Auction Details

On behalf of the entire Archives International Auctions team, I would like to personally welcome you to our 46th auction we have held over the last ten years. We are excited to offer over 500 lots of rare and desirable U.S. & Worldwide Banknotes, Coins, and Scripophily in our last auction of 2017.

Included in the sale are consignments from numerous estates and longtime collections with many items having never been offered at auction previously. Included in the sale is a desirable selection of U.S., Chinese and Worldwide Banknotes, Scripophily, Coins, and Security Printing Ephemera.

The highlights include a Ming Dynasty Circulating Note, ca.1369-99, The Earliest Piece of
Paper Currency Known and available to collectors; a unique Jeffries Bank Note Company sample book, ca.1930-1960’s with hundreds of proof vignettes, design elements, traveler’s checks and assorted security printed material; a pair of Virginia Central Railroad slave documents from the 1860’s right before the end of the Civil War; another group of California and State Fractional Gold, some in very high grade; and a desirable Fractional Currency Shield in exceptional condition with minimal water staining and a majority of the notes in excellent condition as well as an uncut sheet of First Issue 50 cents fractional notes.

Chinese and Worldwide Scripophily is highlighted with the first offering from the Baltimore Collection of hundreds of rare B&O Railroad stocks, bonds and related documents acquired over 30 years ago before the sale of the B&O Archives including many rare issues from Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky; State and City bonds include a desirable selection of Louisiana and Ohio bonds as well as railroads and mining. An exceptional collection of 6 different varieties of Apple, Inc. Specimen and issued stock certificates are offered; and hundreds of other stocks, bonds, and related items to be auctioned.

The U.S. banknote section features a First National Bank of Stafford Springs, Connecticut 1902, $10 PB, Fr#626, Ch#3914 that is PMG graded Very Fine 30 and is sure to attract attention. Numerous additional lots consisting of U.S. Colonial, Confederate, Obsolete, Small, and Large type, fractional and depression scrip are also offered.
