    /2006

    Highlight: 8R 1797 Charles IV Mexico This piece is also from Schulman’s sale of the Gibbs collection and is listed as lot 1757G, unplated. Also attributed to St. Kitts, it is said to have a “15 mm hole” (Schulman 1966). No doubt this piece has also been as- signed to St. Kitts on the strength of Howland Wood’s attribution of the Caldecott dollar. Both this and the Caldecott coin are said by Wood to have an aperture of 15 mm. Tempting as it may be, there is no evidence one way or the other that this Gibbs dollar is the 1797 piece illustrated by the Bremner drawing mentioned above. 5. 8R 1800 Charles IV Mexico FM This coin appears as lot 1216, plated, in Jess Peters’ sale of the Ray Byrne collection, where it is attributed to Haiti, ca. 1811, and said to be “very rare” (Peters 1975).

    Highlight: which was further confirmed when I searched the plates of the Hans Schulman auction of the Howard Gibbs Collection of Counterstamped, Necessity and Siege Coins of the Americas (March 18, 1966). The Gibbs collection was remarkable, not only for the many rarities that it contained, but because it is a useful reference for identifying fake and fantasy countennarks. Gibbs did not recognize that many of his pieces were bogus, but since the makers of fantasies often used the same stamps on coins supposedly issued in different nations, comparing Gibb’s photographs to suspicious pieces will allow many bogus pieces to be exposed as fakes. Lot 1561 in the Gibbs auction was a 1726 French ecu with another Crown / GR made from the same crown and the same letters. Lot 1562 also had the same countermark

    Highlight: I came across a photo (Figure 2) of similar 4 Reales piece which had been put on the block during the 1966 Schulman auction of the Howard Gibbs collection (Lot 1040). Its data was more complete, sporting an 888 date fonned by six circle punches, and with a more complete obverse and reverse in terms of detail. It was obvious as I became more knowledgeable about this coinage that the provisional mint personnel in Gran Colombia (currently approximating the areas of present day Colombia, Venezuela, Panama and Ecuador) attempted to duplicate the Lima mint design to the degree that the left arm of the obverse cross clearly depicted the L mintmark for Lima with an assayer’s initial M to the right, possibly copying an example from the period from 1709 to 1729 when Felix C.C. Melgarejo served as

    Highlight: The Damong/Gibbs collection was auctioned off in the early 1970s as part of the Gibbs estate. The collection comprised a number of lots owing to its size, and was effectively broken up due to no one bidder obtaining aJl of them. Some of the specimens illustrating this article once were part of that collection. Even the Damong/Gibbs collection of about 6,000 types was nowhere near complete. The actual number of available types may be as many as 9,000. An American collection of nearly 8,000 was reported in the 1960s, but it wasn’t clear whether or not that figure included duplicates. Given the hand-made character of some types, it is at times difficult to recognize tokens which intentionally differ in small detail from those which are intended to be duplicates but which differ in minor,

    Highlight: Gibbs collection was built... Andy Kelpsh was diagnosed with incurable colonic cancer soon after. His widow sent all of his marvelous stock to Hans M.F. Schulman. I don't know if she was ever paid. See the New York Numismatic Club Centennial History for his rather widely publicized record of non-payment to consignors. The first auction catalogue I read as a kid was Hans' "Public Auction - Remarkable Collection of Crowns of the World," Sept. 21, 1956. This slim, orange covered catalogue personified all of these Schulman quirks and horrified me since I was a purist at the time. I eventually learned of the American tendency to swoon over exotic foreign accents, "Ooooh, he must know EVERYTHING! Just listen to that accent!!! Hans remained a promoter of fantasy stories until his death, including

    John J. Ford, Jr. Collection of Coins, Medals and Currency, Part 23

    Highlight: the sale of the Howard Gibbs Collection at the ANA in 1952 and Jeffrey Hoare Auctions Inc. Sale 72 in 2002. Some of these sales are repeat appearances of the same specimens.” This is the Gibbs example. The 2004 Hoare example was “buried in the ground for a number of years, however, it is well preserved [though] ... it has been slightly reduced in size and weight with some of the details being lost.” That piece was apparently dug with a small group of similarly corroded specimens on Prince Edward Island. A 2008 article by Bill Kamp in The Logbook, the newsletter of the Newfoundland Numismatic Enthusiasts, points out that the 2002 Hoare offering was the first auc- tion offering in fifty years (i.e. since this piece last sold) and that aside from the new hoard of corroded pieces “only three o

    Highlight: Gibbs collection was built...

