Welcome to the March 2020 Auction, U.S. Coins and Exonumia Sessions

​Welcome to our main United States coins catalog for the March 2020 Auction.
There is an old saying: “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it.” In a way this
is relevant now. Whatever your specialty or passion is in American coins, the
chances are excellent that we have multiple pieces for you. These vary from
popular issues to notable rarities, with just about everything in between!

The Fairmont Collection
showcases Liberty Head double eagles—one of the most popular gold coin
specialties. Of the many issues minted from 1850 to 1907, fewer than a dozen
are major rarities. Offered here is a very wide selection—ideal if you are
beginning this series and equally important if you are filling in your “want

Richard Jewell, one of
America’s leading connoisseurs, is a familiar name as over the years we have
handled multiple consignments from him. This consignment features an impressive
selection of rare United States medals, with a focus on those created for the
Assay Commission. The 1905 Theodore Roosevelt inauguration medal by
Augustus Saint-Gaudens is one of the most famous and most desired in the
inaugural medal series. “Teddy” Roosevelt had a mind of his own and rejected
the official medal made by Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber.  Beyond these
are the Assay Commission medals and other pieces—all ranging from very rare to
extremely rare.

In the pages to follow
are many “type” coins from the Macon Collection, complementing those in our
Rarities Night catalog. Similarly, there are many important coins from the E.
Horatio Morgan Collection. Rarity and high quality are combined. Other
consignments include a classic 1652 Pine Tree shilling. “If just one coin
could be chosen to represent American numismatics, which would you choose?” is
a question posed to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., Ken Bressett, and Dave Bowers, and
each chose this coin! Other colonial and early American coins include many
seldom-seen varieties.

Into the federal
series, our wide offering of copper, nickel, silver, and gold coins will
attract attention and bids from all directions. Indeed, this is a very diverse and
high-quality sale that will provide significant opportunities for many
numismatists to add to their cabinets or to begin a whole new specialty.

We invite you to
participate and take part in numismatic history.
