6,000 coins for sale in Baltimore, US

Bowers and Merena auctions are to bring their third auction of the year to Baltimore, Maryland in the US.

Perhaps the greatest highlight is a Census 1830 BD-1 Half Eagle from the collection of the great numismatist Dr Albert Globus. The coin is in excellent condition and extremely rare, with only around 30 known to exist.

The BD-1 is just one of 2,600 US coin and banknote lots which are on offer, alongside 3,500 pieces from the rest of the world.

Two of the other best US lots are a Capped Bust Right Half Eagle (1799) graded Mint State 62, and Capped Bust Left Quarter Eagle (1826) graded as Almost Unused 55 - both certified by the PCGS.

There is also a Double Eagle in Proof-64 Cameo (1878) graded by the NGC. There are thought to be fewer than 10 of these in existence at any grade, one of which is in a museum.

Notaphilists will be interested in a Clark, Gruber & Co. Remainder $5 Denver, Colorado note, in very fine condition.

And European collectors will be captivated by a 1746 Ducat from Denmark depicting Frederick V graded at an incredible Mint State 62.

With over 6,000 lots, there should be something for everyone. Viewing starts on November 10, and auctions run from November 12-14.
