    1968-69 Shirriff Coins Group Lot of 70 with 20 Short Prints. Popular throughout the 1960s, the Shirriff Hockey coins evolved into one of the great collectible premiums available during the later years of the Original Six era. With the NHL's expansion in 1967 the coin issue instantly became more expansive and swelled to a whopping 176 coins for the 1968-69 release. We don't know if it was carelessness or an influx of work that went into handling all of the extra teams and players, but this issue is wrought with short prints, making assembling a complete set virtually impossible. Here we present a vast collection of 70 coins from the issue, including 20 short print coins that we cannot stress the rarity of enough. The short prints include: Toronto -- #'s 16 Jim McKenny (x4), 17 Mike Byers (x2), 18 Pierre Pilote (x4). Montreal -- #'s 14 Jacques Lemaire (x2), 15 Henri Richard, 17 Serge Savard (x3). Boston -- #'s 13 Dallas Smith, 14 Gary Doak (x2), 15 Glen Sather. Perfect for the collector looking to assemble this extremely tough set. Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - $2,500.
