Written by Greg Cohen, Professional Numismatist and Consignment Director, US and World Coins
As the New Year approaches, the eyes of world and ancient coin collectors are focused on the exciting, 43rd Annual New York International Numismatic Convention. Our consignment directors and catalogers have put together one of the most significant offerings of ancient and world numismatics for this year’s sale. Six live auction sessions, as well as an internet session, presented in two catalogs, will capture the attention of the numismatic community, and will generate significant bidding activity. This article will cover the first catalog, which features ancient and world coins, as well as orders and decorations, and world paper currency. My article next week will be focused on the second catalog, which is dedicated to the Robert O. Ebert Collection of Roman Coins. The coins highlighted in this article are just selections from thousands of numismatic items that await their turn at the auction block.
