M. Rosenblum of Littleton, Colo., is now offering the first of a
series of mail-bid sales offering Israeli, Palestine, Holocaust and
Judaic numismatic material from the Philadelphia Collection.
first sale closes Dec. 4.
first auction includes an extremely rare printer’s specimen for a
100-Palestine-pound note issued by the Palestine Currency Board dated
30TH, SEPTEMBER, 1929. The note is punched with three cancellation
holes instead of being perforated with the word “CANCELLED.”
the face in the upper right margin in pen is the notation “65/1.”
note is graded by the firm as About Uncirculated, and some green
stains, indicating the note was probably removed from the press before
the ink was dry, are noted in the lot description. Tracing of mounting
can be seen on the back. The piece has an estimate of $45,000-plus.
to Rosenblum this is “the finest collection” of such items that he’s
“offered in our 44 years in specializing in these items.”
