In the realm of Asian pedigrees, few rival the Dr. Norman Jacobs unequaled collection of Asian coins. As many collectors recall, Jacobs’ collection brought forth such legendary coins such as the finest known example of the Ex. Jacobs’ Hsüan-t’ung "Spring" Dollar.
The sales, which will be held July 12-13 on HA.com, features supreme additional Asian rarities and specimens seen in remarkably few public appearances, including the Dr. Norman Jacobs Collection of Thai Coins.
"We are grateful to all of our consignors and clients who have worked with us through challenging times and helped us put together a superb auction catalog with impressive lots from vintage Chinese coins to modern issues," said Cristiano Bierrenbach, Executive Vice President of International Numismatics at Heritage Auctions.
"The amazing group of Thai coins from the collection of the legendary Dr. Noman Jacobs is worthy of note, as are many other highlights."
