BARGAIN & BULK COIN & CURRENCY LOTS

NewWORLD CROWN LOTS

Copper-nickel crown-sized coins of the world
Collectors around the world love copper-nickel crown sized (37-42mm) coins.  They a big and attractive.   I recently purchased a dealer's stock that included many of these popular coins - far too many to list individually. Most feature wildlife or are commemorative issues.  I made up lots of 20 different Uncirculated world crowns - without any British crowns. Many of these originally sold for $10 to $16 each, but I have too many so I am letting them go for far less.  Each lot is different though there will be some duplication between lots.

HISTORIC AUSTRIAN NOTGELD NOTES 

Austrian local emergency money, circa 1920Reduced size image
With the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire following World War I, hundreds of local communities briefly issued their own emergency currency, known as notgeld, for use within the town.  These notes are denominated in Heller and usually depict scenes of the issuing community.  They are an inexpensive, interesting and historic collectable. Most of the notes are dated 1920 and most grade VF to Unc.  Every lot is different, with few duplicates between lots.

ATTRACTIVE AND  COLORFUL GERMAN NOTGELD NOTES Germany small municipal notgeld notes

These attractive, colorful small (most less than 4 inches - 90cm long) were issued by communities throughout Germany during and after World War I.  They quickly became popular with collectors and by 1921 many thousand different types were produced.  They have a wide variety of themes, including fairy tales, local history, monuments, and political satire.  We recently purchased a collection of over 16,000 mostly different German notgeld notes.  The notes come packaged in envelopes, each containing 200 notes.  We checked a few envelopes and found a few duplicates in each, but little or no duplication between envelopes. For being over 100 years old they are remarkably inexepnsive..  Most notes are Uncirculated,  Feel free to order multiple lots.  We have a LOT of notgeld notes.

NEWITALIAN EMERGENCY MINIASSEGNI NOTES

Italy miniassegni banknotes (1975-1978)
Starting in 1975 many Italian banks issued what are called miniassegni, in order to help alleviate a severe coin shortage.  To get around the prohibition against issuing money, miniassegni were cashier's checks made out to a local business with a pre-printed endorsement, so that they could circulate as if they were real money. Miniassegni were issued a number of denominations ranging for 50 Lire to 350 Lire. Most are about 4 inches (100mm) long. The banks found them profitable as many were never redeemed because they were saved by collectors for forgotten by their holders due to their low value.  Soon other businesses began to issue them as well, including municipal chambers of commerce, stores, newsstands and bars. Some notes are quite colorful, highlighting local tourist sites.  By 1979 the government finally produced enough coins and the series came to an end.

COAL MINE TOKENS

West Virginia Coal ScripThese tokens, also known as Scrip, Dingles, Clackers and many other names, were issued by coal companies as an advance on wages when miners needed to buy mining supplies for their work, food or necessities for their home, pay rent on the company owned home, obtain medical care or almost any other aspect of life in a company town. Of course, they could only be used at company stores, where prices tended to be high. The value of the scrip would then be deducted from a miner's pay on payday. Miners could easily “owe their soul to the company store”. Metal tokens were widely used from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. During World War II fiber scrip was introduced in order to save metal, which was needed for the war effort. Most tokens had the name of the mine or store on it, and were often punched with the mine number or initials of the town. We have a historic collection of 10 different West Virginia (and maybe nearby states as well) coal scrip tokens, ranging in value from 1 cent to 1 Dollar and a set of 100 different that includes West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia and others with value from 1 cent to 5 Dollars or higher.  . The tokens grade from Very Good to Uncirculated. It is an interesting and historic set.

MISSOURI OZARK STRAWBERRY PICKERS CHITS 

Missouri Ozark strawberry pickers chits
These cardboard tokens were used to pay strawberry pickers in the Missouri Ozarks from the early 1900’s until about 1940. The chits are usually denominated in quantities of berries and show the issuing company. Workers received the chits as the berries were picked, and could redeem them later for pay. Because cardboard does not last long, few of these chits survived. Recently we purchased part of a hoard of these scarce and interesting pieces of history.

ARMY AND AIR FORCE EXCHANGE (AAFES) POG "COINS"

AAFES BASE EXCHANGE GIFT CERTIFICATE POG COINS
The Army and Air Force Exchange Services, commonly known as AAFES or just the Exchange, provides goods, services and fast food to members of the United States armed forces and their families throughout the world.  Prices are often lower than those found in nearby communities and most of the profits go to support the military's Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs.   Because of the cost and difficulty in supplying coins to bases in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East the AAFES produced these POG coins.  They are issued in the denominations of 5 cents, 10 cents and 25 cents and are printed on thin colorful 40mm plastic discs.  To avoid legal difficulties against issuing currency, the POGs are labeled as "Gift Certificates". The obverse has the denomination and the words "AAFES GIFT CERTIFICATE".   The POGS are issued in series, with a dozen or more reverse designs issued for each denomination for each series.   Since about 2003 each series has been dated.   Though they are only issued at forward bases, they may be redeemed at any AAFES facility. The POGS are listed in the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, Specialized Issues. They are a fascinating but little known military currency collectible. 
Item AAFESx20 20 DIFFERENT AAFES POGS: includes 5, 10 & 25 cents, VF-UNC $15.00
Item AAFESx3 SET OF 3 AAFES POGS: 5, 10 & 25 CENTS, XF-UNC $4.00
