The New Baldwin's Winter Fixed Price List

TheNew Baldwin’s WinterFixedPriceList

Baldwin’s are delighted to announce that their new FixedPriceList is now available both in printed

format and online at www.baldwin.co.uk. As in previous years the new list comprises a wide selection

of Ancient, British and Scottish Coins, including an unusually large run of unduplicated Anglo-Saxon

pennies and a small run of Celtic gold coins, as well as a good selection of numismatic books.

Highlights from the Ancient coin section include item number AG012, a Kingdom of Thrace,

Lysimachos (323-281 B. C.), silver Tetradrachm. This is a stunning example of a portrait of Alexander

the Great, beautifully crafted and with an excellent provenance, having been sold in two major

auctions of the 20 th century. The item is priced at £3,000. AG048 is a rare coin of Pharaonic Egypt,

Nektanebo II, the last Pharaoh of Egypt. Nektanebo’s coinage consisted of the well known and

extremely rare gold Staters and an issue of bronzes, of which this coin is one. The issues of Nektanebo

II used hieroglyphs as their reverse types and are considered to be the only true native Egyptian coins.

This example depicts a ram running, head right, on the obverse and a pair of scales on the reverse and

is priced at £1,850. Item AG049 is another example of a great rarity. The North Africa, Zeugitana,

Carthage, Electrum Stater is an exceptional piece, superbly forged and is one of the very few of its kind

remaining. The Staters were widely used prior to the Roman siege operation which resulted in the

Battle of Carthage. During the battle the city of Carthage was completely ruined and most of the

coinage was destroyed along with it. This extremely fine example is priced at £4,500. Another most

noteworthy piece of the Ancient Roman section is item AR029, a Claudius, gold Aureus, Lugdunum.

A very pretty example in excellent condition, priced at £12,500.

A 1643 Charles I Triple Unite depicting one of the rarer types of Obverse is undoubtedly the highlight

of the British hammered section and this particular example is an extremely fine piece with a clear

portrait. The die combination of this coin is always double struck to a degree but it is notoriously hard

to find a coin with this die combination which has a clear and well preserved portrait, such as this.

The piece comes with exemplary provenance, most recently being sold through the Samuel King Spink

auction, 2005 and is priced at £120,000. Item BH032 is a lesser example of the Charles I Triple Unite,

but equally as interesting. Also a 1643 example it is interesting to note that, amongst the 15 different

Triple Unites within the comprehensive John G Brooker Collection there was no example of this

particular die combination. It is estimated by Baldwin’s English specialist Steve Hill that only one in

every twenty of the available Triple Unites would be found in this die combination, making this an

incredibly rare piece and a must have for any English coin collector. The item is priced at £49,500.

Highlights from the British section continue with item SC002, a 1593 James VI, sixth coinage, hat piece

or Eighty Shillings. This is one of the rarest Scottish coins to carry a Renaissance style portrait of the

King. Very few examples of the coin are known to be in private hands and this is one of the finest

examples encountered by Baldwin’s specialists. The item is priced at £30,000. During the compilation

of this list the Baldwin’s specialist team discovered a new transitional die variety of the William IV

Crown, unrecorded in English Silver Coinage. The proof crown of 1831 created by William Wyon

would appear to be the first die proposed for the new William IV Crown. Wyon spelt his surname in

full on the bust of the King’s portrait, which must have been considered as far too bold, but rather than

waste a valuable obverse die Wyon must have re-filled the signature on the die’s truncation and reengraved

with an incuse WW over the top. This is an extremely interesting discovery for English coin

enthusiasts and William Wyon aficionados alike.

A smaller selection of numismatic books completes the list with a few notable items of great interest.

Item NB01, a copy of Edward Burns ‘The Coinage of Scotland’ is illustrated in part from the collections

of Thomas Coats Esq. The three volumes were printed in Edinburgh in 1887 and are one of only 45

large paper copies ever produced. Other copies can be found in libraries and institutions

internationally and so it is unusual for these volumes to be offered for sale on the open market. The

books are priced at £875. Item NB040, is perhaps one of the most interesting items in the list. A copy

of both volumes of T.E. Mionnet’s book De La Rareté Et Du Prix Des Médailles Romaines, have been

interleaved and rebound with photographs and photocopies of illustrations taken from contemporary

auction catalogues, cut and pasted onto the relevant pages. These images are accompanied throughout

by numerous handwritten notes in French but sadly there are no clues as to the identity of the compiler

. These unique volumes are priced at £365.

A. H. Baldwin & Sons Ltd were established 1872 and are one of the oldest numismatic dealers and

auctioneers in the industry. Since our formation we have built the largest stock of coins in the UK and

the Baldwin’s specialist team scour three continents to source the rarest and highest quality items

department is a product of all of our hard work and a compliment to the online stock listed at

www.baldwin.co.uk and the extensive selection of coins held at the Baldwin’s offices in London.

