Click to View PDF

Our sale #325, November 15th & 16th is chocked full of goodies!  We again have strong cover lots including ad covers, a rare Wiley Post flight cover, Locals, Naval, FDCs (U.S. & WW), postcards, but quite possibly the best is a huge collection of hand painted ship commissioning’s (nearly all Weigand).  There are also nice Russian covers, WW Airmails, Zepps and many more accumulations and large groups.

Our U.S. section is strong with many good singles, collections and accumulations.  There are some great larger lots, the most interesting being a group of Officials that includes sheets, part sheets, large multiples and much NH.

This sale has a multitude of classic collector coins including the Indian Cents of 1877 and 1909-S, as well as a full set of Washington Quarters 1932-2009, and a fine selection of Carson City Morgan Dollars.  Among the gold coins, there is a 1901-S Half Eagle graded PCGS MS63, plus 5 Double Eagles both Liberty and St. Gaudens designs, and a wide selection of modern Gold Eagles.  Collectors of paper money will have quite a few to choose from including several early Legal Tenders, Red Seals, and two Gold Certificates.  In short, the material in Auction 325 is broad enough to have something for every different type of numismatic enthusiast.

The WW section is just packed w/ singles, sets, country groups, accumulations and more!  Too much to list and difficult to highlight because there is so much of value and great variety! I hope you find something good for your collection or business!
