The January 2012 Collector’s Series Sale

Terms and Conditions of Sale This is a public auction and mail-bid sale held by SPINK, who are licensed and bonded auctioneers. SPINK may not withdraw any lot after a call for bids has been made with respect to that lot, however, the consignor of the property included in the lot (or any other lot) may bid on and purchase the lot for his/her own account. If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. 1. 2.






The placing of a bid constitutes full acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale by the bidder. The highest bidder acknowledged by SPINK shall be the buyer. In the event of any dispute between bidders, SPINK may, at its sole discretion, immediately put the lot up for sale again. SPINK’S decision shall be final and binding upon all bidders. A buyer’s premium equal to 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $2,000.00 and 15% of the excess bid price will be added to each invoice and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. All bids are to be per lot as numbered in this catalog. SPINK reserves the right to group two or more lots together and to withdraw, prior to call for bids, any lot(s) from the sale. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only, and SPINK reserves the right to reject any bid or advance the bidding at its discretion. SPINK may not withdraw any lot after a call for bids has been made with respect to that lot, however, the consignor of the property included in the lot (or any other lot) may bid on and purchase the lot for his/her own account. If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. SPINK may have made advances and loans available to certain consignors and bidders in the sale. SPINK reserves the right to bid on any lot in the sale. Additionally, SPINK may or may not have financial interest in any of the lot(s) in the sale. All sales are strictly for cash, check and bank/wire transfer in United States dollars; however, SPINK will only accept cash payments under $10,000.00. SPINK offers clients the option of paying by credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover only) in United States Dollars for a convenience charge of two percent (2%) up to a total of $20,000.00. Credit card payments will only be accepted if (a) the purchase is made by the card holder, (b) any purchased items to be shipped are shipped to the cardholder’s verified billing address, (c) floor bidders present their credit cards and (d) all returns are governed by the terms and conditions of the sale. Payment is due and payable immediately upon receipt of the auction invoice or, if payment is to be made at the auction site, simultaneously with receipt of the purchased items. SPINK reserves the right to void a sale if payment in full of the invoice is not received by SPINK within fifteen (15) days of the date of invoice. A late charge in the amount of the lesser of 18% per annum and the maximum lawful rate will be charged on the invoice total if payment is not received within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice. All lots are subject to applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate resale certificates are on file with SPINK. Shipping, handling and administration charges will be added to invoices for lots delivered by mail. All lots will be shipped via U.S. Express Mail to Post Office boxes, via Federal Express to street addresses, and FedEx ground for bulky large lots (in the U.S. only). Purchases shipped via FedEx will not




11. 12.


be covered by SPINK insurance in the event that the buyer has placed a “signature release” on file with FedEx. Buyer will be responsible for total purchase price in the event of loss. SPINK cannot be and is not responsible for the loss of any merchandise shipped outside the United States and therefore insurance on any items to be shipped outside the United States is solely the responsibility of the buyer. It is also the responsibility of the buyer to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they are in his/her possession. Risk of loss shall be borne by the buyer following shipment of the items and SPINK assumes no liability for merchandise lost, stolen or damaged while in the possession of a party to whom merchandise has been shipped. For international shipments, all duties/taxes/fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. In the event a successful bidder fails to pay the charges due, SPINK reserves the right to resell the merchandise and the buyer agrees to pay for the reasonable cost of such a sale including a 10% seller’s commission, and also to pay any difference between the resale price and the winning price of his/her previously successful bid. SPINK reserves the right to require payment in full before delivery of the merchandise to the buyer. Bidder personally guarantees payment, and if a corporation, an officer or principal in the corporation agrees to personally guarantee payment. Title to any purchased items remains with SPINK until all invoices are paid in full. SPINK reserves the right to await clearance of any check used for payment before delivery of any item and a $25.00 charge will be applied for any check that fails to clear. SPINK reserves the right to refuse to honor or reject any bid which, in its opinion, is not submitted in good faith, or, as the case dictates, is not supported by satisfactory references, as SPINK in its sole discretion shall determine. SPINK further reserves the right to ban any bidder from participation in its sales for any reason deemed appropriate in its sole discretion. No minors may participate in any SPINK sales. Bids will be executed for mail bidders at one advance over the next highest bid in competition with floor and/or internet bidders, until the maximum bid is executed for the mail bidder, or until the lot is sold. No buy or unlimited bids will be accepted. No additional commission (except for the buyer’s premium) is charged for executing mail bids. SPINK cannot and does not assume any responsibility for errors made in the amount bid or lot numbers listed, so check your bid sheet and online submission carefully. When identical mail bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. SPINK may reopen the bidding on a lot under the following circumstances: (a) SPINK has failed to execute correctly a mail bid; (b) A party purchasing the lot on the floor has done so in error; (c) Where a protest is made after the hammer has fallen but before bidding has commenced on the next lot; (d) Where the auctioneer has determined that