    Andy Kelpsh was diagnosed with incurable colonic cancer soon after. His widow sent all of his marvelous stock to Hans M.F. Schulman. I don't know if she was ever paid. See the New York Numismatic Club Centennial History for his rather widely publicized record of non-payment to consignors.

    The first auction catalogue I read as a kid was Hans' "Public Auction - Remarkable Collection of Crowns of the World," Sept. 21, 1956. This slim, orange covered catalogue personified all of these Schulman quirks and horrified me since I was a purist at the time. I eventually learned of the American tendency to swoon over exotic foreign accents, "Ooooh, he must know EVERYTHING! Just listen to that accent!!!

    Money of the Caribbean (COAC no. 15)

    /2006

    Highlight: Gibbs collection (1966, no. 1757F-G-H) consecrated the St. Kitts attribution, this time without the question mark. Indeed, the Gibbs sale contained three holey dollars without countermarks: two Spanish-American 8 reales, one with a “10 mm” hole (the photograph shows it to be 12 to 13 mm) and the other with a “15 mm” hole (no. 1757F and G); and a French ecu with a “15 mm” hole (No. 1757 H). Just before the Gibbs sale, Ray Byrne (1965, 8-9) noted that a holey dollar without any crenations or markings had been “arbitrarily assigned to St. Kitts (...) by early catalogers”. Although correct in the use of the term arbitrary, his suggestion that this type of piece could be a forgery had no basis in fact and was pure speculation. Indeed, this style of thinking led him to an even more serious error

The Napoleonic Wars led to yet another instance of the forcing of leather money on unwilling laborers. At Eferding, Upper Austria, at the time of the French occupation, the masons and stonecutters were paid for their building of entrenchments with round leather 1 groschen tokens dated 1804. These bear the crest of the paymaster, Philip Eder, Master of the guild of the masons and stone- cutters.

    Highlight: A square leather token from Portugal was in the Gibbs collection. Its inscrip- tion was unclear. Apparently it was an issue of post World War I emergency money also, though it may have been issued in the 19th century. No further leather pieces appeared until 1930, when the Detroit Coin Club, Detroit, Michigan, issued a small leather medal commemorating its 150th meet- ing. This piece, which was not redeemable and so was not money in any sense, is uniface with a design embossed on black or colored leather. It has the distinc- tion of being the first leather giveaway piece issued by a coin club. With the Great Depression, leather was once again placed into circulation and redeemed. Three towns in Oregon issued leather scrip in 1933 and 1934. In Albany, the A. Sternberg Saddlery - Albany

    Highlight: Same specimen Hans Schulman 1966 sale of the Gibbs Collection.] History was soon to repeat itself. Twice, in fact. For slightly over a decade later, the very same Mexican general would face similar financial problems when he attempted to subdue a rebellious, independently minded Texas, which by the time of the Mexican- American War would no longer be the stronghold Filisola would have needed if Mexico were to have the slightest chance of retaining the rest of its territories north of the Rio Grande. Yet another lesson - in military terms, and certainly in terms of ‘winning hearts and minds’ - had not been learned. One that bears repeating: ‘Sic transit Gloria mundi’. ‘Thus passes all worldly glory’. This dictum could be expanded: ‘Meanwhile, pay your troops’. Author Roberto Jovel received

    Highlight: It was not until many years later that I spotted the same type of counterstamp in the 1965 Hans Schulman sales catalog of the Howard Gibbs collection. There it was placed on a cut-back Mexican real of the Karlos and Juana type, with the pillars design, struck as late as the first decades of the reign of Philip II (1556-98). Here the mark was, without explanation, attributed to Nicaragua. Then, through the good services of Greg Brunk, I received a copy of a page from a Swiss Bank Corporation sales catalog of this year, with a coin that was very similar to mine. They assigned the counterstamp to the Canary Islands. Unfortunately, the people at the bank could not give me more information, even though they were very helpful. Finally, Greg Brunk drew my attention to a recent book Las Monedas en
