Al Kowsky Posted July 2, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 2, 2022 Does anyone remember a large collection of Roman imperial & provincial coins that sold at a number of auction houses several years ago, called The Morris Collection, & sometimes The Phil Peck Collection 🤔? For the longest time it remained a mystery who Morris or Phil Peck was 🤨. Then it was brought to light that Phil Peck was a life-long coin collector who worked as a curator of The Money Museum at The Chase Manhattan Bank in NYC. He also worked as a librarian in NYC. After being admitted to a senior care facility his coin collection was auctioned off. It was also suggested that Morris was his brother, but I have never seen confirmation of this. Never the less, I ended up winning four coins at auction from the Morris or Phil Peck collection, two of which I ended up selling at auction about a 18 months ago. Pictured below are the two coins I kept 😊. This coin was put into an "economy" slab, most likely by Heritage, fortunately it come with a paper 2 X 2 envelope that had the weight & diameter written on it by Morris or Peck 🙂. Egypt-Alexandria, Philip II, AD 247-249 (dated year 6, AD 248/9). Billon Tetradrachm: 24.37 mm, 12.50 gm, 11 h. Reverse: Homonoia with cornucopia. Emmett 3593. This coin was also put into an "economy" slab, NGC 4884217-005, AU*, again most likely by Heritage. The coin looked terrible in the slab so I cracked it out 😏. Pictured below are the two coins I sold at CNG 453. This coin sold for $325.00 This coin sold for the bargain price of $106.00 Do any other NVMIS FORVMS members have coins from the Morris or Peck collections 🤔? 15 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
