PREMIUM LOTS - WORLD COINS - 1800's, 1900's, 2000's - COPPER, SILVER, COPPER NICKEL, MORE - A GIGANTIC ASSORTMENT OF COLLECTOR COINS. The person who accumulated the coins died approximately six years ago and while living, he travelled extensively and from his travels, he had managed to stash back 1000's and 1000's of world coins.Upon returning home, he never sorted them, just stored them in canvas bags and once the bags were full, he took them to one of several banks and placed them in secure bank vault lock boxes. Due to legalities, family squabbles, and a never ending court process, the coins had been the subject of probate for the last several years. Last month the executor accepted our offer. We were certainly excited, but then reality smacked us hard in the face.
NOW IT STARTED TO GET A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT. We were initially told that we had six weeks to remove the coins from the banks.
The coins were scattered throughout the state of Colorado in approximately thirteen different banks. But then about two weeks ago, we were informed that we had 72 hours to remove all of the coins. As we approached the deadline, we finally located and hired a armored car company to remove the coins and deliver them to us.
We had coins all over - in barrels, in large cans, in bags - we even had to resort to piling them on the floor. The dog loved it - as he would paw and dig at the pile - but we didn't necessarily enjoy his guarding techniques.He just scattered them more. There were coins from the 1800's, 1900's, 2000's silver coins, copper coins, copper nickel coins - and they were many, many different countries. It ended up being too many coins to list individually, so we decided to sell them in lots. This listing is for a five pound lot of the coins. These are truly premium lots. If the price seems high, remember, you get what you pay for. But do not complain when you are disappointed. REMEMBER, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Again, this lot is for a five pounds of mixed world coins. The coins range from average circulated to AU/BU.
The dates, countries, mint marks, and types of coins are our choice. Other than our initial assessment, we have not and will not search through the coins.
We will not honor requests for certain dates, certain grades, and/or mint marks. If you do not pay for your items within 48 hours, an unpaid item case(s) will be opened.
