Albania - 1927-V 20-Franga NGC MS-64.

153The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$280.00
Australia - 1858 3-Pence, holed.
New World Estate. We attribute as KM#116.3 (consignor states 116.1), which makes this a very scarce piece of unknown mintage. Holed, but XF details nonetheless and still quite valuable.
154The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$280.00
Austria - Salzburg 1624 thaler XF.
KM#87. Handsomely centered with a pleasing strike all the way to the outer edge of each side. Delightfully smooth dove-grey toning prevails, affected by no problems whatsoever.

156The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$800.00
Canada - Partial set of 50-cents in two Library of Coins albums.
Albums for Part 1 and Part 2 of the 50-cents series for Canada date from 1870 through 1965, although several go missing. The following need to be added to complete the set: 1870, 1881-H, 1888,...

Canada - 1912, 1913, and 1914 $5 gold pieces, all NGC.
Mokhnenko's World Gold Collection, KM#26. NGC has certified the grades as follows: 1912 (AU-58), 1913 (AU-55), and 1914 (MS-61), which is somewhat fortuitous since the latter is actually key to this...

Canada - Near complete set of silver dollars in a Library of Coins...
Only two pieces are not present. 1955 Arnprior is missing, as is the 1951 (which is substituted with a 1948), but otherwise, all the dollars from 1935 through 1965 remain. Some of the earlier dates...
159The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$1,250.00
Canada - Cents, 5-cents, and 10-cents in three Library of Coins...
The first album is for cents and contains large cents commencing with 1858, though 1859/8, a couple of 1891s, and also absent are 1936 "with dot", as one might expect. 5-cent coins in the second...
160The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$625.00
Canada - 20-cents and 25-cents in two Library of Coins albums.
Most are in rather well circulated grade, with a couple worn down to the AG level. The best piece is probably 1892, which should be at or near the AU level. A very few later coins will also be in...

Canada - 1872-H 25c PCGS AU-55, and an 1872-H 50c NGC XF-45.

Canada - Prince Edward Island 1871 Specimen cent, and a circa 1860...
The 1871 Prince Edward Island cent warrants an ICCS grade of only (specimen) SP-60, probably on account of scribbled scratches left of the portrait. ICCS also states "upset dies". A circa-1860 token...
165The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$280.00
Canada - Ten Canadian coins, plus two bonus U.S. half-dollars.
Canada dominates this group but a couple of U.S. half-dollars add some interest. Leading off is a pair of tokens of unknown origin that appear to be modern replicas of vintage 19th century tokens. ...
166The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$390.00
Canada - Newfoundland - Three type coins certified by PCGS.
These are pleasing type coins for Newfoundland, all evidently original and reasonably bold for their respective grades. An 1885 cent has been graded AU-58 and shows superb chocolate-brown patina and...

Canada - 1902, 1906, and 1909 50-cents, all PCGS VF.
1902 (VF-35) shows faint lilac-grey patina, but the 1906 (VF-30) shows a lot of erratic coal-grey on the portrait. The 1909 (VF-25) features the most consistent dove-grey patina overall and therefore...
168The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$360.00
Canada - Three type coins graded by PCGS.
Ascending denominations represent different type coins from Canada, and all are circulated to some degree per PCGS. An 1891 "LDLL" cent (AU-50) ebony-brown patina with a dash of bronze-gold near the...

