The Spink Collector's Series sale in NY, January 14-15 2014,
will feature the Gerald W. Jackson Collection of British Pennies.
The collection is largely made up of a select group of Hammered
types and late 18th Century onwards large Coppers.
Hammered highlights include:
An East Anglian Sceat or Transitional Penny of Beonna (749-760
or later). Less than a handful of these Interlace types are known
and should be considered the first silver Penny of East Anglia.
A unique Hiberno-Norse Penny of Anlaf V (1029-1034), Norse ruler
of Dublin. This coin is the only known example in his name.
A handsome Portrait Penny of Alfred the Great (871-899), London
mint, moneyer Tilewine.
Victoria Penny lots, numbering 59, are all high-grade and
include a good amount of Proofs and rarities. The Jackson
collection also includes a choice group of Mexican Crowns, with a
concentration of Peso types, such as 'Caballitos'; and a broad
offering of Icelandic coins including a number of quite Rare Proof
Other properties include a pleasing group of Ancient Greek
silver, highlighted by a lovely Syracusan Dekadrachm, and a
Tetradrachm of Akanthos, ca. 430-390 BC; and sundry world coins,
medals and currency, including a Very Rare Yemeni Gold Rial (5
Lira) of Imam Yahya, AH 1344.
