NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle will hold an auction of Coins, Bank Notes and Postage Stamps on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 10am. The sale showcases United States and World coins, bank notes, and stamps, including many rarities. United States material in these sales comprises a wide assortment from early coins and bank notes and Territorial examples through the 20th century.
United States Peace dollars of 1921 to 1935 were issued without Congressional sanction under the terms of the Pittman Act and were considered commemorative coins, with a relatively small amount of 1,939,000 produced for this date. Most examples are found in lower grades, so the 1926 Mint State 66 example in the sale is a rare exception (est. $1,500-2,000).
The United States 1857 Perforated issues are highly collectible, especially the very rare Type 1a, as example of which is a highlight of the postage stamps (est. $3,000-5,000). Differentiated by the loss of detail on the top ornaments and outer lines, this elusive stamp is only found on the bottom rows of Plate 4. Mortimer Neinken, author of The United States One Cent Stamps of 1851 to 1861, states that this anomaly affected only 18 positions on the printing of 200 stamps.
Military Payment Certificates were issued to U.S. military and certain civilian personnel from the end of World War II to 1973 for the purpose of minimizing black market trafficking in occupied areas and around military establishments. The sale offers a $20 note of 1972 of exceptional quality and rarity -- most were either lost or destroyed (est. $800-1,200).
A group of Korean War-era memorabilia of General B.M. Bryan, Commander of 24th Infantry Division Korea, features a stylized Key to The City of Seoul presented to him by Mayor Tai Sun Kim, with a handwritten note of appreciation. The lot also includes two Medals, two Zippo lighters with company emblems, and other memorabilia (est. $500-1,000).