NEKTANEBO II, THE LAST PHARAOH OF EGYPT

AG048 Phara onic Egypt, Nekta nebo II (361-343 B.C.), AE 16mm, ram running left, its head turned right, rev

scales, 3.46g (Weiser, Katalog Ptolemäischer Bronzemünzen der Sammlung des Instituts für Altertums kunde der

Univers ität Köln, p. 16, 1; Butcher 11 (uncertain northern Syrian mint)). Brown patina, very fine, very rare and

extremely interesting. £1,850

Nektanebo II was the last Pharaoh of the thirtieth dynasty of Egypt. He was the nephew of the Pharaoh Takhos and had assumed control of Egypt by force

after being granted command of the Egyptian army in Syria. Nektanebo II was eventually driven from his throne by a Persian invasion in 344/3 B.C., after

which he fled to Ethiopia and, for a few years, managed to maintain some control of Upper Egypt. During the reigns of Takhos and Nektanebo II, the only

coinage to be issued in Egypt during the Pharaonic period was produced. Takhos apparently issued gold staters, imitating issues of Athen s, which today are

represented by a unique example in the British Museum. The issues of Nektanebo II, employing hieroglyphs as their reverse types, are considered to be the

only truly native Egyptian coinage. Nektanebo’s coinage consisted of the well-known and extremely rare gold Staters, possibly silver fractions (of which two

examples are known), and an issue of bronzes.

stops and three Oxford plumes above, 26.66g. (Beresford-Jones dies V/S5; Schneider 291; Brooker 836; N.2383; S.2726).

Double struck as usual for this die combination, struck on a nice broad flan, as struck with weaknesses inherent

from the double strike, toned with underlying brilliance, about extremely fine and very rare. £120,000

John Jay Pittman, USA, 6-8 th August 1999, lot 3739 and colour plate

Samuel King, 5 th May 2005, lot 77

This die combination is always double struck to a degree, and is notoriously hard to find with a decent portrait. The piece offered here is not as double struck

as usual and it is the legend that exhibits more of the doubled look rather than the portrait. The portrait of this piece is particularly pleasing for a coin of this

die combination.

ONE OF THE RAREST DIE COMBINATIONS IN THE TRIPLE UNITE SERIES,

AND ONE OF THE FEW THAT J G BROOKER DID NOT OBTAIN

BH032 Charles I (1625-49), Triple-Unite or Three Pound Piece, Oxford Mint, 1643, crowned and armoured half-length

portrait of King left, holding upright sword in right hand, laurel branch in left hand, Oxford plumes in field, all entirely within

beaded circle, initial mark plume with bands, CAROLVS.D:G.MAGN:BRIT:FRAN:ET:HIB:REX.: toothed border both sides, rev

legend on wire line scroll EXVRGAT: DEVS: DISSIPENTVR: INIMICI: surrounds and continues into Declaration RELIG:PROT

LEG:ANG LIBER: PAR in three lines on continuous scroll at centre, date below, value III and three Oxford plumes above, 26.49g.

(Beresford-Jones dies VI/L4; Schneider 298; Brooker -; N.2384; S.2727). Once polished, now starting to tone with a tinge of

red, dig in obverse field and lightly hairlined, weakly struck on shoulder and at corresponding part of reverse, a few

tiny nicks on reverse and short scratch above first I of value, otherwise nearly very fine and an extremely rare die

combination with this London made reverse die. £49,500

Glendining, 9 th April 1975, lot 24

It is interesting to note that amongst the 15 different Triple Unites within the comprehensive John G Brooker Collection there was no specimen of this die

combination.

All the specific dies were recorded by R D Beresford-Jones in his article about Triple-Unites in the British Numismatic Journal 3 rd Series, Volume VII (1952-

54), page 334-344 and plates.

It would be a fair estimate to say that only one in every twenty of the available Triple-Unites will be of this die combination, thus making it extremely rare.

How often this combination might be encountered on the open market is even harder to estimate.

A NEWLY DISCOVERED TRANSITIONAL DIE VARIETY OF WILLIAM IV CROWN

BM052 William IV (1830-1837), Proof Crown, 1831, bare head right, W. W. engraved incuse over a weaker trace of a

die-filled W. WYON on truncation, rev crowned mantle over quartered shield with escutcheon of the Arms of Hanover,

within Order of the Garter, date below, plain edge (cf. ESC.271 / 278; L&S 1 / 3; cf. Davies 300; S.3833). Toned, a few

tiny hairlines and marks, reverse a touch double struck in places, otherwise good extremely fine, and a new

variety unrecorded in English Silver Coinage. £25,000

It would seem that chronologically the first die proposed for the new William IV Crown was the W WYON version. It must have been considered far too bold

of William Wyon to spell his surname in full, especially on the bust of the King’s coinage. Rather than waste a valuable obverse die with his enigmatic portrait

of the King, William Wyon must have re-filled the signature on the die’s truncation and re-engraved an incuse WW over the top. This is a new and significant

discovery and is published for the first time on this list.
