica, 1 real, “lion” countermark (Type VI, 1849-

Ecuador Gold

961. Quito, Ecuador, gold 8 escudos, 1841MV, small size, NGC XF 45. KM-23.2. First year of type in smaller diameter with cruder

bust (much rarer than the previous type for this date), with bold legends but weaker inner details as usual, pleasing overall, particularly desirable as the type of coins famously described by Captain Ahab in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick as “noble golden coins of South America... as medals of the sun and tropic token-pieces. Here palms, alpacas, and volcanoes; sun’s disks and stars, ecliptics, horns of plenty, and rich banners waving, are in luxuriant profusion stamped; so that the precious gold seems almost to derive an added preciousness and enhancing glories, by passing through those fancy mints, so Spanishly poetic. It so chanced that the doubloon of the Pequod was a most wealthy example of these things. On its round border it bore the letters, REPUBLICA DEL ECUADOR: QUITO. So this bright coin came from a country planted in the middle of the world, and beneath the great equator, and named after it; and it had been cast midway up the Andes, in the unwaning clime that knows no autumn. Zoned by those letters you saw the likeness of three Andes’ summits; from one a flame; a tower on another; on the third a crowing cock; while arching over all was a segment of the partitioned zodiac, the signs all marked with their usual cabalistics, and the keystone sun entering the equinoctial point at Libra.” NGC #2292435-001.

grams. Impossible to grade because the fields are all covered in enamel and the struck-up details are all re-engraved (as are the rims), but as a piece of art it is in excellent condition (no chips or cracks) and very well done, the main field colors being a perhaps bothersome juxtaposition of what US southerners might recognize as Duke Blue and Carolina Blue.

This rather presentable and highly pedigreed example shows full details and light luster with just a slight central bulge on reverse and two faint adjustment marks on obverse, currently third finest in the NGC census among eighteen entries that surely represent several re-grades (considering that KM states “4 known”).

Estimate: $1,000-up.

Bold strike, bright white with luster, no wear and minimal marks (fully MS in our eyes). NGC #4770572-028. Estimate: $70-$100.

contrast but only light wear, parts of rims crude (as made), a key date that always commands a premium. NGC #4770572031. Estimate: $400-$600.

Haiti 1113. Haiti, 25 centimes, AN 14 (1817), Petion (small head), NGC MS 63, ex-Rudman.

bolic of Mexico) flanked by assayer and denomination on obverse, cross-lions-castles with legend reading TEGVSIGALPA L’A 1823 on reverse (the date not visible on this example), holed near edge like most, deeply toned. We could find only two other examples that have entered the market in the past decade, despite the recent influx from the Richard Stuart collection, which seems to support KM’s statement of “6-7 known.” NGC #2833732-002. Estimate: $1,000-$1,500.

Honduras (provisional “imitation cobs”) 1117. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional “imitation cob”

2 reales, 1823-PMPY, trefoils above pillars, rare, NGC VF 30. KM-15.1. 6.03 grams. Choice strike with bold full pillars and cross

(the lions facing left and in proper quadrants), with attractive rich toning and very nice for the grade. NGC #2832572-001. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

198


1118. Comayagua, Honduras, provisional “imitation cob” 2 reales,

1824-C(Y), very rare, NGC Fine details / holed, ex-Richard Stuart.

Bold full pillars, off-center cross on a squarish flan, curious design with extra row of nothing above waves and empty quadrants in cross, a few minor marks here and there but nicely toned, inoffensive hole at one end of the cross. Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection (our Auction #22, lot #990), and plated (#48) in Central American Provisional and Provincial Mints (2007), by Carlos Jara. NGC #2832572-003. Estimate: $1,250-$2,000. KM-unl (cf 15.2). 5.67 grams.

1119. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional “imitation cob” 1 real, (1823)PMPY, trefoils above pillars, rare, NGC AU 58. KM-unl. 3.01 grams. Brightly

lustrous and choice in terms of grade but narrow flan that excludes the date, lions facing left and in proper quadrants. NGC #2832572-004. Estimate: $400-$600.

