The May 2013 Collector’s Series Sale

Terms and Conditions of Sale This is a public auction and mail-bid sale held by SPINK, who are licensed and bonded auctioneers. SPINK may not withdraw any lot after a call for bids has been made with respect to that lot, however, the consignor of the property included in the lot (or any other lot) may bid on and purchase the lot for his/her own account. If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. 1. 2.

The placing of a bid constitutes full acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale by the bidder. The highest bidder acknowledged by SPINK shall be the buyer. In the event of any dispute between bidders, SPINK may, at its sole discretion, immediately put the lot up for sale again. SPINK’S decision shall be final and binding upon all bidders. A buyer’s premium equal to 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $2,000.00 and 15% of the excess bid price will be added to each invoice and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. All bids are to be per lot as numbered in this catalog. SPINK reserves the right to group two or more lots together and to withdraw, prior to call for bids, any lot(s) from the sale. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only, and SPINK reserves the right to reject any bid or advance the bidding at its discretion. SPINK may not withdraw any lot after a call for bids has been made with respect to that lot, however, the consignor of the property included in the lot (or any other lot) may bid on and purchase the lot for his/her own account. If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. SPINK may have made advances and loans available to certain consignors and bidders in the sale. SPINK reserves the right to bid on any lot in the sale. Additionally, SPINK may or may not have financial interest in any of the lot(s) in the sale. All sales are strictly for cash, check and bank/wire transfer in United States dollars; however, SPINK will only accept cash payments under $10,000.00. SPINK offers clients the option of paying by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and American Express only) in United States Dollars for a convenience charge of two percent (2%) for Visa and MasterCard and four percent (4%) for American Express, up to a total of $30,000.00. Credit card payments will only be accepted if (a) the purchase is made by the card holder, (b) any purchased items to be shipped are shipped to the cardholder’s verified billing address, (c) floor bidders present their credit cards and (d) all returns are governed by the terms and conditions of the sale. Payment is due and payable immediately upon receipt of the auction invoice or, if payment is to be made at the auction site, simultaneously with receipt of the purchased items. SPINK reserves the right to void a sale if payment in full of the invoice is not received by SPINK within fifteen (15) days of the date of invoice. A late charge in the amount of the lesser of 18% per annum and the maximum lawful rate will be charged on the invoice total if payment is not received within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice. All lots are subject to applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate resale certificates are on file with SPINK. Shipping, handling and administration charges will be added to invoices for lots delivered by mail. All lots will be shipped via U.S. Express Mail to Post Office boxes, via Federal Express to street addresses, and FedEx ground for bulky large

lots (in the U.S. only). Purchases shipped via FedEx will not be covered by SPINK insurance in the event that the buyer has placed a “signature release” on file with FedEx. Buyer will be responsible for total purchase price in the event of loss. SPINK cannot be and is not responsible for the loss of any merchandise shipped outside the United States and therefore insurance on any items to be shipped outside the United States is solely the responsibility of the buyer. It is also the responsibility of the buyer to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they are in his/her possession. Risk of loss shall be borne by the buyer following shipment of the items and SPINK assumes no liability for merchandise lost, stolen or damaged while in the possession of a party to whom merchandise has been shipped. For international shipments, all duties/taxes/fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. In the event a successful bidder fails to pay the charges due, SPINK reserves the right to resell the merchandise and the buyer agrees to pay for the reasonable cost of such a sale including a 10% seller’s commission, and also to pay any difference between the resale price and the winning price of his/her previously successful bid. SPINK reserves the right to require payment in full before delivery of the merchandise to the buyer. Bidder personally guarantees payment, and if a corporation, an officer or principal in the corporation agrees to personally guarantee payment. Title to any purchased items remains with SPINK until all invoices are paid in full. SPINK reserves the right to await clearance of any check used for payment before delivery of any item and a $25.00 charge will be applied for any check that fails to clear. SPINK reserves the right to refuse to honor or reject any bid which, in its opinion, is not submitted in good faith, or, as the case dictates, is not supported by satisfactory references, as SPINK in its sole discretion shall determine. SPINK further reserves the right to ban any bidder from participation in its sales for any reason deemed appropriate in its sole discretion. No minors may participate in any SPINK sales. Bids will be executed for mail bidders at one advance over the next highest bid in competition with floor and/or internet bidders, until the maximum bid is executed for the mail bidder, or until the lot is sold. No buy or unlimited bids will be accepted. No additional commission (except for the buyer’s premium) is charged for executing mail bids. SPINK cannot and does not assume any responsibility for errors made in the amount bid or lot numbers listed, so check your bid sheet and online submission carefully. When identical mail bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. SPINK may reopen the bidding on a lot under the following circumstances: (a) SPINK has failed to execute correctly a mail bid; (b) A party purchasing the lot on the floor has done so in error; (c) Where a protest is made after the

