The Ostheimer sealed-bid auction will be held at the Florida United Numismatists Convention in Tampa. Its closing date is Jan. 7.

The Ostheimer Collection consists of more than 70 plate coins in the original Hibler & Kappen book published in 1963.

The sealed bid auction in Tampa will include many scarce medals struck by coin dealer Thomas Elder in the early 1900s. Rarities include a 1826 silver U.S. Semi-Centennial medal, a complete run of the rare 1909 Hudson-Fulton Celebration Elder medals and extensive groupings of the Veteran Corps of Artillery and the Elder Taft & Wilson “Gold Basis” dollars of 1908. Many are graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation in the range of MS-65 to MS-67.

For more information on either sale, visit Shevlin’s website at www.so-calleddollar.com, call (916) 955-2569 or send an e-mail to socalledguy@hotmail.com.
