The development of coins predates 200 BC. The artistry and creative expertise continued into the United States, with examples offered beginning with a 1797 Draped Bust Silver Dollar (est. $7,000-8,000), an 1860 Liberty Seated Dollar Proof (est. $2,750-3,500) and a scarce date 1854-D $5 Liberty Head Half Eagle (est. $2,000-3,000). Take the time to examine the details of the workmanship of the coins, and you will appreciate the skill required to produce these miniature masterpieces.
With the arrival of Postage Stamps in 1840, a world-wide mail system began to flourish. The first United States stamp was printed in 1847, an example of which is offered on a folded letter, along with other issues through 1938 and a folded letter bearing a 5 cent blue stamp of the Confederacy written during the time of the Civil War. As countries were discovered or conquered we saw the rise of the British Empire, and offered is a fiscally used example of an 1895 10 Pound (est. $500-750) from former British Central Africa, today Malawi.
