Chinese, U.S. & Worldwide Banknotes, Coins & Scripophily in 2 Sessions

Auction Details

On behalf of the entire Archives International Auctions team, I would like to personally welcome you to our 39th auction we have held over the last ten years. We are offering over 1400 lots of rare and exciting U.S., Chinese & Worldwide Banknotes, Scripophily, coins and Security Printing Ephemera. We will be featuring the second part of the Alexander I. Pogrebetsky Family Archives of rare Chinese banknotes that have never been offered previously at public auction.

Some of the many highlights include a new find of Imperial Bank of China 1898 issued notes found in an old estate in Florida; an outstanding collection of Middle Eastern notes including a desirable group of banknotes from Jordan, Iran, Iraq and Qatar & Dubai; an amazing selection of Sin Chun Bank of China notes in high grade; hundreds of rare railroad stocks and bonds as well as an extensive selection of rare scripophily including many topics of interest.

We are looking forward to another exciting auction and hope you enjoy our current offerings. We are also preparing for our late March auction that will include U.S. & Worldwide banknote, scripophily, coins and security printing ephemera as well as additional selections from the Pogrebetsky Family Archives.

Please contact us if you would like to participate or consign to our upcoming auctions. I would like to thank everyone who has participated in our past auctions and has helped make this auction series a resounding success.

Best of Luck,
Bob Schwartz
