Bidding in an auction can be a fun and rewarding experience. This is particularly true of floor auctions, held around the world, where bidders compete for items through a variety of bidding options. While these options vary from auction house to auction house, most collectors can bid in auctions by being at the venue, bidding online, bidding by phone, placing a book bid prior to the auction, or having a representative bid for them at the auction. Each of the methods has its pros and cons, and in this article we will take a look at each of the various… Full article at the source>

VISIT LEGEND AND LEGEND AUCTIONS AT OUR TABLE 643 IN BALTIMORE

NICE WEEK

We did not figure to do much business this past week. Adding it all up-we certainly did do much more then expected. And we had our usual Friday afternoon Sale (the $1 1864 PCGS PR65 CAC). For whatever reason Fridays at 3-4 PM we do a bigger sale of some kind.

Very interesting what sold. Certainly soup to nuts. Of course we sold several better gold coins including several better $10 Indians. What really surprised us was the fact we sold Patterns. We’re happy to see Patterns are… Full article at the source>

When the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo takes place at the end of March, it will, as always, feature an estimable array of collectible coins and paper money. Stack’s Bowers Galleries will hold a series of auctions, and its “Rarities Night” will, as usual, offer up a host of beautiful coins. Among those that are not “as usual” will be a 1913 Lincoln cent in nearly flawless condition—in fact, at MS-67 RD, it is the finest certified example of that year.

Dipped: Know the Tell-Tale Signs

February 28, 2017 in Antique Coins, Coins, Coins for sale, Collecting, Copper, Copper Coins, E-commerce, Ebay, Education, Morgan Silver Dollars, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Pennies, Rare Coins, Silver Coins, USA Coins

By: Michael Bugeja News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

Increasingly on Proxibid, HiBid, and eBay, I am encountering dipped coins, making me wary about placing any bids, even on Morgan dollars like this 1902 one depicted above. That’s not how a 115-year-old silver coin is supposed to look, unless it was broken out of a bank roll, in which case the seller would have offered more than one in this condition.

This coin was expertly dipped, meaning it still may slab at PCGS or NGC.

You can buy dips at coin shops, at shows, and online. Each dealer or expert hobbyist has his or her formula, usually diluted with… Full article at the source>

Rare Tipu coins to be auctioned this weekend

February 20, 2014 in Ancient Coins, Antique Coins, Auctions, Coins, Collecting, History, Indian Coins, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Rare Coins, Silver, Silver Coins, World Coins

By: Special Correspondent. February 19, 2014  (http://www.thehindu.com/)

Extremely rare and unique silver coins issued by Tipu Sultan will come under the hammer in Bangalore this weekend as a Silver Double Coin, also called as “Haidari”, and a half Anna, have been put on the block by a Delhi-based collector.

These two coins are among many other rare coins from the collectors’ kitty that will be auctioned during the three-day National Numismatic Exhibition, organised by the Bangalore-based auction house Marudhar Arts, starting from Friday.

The “Haidari”, which weighs 23 grams, according to Rajendra Maru of the auction house, has come for auction in India for the first time in several decades. “The last time we heard about the coin was some years back when a fake Haidari was in circulation. There are less than 100 such coins known to be with collectors,” he added. It is being auctioned with a base price of Rs. 1.5 lakh.

The Haidari was issued on March 16, 1790 by Tipu Sultan in honour of his father Hyder Ali. The coin minted in Srirangapatna was equivalent to 32 copper coins. The other coin issued by Tipu Sultan is an extremely rare half Anna silver coin issued in 1785 that weighs just half a gram and is 7.33 mm in size.

Note to investors: not all money will make money

February 19, 2014 in Auctions, Bank Notes, Coins, Investing, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Rare Coins, World Coins

By: James Cockington. February 19th, 2014 (http://www.smh.com.au/) Sidney Money Herald (Australia)

Rare coins and stamps are now an established asset class, increasingly popular among those with self-managed superannuation funds. Coins were nominated as the third-best-performing asset on a December 2013 Deutsche Bank list – increasing by 60 per cent in value since July 2007. Rare violins (133 per cent) and gold (91 per cent) were the two top performers.

Banknotes, it appears, are yet to be accepted in this blue-chip category.

Two Saturdays ago, several prime examples were included in the numismatic auction held by Roxbury’s Auction House at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Brisbane.
