I like the coin and the provenance.
The coin you are offering is not in my area of interest @Brian Bucklan - but your offer is most generous and it’s provenance is wonderful - thank you for contributing to the furtherance of our great hobby.
Lot 308 sold for $110. Winners of lots were given the paper tags as shown but, I believe, without lot numbers filled in. I have seen some of these tags with catalog numbers of the coin (Sydenham, as I recall) and quite a few that were sold with coins that do not belong to that number probably due to people mixing up which coin came with which tag. I consider this coin quite appropriate to be part of lot 308 but there really is no way that it can be proven. The sale catalog included eleven plates showing the finest coins of the collection. I have never seen one of those illustrated coins. I bought the two I have, both Roman bronzes from group lots (many coins were lotted in groups of two to these two of 43 coins), from a dealer who bought them from the original bidder. I would love to see (own, even!) a JQA coin that was illustrated in the catalog.
This is a great giveaway. I wish you all good luck and do not request inclusion in the contest.
oh, and “I’m interested”
Thanks Doug. I did a quick web search to find info about that lot but I didn't find much. It now appears the tag and coin almost certainly go together. I also suspect a large percentage of coins and tags from this auction have separated over the last 50 years.
As to the giveaway, at 9pm tonight I'll pick the winner of the coin. Good luck to all.
Thanks, Brian. If you've the time, would you consider providing more details on where you obtained this lot of coins?
Have a terrific day!
I'm interested very much
