Unique Gold Victoria Uniface Pattern
1050301: Great Britain. Victoria. (Queen, 1837-1901). ND (1887) AV Uniface Gold Pattern Penny (?). NGC PR63 Cameo. Attributed to Ludwig Lauer. Edge: Plain, squared rims with partially raised “knife rim”. 27.2mm. 10.16gm. 3/4 forward crowned and veiled portrait without date or legend / Blank. KM-Unlisted; Wilson and Rasmussen-Unlisted.
A likely unique gold pattern made by Lauer for Spink with an unrecorded veiled head portrait of Queen Victoria, Ex-Murdoch collection (1904 Sotheby’s, lot 541). This intriguing piece was sold together with an 1887 pattern half farthing in gold in the Murdoch sale; unfortunately there are no surviving records at Spink to state what this pattern was for, as their records were destroyed by fire in World War II. The diameter is very similar to the penny. Comparable to the uniface pattern sovereign listed as Wilson and Rasmussen-378 (which has a weight of 7.64g, not the standard 7.32g for a sovereign; therefore we know Lauer was not conforming to the British weight standards.) This piece is unlisted in Wilson and Rasmussen but was only rediscovered in 2008, after the publication of their volume on British gold patterns and proofs. Described on the insert as a “pattern” due to the lack of reference sources. The Murdoch collection con
Medallic Kremnitz 10 Ducats

St. George riding on horse to the right, spearing dragon below / IN TEMPESTATE SECURITAS. Wind God blowing ship carrying Christ and three apostles. Huszar 23; Friedberg-Unlisted.
An extremely rare type, unlisted by Friedberg. The fabric of this piece appears to be 18th century, when Heinrich Fuchs was active, though it is possible the piece was struck in the 19th Century. $22,500.
Geneva Shooting Medal in Gold
1049014: Switzerland. Geneva Canton. 1882 AV Shooting Medal. PCGS SP63. By G. Richard. 42mm. 69gm. Helvetica as an angel leaning against a pedestal greeting a heraldic rifleman / Decorative shield of the Coat of Arms of Geneva, over crossed rifles and flags of Switzerland and Geneva, oak and olive wreath surround.
