Readers may enjoy a Preview of my upcoming FUN Show auction, Mail Bid Sale #53. Tim Osborne again provided an anchor consignment, lots 1-64. Tim's coins are noted for eye appeal; a great number carry CAC stickers. The remaining lots are rife with interesting and high-quality bust halves that include mint errors, a trio of Eliasberg pedigrees and rare die marriages. Written descriptions of the coins are underway but will not be posted until mid-December. Lance Keigwin's superb photos must suffice for now.
I did my best to limit consignments to 100 pieces. The current listing ends at lot 101. At the recent Baltimore show I was presented with a small group of lovely coins and could not resist the opportunity to include them in the auction. They are being photographed and should be posted on my web site in a week or so.
It will be a challenge to get the hard catalog printed and mailed during the holiday season. I welcome requests to preview lots now via overnight US Express Mail.
The following link should get you to the Auction Preview page of my web site:
