RONALD B. VLACK collection at Markov's auction

Recommended Posts

We remember Ronald and his dedication to the database project.

 

 

RONALD B. VLACK COLLECTION (1935-2015)
_______________________________________________________________
A high-ranking business executive residing in White Plains, NY, Ronald B. Vlack (1935-2015) grew very interested in Russian numismatics in the 1970’s and became an active and dedicated buyer. He acquired most of his coins from the mid-1970’s to the mid-1990’s. After his retirement, Ron worked tirelessly for over a decade creating a database for Russian numismatics. A mission impossible for one man, the database alas was never completed. But still it stands as testimony to his devotion.
Over the past few years, we have been selling a select few of Ron’s coins in auction. Some highlights include a Paul 1798 5 Roubles from the Grand Duke George Mikhailovich Collection Sale, an 1803 Poltina and an 1802 Polupoltinnik from the Virgil Brand Collection Sale, a magnificent House of Romanov Tercentenary Medal, various 19th Century Proof Roubles and Poltinas, and a complete 1828 Pattern Trial Set of 2 and 1 Kopecks and Denga. This offering here is a larger continuation, for we are offering a major part of his collection here.
Ron had a sharp eye for quality, so collectors will find some superb pieces in this offering. Among his favorite coins were the copper coinage of Nicholas I of all three series, particularly patterns. One of the stars of his collection and of this sale is a complete set of 1849 CΠM Patterns. We are proud to offer Ron Vlack’s fine collection to the numismatic community. Happy bidding and good luck to all.
It was Mr. Vlack’s wish, as it is his family’s, that his coins be offered ‘raw’, unslabbed. We have cataloged and graded his coins with care and on the conservative side. Winning bidders can anticipate some positive grading surprises and potential. However, we encourage bidders to carefully examine every coin as the cataloger cannot guarantee the future performance of U.S. or foreign certification service companies.
Curious and resolute collectors will likely locate additional provenances for coins which we were unable to find in pre-1995 sales catalogs.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
В соответствии с желанием мистера Влака и его семьи, его монеты предлагаются к продаже в их первозданном виде, без всяких вмешательств и слабов. Вся коллекция каталогизирована очень консервативно, и мы убеждены, что многие победители торгов будут приятно удивлены впоследстии, если захотят отправить их на грейдинг и слабирование. Тем не менее, мы рекомендуем участникам торгов внимательно изучить каждую монету, так как аукционер-каталогизатор не может гарантировать, что его экспертное мнение всегда совпадает с экспертным мнением NGC и других независимых грейдинговых кампаний.
В монетах коллекции много дополнительного потенциала для основательных коллекционеров в плане нахождения происхождения монет и их родословных.

Looks funny text in the catalogue :)

 

"However, we encourage bidders to carefully examine every coin as the cataloger cannot guarantee the future performance of U.S. or foreign certification service companies."

and in Russian text mention NGC

"Тем не менее, мы рекомендуем участникам торгов внимательно изучить каждую монету, так как аукционер-каталогизатор не может гарантировать, что его экспертное мнение всегда совпадает с экспертным мнением NGC и других независимых грейдинговых кампаний."

 

Looks like Markov works hard with the returns and advised everybody.

If NGC , other U.S.service companies or foreign certification service stated "coin not authentic" ,than Markov not agree and do not accept any returns?