1120. Comayagua, Honduras, provisional “imitation cob” 1/2 real, 1823, very rare, NGC AU 55, ex-Richard Stuart (stated on special label). KM-unl; Jara p. 100-101. 1.24 grams.

Boldly struck with full monogram and nearly full date, off-center cross, nice toning over strong mint bloom, with just a touch of high-point rubbing in evidence, choice grade, much rarer than other imitation 1/2R types (note our previous auction showed the wrong NGC number, but the current NGC label has the wrong weight). Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection and our Auction #22 (lot #995). NGC #4486426-002. Estimate: $900-$1,350.

Honduras (Central American Republic) 1121. Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central American Republic), 2 reales, 1825NR, rare, NGC VF 25. KM-10 (under Central

Bold legends, some central weakness and crude rims from off-center strike, but with very light even toning over traces of luster and with no particularly offensive wear or marks, a 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 sun-over-mountains on obverse and small ceiba tree on reverse, the legends specifically referring to the Central American Republic and showing the fineness as 11 dineros, 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 lower-than-indicated actual fineness, made them unpopular, and they were soon outlawed by decree of May 7, 1825. As a result, these issues (2R and 1R)are both very scarce to extremely rare. NGC #2833729-002. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

Honduras (State of Honduras) 1122. Honduras, copper-lead alloy 8 reales, 1858FL, legend with HOND, NGC VF 20 Brown, ex-Holsen (stated on label).

Thick and heavy flan with crude strike as usual (particularly the legends, over half of which are too weak to see), yet with all inner details clear, dark toning over chocolate-brown surfaces all over, nearly non-existent in higher grade. Pedigreed to the Holsen collection. NGC #4770572-005. Estimate: $200-$300. KM-21a. 26.42 grams.

199


1123. Honduras, copper/lead 8 reales, 1858FL, legend with HOND, NGC Fine details / environmental damage. KM-21a. 15.83

grams. Good strike for the issue with full legends and inner details, a few old

scratches and perhaps some graininess but mostly expected for this type, this example almost black from toning. NGC #4770572-004. Estimate: $150-$225.

1124. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-silver) 4 reales, 1850G, nar-

row date variety, NGC VF 30, ex-O’Brien. KM-20. Choice dark details contrasted by pewter-colored fields, all legends and leaves of tree particularly well defined, with typical area of weakness above date but overall quite attractive for the type and grade. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-018. Estimate: $200-$300.

1125. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-silver) 4 reales, 1851G, NGC VF 35, ex-O’Brien. KM-20a. Broad flan with full and bold details (dark) contrasted with pewter-colored fields, no marks, just honest even wear. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-019. Estimate: $150-$225.

1126. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-silver) 4 reales, 1852G, NGC

1127. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional

(low-silver) 2 reales, 1833F, NGC VF 25, ex-O’Brien. KM-19. Slightly off-center strike, low contrast but not overly dark (as from relatively “good” silver of 33.3% fineness), uneven toning. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-012. Estimate: $200-$300.

1128. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-silver) 2 reales, 1839F, NGC VF details / planchet flaw, ex-Stuart, ex-O’Brien. KM-19. Broad flan with good rims and full details but typically low in contrast (33.3% silver), curiously with small natural lacuna near center. Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection, and to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-013. Estimate: $200-$300.

200


1129. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (lowsilver) 2 reales, 1844F, CREZCA variety, NGC AU details / cleaned, ex-O’Brien. KM-19a. Sharp details

(the leaves somewhat flat), with lots of luster on silvery fields, light rosy copper color on high points (a bit bright, but arguably not egregious enough to call “cleaned”), scarce assayer. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-014. Estimate: $400-$600.

1130. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (lowsilver) 2 reales, 1844G, CREZCA variety, NGC XF 40, ex-O’Brien. KM-19a. Good strike with full details,

1131. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (lowsilver) 2 reales, 1845G, NGC AU 53, ex-O’Brien.

KM-19a. Choice grade (tied with one other for finest known

in the NGC census) with minimal high-point wear and lovely contrast between the pewter-colored fields and dark details (especially the mountains), deep hairline edge-crack. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-016. Estimate: $200-$300.

