INTRODUCTION    (back to top)


Welcome to our first ancient and world coin list since last summer. This was suppose to be a bigger list out in early February. We've been so busy the past few months that we're already 6 weeks behind schedule and must get the list out now. Thus, many coins, tokens and medals will have to wait till next list for us to list them. Many of you are also receiving our 2006 Israel/Palestine/Judaic stock list at the same time. If you did not receive that list and want a copy, please ask for a free copy. We ran out of room and time for either more coins or more information. And ran out of time to make any more needed corrections. Many of you know that list 36B, means that this is our 36th year of issuing lists. The B indicates that this is our 2nd list of 2006. Actually both A (the aforementioned Israel stock list) and B are being mailed together. A * next to the number indicates that a picture of the item is on our website. There are many items from the George Fisher and Bill Spengler collections being offered here. Last summer we listed George's coins with a GF number which caused mass confusion for everybody, thus his coins are being incorporated into the regular listing with the same numbers. If you have not ordered from us in the past year or so your subscription has probably expired and a subscription form is included with this list. If your order you will of course receive future lists. We would much rather sell coins, tokens, medals and banknotes than subscriptions, so please order. You can guarantee receiving our lists by sending us $15 ($25 overseas) or you can access all our lists free of charge on our website. Either Rita or I are normally available by phone between 9 AM and 6 PM Monday through Friday. In many cases we will answer the phone earlier or later and on weekends. However you may leave a message 24 hours a day and we will try to return your call as soon as possible. Please leave a short, concise and understandable message. Please note that when we are writing our auction catalogs (In 2006 that will be March, April and September) we may leave the phone unattended for long periods of time. However we will return your call. Postage rates have gone up but we will try to keep or postage charges the same. (See the order blank for actual charges). However on heavy packages we will probably add actual postage costs. Overseas packages will be charged at least $10 and there is a $3 minimum shipping charge on all orders. A couple of advertisements for myself. We are running for the Board of Directors for the International Banknote Society. If you are a member we would appreciate your vote. If you are not a member, please join. Also we are scheduled to teach at the American Numismatic Association's Summer Seminar. The course is entitled "Numismatic History of the Holy Land and the Jewish People from ancient to modern times". A long title, but a fun course. Please consider enrolling. Contact me or the ANA (www.money.org) for more information. Unfortunately the information about the seminar is only available on line. It seems that they think everybody is computer literate.
