YOU ARE BIDDING ON ONE COIN ONLY, the 1895 piece at upper left.

Please note that I do not grade like the amateurs on eBay, nor like the pros who "adjust" their grades when listing on eBay. I sell thousands of coins every year. Most of my grades are below what NGC/PCGS would assign. My last return was 2005. I remember another one in 1997.

Postage $3 insured ($12 overseas, Air-Registered). Items may be viewed and/or picked up in my street-level store near the Empire State Building. (Yes, I REALLY DO have 250,000 coins, mostly foreign, plus 100,000 medals & tokens.) Paul J. BOSCO, 149 Madison Ave @E32nd St, NYC 10016; 212/PJ8-COIN; .
