Lot Title: China - Macau - 100 Patacas Pattern, Grand Prix with ads - BU
Lot Number: 91
Description: K&S Consignment. KM# 10a. Mintage: 1000. Some sources state the mintage as 610 pieces, but a letter shown to the cataloger was written by Barney L. Phillip (President of Phillips Mint of America) states that in fact, 1000 pieces were struck.

"In addition we struck 1,000 cupro-nickle (sp) coins with a face value of 100 Pataca which were struck for the Government to circulate. However at the last minute, actually the day before the Grand Prix, the Governor decided not to circulate the 1,000 coins and we took them off the market.//They are perhaps more in demand for numismatic collectors then (sp) the Proof coins, but the fact is, none have been offered on the market and none can legally be represented to be a coin of the realm, a circulated or un-circulated coin."

This lot may contain an item not certified by ANACS, PCGS, or NGC. While Scotsman Auction Co. is typically conservative in our descriptions of items not certified by one of these companies, we cannot guarantee our grading estimation will match their grade. We highly recommend that collectors seeking items certified by a third-party grading service only bid on items that have already been certified. No lot can be returned because of a variance in judgment with regards to grade.
