    The Mortimer Hammel Collection of 19th & 20th Century Foreign Gold Coins

    Highlight: THE HAMMEL COLLECTION As a friend of the late Mortimer Hammel for over forty years I felt both touched and honored when asked by the Stacks to prepare this brief commentary on the formation and nature of the splendid Hammel Collection of World Gold Coins. Mr. Hammel was born in New York City on October 28, 1893. He died on September 10, 1981, shortly before his eighty- seventh birthday. After graduating from high school he started to work as an apprentice in a large hardware store in New York. He rapidly advanced to head salesman and then buyer for the organization. In 1916 he joined the U.S. Army. His service overseas included an assignment with the Military Police Force at the French port of Brest. When he returned to this country in the latter part of 1919 he immediately secured a

    The Mortimer Hammel Collection of 19th & 20th Century Foreign Gold Coins

    Highlight: THE HAMMEL LATIN AMERICAN COINS The 256 Latin American coins described on the following pages represent one of the outstanding sections of the Hammel Collection. They provide an almost complete group of all the available pieces issued by the new States that replaced the Spanish Empire. The transition from the old to the new sometimes appears abrupt except in the case of Brazil.

The transition from the Portuguese Kingdom based in Lisbon to a native Brazilian Empire based in Rio de Janeiro was quite smooth. One result can he seen in the Brazilian coinage which somehow retained an elegance of design and execution beyond the talents of

    Ancient and World Coins

    Highlight: not found in the otherwise definitive Mortimer Hammel Collection (one of only three Columbian types Hammel did not possess). None appeared in Norweb, but this charm- ing coin was a highlight of Waldo C. Newcomer’s Latin American holdings. Colombian coin researcher Sedwick believes fewer than 10 examples exist, and the last public appearance of this specimen was in 1935. Conservatively graded Choice Extremely Fine, though the basic crudity of planchet and strike may justify a higher grade designation. (7,500-10,000) Ex Louis E. Eliasberg Collection (American Numismatic Rarities, April 2005, lot 1630); previously in the J.C. Morgenthau (Wayte Raymond) sale of the Waldo C. Newcomer Collection (February 1935, lot 236); John H.
