World-wide Auction Results

Just got the PR for Jim's latest World-wide Coins of California auction (no buyer's premium). Some very strong prices were achieved for high-quality coins or ultra rare coins with no serious defects. Lesser quality coins generally came in at or slightly under estimate. High quality coins were at multiples of the estimates. Jim's estimates are usually conservative. (elmen@sonic.net)

 

Some standouts (estimates in brackets):

 

POLAND 10 ZLOTYCH 1820 Proof-like EF+ Dav. 248 (very rare): $18,000 [$3,000]

Rouble 1743 MMD Dav. 1678 about EF struck over Ivan III rouble - light scratch on obverse field, otherwise lustrous: $5,250 [$750]

5 Kopeks 1763 (no MM) B-195, Bitkin-607 F-VF (Exceedingly Rare): $13,500 [$1,500]

Poltina 1826 NG Julian-750 "wings up" Choice UNC (very rare): $21,000 [$2,000]

Marriage Rouble 1841 NG on reverse, reeded edge Dav. 288A Choice toned EF (rare): $26,000 [$2,000]

Rouble 1762 NK Dav. 1682 Choice AR-UNC: $27,000 [$10,000]

Poltina 1842 MW Julian-780 Beautifully toned, proof-like UNC: $13,000 [$1,000]

Thanks Marv. Yes, even the scarce (but not very rare) copper came in lower than I expected. I was able to buy pieces in both the Elmen and Soensteby (Hoiland) sales that have been long missing from my collection (1761MM 5K, 1768MM 5K, 1794AM Paul Overstrike 5K etc). This is likely a function of the current economy. While it certainly represents a buying opportunity compared to levels a year ago, it remains to be seen whether these prices will ultimately have been bargains or if they have further to go.

Strangely enough I was also able to get a few copper coins this time - 1734 super nice denga, 1762 2 kopeks with "N", 1802 EM 5 kopeks with "skinny" eagle, and last but not least - 1766 Siberia 5 kopeks with lettered edge! Will the prices for these go down more? Well, I am still pretty happy (for now:).

Received my coins today. I did not win 1762 2 kopeks :ninja:
