August 08, 2007

Medieval Italian Selection Arrives at DNW

Dix Noonan Webb - DNW, one of the best London auction firms, is soon presenting thier sale 74B which contains a large selection of Medieval coins. Many are a formed group of Italian States and city issues, including coins from Aquileia, Avignon, Naples, Venice and more. There are some very scarce pieces here and the estimates are very resonable. Don't miss a good opportunity to add a few tough medieval issues to your collection.

Also hidden in sale 74B are a wonderful grouping of odd and curious ChineseZhou Dynasty issues, including Cowrie shells, Bridge money, Fish money, Dagger Axe cons, Hoe money, Knife money and bars and ingots.

Of course the mainstay of the sale is British material, of which there are many fine pieces offered, including a scarce 1790 pattern sixpence with crowned GR and Britannia reverse. This coin is a dazzler and should create some serious interest from specialists in British pattern coinage.
