The Low Countries Collection : Signature Sales

The Low Countries Collection

Signature Sale of VIP and Proof Issues From a Range of Countries.

Included in this sale under the relevant country in this catalogue is a collection of VIP proof issues. However, for posterities sake we show the lots here as a signature sale listing. It is in fact only half of the collection, and the vendor is intending to offer the second half later this year.

In some cases we have stated the mintage figures as quoted by standard reference catalogues, however the vendor has tracked the market for these VIP proof issues extensively for ten years and his findings make a compelling argument that these mintage figures are overstated, and where for example Krause Mischler states a mintage of 100 the frequency of such pieces offered in all major sales and on-line auctions over the last ten years is so few as to be on a par with issues where only 10 to 20 are known to have been struck.
