Rare Cache of Silver and Gold Coins found in home in Sullivan
County,
Tennessee


A “motherload” of a numismatic treasure trove will be auctioned
Sunday
March 5th at 2 PM by Kimball M Sterling, Inc. of Johnson City ,
Tennessee.
Kimball Sterling principle auctioneer and President received three
phone
calls over a period of a year to view a coin accumulation. The
third call
was charm. He visited the home which was in a secluded section of
Sullivan
County and knocked on the door.
After entering the small two bedroom home the occupant pointed Mr.
Sterling to three boxes on the kitchen floor. He picked up the
first box
and the first thing found was a collection of US minted gold coins
of
every denomination including the rare $3.00 example and each
edition of
the $1.00 gold coin. The container held over thirty plus US gold
coins
with a value of lower to mid five figure value. The box also
contained
vintage currency including National Bank notes of which some were
issued
in Johnson City, Erwin and other local cities to other cited
throughout
the USA. These National notes are very rare. Sterling at this point
ask
the owner if they had any idea what they had in value and the
answer was
“No”. The he advised that this was the best collection or
accumulation
that he has seen is his over 50 years in the antique and
collectible
business.
The second box was very heavy as Mr. Sterling put it on the table.
The
first thing in the top of the box was a collection of every example
of
Carson City silver dollar that was minted in the years of
production.
Many have been certified by ANACS as MS 62-
64 uncirculated examples. These 12 coins are in the 10k range in
value.
Also in the box were many common and rare silver dollars, silver
bars and
rounds, foreign gold coins, USA type coins of most denominations,
and many
large gold and silver certificate blanket notes. Both fractional
and
early state notes were found. A collection of US large cents,
silver
coinage of which some will be sold in $100.00 bags. Certified rare
coins
including two 1916D Mercury dimes, 1913s Buffalo nickel, and 1932d
quarter
were found in this box. Complete sets of Franklin and Liberty
halves plus
books of other silver coinage and type coins.
Box number three was an exciting group including many commemorative
halves, mint and proof sets, two cent and three cent pieces, more
currency, silver dollars, gold coins, tokens, rolls of silver
coinage,
foreign silver coins, complete sets of silver nickels, rolls of
buffalo
nickels, mint error coins, and much more. Mint rolls of silver
dollars, a
very large collection of Indian and Lincoln cents were found.
Mr. Sterling looked at the owner and said out loud “ What a great
collection you have” then the owner said that there was more. They
headed
down a small wood staircase to the basement which was cluttered to
the
ceiling with just about anything imaginable. They walked to the
back
corner of the basement and two rolling racks of clothing were moved
to
expose a large red shag carpet from the 1970’s. The owner advised
Sterling
to pull the carpet back and there were two very large boxes which
were
filled to the top with rare and collectable coins.
Mr. Sterling spent two days in the home cataloguing the entire
collection
with Dr. Mike Marchioni, expert in charge of Sterling’s coin
department
and nationally known numismatists and Vice President in charge of
collection clerking Blair White. Lots in this sale will range in
value
from $5.00 to $6000.00 which will attract the novice young
collector, the
most advanced, and the bullion collector. The collection of
thousands of
coins was moved to a local bank for storage until the sale date.
The collection will be available for viewing at 10:00 am the day of
the
auction Sunday March 5th which will begin at 2:00 pm. This is a
public
auction and the coins will be sold without reserve to the highest
bidder.
A catalogue of the auction appears at www.auctionauction.com. Terms
will
be cash or check for purchases and a 10% Buyers fee. Sterling is
located
at 125 West Market Street in Historic Downtown Johnson City.
