24. The minimum acceptable bid on any lot is at least 60% of the estimate. In some cases a reserve may be higher than that, but it will never be higher than the estimate. We have made every effort to make the estimates realistic and conservative. In addition no bids on coins and medals of precious metals will be accepted that are below the melt value of the item. For our mailbid purposes we are defining precious metals as being of silver, gold, platinum or palladium.


We will stop taking bids at 9:00 PM on May 25th or when our phone and/or Fax stops ringing for 10 minutes. Please do not wait until the last minute and get shut out. In every sale a number of bidders could not get through on the last night.

We suggest you bid above estimate if you want an item as high bids will be reduced. Our bid sheets offer several bidding options that can save you money, optimize your bids and see that you get the lots that you really want. If you are unsure of how to use these options, please give us a call and we will be more than happy to explain them to you.

Please keep in mind that in some cases there may be unpublished reserves set either by the consignor or the cataloger and no bids of less than 60% of estimate are considered. We do not have a call back service, but after placing your bid you may contact us as many times as you like to check on your bids. And we take seriously the commitment to reduce bids. We do not reveal the high bid of any lot, but if you have placed a bid on a lot, you may contact us after your bid has been placed and we will tell you if you are the high bidder.

Usually well over 1/3 of all successful bids are reduced and over 75% of successful bidders have at least one of their winning bids reduced. We believe that the best strategy to being a successful bidder is placing your bids early and not waiting until the last minute.

Please keep in mind that we can not guarantee who is the last bidder. If someone calls us at 9 PM, the sale will continue for at least 10 minutes after that call is completed. If someone else calls us during that 10 minutes, the sale continues for another 10 minutes. And so on.

As we go to press precious metal prices are at a 25 year high. Please be aware of this when bidding. If you are unsure of "melt value," we will be happy to give you this information.

NO BUYER'S FEE    (back to top)

We do not charge a buyer's fees in our sales. You are charged only for the amount of your winning bid, postage and shipping charges.

LOT VIEWING SCHEDULE   (back to top)

DENVER COIN EXPO. 18-21, National Western Complex, "Expo Hall", I-70 and Brighton Blvd., Denver CO. Thursday November 3rd is dealer set up day. Public hours are Friday and Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 3 PM. We will have most lots in the sale available for viewing at our bourse tables during all show hours. There are some bulk lots which we will bring only if specifically asked to. Please call us prior to the show to ensure that we bring the lots you want to see.

We plan to have the majority of the material in the sale in our office Monday through Friday except for the show dates mentioned above, until the close of the sale if you need more detailed description of any of the lots. However, please contact us as well in advance of the close of the sale as possible in order that we can provide you with as much information as possible. We will be happy to return your call if we cannot provide you with the information you require when you call, fax or email.

We will confirm all email bids received within 24 hours of receiving the bid. If you do not receive a confirmation please contact us. We have been deluged by spam as I'm sure many of you have also. Even though our filter separates most of the junk from the "real" mail, it does not do a perfect job, thus we ask that when sending us a bid or inquiring about the sale, please put "Bid" or "Mailbid Sale" in the subject line so we do not delete your email along with the junk we receive every day. We do not confirm mail or fax bids unless specifically asked to do so.

No information will be available about the results of the sale until all bids have been checked and invoices written. This should take about 4 days. We will not be answering the phone until that information is ready. We hope to be ready by Tuesday May 30th. Please note that May 29th is the Memorial Day holiday in the United States.

This catalog took us longer than most of those in the past. We bought a new computer and new software which took us longer to get comfortable with than we had anticipated. We both attended the Chicago International Coin Fair in the middle of preparing the catalog. That set us back five plus days. We did not have time to photograph all the lots we had hoped to. If there is an item that you would like to receive a photo of, please let us know and we will try to help. For the most part this is for single lots only.

HIGHLIGHTS OF AUCTION 36C   (back to top)

We've been working on this catalog for the better part of two months and frankly can't wait until it goes to the printer and we can take a few days off. So we will limit our discussion of the highlights to just a few paragraphs rather than pages and pages of listing.

Our ancient coin section has quality rarities from all aspects of ancient coins with the emphasis as usual on Judaean and Jewish related ancients. This includes selections from part two of the George Fisher collection as well as items from a collection from Israel. In addition we offer the beginning of a nice collection of pleasing, but not necessarily expensive Roman and Judaean coins. Much more from that collection will be in our Fall auction.

