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 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.

NEW1000 DIFFERENT WORLD COINS BEFORE 1978

Lot of 1000 different world coinsWOW! What a deal! 1000 different world coins, all dated before 1978! Nice mix of both circulated and Uncirculated coins, including some 19th century issues and many scarce issues and locations which are hard to find today. These lots were assembled by a dealer over 40 years ago and have sat in storage ever since. We offered these a few years ago and completely sold out, however our supplier recently found a few more sets in their warehouse.  It would be difficult and expensive to try to recreate the lot today (which is probably why you don't see offers for 1000 different coins).  It will provide hours of enjoyment sorting and cataloging the wide variety of world coins. This 1000 different coin lot is great for starting or expanding a collection or for dealer's stock, and is a wonderful way to introduce kids to collecting world coins.

UNIDENTIFIED OLD CHINESE CASH COINS   Restocked

Medieval Chinese Cash coinsWe were finally able to find more old unsorted, unidentified Chinese cash coins. Folks have fun sorting, identifying and cataloging them.  And they are remarkably cheap considering their age. They are get hard to obtain because of the idiotic policies by our government.  The U.S. government considers Chinese cash coins to be a rare cultural item and are thus illegal to import, even though they are available by the millions and are sold legally and openly in China.  We purchased some small groups that were imported years ago.   Most are  Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127AD), along with some Tang Dynasty (618-907AD) and Qing (Ching) Dynasty (1644-1911) coins and maybe a few others.  Most grade VG to VF.  To assist you in identifying the coins we have an identification booklet "OLD COINS OF CHINA" by Holgar Jorgensen listed below.   Multiple lots are available and every lot is different.

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.

These cardboard tokens were used to pay strawberry pickers in the Missouri Ozarks from the early 1900’s until about 1940.

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