1132. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-

silver) 2 reales, 1848G, CREZCA variety, NGC VF details / environmental damage, ex-O’Brien. KM-

19b. Full details with traces of silver color on fields, surface

porosity all over. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). Estimate: $100-$150.

201


1133. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, (very low-silver) 2

reales, 1852G, rare. KM-19d. 5.30 grams. Good central details but very crude rims (as made) and with no silvering on fields, just dark copper color all over, AVF for actual wear. Estimate: $200-$300.

1134. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-silver) 1 real, 1832F, NGC VF 30, finest known in NGC census, ex-O’Brien.

KM-18. Good details in low contrast (“good” silver of 33.3% fineness) but with some luster on fields, leaves a bit weak and that side with some old scratches, hairline edge-crack. Pedigreed to the John O’Brien collection (stated on label). NGC #4771567-009. Estimate: $200-$300.

1135. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, provisional (low-silver) 1 real,

1839F, PROVICIONAL error, NGC XF 45, finest and only example in NGC census, ex-O’Brien. KM-18. Mostly bold strike

Honduras (Republic)

1138. Honduras (Tegucigalpa mint), gold 1 peso, 1895,

rare, NGC AU 58. KM-56. Good luster, slightly crude strike, scarce

and desirable type, with a reported mintage of only 43 pieces for this date. NGC #28337732-009. Estimate: $600-$900.

1140. Honduras (struck at the Philadelphia mint), pattern 5 pesos struck in copper-nickel, (1871), reeded edge, very rare, NGC MS 63, finest known in NGC census. KM-unl. Lustrous and

choice, with just a couple small spots of golden tone on reverse, both sides displaying dramatic die-polish lines on fields, currently the better of just two examples at NGC (and none at PCGS) for this metal, possibly the only two known at all, struck without date for an 1871 gold series that never came to fruition. This pattern and the next four proof lots were struck at the Philadelphia mint using dies engraved by assistant engraver William H. Key. The silver business strikes that followed these patterns were struck in Honduras, but not until 1879-80, due to regional conflict. NGC #2833732-001. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

1141. Honduras (struck at the Philadelphia mint), proof pattern 50 centavos struck in silver, 1871, plain edge, very rare, NGC PF 63, ex-Richard Stuart (stated on special label).

1139. Denomination set of four Honduras (struck in Lon-

KM-unl (cf Pn16). Lustrous specimen strike with near-mirror fields, several small splashes of golden toning, one of just two known in silver (the other PF 64), the KM listings (none as proof ) showing only copper and nickel. Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection. NGC #4427714014. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

don, England), bronze provisional patterns of 1862, rosettes variety, all NGC: 8 pesos MS 63 RB; 4 pesos MS 62 RB; 2 pesos MS 63 RB; 1 peso MS 62 RB. KM-Pn4, 3, 2, 1. Scarce Mint

State set, each piece made in enough quantities to be collectible but much tougher to find together, especially so nicely matched with identical original color and luster (none with more than trivial marks or stains), the 2P in fact finest in NGC census (the others close), the four pieces kept together for at least forty years and possibly since striking. NGC #2833847-007, -006, -005 and -004. Estimate: $2,000-$3,000.

1142. Honduras (struck at the Philadelphia mint), proof pattern 25 centavos struck in copper, 1871, plain edge, rare, NGC PF 63 BN. KM-unl (cf Pn15). Vivid

peacock toning over luster, with blue, magenta and golden colors on obverse and orange to deep purple on reverse, virtually wear- and mark-free surfaces (second only to a single PF 64 at NGC), a lovely specimen striking with incomparable eye-appeal, unlisted as a proof in KM. NGC #2833732-005. Estimate: $500-$750.

1143. Honduras (struck at the Philadelphia mint), proof pattern 10 centavos struck in silver, 1871, plain edge, rare, NGC PF 61. KM-unl (cf Pn14). Steely blue toning on lustrous fields with minor bagmarks, rare unlisted specimen strike in silver (also as a plain-edge proof ), second finest in NGC census behind a single PF 63. NGC #2833732-003. Estimate: $600-$900.

1146. Honduras, 50 centavos, 1879, Lovett type, rare, NGC

VF 20. KM-44. Attractive toning with rainbow colors at rims, some wear and marks but mostly just weakly struck in centers, as expected for this one-year type supposedly engraved by US medal-engraver George Hampden Lovett. NGC #2833847-014. Estimate: $350-$500.

