WORLD BANKNOTES

FOREWORD It looks like we have produced another massive catalogue, sorry! In fact, the October programme is very busy once again. We are offering the outstanding David Saul collection of Bermuda, two exceptional catalogues featuring the ‘Banknotes of Africa, the Lumumba collection’ from Ibrahim Salem’ and to cap it all off, more than 2000 lots from everywhere else in this general sale. We have a lovely selection of notes from the late John Glynn, one of the ‘originals’ of the IBNS. To use a much overworked phrase (by me), it is a true collector’s collection. There will be a further group from the Glynn collection in our December sale. We have excellent groups of Egypt, South Africa and India which should attract significant interest, as well as the Alan Cole collection of Romania, a much underrated series. There is a magnificent group of archive material including some lovely South American items, which is a departure for us from the usual suspects. As ever, we have interesting Middle East and Far East, although we will be keeping the choicest China and Hong Kong notes for our annual Hong Kong auction in January 2014. There are some individual highlights I would like to draw your attention to. There are two gorgeous East African Currency Board specimens from 1920, the colours of which almost defy belief. An almost uncirculated pair of consecutive Indian 2 rupee/8 annas really should interest any serious collector of India. Any Commonwealth collectors need to take a look at the Falklands 5 shilling and £1 from the turn of the last century - extremely rare notes, and both serial number A/1 000001! In the Egypt section we have a charming 50 piastres of 1899, and in the John Glynn collection are most interesting groups of Danzig, Poland, United States and Military currency of all kinds. I seem to have spent the year cataloguing, although it doesn’t seem so long ago I had to fight to get a few notes included in a coin sale. Notes were never treated that seriously 30 years ago (yes I have been here that long), but how things have changed. I would like to think that the Spink catalogues have helped expand this great hobby. Enjoy the catalogue and hopefully one or two notes will catch your imagination and pocket! Good luck, Barnaby and Andrew. A Note on References: In addition to the usual Pick numbers, we have used The Banknote Book by Owen Linzmayer as our primary source where possible.

October 2 & 3, 2013 - LONDON

JOHN GLYNN John joined the International Bank Note Society (IBNS) in 1962 not long after it was created and went to become a stalwart of the society over the next 50 years. John was influential behind the scenes within the society as well as holding numerous positions within the organisation, including librarian, assistant treasurer, director and first vice president. His contribution was recognised in 2011 by the society. John was particularly interested in the Baltic States and Russia, and in prisoners of war, which led to a number of his articles being published in a variety of journals. Like most Americans, he was interested in his heritage which led him - and his love of bank notes - in the direction of the United States & Ireland. It is with some regret that John wasn’t able to pass on his passion to either of his two daughters and therefore upon his passing, the collection that he had taken over 50 years to lovingly compile, would be put in the hands of Spink & Son for other likeminded collectors to continue the story that each individual note carries.

Please Note: All lots in the John Glynn collection are located throughout the sale due to their diverse nature, and are denoted by red lot numbers.

‘Ideal Figures’ Essays

x863 Bank of Israel ‘Ideal figures’ series, a hand executed essay on board for a  lira, 1958, serial number 251173, green and white, female soldier at left with pastoral background almost identical to the adopted design (1959), signature of Nebenzahl low right (Pick 29 for similar, Arkin page 81 for similar), this whole series was conceived due to public dissatisfaction with the ‘landscape’ issues of 1955. The project was overseen by the archaeologist Yigael Yadin with the idea being to place archaeological sites on the reverses and images of the new State of Israel on the obverse. Arkin writes ‘Old versus new’ as the theme behind the proposed new issue of currency. The designers were Gaabriel Shamir, Maxim Shamir and Jacob Zim. The photographer Rudi Wissenstein was commissioned to take photographs of ‘modern Israelis’ to best epitomise the new State of Israel. These photographs would then form the template for the new designs.The proofs offered here bear the manuscript signature of one of the designers ‘Maxim Shamir’ and were purchased many decades ago from the family of Maxim Shamir. Unique and a tangible reminder of the creation of this iconic series. £1,500-1,800