170The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$2,400.00

171The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$475.00
Canada - 1889 10-Cent NGC G-6.
KM#3. Key to the series in all grades, this example actually shows rather bold details for the low G-6 grade provided by NGC. A strictly original coin, each side displays simple, honest wear and zero...
172The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$140.00
Canada - 1875-H 5c NGC VG-8.
A difficult date in the series, this 1875-H features superbly original graphite-grey patina and boldly outlined major devices. A tiny scratch off to the lower right has no relevance at this grade...
173The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$475.00
Canada - 1881-H 50c NGC XF-45.
Delightful quality overall, with zero marks noticeable without high magnification. Detail highpoints show creme-grey accents over dove colored surfaces, and tantalizing luster emanates inward from...
174The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$310.00
Canada - 1864 small 6 New Brunswick 5c silver NGC AU details/surface...
Verdant-blue overall with deep shades of navy iridescence. The NGC "hairlines" disclaimer serves little purpose since those present evidently amount to nothing more than incidental contact.
175The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$425.00
Canada - Newfoundland - 1888 10c NGC AU-50.
Obvious album toning affects the rims and places a bit of darker honey-gold onto the obverse left edge. Lightly sparkling luster emanates from both sides.
176The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$150.00
Canada - Newfoundland - 1890 10c NGC AU-53.
Beige overall with golden tone towards the rim, except for a small blue patch near 11:00. Some limited luster can readily be found on both sides.
177The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$1,000.00
Canada - 1870 Half-Dollar, L.C.W., NGC AU-55.
KM#6. The inaugural date for the series in Canada. Thick, rich creme-grey patina thoroughly dominates the visual characteristics, ceding to low-contrast smoky color on the high points. An amazingly...
178The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$210.00
Canada - 1874-H large date, crosslet 4 5c NGC UNC details/surface...
The consignor carried this piece in his collection as a simple AU, but NGC has placed an UNC/surface hairlines assessment on the slab. Where else would hairlines occur? Internally? At any rate,...
179The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$850.00
Canada - 1914 $10 PCGS MS-62 (shield).
KM#27. Key to this short-lived gold series, 1914 saw the highest mintage of the 1912-14 10-dollar pieces, but evidently the lowest survival rate. Examples in grades higher than MS-62 are quite...
180The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$390.00
Canada - 1891 Cent, small leaves, small date NGC MS-63.
KM#7. Rich dark-chocolate brown with very faint tinges of almond or charcoal toning hidden in the recesses. Sweeping over each side with a loupe reveals strong pinpoint details everywhere.
181The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$320.00
Canada - 1889 5c NGC MS-63.
KM#2. One of the semi-keys to the series, 1889 becomes substantially difficult to locate in better grades such as the present NGC MS-63. Listed mintage of 1.2-million pieces belies the scarcity,...
182The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$350.00
Canada - 1921 10-cent PCGS MS-64.
KM#23a. Lovely silver-white overall with pleasing grey-blue tone that drifts toward the lower edges. The reverse boasts even deeper hues towards its lower and side margins.
183The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$722.00
Canada - 1900 small date 5c NGC MS-66.
KM#2. A very few examples of 1900 "small date" do exist in very high grade, yet one can scarcely imagine an example more pleasing than this NGC MS-66. True, the "oval zeroes" is the more common...
184The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$210.00
China - four dollar sized coins.
New World Estate. A quartet of dollar-sized Chinese coins are offered here with equivalent western dates. They list as: 1908 (Fine/lightly cleaned), 1914 (Fine, small rim bump), 1934 (AU), and...

China - Eight silver 5 Yuan Auspicious Matters coins.
All remain in capsules that ensure integrity and maintain the near-perfection of the brilliant silver format. Eight coin lot.

191The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$575.00
Czechoslovakia - 1932 Ducat (KM-X12) Uncirculated.
New World Estate. Much better than the more common Czech gold ducat types, the KM#X12 should command a strong premium in NGC MS-64. Lovely butterscotch patina graces the surfaces, though the obverse...
192The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$260.00
France - Two silver coins.
New World Estate. First is a silver gros attributed to Ville Metz, and from the 14th to 16th century. The other is a 1711/0-A 3-couronnes KM#380.1 (per consignor) with adjustment marks. Two coin...

Germany - Austria - 1614 2-thaler, XF.
New World Estate. The quality is positively amazing for this Austria 1614 2-thaler (double-thaler), which should easily grade XF or better, and shows gorgeous lavender-grey patina. We attribute this...
