POST-WORLD II:. Leu Ltd., Bank. Zurich 15 May 1991. Auction 52. Greek and Roman Coins from a Distinguished American Collection. 292 lots, 226 pages, illustrated throughout. Prices realized list and a Notice [to the participants] tipped in. Original illustrated card covers. Fine.
A note from BCD: The ”Notice” should have included some more coins to be withdrawn (see the list of prices realized) but the principals, quite wisely, thought that this would reflect adversely on the company’s reputation. Irrespective of this unfortunate intrusion of clever forgeries in the collection, the historical and numismatic notes after each entry, being the work of Alan Walker, are certainly worth reading.
