Kagin’s Auction to offer gold coins to Hobo nickels

We collectors are living in an age of gold.

This week’s numismatic chapter regarding the precious metal will be written by a Sept. 15 auction to be conducted by Kagin’s Auction.

The sale will be called in conjunction with the Santa Clara, Calif., Coin Expo as well as online.

Check out the lots.

I did.

You won’t be disappointed even if you don’t collect gold.

The firm headed by Dr. Donald H. Kagin has deep roots in numismatics and gold.

It should.

Don wrote the book Private Gold Coins and Patterns of the United States.

If you like sunken treasure, Kagin’s Auction is offering six gold ingots recovered from the S.S. Central America, which sank off North Carolina in a hurricane in 1857.

The firm says bidders can vie for one ingot apiece from the California Gold Rush assayers, Blake & Co., Harris, Marchand & Co., Henry Hentsch and Justh & Hunter.

Two ingots, including one of the smaller ones available, are offered from Kellogg & Humbert.

The latter two partners were involved earlier in minting pioneer gold coins for the U.S. Assay Office, which preceded the U.S. Branch Mint in San Francisco.

There is a complete nine-piece set of Augustus Humbert U.S. Assay Office $ 50 gold pieces.

The will be sold individually.

“This is the first time in over a decade that all the $ 50 gold varieties are for sale in an unreserved public auction,” Kagin said.

According to the catalogers, the Yerba Buena (the original name of San Francisco) Collection was assembled over 25 years and comprises some of the finest specimens known, including examples from the Clifford-Kagin collection.

This collection was one of the most comprehensive pioneer gold collections prior to it being privately sold in the early 1990s.

These huge gold pieces are a glimpse into the rich history of the Califonia Gold Rush.

Other California gold coins range from fractionals to large pieces from private issuers.

Federal gold will be highlighted by a Proof-65+ Cameo 1860 $ 5 graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service.

It was once part of the Harry Bass Collection.

A set of Walking Liberty half dollars will dazzle collectors of non-gold U.S. coins.

Hobo nickels collectors will find much to their liking in this auction.

Before you leave the firm’s website, take another look at the catalog cover.

It is an original work of art by a 26-year-old Sandra Deiana of Italy.

She is a student at the School of Art and Medal Making at the Italian State Mint.

She triumphed over other artists in a design competition.

Congratulations to her.

For now, though, time is running short.

Get ready to bid.

There are three sessions to the auction.

The first is 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15.

The second is on the same date at 7 p.m.

The third is an online-only session ending at 5 p.m. Sept. 18.

Kagin’s Auction is a division of Kagin’s, Inc.

Do you know what these pieces are?

Noted numismatic researcher Roger W. Burdette needs help with his latest project.

Can you provide it?

He says he “is currently examining the private pattern coins and related pieces made by International Nickel Company (Inco) in 1964-65.”

These were created as test pieces in the race by America to find a substitute for the 90 percent silver dimes, quarters and half dollars that were being hoarded.

Commerce was being choked for lack of coins to make change.

Finding an alternative composition was an urgent matter.

Since Burdette knows most of us are not particularly familiar with what might be out there, he has helpfully provided images of known pieces.

Are there others?

Are there pieces of entirely different designs made for the same reason?

Burdette has many questions.

Readers perhaps can help answer them.

Burdette describes what he is interested in:

“Metal discs approximately the diameter and thickness of a U.S. quarter having engraved numbers and letters similar to the 18% Nickel Silver piece illustrated.”

An indicator of the importance Burdette puts on this information, he says “arrangements can be made to travel to examine significant collections.”

This is serious research.

Those who can offer him help are asked to email him at accurateye@aol.com.

While I am personally unable to provide information, I can help Burette spread the word.

My memory barely reaches back to that period of time.

I was a kid collector.

I was aware of the growing coin shortage.

I was happily putting cents in Whitman albums and standing in line at the bank to get the new Kennedy half dollar the day it was released.

But I was not reading Numismatic News, so I knew nothing of the research going on.

But when the Coinage Act of 1965 was signed into law by President Lyndon Baines Johnson, I became very much aware.

Clad coins have been a part of all our lives ever since.

I hope readers can help Burdette tell us how they came to be.

It will be a story worth reading.

I will line up to get the book when it is ready.

I can’t wait to learn what I missed the first time around.

Good Luck, Roger.

Trump medal: Inaugural yes or no?

The Presidential inaugural medal series came to an end in 2017.

Or did it?

It might just depend on what collectors do.

The Trump Presidential campaign website is now selling bronze medals.

Collectors will apply the duck test.

Does it look like a duck and walk like a duck, that is, an inaugural medal?

The obverse of the medal has a full facing portrait of President Trump.

Legend is simply his name: “Donald J. Trump.”

It was created by Medalcraft Mint in Green Bay, Wis., a firm that has done previous inaugural medals.

It has all the quality of their work and is every bit the equal of prior inaugural medals.

I compared it to the George W. Bush inaugural medal from 2001.

It featured a full facing portrait of President Bush.

On the reverse of the Trump medal is an enameled American flag.

It says, “Make American Great Again.”

On the reverse of the Bush medal is the Presidential seal.

The Bush reverse says, “Forty-third President of the United States of America – Inaugurated January 20, 2001.”

There is no enameling on the surface of the Bush medal.

Both medals have a diameter of 2.75 inches.

The Trump medal has a wooden stand.

So does the Bush medal.

Price of the Trump medal is $ 45.

You can still buy a Bush medal from the website of his Presidential library.

Price is $ 55.

On the Trump website is a nearly three-minute video shot at Medalcraft.

It is called “Promises Made, Promises Kept.”

The emphasis is on apprenticeships and vocational training as well as manufacturing in America.

So collectors of the United States will now have to decide.

Is this new Trump medal a part of the inaugural series?

We might find ourselves quibbling a bit about definitions.

But doers of the duck test can’t help but conclude in favor of inclusion.

There is also the need of collectors to collect something rather than nothing.

This medal will be fit into the inaugural series.

Perhaps collectors will demand silver and gold versions in the future.