1144. Honduras (struck at the Philadelphia mint), proof pattern 5 centavos struck in copper, 1871, plain edge, rare, NGC PF 65 BN, ex-Byrne. KM-unl (cf Pn13). Exceptionally lustrous

for copper, with vivid blue color on obverse and magenta on reverse, unlisted as a proof in KM but this example clearly more mirrored than a normal specimen strike, desirable pedigree. Pedigreed to the Ray Byrne collection. NGC #2833729-003. Estimate: $500-$750.

1147. Honduras, 50 centavos, 1885, coin axis, JL on flags at top, NGC MS 60. KM-51. Nicely lustrous (no toning) and nearly

devoid of marks, no wear but typical weak strike on high points and a few inevitable die-cracks, second finest in NGC census behind a single MS 62, uncataloged variety with raised letters J and L on the narrow flags at the top on reverse. NGC #4770572-008. Estimate: $175-$250.

1145. Honduras, 1 peso, 1894/92 (open 4), NGC MS 61,

finest known in NGC census. KM-62. Lustrous and choice for the series, with bagmarks but no demonstrable wear, incipient toning at rims, bold overdate that is unlisted in KM and presumably rare, finest of just two at NGC by six grades. The related overdate of 1894/82 is also known, both issues actually a muling with 1882 dies, but the penultimate digit on the present example is quite clearly 9/9 and not 9/8. NGC #2833847-015. Estimate: $300-$450.

1148. Honduras, 25 centavos, 1885, coin axis, JL on flags at top, NGC MS 61. KM-50. Decent luster and lack of marks and

wear but high points weak as usual, large die-crack at 9-10 o’clock on reverse, second highest grade in NGC census, uncataloged variety with raised letters J and L on the narrow flags at the top on reverse. NGC #4770572-007. Estimate: $125-$200.

204


1149. Honduras, bronze 1 centavo, 1880, NGC VF 30 Brown, ex-Whittier. KM-40. Bold but crude strike, especially the rims and penultimate digit of the date (a large 8 to cover the fact that it was recut from an 1878 die), the details enhanced by contrasting toning, second highest grade in NGC census. Pedigreed to the Whittier collection. NGC #4770572-006. Estimate: $250-$375. 1150. Honduras, bronze 1 centavo, 1903/2/0, plain edge. KM-46. 3.41 grams. Very dark VF or better for the type with areas of slight encrustation, weak strike toward rims, centers relatively strong with clear date (scarce thus) that can only be described as a mess of jumbled numbers due to constant re-cutting of the die. Interestingly, NGC shows only one entry for this date (with the specifier “multiple overdates”), and that entry is at the VF level. Estimate: $200-$300. 1151. Honduras, bronze 1 centavo, 1910, modified 5c obverse and reverse dies, NGC MS 63 BN. KM-67. Off-center

obverse with two cuds (one large, one small), traces of original color and luster but otherwise brown, technically near-pristine (tied with one other for second finest in NGC census behind a single MS 64) but slightly crude as usual, including the erasure of denomination 5 (with 1 over-punched) above CENTs, below which is an upside-down 1. NGC #4770572-010. Estimate: $100-$150.

1152. Honduras, copper 1/2 centavo, 1886, coin alignment, NGC MS 61 BN. KM-45. Bold strike with nice details, even light-brown color all over, no wear or marks, traces of die-clashing on obverse, tied with one other for finest known in NGC census. NGC #4770572-009. Estimate: $200-$300.

India (Mughal Empire)

1153. India (Mughal Empire), gold mohur, (1738), NGC MS 65, finest known in NGC census. KM-438.2. Very bold and well-centered strike with slight traces of encrustation here and there, choice grade (the better of just two at NGC, the other just MS 61). NGC #4789894-009. Estimate: $1,000-$1,500.

