Happy July!
 Have you ever built a detailed website from scratch? It is a LOT of work!
And if you’re doing it in your “spare” time, it’ll take a lot longer than you’d think.


 We’d like to invite you to peruse the all new
The new site features much easier navigation, LOTS more items than the old site and, in most cases, lower prices.
 Mind you, we’re still tweaking the site, so there might be some errors, typos, pictures in the wrong place… If you’d be good enough to spend a few minutes surfing, we’d love to hear your comments, suggestions, criticisms (or compliments). If you find any significant errors, please report them to us so we can fix them. In any event, anyone who sends us any comment on the new will receive a $25 credit towards your next purchase.

Thanks for your help!

 This weekend, we’re featuring some good looking and very affordable 19th century $10 Liberty head gold Eagles, a few very pretty certified Saint-Gaudens and the world’s only known shipwreck currency.

Wishing you a great weekend and a happy and safe 4th of July!
 In March 2016, we acquired a horde of shipwreck currency from the Andrea Doria. As we often do, we put some sets aside to see how the market would go. It has held strong, so this week, we decided to put some up on eBay – no reserve auctions starting at .99¢. They did GREAT, realizing prices 28% higher than we sold them for just 15 months ago.
A little background on the notes:
 In July 1956, the SS Andrea Doria sunk off the coast of Nantucket. 52 souls were lost (and 1,600 rescued). In 1981, a team recovered the Banco di Roma safe that had been submerged in the shipwreck for 25 years. It was believed the 650-pound safe contained First Class passengers’ jewelry and other valuables.

In 1984, on live television, the safe was opened and the sunken treasure revealed.

 Turned out that the passenger’s jewelry and other valuables were apparently removed by their owners prior to evacuation. What was discovered were stacks of U.S. $1 Silver Certificates and 50, 100 and 1,000 Lire Italian bank notes.
In 2006, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the ship’s sinking, PCGS certified 2,726 U.S. $1 Silver Certificates and 878 undated Banca d’Italia notes from the 1947 to 1951 series.

Here they are:

In case you can’t see the image above, each set includes:
One (1) US $1 silver certificate, PCGS certified “C”
One (1) Italian 1,000 lire note, PCGS certified “genuine”
Each set of shipwreck currency comes in a collector’s box with an informational DVD, a Certificate of Authenticity and a letter of authenticity.

When originally sold, the “C” grade Silver Certificate alone sold for $595
We just saw an Italian 1,000 lire note on eBay today for $999.
TWO DAYS AGO, our no-reserve auctions realized a total of $357 for the 1,000 lire note and the Silver Certificate.
This weekend only, we’re offering these historical notes at last year’s prices:
only $299 per set!
Five (5) sets: only $279 per set
FREE shipping on all orders
Supply is very limited – FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED.

This is the perfect gift to put up for the kids or grandchildren; a piece of history to preserve through the generations…