312_FrtMat_Layout 1 12/15/11 4:56 PM Page iii

January 16 - 18, 2012 - New York, NY







he/she has overlooked a party still bidding on the lot but before the calling of the next lot; and (e) At the discretion of the auctioneer. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer’s decision shall be final. Agents executing bids on behalf of clients will be held responsible for all purchases made on behalf of clients unless otherwise arranged prior to the sale. The same protections applicable to SPINK shall apply to each officer, director and employee of SPINK unless such individual shall be convicted of knowingly and intentionally selling false or stolen goods. The descriptions provided in the catalog are intended solely for the use of those bidders who do not have the opportunity to view the lots prior to bidding. All photographs in the catalog are as accurate as can be reproduced with today’s technology; however, they cannot be relied upon for exact reproduction of color. All bidders who have inspected the lots prior to the auction will not be granted any return privileges, except for reasons of genuineness. It is presumed that all floor bidders have inspected the lots prior to bidding. Therefore, lots purchased by floor bidders are sold “AS IS” and may not be returned. Floor Bidders include those bidders acting as agents for others. Additionally, SPINK reserves the right to describe items differently than the descriptions shown in the catalog should such items be consigned to any future auction. All the lots are sold as genuine. For the purpose of this sale, “genuine” is defined as not faked or forged and SPINK will not knowingly sell any item that has been “repaired’, “restored”, “processed”, “cleaned”, “pressed” or “conserved” in any way without disclosure of such facts to the potential buyer. The following conditions apply to requests for expertization of philatelic items: (a) Mail bidders are asked to advise SPINK of any extension requests at the time of placing their bids; (b) Floor bidders must advise SPINK of any extensions in writing at the time of lot settlement; (c) SPINK will submit all items so requested by successful bidders to the reputable authority of their choice; For United States stamps, the Philatelic Foundation and the Professional Stamp Experts are the accepted authorities. (d) Purchasers of items submitted for expertization must pay as part of the purchase price all charges for expertization, including postage and handling; (e) Purchasers of items to be expertized must make payment in full immediately upon purchase prior to expertizing; Refunds will be made promptly for all sums if in the unlikely event an item is returned with a negative opinion; (f) Requests for expertization of stamps with certificates dated within the last five (5) years of the sale date will not be granted; (g) No lot may be returned due to a certification service grading a stamp differently than the grade stated in the auction description; (h) No lot will be accepted as a return from expertization if the item is indelibly marked as being altered or fraudulent by the expertizing authority; and (i) No lot will be accepted as a return, for any reason whatsoever, including extension returns, after four (4) months from the sale date. Any exceptions to this time limitation must be agreed to in writing at SPINK sole discretion. No lots may be returned without a written request by the successful bidder and the written approval of SPINK. In the unlikely event of returning a lot, SPINK must receive notifi-

20. 21.




cation of the buyer’s intent within three (3) days of the buyer’s receipt of the lot. The following lots may not be returned for any reason whatsoever: (a) lots containing ten or more items; (b) lots described as having faults or defects because of the faults described or any others, including lots described as “repaired”, “corroded”, “holed”, “whizzed”, or similar damage, except for non-authenticity; (c) illustrated lots because of centering, margins, etc. or other factors shown in the illustrations; (d) lots described “AS IS”, including third party graded coins or banknotes (i.e. PCGS, NGC, ANACS, ICG); (e) lots valued primarily for the bullion content; (f) lots examined by postal viewers; and (g) any philatelic extension lot unless the conditions set forth in Item 18 above is complied with fully. Except for lots placed on extension, as per the conditions of Item 18 above, no lots may be returned for any reason whatsoever after thirty (30) days from sale date. Late payment for purchase may, at SPINK option, be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges. If any disputes arise regarding payment, authenticity, or description between the bidder and SPINK, SPINK at its sole discretion, may submit the disputed matter to binding arbitration in Dallas, Texas, to which the bidder, by placing a bid and hereby accepting these Terms and Conditions of Sale, agrees to be bound. United States coins and currency will not, in conformity with the law, be opened at less than face value. The auctioneer reserves the right to postpone the sale by auction for a reasonable period of time as a result of any significant event which, in the sole discretion of the auctioneer, makes it advisable to postpone the event. No prospective bidder or prospective buyer shall have recourse as a result of any postponement In the event SPINK refers an invoice(s) to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay SPINK attorney’s fees, court costs, witness fees and other costs incurred by SPINK. ThESE TERMS OF SALE ShALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITh ThE LAWS OF ThE STATE OF TEXAS, WIThOUT GIVING REGARD TO ThE PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW. ThE SIGNER OF A SPINK BID ShEET OR PARTICIPANT IN ThE AUCTION AGREES ThAT EXCLUSIVE VENUE FOR ANY DISPUTE WITh RESPECT TO ThESE TERMS OR IN CONNECTION WITh SPINK ShALL RESIDE IN A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

