As a follow up to my April 30th, 2019 post regarding the Bruce Ward Estate, I managed to receive a small sampling of the coins that will become available in the upcoming auction of Estate Fleet items. The auction itself has not yet been scheduled, but it is anticipated to take place within the next several months.
I am told that there are literally hundreds of silver reales, mostly uncleaned, as found, which will be available. These images include some small coin “clumps” which are highly collectible. Obviously, there are a number of coins that have been conserved and I hope to have some pictures available for viewing here on the site soon.
Any questions should be directed to Cargile Auctions, Searcy, Arkansas.
