WE HAVE MOVED   (back to top)

Please note that after 30 years of living in the foothills of Colorado at 8200 feet we have declared Mother Nature the winner and have moved to what we hope will be a kinder and gentler Littleton, Colorado where the elevation is only about 5500 feet. The last late April blizzard where we received over 30 inches of snow in 12 hours was the final straw. We lost a half dozen trees, our power and water for a day and a half and nearly our sanity.

Our new address and our new phone and fax numbers are printed on the cover, on the inside cover and on the bid sheet. We will also mention it here in the event you misplace all three. Our address is P. O. Box 785, Littleton, CO 80160-0785, Our new phone is 720-981-0785 and our new Fax is 720-981-5345. And yes, the last 3 digits of our phone number is the same as our P. O. Box. And, no, we didn’t plan it that way.

The move was much more strenuous and stressful than we had thought and thus this auction is smaller than we had planned. We still have boxes and cartons of both numismatic material and literature that have yet to be unpacked. While packing to move here I had put aside two or three cartons of books and important auction catalogs that I either had more than one or found that I didn’t use. These were going to be included in a large numismatic literature section in this catalog. I have yet to find those cartons.

In addition time constraints made it necessary to limit the number of photos in the printed version of the catalog. If an item has an asterisk (*) preceding the lot number and you can’t find the picture in the “hard copy” of the catalog, please check our website at www.rosenblumcoins.com. You should be able to find a color image there. If not please let us know. We do apologize for the inconvenience. We began writing this catalog a week after moving here but the writing part took twice as long as we spent half our time looking for an elusive reference book or in some cases even mundane items like coin holders.








BIDDING IN OUR MAILBID SALE   (back to top)

We will stop taking bids at 9:00 PM on November 15th 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 to check on your 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.

We take seriously the commitment to reduce bids. 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.

When we started writing this catalog the price of gold was around $650 an ounce, today it is over $730. I have no idea if it will be higher or lower when the sale closes. 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, plus postage and shipping charges.








LOT VIEWING SCHEDULE   (back to top)

DENVER COIN EXPO. November 1-4, National Western Complex, “Expo Hall”, I-70 and Brighton Blvd., Denver CO.Thursday November 1st 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 and numismatic literature 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 bidsunless 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 three or four days. We will not be answering the phone until that information is ready. We hope to be ready by Monday November 19th or Tuesday November 20th. Our office will be closed during the Thanksgiving Holiday from Wednesday evening until the following Monday.

Please note that this entire catalog is also up on our website at www.rosenblumcoins.com. There you will find not only everything in this catalog, but also not only more pictures but pictures of all the items are in color as well. If the images are not up on our site when you receive this catalog they should be soon.








HIGHLIGHTS OF AUCTION 37D   (back to top)

I always have good intentions of writing a detailed listing of the highlights of each auction, but as I begin writing this section I realize that I have just spent six weeks writing the catalog and I don’t want to do it again. So we’ll settle for a couple a few paragraphs of highlights

The Judaean section is highlighted by selections from parts of a collection acquired this past summer which contains numerous rare and high grade Herodian coins as well as a number of better city coins. In many cases we have listed who the previous owner purchased the coin from and when he purchased the coin. In addition one of the nicest Jewish War Shekels is offered as well as a very heavy and pedigreed large Bar Kochba bronze coin.

The Greek and Greek Imperial sections are highlighted by numerous coins from the Stephen Smith collection. Steve was a serious collector of ancient coins from Idaho who was a regular participant at the ANA Summer Seminar who passed away far too early in 2002. While there are selections from throughout the Greek world his main interest was Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt and we offer our largest selection of those popular coins ever. There are also a few gold coins listed in this section so check carefully.

While the Roman and Byzantine sections don’t contain many rarities there are numerous attractive and inexpensive examples of these coins as well as a few rare and/or high grade ones thrown in. We also should mention a rare Arab-Byzantine piece from Tiberias as well as four gold items from the famous Howard Gibbs collection which we have listed at the end of the ancient section.

