Over the years, our readers have periodically told us that they enjoy seeing stories about beautiful pieces that can be found in moderate price ranges. While it’s fun to read about great rarities fetching exceptional prices, it doesn’t help the average collector in their personal pursuits.
So I always look for interesting and useful parts stories at affordable levels and try to report back where possible. Last week, the folks at Stephen Album Rare Coin sent a perfect match for such a story.
SARC holds several large live auctions each year, but also has many internet auctions that have coins, books, and bundled lots of items entrusted to them, which is perfect for the average collector. These Internet auctions always offer me something interesting and lots of coins that allow me to learn new areas of study.
SARC will hold its Internet 12 auction at its Santa Rosa, Calif., Offices on November 1, 2021. Internet pre-auctions have started and are accessible through their website at www.sarc.auction. The auction consists of 1,250 lots of ancient, Islamic, Chinese, Indian and general world coins, and ethnographic coins. The highlighted groups include a number of collections, which to me means beautiful pieces that the average collector can afford to purchase.
Take a look at the list of collections included in the SARC 12 Internet Auction and you might see some names you recognize at coin shows or club events:
• Jess Yockers collection of coins from the Sikh Empire
• Charles Opitz collection of ethnographic money
• A large collection of Anatolian and Ottoman pieces
• Shawn Hamilton collection of Chinese coins
• Dr. Allan Pacela collection of Chinese coins
• A selection of classified VIP proof of registration documents
SARC is now taking shipments for its auction 42, which will be held January 20-22, 2022.
To concern World coins news and the Tuesday newsletter for a preview of Auction 42 later this year.