The Frederick Schang Jr. Collection

Frederick C. Schang, Jr. graduated from Columbia School of Journalism in 1913, adopted the profession of concert manager, and eventually served as the president of the fledgling Columbia Artists Management, Inc. until his retirement in 1963. He managed many of the great musical artists of the day, beginning with tenor Enrico Caruso, through sopranos Rosa Ponselle and Lily Pons, to the Trapp family singers. While music was a great love of his, he himself was not a musician; instead, he excelled at the business of bringing music to the masses. My grandfather, Frederick C. Schang, had a life-long zeal for collecting which spanned a wide range of interests, including stamps, Japanese netsukes, Paul Klee artworks and, as represented in this auction, a fine group of ancient coins. He was best known for his extensive collection of visiting cards, which he collected with an ardor. is collection was primarily composed of musicians but also included artists, political figures, scientists and other notable performers of the pre-telephonic day. He wrote a half-dozen books, which he published privately, containing images of the cards along with anecdotal stories about their owners that he found amusing and interesting. He eventually donated the bulk of his card collection to his alma mater, e Columbia School of Journalism. His collection of ancient coins was originally put together in the sixties for his son, but aer the untimely passing of FC Schang III in 1971, the collection was passed on to me, FC Schang IV, then a young adolescent. My grandfather’s interest in coins was originally sparked by a desire to collect “the coins of Judas”, a representation of the biblical “30 pieces of silver” that constituted the payment to the famous betrayer of Jesus. Judging from the provenance of letters attached to this collection, Fred Schang had a keen eye for beauty and quality. He was undeterred in his pursuit of coins to which he was attracted. It would seem that he succeeded in most cases, as can be seen in the fine examples of this collection. is collection was held for me by my mother for a period of two decades and eventually transferred to me in the nineteen eighties. e coins have been enjoyed in their original binder for many years and have been rarely handled. Now I am proud to bring them to light and offer them for auction, in loving memory of my Grandfather. Frederick C. Schang IV

Sicily, Siculo-Punic, Time of the First Punic War (264-260 BC), AR 5 Shekels - Dekadrachm, mint of Panormus (?), 37.74gms, head of Tanit, wreathed in grain-ears, left, wearing single pendant earring, rev.

Struck by the Carthaginians in Sicily during the first Punic War against Rome, these large silver pieces were likely issued for military purposes. The types are clearly influenced by models of Corinth and her colony, Syracuse, but conversely are indicative of the waning of Greek influence in Carthaginian Sicily. On the obverse, the head of Tanit is rendered in a style derived from earlier gold and electrum of Carthage. Pegasos on the reverse, meanwhile, is copied from Corinthian Staters, but the treatment of the winged horse is alien to the Greek prototype. (photo) Est. 12,000-16,000

Aulock 6861), lightly toned over some old pinscratches in field, overall a decent example of a very rare and important issue of Sinope seldom offered in public sale, very fine. Originally a Hittite port, Sinope became the wealthiest emporium on the southern Euxine coast. Between 780 and 756 BC, Milesian Greeks founded a settlement there, while the area came under Phrygian contol in 700 BC. Sinope was laid waste by the Cimmerians in 677 BC, only to be refounded as a Milesian colony in ca. 630 BC. It later came under the yoke of the Persian empire. Following the defeat of the Persians at the hands of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian ruler told Sinope’s ambassador that the city should keep its old independence. After Alexander’s death, Sinope was able to remain independent both of the Seleukids and the Pontic kings. Syrian influence, though, was clear and this tetradrachm emulates Seleukid types of Antiochos III, albeit in distinctive Sinopan fashion. The obverse depicts Sinope, daughter of Asopus, who, according to the Greek historian Diodorus Siculus, bore Apollo (depicted on the reverse) a son, Syrus, the eponymous first king of the Syrians.

