One of the things that I like most about old sales and auction catalogs is the use of themes. They will carry titles such as "Property of a Lady" or "Collection of a European Diplomat" and I''ve always felt that added a bit depth, and interest to an item. In that vein I could describe this item as the "Property of an International Traveler". All of the coins and artifacts that are marked with a stock number beginning with "IT" belong to a gentleman who is indeed an international traveler. And his travels have allowed him to pick up some choice pieces from not only the United States, but from around the world.
