Coins stolen while travelling from London to New York

NAC would like to report some coins that have gone missing that were sent from our London offices to New York via TNT.

The coins are as follows:

Carmagnola Ludovico II of Saluzzo, 1475-1504 with Margherita of Foix. Tallero 1503, AR
Urbino Francesco Maria I of the Rovere, 1508-1516 Ducato, AV
Pavia Liutprando, 712-744, Tremisse, AV

All coins were sold in our Milan auction A85.

We were dealing with TNT directly, but they have informed us that even after searches they cannot find the missing consignment and are now treating the coins as officially lost.

Thank you,
