Spink to Auction Part II of the Gerald W. Jackson Collection of British Pennies
Spink USA will auction the second part of the Gerald W. Jackson Collection of British Pennies during its Collector's Series Sale on June 17, 2014 in New York. The finale of the Jackson Collection, some 82 lots, made up primarily of Victorian Pennies, is marked by many great prizes, selected both for superior grade and rarity.
Featured in the collection is one of the finest known examples of the very rare 1882 Penny (lot 1053), graded NGC MS 64 RB and estimated at $12,000-16,000. Other Victorian rarities include an 1862/1662 Penny, graded NGC MS 64 RB (lot 1019), estimated at $6,000-8,000; a Choice 1861 Heavy Flan Penny, Freeman 23 (lot 1016) and an 1869 Penny, graded NGC MS 64 RB (lot 1028) - both estimated at $4,000-5,000 each.
Estimate: $12,000 - $16,000
Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000
Estimate: $4,000 - $5,000
Estimate: $4,000 - $5,000
The star of the post-Victorian issues is an extraordinarily rare 1908 Matte Proof Penny of Edward VII (lot 1071), only 3 pieces are recorded. Graded NGC PF 65 BN MATTE, it is estimated at $10,000-15,000. "This is a remarkable offering," said Gregory J. Cole, Spink Senior Numismatist for World Coins. "The first part of the Jackson Collection, which we sold this past January, did extremely well and we expect the finale to receive an equally enthusiastic response."
Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000
Other world highlights of the sale include the "Christian J. Buys Study Collection of the Brooke Rajahs of Sarawak" and a German New Guinea 5 Mark, 1894 A, graded PCGS MS 64. Additionally, world currency collectors will find an extensive offering of world paper money large lots. Meanwhile, Spink's sale of the "Forest Park Collection" the next day, June 18, in New York, while driven by important U.S. rarities, also features a rewarding array of foreign coinage. This includes a run of early Vatican City Mint Sets with gold, a very rare Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel Broad 5 Taler, 1609, and Monaco Essai and Essai Piefort issues in gold from 1943-1950.