In the world coin section gold coins are listed throughout under the issuing country. We have many rare and low mintage modern African gold coins in this section as well as a few Israeli rarities, some rare Palestine tokens, numerous better crowns, minors and medals and even a few US coins that found their way to us.

The world paper section is highlighted by some very high grade notes from Buchenwald Concentration Camp, very rare Proofs and Trials from Israel and as perhaps the world’s finest collection of barter notes from US occupied post World War II Germany. 27 of the 31 notes listed by Schwan and Boling in World War II Remembered including all six plate notes are being offered.

Part Two, the Judaic section, as usual contains a fantastic array of Jewish related medals, tokens and paper items. In addition to some rare early medals including Weiner’s famous Cologne synagogue medal we have probably our best offering of modern medals most of which have beome quite scarce.

*953 extraordinary nazi germany “j” jude id card. 1939. the special gray fabric id cards were printed after the nazi law that forced all jews to add israel or sara as their middle names. the law was passed on 17 august 1938. this card was issued to 67 year old therese sara lehr on 30 may 1939. she had been born in 1872 and was now living in vienna. it was valid for 5 years. her photo seems to depict an expression of both pride and contempt presumably what an decent elderly lady would feel after being subjected to this experience which included prominently exposing her left ear as part of the nazi racial theory that jews could be recognized because their left ear is markedly different from the left ear of aryans. the card shows her fingerprints, numerous handstamps and her signature which includes her new middle name. issued by the vienna police and signed and handstamped on their behalf. there is a large j imprinted both on the front cover as well as the inside front cover. since this therese lehr was 67 and was of no use to the nazi war effort, she was chosen to be an early evacuee to the east. her card shows a large 2 line handstamp ‘evakuiert am 23 okt. 1941”. another handstamp (perhaps too faint to be seen in the scan, but definitely visible to the naked eye) reads “gestorben (died) litzmannstadt getto” as well as 2 numbers “9131” and “42” in red ink. the outer front cover has a boxed red handstamp reading archive in hebrew and arch. no. in latin letters. vf and exceedingly rare. a “non evacuated” card sold for $1100 in our march sale!. this is no doubt much scarcer! $1000+


*954 sheet of 8 yellow “jude” stars or badges. in some areas of nazi control jews were required to make their own armband or badge, while in other areas mass produced yellow badges were made by the authorities and given to the jewish community with orders that they be distributed immediately. we sold this sheet to the consignor in the fall of 1995. if i remember correctly the person that i purchased the sheet of badges from had made a very large donation to yad vashem and was given the opportunity to take this sheet for his contribution. extremely rare, it has been more than 10 years since i’ve seen a sheet of stars. $2500+


*955 drohobycz ghetto judenrat extraordinary document. nd (1943). a listing of 29 pieces of property in the jewish ghetto of drohobycz, on the official letterhead of the judenrat, which require the removal of debris of the ruined or damaged houses. this document shows (on both sides) the names and addresses of the new owners of the stolen property which included poles, ukrainians and city officials. the galician city (now in the ukraine) was annexed to the ussr following the 1939 nazi-soviet pact that partitioned poland. in early july 1941 it was captured by the nazis and the first pogrom was held almost immediately. more than 300 jews were murdered followed by a mass kidnap of jews for forced labor. the local ghetto was founded in the fall of 1942 included about 10,000 jews many from nearby towns as well as drohobycz, the liquidation of the ghetto started the next spring and thousands were murdered either in the nearby bronica forest or after being sent to the extermination camp at belzec. the document itself has rust stains, pencil and pen notations and wear and tear. it is an unusual example of the “official” takeover of jewish properties after the rightful owners were evacuated. included with this lot is article about the ghetto and letter from a ghetto survivor from an internet site. $850+