Here it is implied that the emperor has rescued the collective citizen body of Rome. The ubiquitous Augustan tie-in to Julius Caesar, meanwhile, fills the reverse which depicts the comet viewed in the Roman sky during the days of July 44 BC and which was associated with the deification of Julius Caesar. Purchased on approval from Frederick S. Knobloch’s May 1967 listing for $195. Includes note signed by Knobloch. (photo) Est. 1,000-1,500

Canada. 2009 “Surviving the Flood” Olympic $250 Silver Coin. NGC PR69 Ultra Cameo. Mintage 1,500. Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse while the reverse displays an artistic native rendering.

Per the story, an eagle caught salmon and dropped the fish into the canoes, giving the Squamish people sustenance and ensuring their survival. This story depicts the power of many working together as well as the power, connection, and interdependence between man and nature. Much of this is artistically woven into the coin’s design and makes for an incredibly collectible issue. Housed in the original box of issue. From the Waldman Collection. (photo) Est. 1,200-1,400

Beijing Olympics 5oz Gold Coin

1364 1364

China - People’s Republic. 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic 2000 Yuan / 5oz Gold Coin. KM-1850. Fr-278. Mintage: 2,008. On the obverse, the common design for the Beijing summer olympics coinage is employed with the colorized logo for the games at center surrounded by two dragons. The reverse illustrates a depiction of four sports (volleyball, boxing, hurdles, and diving) in the foreground with the olympic rings in the background. A seldom offered and impressive relic of the 29th modern olympic games that remains housed in its equally impressive presentation box. The cloth box opens to the head of carved 5.8 pound jade dragon. At the base of the dragon in Chinese and English, it reads “The official commemorative gold coin for the games of the XXIX olympiad / 5oz / AU .9999”. Lifting the jade dragon reveals this massive gold coin. For the reasons of scarcity, significant intrinsic value, and presentation, this issue is among the most desirable items that was produced for the olympics. Given the massive population of Chinese collectors that were able to connect with the game, one would expect the demand for this low-mintage item to carry into the future and be treated by many as a family heirloom. A significant opportunity for collector of elite modern or Chinese coinage. Accompanied by the original certificate of authenticity. From the Waldman Collection. (photo) Est. 15,000-17,000

Incredibly Rare German – Ottoman Meeting Medal

1398 1398

German States - Brandenburg-Prussia. 1917 Wilhelm II and Mehmed V Reshad Silver Meeting Medal. Uncirculated. Cf. Pere 1149. 64mm/121.1gms. Obv: Crowned imperial eagle with coat of arms on breast and wearing Order of the Black Eagle. Rev: Tughra. When the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed V Reshad hosted Kaiser Wilhelm II in Constantinople on October 15th 1917, major strategic changes were taking place in their war with the Allied Powers. Franz Josef, the third member of the Drei Kaiser Bund, and a major element of the Central Powers was dead. His successor, Karl I, secretly entered into peace negotiations with the French. In March, revolution in Russia had forced the abdication of the Tsar in favor of a provisional government still committed to persecuting the war on the Eastern Front. The Kerensky government, however, faced numerous difficulties at home, due to agitation by the Bolsheviks, and it remained unclear how much longer Russia would remain a combatant. Once Russia was out of the picture, Germany could move its eastern forces to the beleaguered Western Front. Moreover, Mehmed V Reshad had no real power, and instead the three Pashas, advisors to the sultan, conducted the war for the Ottomans. Although ambitious, they were poor commanders, and the Ottomans suffered defeats from both the Russians in the Caucasus as well as the Arabs and British in the Middle East. That same year, America entered the war on the side of the Allies. Still an unknown quantity at this point, their presence would surely conclude trouble for Germany’s war effort. The meeting between the two remaining members was a futile last-ditch effort to keep their alliance together. An imposing silver medal struck to commemorate the meeting of two leaders that were intimately involved in the greatest war the world had ever seen. While certainly a rare medal, the actual number that exist is unknown. Research has failed to turn up a comparable silver specimen, however a bronze medal did hammer for $3,250 in an 2008 auction. For the historian intrigued by the major wars of the previous century, this certainly stands out as an exciting opportunity to obtain a relic with lasting significance. (photo) Est. 2,500-3,000

An exceptionally high quality award medal given by the Daubeny foundation at Oxford to H. H. Robinson. The surfaces remain exceptionally preserved and tonefree. At 12 o’clock, a loop was added (likely at time of award) for suspension. Apparently very rare, as the medal appears to have escaped cataloging in major works. Dr. Charles Giles Bridle Daubeny (1795-1867) was a Professor of Chemistry at Oxford from 1822 to 1855. He is responsible for significant advancements in the chemistry, geology, and botany. H.H.