For those collectors of Paul Vincze material, or for those who want to start a collection, there are lots of medals from two different collections. It is perhaps our longest offering ever. If space permits we will try to list the lots of his material, if it doesn't please contact us for a listing. We also offer another selection of very rare Israel trade coins from what we believe is the archives of the ICI mint in Birmingham, England. The 2nd known 1949 1 Pruta Specimen coin in Proof as well as single lot offerings of 7 extremely rare Proof coins of 1949 and 1952. Some of these we've never even seen before.

Our World Paper section is one of the finest we've offered in our 35 years in the business. Three different Israel Specimen sets highlight that section which contains items from two advanced collections as well as a number of better Palestine notes. Another consignment consists of an incredible array of Specimens, Proofs and Color Trials from Africa, Latin America and the British Commonwealth. We also offer 3 notes from the Dachau Concentration Camp and 2 from the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.

Our Judaic section is highlighted by numerous rare medals both privately issued in the past 200+ years as well as numerous rare state medals and patterns from a very advanced collection. Plus our usual selection of paper items and Holocaust Memorabilia.

Medals by Paul Vincze are in Lots 413-416, 478-495, 649-650, 653-656, 658-659, 983-992, 1014-1017 and 1057

Items from the George Fisher collection are: 16, 19-21, 24, 26-27, 31-33, 41, 43, 46-49, 51, 55, 61, 63-64, 67-68, 71, 80, 83-86, 88-93,97-99, 101-103, 109, 114, 117, 125,127-128, 130, 134, 137-139, 143, 146-147,149, 154, 157,159-160,165-167, 170-171, 173-176, 179-181, 184, 186-189, 191, 193-194, 196, 199, 204, 206, 208-213,216, 219, 223, 225, 279, 283, 288-290, 296, 305,325,341, 360-362, 364, 366, 369, 371, 373, 379, 411, 435, 452, 537, 1128 and 1265.

WHY DO PEOPLE COLLECT THIS STUFF. Obviously people collect for different reasons, but most people seem to collect these items as teaching tools for use at home, in schools, synagogues and churches.

*1224 ---brakel. 1922. 2 mark anti-semitic notgeld. both the original blue note and the brown note which replaced it. the blue note depicts a man chained to a pillory which, according to sexually psychopathic streicher (who published the primitive anti-semitic die stuermer) personifies jewry. the notes were received with so much disfavor that they were quickly withdrawn and replaced by a note which has a row of houses in the background, which was seemingly less disgusting. the man is being punished for what is depicted on the other side, he holds his baby out the window while the baby defecates on an unsuspecting german. the rarer blue note is au-unc, while the replacement is vf-ef, but for a couple of tears. both have light (and easily erasable) pencil graffiti. $90+

(cause and consequences.) on the right side we see a plane dumping out lots of paper money over towns and cities and the year 1921. the meaning of this note is certainly clear. jews absconded with the hard money during wwi from austria and the result is the hyper inflation now infecting austria. we have never seen this set before. we understand it was also issued in green and black in addition to brown. 3 au-unc to unc notes. rare. $100+

*1231 ---hamburg 1920 50 pfennig. issued by the merkur institute of art. shows a well dressed aristocratic jew wearing a top hat, smoking a cigarette in a long holder while reading a newspaper. the message at left reads, "the polish jews, oy vay, oy vay, are all present as one man. he is reading in the paper that michel is the cure-all. now they want everything from germany for the new poland.". the reference to michel is germany as michel always represented germany and became a symbol for the poor long suffering german who was not going to take it anymore. in addition to the mockery of the cartoon and the text, the text also butchers the german language (or so i am told by more than one source). is this to make fun of the bad german of the jews? or perhaps it shows that the makers of the notes were illiterate rabble. see the shekel vol xvii, #4, page 26 where this note is listed but not pictured. one of the rarest of all german anti-semitic notgeld. the only other i recall offering is lot 1058 from our sale 34c which sold for $240, this is probably a bit nicer. vf-ef $150+

*1232 anti-semitic overprint. on german 1000 mark note of 1923. 8 line legend published by paul f. e. lange of quedlinburg am harz proclaiming that the jew's time is coming (and not the good time), place your trust in hitler, with 2 swastikas. i'm not sure if i've seen this overprint before. vf $100+?