India (British)

1154. Lahore, India (British), original proof rupee in nickel, George VI, 1947, no mintmark, extremely rare (two known),

PCGS PR63, finest and only example in PCGS census. S&W-9.40a. Final rupee coin of the British era, this original proof from the Lahore mint being one of only two known, the other certified by NGC as PF 63 and sold at Baldwin’s in May 2013 with the description “totally unlisted as a proof of any sort.” Note that PCGS created the suffix “a” for this S&W number in consultation with the authors just for this (unpublished) issue, as their reference was released a year before the Baldwin’s sale in which the discovery piece came to light. As S&W points out, the minting of a new nickel rupee was announced on May 24, 1947. Curiously, S&W shows a picture of one of two known original sets of nickel proof sets (Bombay mint, dated 1946) displaying a red U-shaped magnet to demonstrate that the coins are magnetic (the nickel composition necessitated by wartime silver and copper shortage). The present lot dated 1947 from the Lahore mint, distinguishable from Bombay by lacking the triangular mintmark below the date, exhibits good luster for the metal, with only one tiny mark in the wide-open fields displaying strong die-polish lines befitting of a specimen. Clearly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Indian specialist. With original His Majesty’s Mint paper envelope. PCGS #38543715. Estimate: $3,500-up.

205


1155. Calcutta, India (British), copper-nickel original proof 2 annas, George VI, 1947, very rare, PCGS PR64, finest and

only example in PCGS census. S&W-9.140. With diagonal streaks of golden toning over muted luster, no marks or wear, tied for finest known with one at same grade at NGC (three lower). With original His Majesty’s Mint paper envelope. PCGS #38543716. Estimate: $1,000-$1,500.

1156. Calcutta, India (British), copper-nickel origi-

nal proof 1 anna, George VI, 1947, short trefoils in crown, very rare, PCGS PR64. S&W-9.189. Diagonal

Venezuela (royalist)

1251. Maracaibo, Venezuela (under Spain), 1 real, Ferdinand VII, (1813?), very rare, NGC F 15. Cal-598; KM-4.1 (under Santo

Domingo). 2.59 grams. This

crude and very elusive royalist type—the first we have handled—is under debate, as many references place it under Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) while many experts claim it was made in Maracaibo (Venezuela), the support for the latter being the fact that it is so similar to known copper 1-real coins with a large M on the reverse, not to mention that the lizard-like lions match those on copper 1/4 and 1/2 (2/4) reals of Maracaibo as well (all attributed to a documented date of 1813). There are also known 2 reales with bust and shield like the present coin that should be attributed to Maracaibo as well. In contrast, the known Santo Domingo 1/4-real issues of the same period show a totally different design with crowned F7 (no bust) on obverse and SD either above or bisected by a vertical 1/4 on reverse. Notably, Estrella himself in his landmark book Monedas dominicanas (1979) expresses explicit doubt that this series is Santo Domingo in an extended footnote on pp. 132-5. In any case, this example shows a full but worn bust between bold but double-struck F and 7 on obverse, full crowned shield with lions and castles in proper quadrants between full denomination 1-R on reverse, contrasting toning around details and somewhat golden-green color all over. NGC #4837212-005 (as Santo Domingo). Estimate: $2,000-up.

222


Venezuela (“imitation cobs”) 1252. Caracas, Venezuela, “imitation cob” 2 reales, date “471” (early 1800s), quadrants

of cross transposed, NGC AU 50, finest known in NGC census. Cal-749; KM-C13.1. 5.43 grams.

Lightly toned over muted luster, with bold full details including 471 “date,” two denominations (2) and “assayers” (M), three “mintmarks” (L), definitely one of the rarer “dates” for this series and a topgrade example as well. NGC #4771447-004. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

1253. Maracaibo, Venezuela, “imitation cob” 2 reales, date “38” (1813-14), very rare, NGC AU 55, Gibbs Plate Coin. Cal-

Type 202; KM-4. 2.96 grams. Like lot 1251 above (Maracaibo royalist 1R) the attribution of this “imitation cob” 2R to Maracaibo is under debate

but defensible based on the lizard-like lions in the cross. (It is worth noting that the “PMPY” imitation cobs of Honduras have similar lions and castles, and the “pine tree” tops on their pillars are similar to this issue as well.) This is a high-grade example, deeply toned over luster, with choice full cross but off-center pillars, the latter nevertheless showing bold details including 3 at top left and 2 at top right (the norm), SP-8VL-87 across middle (not the norm) and just the tops of the middle and right compartments at bottom, which appear to be the “date” 38 (probably somehow referring to 1813) and the letter P, a unique variety in any case, and with a desirable pedigree. Plate Coin #732A in the auction of the Howard D. Gibbs collection (Schulman New York, March 1966). NGC #5846728-011. Estimate: $500-$750.