Iran. ND (1899 - AH1317) 5 Toman Medal for Bravery, Muzaffar al-Din Shah. Uncirculated Detail, Ex-jewelry. FR-53. KM-1075. 14.1gms. An exceptional rare medal struck in 5 Toman weight as an issue for bravery. The surfaces have been cleaned at one time, but hold much original luster with evidence of mounting at 12 o’clock. The last example we were able to trace at auction was sold by a German house in March 2010 for approximately $3,000USD before the buyer’s premium. That example was circulated and showed surface tooling. With good reason, that example, the current one, and others that exist likely show some mishandling as these were without doubt awards of great honor and held closely as a talisman. An exceptional opportunity for the Middle Eastern specialist. (photo) Est. 2,000-2,500

Historic Siege of Haarlem Daalder

1507 1507

Netherlands, Siege of Haarlem. 1572 1 Daalder Klippe. VF. Demonte-142a. Emission of 21 December 1572. Uniface octagonal strike. Four punches make the design with the central punch being a crosstipped sword (city coat of arms), and the surrounding punches being the date, a moon and star, and a lion shield inside beaded circle (coat-of-arms of Holland). The surfaces remain even in appearance with a light gray patina. Two small planchet cracks (as-made) are visible upon close inspection and are only noted for accuracy’s sake. A sensational and rare item worthy of the finest Thaler collection. Ex. J.R. Lasser Collection. In late 1572, the Spanish, commanded by Fernando Álvarez, Duke of Alba, besieged Haarlem. With nearly 20,000 troops, the Spanish assumed an easy victory, considering Haarlem had only 6,000 armed men. However, their two attempted assaults (one in December and the next in January of 1573) met with overwhelming resistance and resulted in considerable losses. In an attempt to taunt the Spanish soldiers, the well-supplied townspeople occasionally threw bread over the city walls and mounted statues plundered from Catholic churches on the ramparts. In July 1573, the Spanish were finally able to break the town’s supply line. With its food source gone, Haarlem was forced to surrender, thus ending the 10-month siege. The Spanish, hungry for vengeance, executed more than 1,700 of the town’s citizens. (photo) Est. 2,00-2,500

Thailand. Rama V (1896-1910) Obverse and Reverse Token Hub of Die Set. Design is approximately 30mm. Apparently made by the Paris Mint. A curious and exceptionally well produced hub and die set produced as a victory medal to celebrate successful military defense over the invading Chinese “Hoa� from the Yunnan Province. When the Thai troops returned to the capital, these medal were awarded to high ranking officials. If put into production, the obverse impression would yield a left facing military bust of Rama V with wreath below. The reverse, features an ornamented leftward striding elephant with two riders atop and an interwoven crossed sword, pitchfork, and bow below. All four examples are well preserved with the hubs both showing minor surface cuts on both sides, perhaps to act as cancellation. Trivial rust is evident on the edges. The dies are flaw-free and in working order. Both have letters punched at the non-business end, perhaps placed by the die maker, or as inventory control - the hubs showing NBS and the dies SM. For the Thai collector, or the world collector interested in minting paraphernalia, the current set is certainly unique and would make a perfect centerpiece for a collection.

