    Selling collection question

    Over the years I have accumulated a large collection of certified (ICCS, NGC, PCGS, ANACS) and uncertified Canadian coins. I'm is the USA and I wish to sell them now but the effort to put it on eBay would be Herculean. Can anyone recommend a reliable dealer to whom to sell?
  4. Very impressive buy ! Did another bidder know its provenance and stopped bidding at 1600 euro ?

    1977 quarter info

    I have a 1977 quarter hold a little bit of damage not sure if it was done Postment or after
  10. Thank you Eugene and Igor. A 5kop1793 no mintmark was listed in the DUBLETTEN sale, unpictured (Adolph Hess, Frankfurt Germany 1932 - Dubletten Russischer Museen). As the Michailovich coin was in the Novgorod Museum it might well have been the one in the Dubletten sale. I'll try to inquire at Künker's. Sigi
  11. Sigi, my congratulations as well. I did see the coin in the Kunker catalog, but did not look further, since I had one. What a provenance! I wonder where it was hiding for the past 100 or so years.

    Swiss Shooting Medals

    One additional item to add to my answer regarding the use of AU53 and MS64 designations. Please keep in mind that the majority of Swiss schützenfest medals sold in Swiss and European auctions are not encapsulated therefore the ss-vz and FDC grades are not problematic to the average collector in Switzerland and Europe in regard to shooting medals. The vast majority of medals in our collection are not third-party graded yet many would grade above MS65 yet they would be sold as FDC medals. Plus, the majority of schützenfest collectors reside on the other side of the pond, therefore any problems or pricing issues will be mostly from non-Europeans and from third-party graded medals.
  13. It's an amazing find Sigi! I can imaging the spectrum of feelings that you went through when you found it, won at the auction and finally got it and held it in your hands for the first time... There is nothing like this hobby, when you can feel at the same time as a historian researcher, an addict and a treasure hunter! Well done finding it and securing it for a hansom, but way under its real price (if you really know what it is). My honest congratulations!

    Swiss Shooting Medals

    Hi Rod, I am so anxious to get my hands on the second edition! A few questions...... How did you convince Richter to put your favorite Swiss shooting medal design on the front cover? 😋 Do you know or feel that most of the medal values have increased and reflected in the second edition? Yes Do you feel that tying "vz-unz" values to a specific grade of AU53 and "FDC" to MS64 will be problematic for the collector? Not a collector that is level headed with common sense. 😉 But yes, I feel there may be some confusion/problems, especially now that you see so many third-party graded medals and the fact that many sellers are not educated in the Swiss schützenfest medal field, plus many sellers price based on "U. S. coin not medal graded pricing" and greed. Because of these factors, they feel the need to ask prices much higher than market just because a medal may be graded MS65 or higher. I believe that ss-vz and FDC cover a wider rating/grading range than the specific grades mentioned by Richter. IMHO  How did Richter come to those comparisons? As the author, (or any author for that matter) Jürg has made certain assumptions and decisions regarding content in his fine book. In this case, because it has been translated into English, he needed to come up with an English "translation" or value for the European "ss-vz" and "FDC" and in these instances, he gave them the AU53 and MS64 designations for the English language reader. As many would agree, AU53 up to MS63 would fall into the ss-vz range and MS64 and up would fall into the FDC range. There may be some pricing deviations based on individual medals but I believe that most serious schützenfest medal collectors would follow these guidelines.

  16. There was a 5kop1793 Paul's reoverstrike in the latest KÜNKER sale. At first glance it looked like just another Paulian 1793EM. Only when comparing my own 1793EMs with the picture it struck me that the KÜNKER coin lacked the "EM" mintmark. WOW. Looking the coin up in my catalogs was worth an even bigger WOW - the KÜNKER coin is the MICHAILOVICH specimen!!!, the same picture later borrowed by Brekke, Bitkin, Yusupov, Diakov etc. The identical MICHAILOVICH picture everywhere. In the Corpus it says, that the coin was in the Novgorod museum - the Grand Duke did not even own it himself!! WOW. I had the very very faint hope that the coin might pass under the radar of most people - and Bingo! I won it at EURO1600 / $1980. Awful heap of money for me (don't tell my wife) but I never had dreamed of a coin with this pedigree. It is safe to assume that there is no shaved off "EM" and that the anonymous coin was struck at the Novgorod auxiliary mint. See the Michailovich coin above and the Künker coin below. Sigi

  18. Hello all I just got this coin and after doing some research i think it is an ARCADIUS. Could anyone please help me and verify that I'm correct?