*956 dutch holocaust rarity. november 1941. offical amsterdam joodsche raad (dutch judenrat) document certifying that dr. d. hausdorff had paid his required taxes. issued by the department for support and social welfare work. with circular handstamp of the judenrat, second provisional levy commission for monetary management. the various taxes, fees and levies imposed by the judenrat were used to finance its large apparatus and a certificate such as this had to be presented before any service was given. a few repaired tears, otherwise vf. full english translation included. a rare early document. english translation included. $500


*957 ---july 1942. on official amsterdam judenrat stationary (watermarked paper!) of the jewish center for job training issued to the same dr. david hausdorff as mentioned in the above document. this declares that dr. hausdorff was a member of the judenrat staff and is signed by a.m. cohen, the director of the center. a work certificate was essential as unemployed jews were sent by the nazis to special “labor camps”. a full english translation is included. $550+


*958 ---august 1942. on official amsterdam judenrat stationary a typed document given to dr. hausdorff stating that “he, as a co-worker of the jewish council...has permission of the (nazi) security police...to move freely outside your home...and in the streets...” presumably a pass to be out after curfew. signed by dr. hk. cohen, with a nazi handstamp of the security police and sd (the infamous ss of himmler) at left. a jew found out after curfew was usually shot on the spot so these were highly prized. with full english translation included! $650+


*959 ---september 1942. an official printed document, in both german and dutch, issued by the center for jewish emigration, amsterdam. this document orders dr. hausdorff to appear before the center on october 8th, along with his wife and children, to attest that he is exempt from work. he is ordered to bring his (and his family’s) passport, id card, marriage license, birth certificates and other documents to support his exemption from work. the letter also serves as a travel permit for that day. this document was part of the nazi deportation plan to extradite all unemployed jews to westerbork, on route to the death camps in the east. with english translation included. in our sale 36c (lot #1251) we sold a later version of this document for $850. $850


*960 ---july 1943. official international red cross inquiry form with message sent from the jewish agency in jerusalem to dr. hausdorff and his family in amsterdam. the typed message on this form letter (in english!) states that “you have been registered on the exchange list for immigration in palestine”. a pencil manuscript notes that the letter (?) has been redirected upon arrival. this is a rare example of the continuous attempt by the jewish agency to try to rescue prominent jewish leaders by placing their names on a list of exchange to try to “trade” them for german templars and other german civilians interned by the british. in more than a few cases being placed on this “exchange list” prevented the deportation to the death camps in the east. highly unusual and rare. and dr. hausdorff survived! $180+


*961 litzmannstadt receipt. an unused and blank receipt with space for the receipt number, name and address and on the right, the amount in marks and pfennigs, issued by the der aelteste der juden in litzmannstadt abt. f9fr die eingesiedelten. also included in this lot is a 50 pfg notgeld from licthenstein-lassenberg with an image of a jew as the devil. two items, the first likely rare. $50+

*963 nazi hunter’s successful chase. 1971. a typed letter signed by the famed nazi hunger tuvia friedman (who tracked down eichmann) on the official letterhead of institute of documentation in israel for the investigation of nazi war crimes: the world jewish federation of victims of the nazi regime. this letter, addressed to a researcher of the ministry of education is in regard to the nazi war criminal helmut rauca who worked in the kaunas (lithuania) ghetto. friedman reports about their interest in rauca and about being denied access to the finding from the tel aviv police, war crimes department. the case against rauca was overwhelming. he was the first canadian citizen to be charged with war crimes during the holocaust. he had arrived in canada in 1950 and misspelled his name as rauak, apparently enough to not raise a red flag for many years. he was eventually captured in toronto in 1982 and was charged with the murder of 11, 584 jewish men, women and children. after a series of appeals he was extradited to frankfurt where he died in october 1963 while awaiting trial. the letter comes with the original envelope as well as comprehensive data about friedman and rauca in hebrew and english from various websites. $150+
