​After having a very successful year in 1976, the market seemed to want to keep growing, as people saw coin values going up. While 1977 opened with a slow start in January, enthusiasm grew and the hobby became very active. This was helped by prominent cabinets coming on the market, as certain collectors either passed away or decided they were getting too old to continue. This cycle of excellent material coming up for auction and encouraging new collectors to increase their participation, created a market that was dynamic and exciting.

​No specific documentation has ever been found detailing the origins of the enigmatic Continental "dollar.” The vast majority of surviving examples were struck in pewter, although a few silver and brass impressions are also known. These interesting early American pieces are very popular and always attract attention when we offer one at auction.

​In the world of medallic art, France may come to mind for its association with some of the most skilled and elegant craftsmen and their work, especially during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Any survey of medals and coins from this period will show the beauty that the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements provided to the numismatic scene. However, production of artistic medals was not limited to France. Although Sweden is not as often represented in collections and literature devoted to numismatic art, it is not due to a lack of exceptional material produced by incredible sculptor/engravers.
