Ex Nomos 8, 22 October 2013, 144, from an American collection and from the collection of Norman Davis.

Skyros is a fairly rough island and was never particularly prosperous. In the early 5th century BC it became the stronghold of the Dolopian Pirates who proceeded to terrorize the northern Aegaean until they were destroyed by the Athenians under Kimon c. 475. After that the island was settled by Athenian cleruchs and lapsed into obscurity: it is known for being the burial place of both Theseus (whose supposed bones, probably those of a giant sloth, were taken to Athens by Kimon) and the British poet Rupert Brooke (who had died of sepsis from a mosquito bite on the way to Gallipoli in World War I).

Conditions générales de vente

La vente aux enchères s’effectue en francs suisses. Au prix d’adjudication s’ajoute une commission d’achat de 22.5%. Elle sera de 22.5% pour les acheteurs présents en salle de vente. La commission de 22.5% s’applique aussi aux achats effectués sur une plateforme internet « live bidding ». En cas de livraison en Suisse, au prix d’achat global (comprenant le prix d’adjudication, les frais acheteurs, et les frais d’expédition) doit être appliqué la T.V.A. Suisse de 7.7% sur les monnaies et les médailles d’argent et de bronze. Tous droits et taxes dus à l’étranger sont à la charge de l’acheteur. Le paiement est dû immédiatement après l’adjudication. 1% d’intérêt sera facturé en cas de retard. Le transfert de propriété n’est effectif qu’après le paiement intégral. Les ordres d’achats inférieurs à 80% de nos estimations ne seront pas prix en compte. A montant égal, les ordres d’achat écrits sont prioritaires.

Chaque adjudicataire s’engage pour ses achats, et il ne peut prétendre avoir porté enchères pour le compte d’un tiers. L’adjudication est un engagement irrévo¬cable pour l’acquéreur.

Les descriptions des lots, et leurs états de conser-vation, sont données en bonne foi. L’authenticité des monnaies est garantie. Toute réclamation justifiée sera prise en compte pendant les huit jours qui suivent la remise des monnaies. L’envoi des lots adjugés sera effectué, après paiement, aux frais et aux risques de l’acheteur.

Conditions of Sale

All sales will be made through payment in Swiss Francs, with the addition of a buyer’s premium of 22.5% on the hammer price. Any bidders attending the sale in person, as floor bidders, will have a reduced buyer’s premium of only 22.5%. There will be no additional charge for all successful live internet bids. For all lots delivered in Switzerland there is an additional Swiss VAT of 7.7% due on the hammer price and on the buyer’s premium for silver and bronze coins, and for medals. The purchaser is responsible for all taxes and fees due for delivery of lots outside of Switzerland. Payment is due imme-diately following conclusion of the sale. Full title to purchases is only obtained upon full payment. A charge of 1% per month will be assessed for delayed payments. Bids below 80% of the estimated prices will not be accepted. Written bids take preference over room bids.

Buyers are personally responsible for their own purchases and cannot claim to act on the account or instructions of a third party. Adjudication occurs on the fall of the hammer and commits the bidder to acceptance of the lot.

The lot descriptions, including the degree of preservation, are opinions and made in good faith. The authenticity of all coins is guaranteed. Justified complaints can only be considered if made within eight days of the auction. Upon receipt of full payment, shipment of lots will be arranged for the purchaser at his expense and risk. In general, the usual conditions applied to auctions held in Zürich apply here.

Shipping to the Russian Federation will only be made at the recipient’s own risk.

Exclusive jurisdiction for any legal proceedings shall be Zürich 1. Although the Conditions of Sale are provided in English, French and German, only the German text is legally valid. The bidder accepts these conditions of sale by the submission of a bid, whether verbal or written.