Venezuela (United States of Venezuela)

1254. Venezuela, gold (100 bolívares), 1886, NGC AU 58. 1255. Venezuela, (5 bolívares), 1936, normal date, NGC

KM-Y34. Lustrous fields with splashes of deep purplish toning (very pretty), minor marks and very light high-point wear. While not specified on the label, this is the die-variety with last two digits of date widely spaced compared to the first two. NGC #4739431-011. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

MS 64. KM-Y24.2. Frosty and lustrous, beginning to tone on obverse, with just a few tiny bagmarks (including one in front of the nose) but still near top grade for the type. NGC #2760482-002. Estimate: $150-$225.

Chile (Republic) 1267. Chile, silver star military decoration, 1820, libera-

tion of Valdivia, very rare, ex-J. Coolidge Hills, ex-ANS.

Small six-point star inside round wreath, obverse with Valdivian fortress in center of legend LA PAT. A LOS HEROY. RESTAURS. DE VALDA.(cinquefoil), reverse with EL / DIA 3-FEBO. / DE / 1820. Darkly toned VF with no big problems, nicely pedigreed. Best we can tell, this medal is what Ross & Stahl were referring to on page 182 of From a Thankful Nation (2014), without photo or description, just entitled “La Medalla por la Batalla de Valdivia,” with the following historical note: “Although the royalist defeats at Chacabuco and Maipu effectively ended Spanish rule in Chile, more than a dozen significant battles and skirmishes were fought on Chilean soil. The most important of these was the capture of the key Spanish stronghold of Valdivia in February 1820 following a three-day siege by Chilean forces under the command of Lord Cochrane.” We cannot find any other instances of this rare medal being sold, and the fact that it is not pictured or even described in Ross & Stahl emphasizes this rarity. The J. Coolidge Hills bequest that brought this piece to the ANS in 1967 greatly expanded their collection of pan-American military decorations. Pedigreed to the J. Coolidge Hills collection and to the American Numismatic Society archives and subsequent sale through Morton and Eden in April 2007, lot #383. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000. Ross & Stahl-Ch4(?). 5.93 grams, 26mm.

KESSLER at bottom rim; reverse with nine-line inscription of supporters of the Commander General. XF with traces of luster but lots of marks and nicks as expected for a softer metal. This medal must be very scarce, as we cannot find any other examples sold at auction. Don Carlos was a military leader during the First Carlist War in Spain (1833-39) and later distinguished himself not only as the governor of eastern Cuba but subsequently as governor of Santo Domingo in 1863-4 before returning to Spain.

of Pichincha / Liberation of Quito (1822), very rare, ex-J. Sanford Saltus, ex-ANS. Fonrobert-8333. 8.37 grams,

29x25mm. Obverse with A / LOS LIBER / TADORES / DE / QUITO . on capped shield inside flags and cornucopiae below sunburst below EL PERU within wreath, EN PI- CHINCHA on ribbon at bottom; reverse with circular chain at top containing radiant sunface and legend LA PATRIA AGRADECIDA (rest of reverse blank); holed at top with two jump-rings. Lustrous UNC with trivial marks on reverse only, an exceptional grade for this highly desirable medal from the dawn of Ecuadorian Independence from Spain (as part of Peru), also with important pedigree. In the Battle of Pichincha, which took place on May 24,1822, on the slopes of the Pichincha volcano next to the city of Quito, General Antonio JosĂŠ de Sucre and his army defeated Spanish Royalist forces to liberate Quito and what would eventually become the Republic of Ecuador. The pedigree of this piece is also worth of note, as J. Sanford Saltus was one of the most important ANS leaders and benefactors (an award in his name has been given periodically since 1913 to sculptors for Outstanding Achievement in the Art of the Medal) and an avid collector throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s. Pedigreed to the J. Sanford Saltus collection and to the American Numismatic Society archives and subsequent sale through Morton and Eden in April 2007, lot #416. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

