Stephen Album Rare Coins Offers Collections in Internet Auction 12

Collecting Proof of Record issues can be a great way to acquire outstanding examples of common circulating types. This Proof 63 British Caribbean Territories 5 cent from 1964 is estimated right around $100.

We have heard from our readers periodically over the years that they appreciate seeing some stories on nice coins that can be found in moderate price ranges. While it’s fun to read about great rarities achieving outstanding prices, that does not aid the average collector in their personal pursuits.

So I always look for interesting and useful stories on coins at affordable levels and try to report on these whenever possible. This past week the folks at Stephen Album Rare Coin send in a perfect match for such a story.

SARC holds several big live auctions each year, but they also offer many Internet Auctions which contain coins, books, and group lots of items that are consigned to them, which are perfect for the average collector. These Internet auctions always provide something of interest for me and many coins which allow me to educate myself in new areas of study.

SARC will hold its Internet Auction 12 at its offices in Santa Rosa, California on Nov. 1, 2021. Internet pre-bidding has begun and can be accessed through their website at www.sarc.auction. The Auction is made up of an even 1,250 lots of Ancient, Islamic, Chinese, Indian, and General World Coins, and Ethnographic Money. Highlighted groups include a number of collections, which for me means nice coins that the average collector can afford to buy.

Take a look at the list of the collections included in SARC Internet Auction 12 and you may see some names you recognize from coin shows or club events:

• Jess Yockers Collection of Sikh Empire Coins

• Charles Opitz Collection of Ethnographic Money

• A Large Collection of Anatolian & Ottoman Coins

• Shawn Hamilton Collection of Chinese Coins

• Dr. Allan Pacela Collection of Chinese Coins

• A Selection of Graded VIP Proof of Record Coins

This Kris Dagger from Java is 44 centimeters in length, with a nice wavy blade and wooden handle. It’s an iconic weapon of Indonesia and Malaysia and is estimated between $80 and $120, with pedigree to the Charles Opitz Collection.