Massive 86 Pounds - 9.28 Ounces Nuestra Señora de Atocha Silver Bar. The Story While sunken treasure and it’s recovery, seems a topic that make the eyes of young and old light up with enchantment, few actual recoveries can match the allure of the Nuestra Señora de Atocha. While the wreck still remains the gold standard in terms of popularity, and many are familiar with the accounts of its sinking and eventual recovery, the offering of a relic with the magnitude the present offering does deserve brief retelling. In 1622 the Atocha, and a fleet of ships started their voyage from a Spanish-owned port to collect and ultimately transport material back to the motherland. Upon completion of the portside duties, the Atocha rendezvoused in Havana harbor with what became a 28 ship convey, and, six weeks behind schedule, on September 4th, finally made its last departure for Spain. As luck would have it, four days later, the fleet would encounter a significant hurricane west of Key West, which would deal the accompanying Santa Margarita and Atocha a mortal blow - damaging the hull beyond repair and quickly sinking its valuable haul. Immediately, further Spanish ships were dispatched to salvage whatever possible, but the Santa Margarita was the only ship to be located and the treasure of the Atocha would eventually be forgotten. Now, fast forward 363 years to 1985. After 16 years of combing the sea floor for sunken shipwrecks, treasure hunter Mel Fisher finally found his giant. In total, the value thus far recovered sits in excess of 450 million dollars and included over 40 tons of gold and silver including coins and 962 silver bars. Massive headlines followed, making the Atocha nearly a household name, and beginning in September of 1987 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, many of these treasure would become available for the public’s bid. The Silver Bars As previously mentioned, 962 silver ingots of over 1000 on the ship’s original manifest that currently resides in Seville Spain, have been recorded as recovered from Mel Fisher’s enterprise. These bars vary in size significantly with the largest of the bars weighing in at a staggering 100+ pounds. While not present on all recovered specimens, many were part of an official manifest and carry accompanying marks that tell their history. These marks many times include a Roman numeral foundry date, ingot number, silversmith’s mark, silver purity, assayer stamp, assayer’s bite, owner’s and shipper’s initials, as well as tax stamps to certify that the King’s fifth has been paid. Bar Specifics The present bar is among the group of larger bars to be recovered with an impressive weight of 86 troy pounds and 9.28 ounces. The uniformly gray colored bar measures 34.5cm long x 13cm wide x 9cm deep. Impressed into the top of the bar are a number of easily discernable marks. Stamped at top center reads “IIIIUCCXXXIX” and translates as the bar number 4239 (IIIU is shorthand for MMMM meaning four thousand). From the original shipping register, this bar matches to PB236. The bars purity is stamped at bottom center as “IIUCCCLXXX” or 2380 (.9917 pure silver) of a total 2400 maximum purity. The assayer stamp lies directly to its right. Directly above, three round stamp impressions are visible, signaling the king had received his 20% tax on this bar and to their left the assayer’s “bite” where purity was tested. At the top left, a “V” shaped mark represents the silvermaster’s mark. Various other symbols are present and represent the owner or shipper. While faint, the foundry date of 1621 sits partially beneath one of these symbols at left. The certificate of authenticity from Mel Fisher’s Treasures, L.L.C that accompanies the bar adds that the the recovery date was December 31, 1985 and assigns a class factor of 1, the highest quality associated with the ships recovered treasure. Case for Ownership With nearly 1000 bars recovered, conventional wisdom would suggest that many have been kept and are available as relics of the world’s most famous shipwreck recovery. However, with a little investigation, much evidence suggests the contrary. First on the list of evidence were the distribution methods for the bars. While many did end up in the hands of shipwreck aficionados or numismatic-minded individuals, Mel Fisher would also use the treasurer’s loot as payment to investors in the project. As a result, many that came into ownership of these bars surely melted them and took the proceeds as a long awaited payday. Additionally, with the rise in the silver bullion prices over the past years, many other owners were no doubt tempted to do the same. At current, some experts factor a survival of less than 50% for these impressive pieces. Further take into account that many bars were small and poorly marked, and the number of truly collectible specimens in existence is further reduced. As was alluded to earlier, the present bar is fully and boldly marked and must have been among the most presentable bars to make it off the sea floor. Parley the bar’s appearance with the increasing disappearance of bars of similar class and the underlying historic significance of this treasure, and we see a compelling numismatic reason for ownership. Of course, the intrinsic value cannot be dismissed either. For the investor in silver, this bar offers an incredible opportunity for future appreciation, while having a rarely rivaled display piece during the wait. In culmination, the present bar is an exhibit of staggering importance, which no matter the angle, results in seldom-available opportunity. (photo) Est. 40,000-60,000