Mexico

1291. Mexico, gold cross military decoration, 1821, Cross of Tepeaca Second Class, with original suspension and ribbon, extremely rare, ex-J. Coolidge Hills, ex-ANS (plated on cover), Olvera Plate. Ross & Stahl-Mx1; Grove-

D5. 21.34 grams, 41mm. White enameled cross patonce with bare wreath between arms around central medallion as follows: obverse with Church and Convent of San Francisco surrounded with dark blue enamel inside raised ring enameled white except for legend SE DISTINGIO EN TEPEACA; reverse enameled white with black-enamel date in three lines as 20 21 Y 22 / DE ABRIL / DE 1821. All below suspension bar with similarly enameled legend MERECIO B[IEN DE LA] PATRIA below a gold eagle-and-snake suspension, with portion of original gray-green-red ribbon. Some enamel chipped away from middle of suspension bar but otherwise in excellent condition. Described in the Morton and Eden auction as “of the highest rarity,” this decoration is extremely important as instituted by Emperor Iturbide in May 1822 to recognize distinguished military service in defense of Tepeaca under General Herrera (who eventually abandoned the city) during the War for Mexican Independence. According to both the Ross & Stahl reference and the Olvera reference in which this piece is plated (see pedigree), there were three classes of Tepeaca cross decorations ordered, First-Second-Third, corresponding to rank (the present Second-Class decoration intended for junior officers), each with its own wording. Grove points out in Medals of Mexico (Vol. III, 1974) that further specifications were up to the manufacturing jewelers, allowing for different designs. A choice piece for the ultimate collector of Mexican military history. Pedigreed to the J. Coolidge Hills collection and to the American Numismatic Society archives (Morton and Eden auction of April 2007, lot #458, plated on the back cover of the catalog), also plated on page 65 of David A.

point star enameled white with central medallion enameled red except for central raised flower, all below eagle-and-snake suspension below green-enameled bar that says 9o DIVISION, the original green-whitered ribbon with original fastening brad on back. Another significant military award from the Mexican War for Independence, this one given to officers and enlisted soldiers of the Ninth Division of the Army of the Three Guarantees for successful defense of Córdova in Veracruz on May 16-21, 1821, under the same General Herrera as for Tepeaca (see previous lot). Overall good condition, with only minor wear and chips to enamel, the colors still bright. Pedigreed to the American Numismatic Society archives (Morton and Eden auction of April 2007, lot #459). Estimate: $5,000-$7,500.

The very beginnings of Colombian paper money include this limited issue that circulated in Santa Cruz de Mompox in 1813. Though most citizens preferred gold and silver coins in transactions, the signatures of the city’s public officials (Vicente Celedonio Gutiérrez de Piñerez, Don Ramón Miguel de Enjo, and Rafael Gómez) gave people some degree of confidence in the note. In an article entitled “Los Primeros Billetes de un Estado Independiente en Nueva Granada” published this year, Andrés Cortázar notes that despite not having legal backing to issue such notes, these one real notes were successfully introduced by the Mompox officials. VF with some pieces missing along the edges and a few small holes in the center, though the sparse design remains fully visible and very bold, tape residue along the left side, ink spot in center.

Moderately circulated with some small holes and rust stains (the latter mentioned on the PMG label), bold director signatures on the front as well as a penned annotation on the reverse, very rare and missing in most major Colombian paper money collections, as the present note is one of just two known surviving examples, thus a key note for the private banco collector.

1339. Río Hacha, Colombia, Banco de Río Hacha, 1 peso specimen, 188X (1885), series B, PMG Choice AU 58 EPQ.

SCWPM-S818s; CHPM-7546. Three POCs. Unlike other examples dated to January 1, 1883 that have appeared on the market (such as the several proof and specimen notes in the Eldorado collection), this rarity has blank spaces for the issuance date. Parra notes there are two print runs for this denomination: one in 1883 which had the fully printed date of 1o de Enero de 1883 and another in 1885 with blank spaces for the date that were to be written in upon issuance. No issued examples are known for the second print run in 1885, leaving this specimen form as the only way to acquire both types of pesos from the Banco de Río Hacha. Strong ink colors and original paper quality with light handling in the bottom left corner for the grade, margins a bit uneven but full. PMG #8070918-007. Estimate: $1,000-$1,500.

