Gold coins and watches sell out at McTear's auction in Glasgow!  With approximately 19 sovereigns and 12 half sovereigns, The Watches & Coins Auction was sure to draw in the collectors, and that it did! Lot 979 was the sovereign dated 1879 and it far outsold most of its competitors achieving £272 including buyer’s premium. The true star of the gold coins was however lot 1026, the sovereign dated 1937 which sold for an astonishing £950 hammer. The top selling watch was lot 981, the gentleman’s gold Longines wrist watch that made £420 including fees. One that got the football fans excited was lot 1015, the Glasgow Charity Cup Medal, this sold for £320 hammer, three times its lower estimate.