Balzac, Honore de Major French novelist and playwright (1799-1850); his vast masterpiece, The Human Comedy, comprised nearly 100 books. Good content Autograph Letter Signed “de Balzac,” 1-1/2 pages, 8vo, Tours, June 23, (1830). He writes to the Baron of Mortemart in Paris, apologizing for not replying to his letters. When he arrived on June 2, he went immediately for the coast, where he fished and swam, and forgot “about Paris, about the literature of the world I had been in,” and was, so to speak, like “a dogfish or a King.” He says that he was ready to respond to his letters like a government minister, but had been deprived of the means. Creases, otherwise VG. Balzac’s roots were in Tours, and he returned to the area frequently to escape the hubub of the capital. The month after this letter, Paris was rocked by the July Revolution, which overthrew Charles X and placed Louis Philippe on the throne. Balzac would support the old aristocracy, fittingly, since his correspondent the baron had been named president of Charles’s council of ministers. (photo)

Berlioz, Hector French composer and conductor (1803-69); a leader in the development of the modern orchestra, he also set the stage for later romantic composers such as Wagner and Liszt. Autograph Letter Signed “H. Berlioz” in French, 1 page, 12mo, London, July 2, 1853. He writes Camille that “Our letters have crossed. I received yours here yesterday with the 500-franc note it contained.” Matted under glass with a printed portrait of Berlioz and contained in a gilt wooden frame, overall size 10.5” x 14.7”. Berlioz was in London to stage a revised version of his first opera, Benvenuto Cellini, which had first been presented in 1838 but had been poorly received. The London staging was also unsuccessful, and Berlioz closed it after one performance. (photo - page 152)

Buchanan, James Fifteenth President of the United States (1791-1868, served 1857-61); his indecisiveness is often cited as a factor contributing to the outbreak of the US Civil War. Handsome, political content Autograph Letter Signed “James Buchanan” as US Senator from Pennsylvania, 1 page, 4to, Washington, April 2, 1840. He writes to Col. Richard Frazer, “I have presented the petition which you enclosed to me for the establishment of a Post office at Bearville; and the usual interrogatories will be sent immediately by the Postmaster General...I think all our prospects are brightening in regard to the Presidential election...Virginia is safe.” Original blotting of Buchanan’s signature from folding otherwise quite Fine. Virginia’s vote was safely behind Buchanan’s candidate, fellow Democrat President Martin Van Buren. But the senator’s own Pennsylvania was not, nor was the president’s home state of New York, both of which went to the ultimate victor, Whig William Henry Harrison. (photo - page 152)

Civil War: Union Soldier’s Letters Group of seven ALS by James McIntyre of the 49th NY Volunteer Infantry, April 1862 and later (most are not fully dated), five on patriotic stationery (two of “The Soldier’s Dream” of home, two of GB McClellan, and one with the text of the “Soldier’s Memento,”). At the Battle of Yorktown during the Peninsula Campaign, he writes “The rebbels fired from thair rifle pits at our pickets. Thare was a blase of fire for a mile long. We fire a few shells at them and thay stoped...I think this will be the last battle if we whip them.” He tells of the Battle of Hanover Court House, “Thare was about three hundred killed and wounded and about one thousand on the rebbels side we got five hundred prisoners. I saw a lot of the wounded Rebels and thay was most all of them wounded in the back.” In a later skirmish, “I saw a shell strike one of our men and it tore him most to peaces. We have got hardend so that we can stand and see alll most any thing.” On June 15 he reports of having met with enemy pickets: “They gave us some Richmon papers. Thay was very friendly shok hands when we left and sayed that thay was glad to meet us...That last battle was an awful battle. Thare was a grate many killed, more than the papers tell of...Thay could not bury all of the rebbels...Thare is a grate many of them layes a bove the ground.” McIntyre spends some time in the hospital before returning to his regiment (this may have occurred before the above, for these letters are not fully dated). McIntyre receives a serious wound in the Overland Campaign, for there is a May 17, 1864 ALS to his family from a Treasury employee explaining that the soldier has “lost about 2 inches of the bone in his left arm...James is cheerful and pleasant, bears it like a hero as he is - he sent home as soon as he can travel with safety.” Another letter from Mt Pleasant Hospital in Washington reports that McIntyre wants his mother and wife to visit so he will not die before seeing them. Finally, there is a $21 bill to the McIntyres for embalming and boxing their son for his return. June 15 letter with soiling affecting some legibility, otherwise all VG. [12] (photo - page 152)

Hollywood: Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle American actor and director (1887-1933); one of the giants of silent comedy, his career was destroyed when he was accused of a horrible rape that led to a woman’s death; though exonerated, he never regained the public’s trust.

Hollywood: Hedy Lamarr Austrian-American actress (1914-2000); known for her intelligence, she helped invent a frequency-hopping device whose principles are the basis for cell phones; considered by many the most beautiful woman in film history.

