Tribal Artifacts, Estate Jewelry, Coins and Diamonds Lead Upcoming Nest Egg Auctions SaleSep 16, 2023 13:00 EDT
The latest Tribal, Jewelry, Art, Coins, and Asian sale from Nest Egg Auctions will offer over 230 items from Connecticut estates and private collections. Leading the catalogue is a 1908-P $5 Gold Indian Head Half Eagle coin. The coin was issued in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt as a replacement for the Liberty Head $5 gold coin that had been in circulation for decades. A Native American in a headdress is depicted on the obverse of the coin, alongside the inscription “LIBERTY” and the year of mintage below. An eagle appears on the coin’s reverse, surrounded by the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and the denomination “FIVE DOLLARS.” A first of its kind, the new Indian Head design was in recess— the design, lettering, and other elements are embedded into the coin’s surface rather than raised up. The Indian Head design was in circulation until 1933, when Roosevelt ordered all gold coins to be melted into bars in order to alleviate the Great Depression.
Collectors can also consider a Tiffany Lemon Leaf leaded lamp shade. A creation by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Tiffany Studios, this lamp features a glass shade. In the Art Nouveau movement, Tiffany lamps are regarded as one of the most important elements. In addition, the auction will present LeCoultre Atmos clocks, a J E Stevens Black Americana mechanical bank, and a half-stock American percussion rifle.