11707. Sharp design and bold red ink on a locally printed, high value note. Its rarity cannot be overstated; it is not listed in the Standard Catalog, there are no recent auction appearances of this type, and this note is one of only two surviving examples known to Colombian paper money experts today. The PMG label notes mounting remnants, two small holes and some small rust spots; the left signature also shows some minor ink erosion. PMG #8071186-004. Estimate: $7,000-up.

1342. Cartagena, Colombia, Estado Soberano de Bolívar, 1 peso, 15-4-1883, serial 7350, PMG AU 53, very rare. SCWPMS114; CHPM-11705.2. Like the prior lot, this denomination is very rare in any condition, especially in this high grade. Vivid blue ink and good paper quality with only faint paper toning, very light mounting remnants noted by PMG, purple cancellation stamp and ink annotation across the front. PMG #8071186-005. Estimate: $5,000-up.

244


1343. Medellín, Colombia, Restrepos y Compañía, specimen 1 peso, 18XX (1874), PMG AU 50, very rare. SCWPM-S900Cp; CHPM-14771. Restrepos

y Compañía was established in 1854 and conducted business in Medellín until 1915. The printer’s pencil annotation on this proof shows Perkins, Bacon & Co. of London began production of notes for the company around November of 1874; issued notes were released into circulation in the early 1880s. Great paper quality and color with light toning and handling along the right margin, some thins on the reverse from mounting removal (as noted on the label), beautiful vignette in the center of an allegorical female figure representing commerce. This note is one of two known for the denomination overall and the only specimen example for the type; a spectacular opportunity for the Colombian bank note collector. PMG #8071186-002. Estimate: $3,000-up.

Costa Rica

1344. Costa Rica, Banco Central, 5 colones, 21-10-1959,

Extremely rare as an issued example and a key rarity of early Costa Rican paper money; in Historia de los Billetes de Costa Rica, Astua writes that only a dozen examples are known today. The Standard Catalog notes its existence but leaves it unpriced at any level. This well-circulated survivor has a RETIRADO punch hole cancellation across the face and a registration overprint on the reverse; the upper left corner is removed, and ink colors are somewhat faded but still visible with clear serial number and signatures. PMG #8068332-001. Estimate: $2,000-$3,000.

1345. Costa Rica, Banco Central, 1000 colones, 2009, series A, serial A000000014, very low serial number, PMG Superb Gem UNC 67 EPQ. SCWPM-274a. Colorful, well centered polymer note with a very low serial number 14. PMG #8068332-004. Estimate: $200-$300.

SCWPM-123e. A massive fin is seen on this modern Cuban note, created

when the uncut sheet was folded over itself during production and then cut. The resulting extra paper shows part of another note as well as printer guidelines and color test marks. Some light handling is seen near the fold over, which perhaps accounts for the conservative grade. PCGS #80760555. Estimate: $200-$300.

specimen, 1-10-1915, series E. SCWPM-S202s. Four POCs.

lot along with the following two lots) was established in 1878 by Colombian investors to support Guatemalan coffee producers. This finely designed series of bank notes was made by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co. A vignette of an armored ancient figure stands at left holding a Phrygian cap atop a pole while the central vignette of a coffee plantation is flanked by the arms of Guatemala and Colombia, symbolizing the bank’s connection between the two countries; the underprint is pale orange. Good ink colors and paper color despite a good deal of circulation with a 5/8” split at the top center, a few small internal splits, and light soiling.

exceedingly difficult to find an issued example in any grade. Of the four graded by PMG, this note is tied with one other in Fine 12 while a single note is higher at Fine 15.

Broad flan with good full pillars-and-waves and cross-lions-castles, well centered and not doubled, second date peeking out around the top-left prong, the coin overall a bit worn (VF) and of course polished, but the mounting itself fabulous as usual, with very large bail (to hold a massive chain).