Houdini, Harry Legendary American stage magician and escape artist, real name Ehrich Weiss (1874-1926) combined daredevil stunts, spectacular illusions, and a keen instinct for self-promotion to become the greatest stage magician of his and perhaps any era; invented or perfected many of the illusions that still thrill audiences today; killed at age 51 when a fan punched him to test his claim that he could handle any blow, and inadvertently ruptured his infected appendix.

Houdini, Harry Excellent magic history content Typewritten Letter Signed “Houdini” in pencil, 1 page, 4to, (Brooklyn, NY), March 1, 1918. Typos show that Houdini himself must have typed this letter to Edwin Fay Rice, magician and curator of the Boston Public Library. He sends thanks for “Photos of Prof Young and Mrs...I believe they must have been taken from before Young was entering the last mile stones of his life...I am working a number of benefits for the soldiers and Navy, so am as busy as possible. 278 is being gradually being [sic] brought to a clean state...” He adds in a postscript, “Did you see the Sphinx this month? There is an article by Harry Thompson, re early history of magic in Chicago. How would it be to have such an article re Boston?...It would not cost much?? And wud [sic] be a good article for M.U.M...” Minor wear at upper right corner, otherwise VG/F. With original typed embossed envelope of the Society for American Magicians, of which Houdini was president. M-U-M was the society’s newsletter. “Prof. Young” was one of the most prominent American stage magicians of the 19th century. Houdini’s interest in the history of his craft, and in those who mastered it, was obvious in his own stage name, which he chose to honor the great French illusionist Jean Robert-Houdin. But the truth meant more to him than his hero, and he later wrote a book exposing Houdin for stealing others’ illusions and taking credit for devising them! (photo)

Piasecki Aircraft (PA) Ca. 1955. Specimen. Shares. Green. Eagle with outstretched wings. EF. Frank Nicholas Piasecki was an aeronautical engineer and pioneer for the development of transport helicopters and vertical lift. In 1940 Piasecki founded and headed a research group, the PV-Engineering Forum. Piasecki flew their first helicopter, the PV-2, on April 11, 1943; this was only the second successful helicopter to fly in the U.S. This technical achievement attracted the attention of the U.S. Navy, who awarded the young designer a contract for the construction of a large tandem rotor helicopter capable of carrying heavy payloads in a large cabin. Thirteen months later, in March 1945, Piasecki flew the world’s first successful tandem rotor helicopter, which was also the first helicopter designed for the U.S. Navy. Popularly called the “Flying Banana”, it was the forerunner of modern tandem rotor transport and was capable of carrying as many passengers as comparable fixed wing airplanes. Est. 150-250

Transcontinental Aerial Navigation Company 1886. Letterhead. Features a tremendous vignette of the steel vacuum balloon flying high above a harbor. Letter noting the receipt of three shares of stock in the Transcontinental Aerial Navigation Company VF+. In 1887 the Associated Press described a steel vacuum balloon 144 feet in diameter and 654 feet long, in which Dr. A. De Bausset proposed to carry passengers to the North Pole at incredible speed if they would furnish him with $130,000 to meet construction expenses. The AP wrote; “Here is a most excellent opportunity for all who like to win fame by being one of the party which shall step foot upon that icy ignis fatuus.” It may be noted that the inventor of the great steel balloon, after organizing the Transcontinental Aerial Navigation Company and failing to raise all of the $130,000, sought aid from the government. Recommended by the most able military advisers, the initial bill actually passed in the House, but was later defeated on the advice of scientists. Scarce and highly desirable. (photo) Est. 300-500

Gold Crater Mining (CO) 1896. Colorado Springs. #136.150 Shares. Brown. Twin volcanic peaks, town nestled below. A portion of the volcano vignette is repeated on the back. Signed by William S. Stratton as president .Elgan Bank Note. VF+. Winfield Scott Stratton (1848-1902) was Cripple Creek’s first millionaire. In 1891, after twenty years of prospecting, Stratton came to the gold camps of Colorado. On July 4th, 1891, he staked out the Independence Mine, named in honor of that day. Stratton systematically mined the property, taking out small quantities of ore, and leaving reserves in the ground. He was able to finance the development of the mine without having to sell stock publicly. The Independence was one of the few mines that managed to remain in the hands of a single owner. It was the “King of the District’’, and enabled Stratton to control nearly a fifth of Cripple Creek’s best properties. (photo) Est. 750-1,250
