Weblist 42C: March 2012

Download PDF version of this list.

Our March list is being prepared just before we leave for 10 days in Arizona and California for some rest and relaxation. Although visiting our 2 and 5 year old grandchildren will probably be neither restful or relaxing but we are looking forward to it. We've only been able to photograph a small portion of the coins thus if you see something priced at $25 or over that is not photographed please let us know and we will make every effort to send you either a digital image or a scan.

This list contains numerous nice coins from ancient Judaea and Rome as well as modern and medieval coins from around the globe. Among the Judaean coins are new purchases plus a few items that sold in our recent auction but the winning bidder has been unable to pay for. His loss and someone else's gain. In addition the Roman section includes not only some more Antoniniani from the Antioch mint from the mid 3rd century but also a very nice and very rare Fisci Ivdaici Sestertius of Nerva. By the time this list is out the results of the Shoshana collection of ancient Jewish coins will be history and many of the coins we list will seem very cheap.

Our world section is highlighted by 10 Dutch Lion Dollars (among the first coins used in Colonial America) as well a 3 coins from the Spainish Netherlands. Throughout the list almost every coin that we have listed previously has seen it's price drastically reduced.

These lists are done quickly and aren't checked very thoroughly for spelling, punctuation or formatting errors. We do apologize for that but we are a two person firm with not enough time on our hands. This seems to be the only way we can get these lists out on a consistent basis with a mix of coins in all prices ranges.
