FEBRUARY 2014 FIXED PRICE LIST
I have been a very active buyer of collections and at auction over the past few months. The theme of these acquisitions is eye appeal
Over 100 coins are now available for purchase. Each coin has been photographed by Lance Keigwin. Most of the coins are graded by PCGS
and lie in the grade range AU 50 through MS 63. Click here
to go directly to the Fixed Price List and photos. I expect orders to come
fast and furious. Get to your phone or computer without delay. I will try to keep the list of available coins up to date via daily
messages to Dave Rutherford, my stalwart and patient web master.
You should read the Terms of Sale
before ordering any coins. Nothing unusual there, but always a good idea. Note that postage and
insurance is added to invoices. There is an unconditional 5-day return privilege on all purchases.
Never hesitate to call if you have a specific question about any of the coins offered here.
ON THE HORIZON
Overton Book – 5th Edition
Don Parsley (Al Overton’s son-in-law) has completed his revision of the standard reference work on bust half-dollars, United States
Early Half Dollar Die Varieties 1794-1836. The 5th edition is at the printers and is now scheduled for shipment in March. Don tells
me the size of the book is reduced by 70 pages. The photos are the same as in the 4th edition but printed on white coated paper that
will prevent bleeding and sharpen the images. The Condition Census and rarity ratings have undergone substantial revision.
The retail price is $85 per copy. I placed a substantial order and am happy to offer copies at the discounted price of $69,
including shipping via USPS media mail. Add $5 if you prefer that your copy be sent priority mail. There is no sales tax unless
your book is shipped to California. Then add 9%. This price will hold until my initial order is sold out. Place your order now.
Mail Bid Sale No. 39
I am thrilled to report that Keith Davignon has agreed to part with another 80 delightful capped bust halves from his collection.
All are graded by PCGS. These are Keith’s “set pieces,” not duplicates. The sale will occur in conjunction with this year’s ANA
Convention (World’s Fair of Money) in Rosemont (outside Chicago), August 5-9, 2014. The coins will be delivered to me at the
Baltimore show in March. As soon as Lance Keigwin completes the photography I will post a lot list and photographs of this
remarkable consignment. A fully illustrated, descriptive catalogue will be issued in July.
I have room for another 40 coins in the auction. Flowing hair and draped bust halves would be especially welcome. But do not
be shy to discus a consignment from the capped bust series. Email or call anytime.
HOW ABOUT A BOOK OR TWO?
In the meantime you may want to order the latest edition of Steve Herrman’s AMBPR. This invaluable pricing tool is yours for $30.
(Postpaid, media mail; add $5 for Priority Mail.) I have a few copies of the Fall 2013 Edition in stock. First come, first served. Other books in stock
include the 1st edition of Edgar Souders Bust Half Fever, the 2nd edition of Keith Davignon’s book on Contemporary Counterfeits, Dick Graham’s 2013 reference work on die varieties
of Reeded Edge Capped Bust Half Dollars and Steve Herrman’s 2010 “AMBPR Complete Edition” on CD.