hammer has fallen but before bidding has commenced on the next lot; (d) Where the auctioneer has determined that he/she has overlooked a party still bidding on the lot but before the calling of the next lot; and (e) At the discretion of the auctioneer. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer’s decision shall be final. Agents executing bids on behalf of clients will be held responsible for all purchases made on behalf of clients unless otherwise arranged prior to the sale. The same protections applicable to SPINK shall apply to each officer, director and employee of SPINK unless such individual shall be convicted of knowingly and intentionally selling false or stolen goods. The descriptions provided in the catalog are intended solely for the use of those bidders who do not have the opportunity to view the lots prior to bidding. All photographs in the catalog are as accurate as can be reproduced with today’s technology; however, they cannot be relied upon for exact reproduction of color. All bidders who have inspected the lots prior to the auction will not be granted any return privileges, except for reasons of genuineness. It is presumed that all floor bidders have inspected the lots prior to bidding. Therefore, lots purchased by floor bidders are sold “AS IS” and may not be returned. Floor Bidders include those bidders acting as agents for others. Additionally, SPINK reserves the right to describe items differently than the descriptions shown in the catalog should such items be consigned to any future auction. All the lots are sold as genuine. For the purpose of this sale, “genuine” is defined as not faked or forged and SPINK will not knowingly sell any item that has been “repaired’, “restored”, “processed”, “cleaned”, “pressed” or “conserved” in any way without disclosure of such facts to the potential buyer. The following conditions apply to requests for expertization of philatelic items: (a) Mail bidders are asked to advise SPINK of any extension requests at the time of placing their bids; (b) Floor bidders must advise SPINK of any extensions in writing at the time of lot settlement; (c) SPINK will submit all items so requested by successful bidders to the reputable authority of their choice; For United States stamps, the Philatelic Foundation and the Professional Stamp Experts are the accepted authorities. (d) Purchasers of items submitted for expertization must pay as part of the purchase price all charges for expertization, including postage and handling; (e) Purchasers of items to be expertized must make payment in full immediately upon purchase prior to expertizing; Refunds will be made promptly for all sums if in the unlikely event an item is returned with a negative opinion; (f) Requests for expertization of stamps with certificates dated within the last five (5) years of the sale date will not be granted; (g) No lot may be returned due to a certification service grading a stamp differently than the grade stated in the auction description; (h) No lot will be accepted as a return from expertization if the item is indelibly marked as being altered or fraudulent by the expertizing authority; and (i) No lot will be accepted as a return, for any reason whatsoever, including extension returns, after four (4) months from the sale date. Any exceptions to this time limitation must be agreed to in writing at SPINK sole discretion.

19. No lots may be returned without a written request by the successful bidder and the written approval of SPINK. In the unlikely event of returning a lot, SPINK must receive notification of the buyer’s intent within three (3) days of the buyer’s receipt of the lot. The following lots may not be returned for any reason whatsoever: (a) lots containing ten or more items; (b) lots described as having faults or defects because of the faults described or any others, including lots described as “repaired”, “corroded”, “holed”, “whizzed”, or similar damage, except for non-authenticity; (c) illustrated lots because of centering, margins, etc. or other factors shown in the illustrations; (d) lots described “AS IS”, including third party graded coins or banknotes (i.e. PCGS, NGC, ANACS, ICG); (e) lots valued primarily for the bullion content; (f) lots examined by postal viewers; and (g) any philatelic extension lot unless the conditions set forth in Item 18 above is complied with fully. Except for lots placed on extension, as per the conditions of Item 18 above, no lots may be returned for any reason whatsoever after thirty (30) days from sale date. Late payment for purchase may, at SPINK option, be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges. If any disputes arise regarding payment, authenticity, or description between the bidder and SPINK, SPINK at its sole discretion, may submit the disputed matter to binding arbitration in Dallas, Texas, to which the bidder, by placing a bid and hereby accepting these Terms and Conditions of Sale, agrees to be bound. 20. United States coins and currency will not, in conformity with the law, be opened at less than face value. 21. The auctioneer reserves the right to postpone the sale by auction for a reasonable period of time as a result of any significant event which, in the sole discretion of the auctioneer, makes it advisable to postpone the event. No prospective bidder or prospective buyer shall have recourse as a result of any postponement 22. In the event SPINK refers an invoice(s) to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay SPINK attorney’s fees, court costs, witness fees and other costs incurred by SPINK. 23. ThESE TERMS OF SALE ShALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITh ThE LAWS OF ThE STATE OF TEXAS, WIThOUT GIVING REGARD TO ThE PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW.

Justinian standing facing, crowned and wearing a loros, holding cross potent on two steps and akakia, CONO PA in ex. DOC 8c, S.1249. Near Extremely Fine An important development in Christian iconography, this coin marks the earliest numismatic depiction of Christ. During the early Christian period, it was normal practice to represent Christ only through symbolism. The official view of this matter shifted in 692. In that year, the Quinisext Council (Council in Trullon) was called by the emperor Justinian II to reconcile the differences between Eastern and Western church practices and to help repair the growing schism between Constantinople and Rome. One of the issues debated by the Council was how should Christ be portrayed. The Council ruled that from thereon, He should be depicted in human form. It is not known whether the Council’s ruling directly influenced the striking of this coin, but certainly there is a strong connection. The court at Constantinople was more than likely already predisposed to the portrayal of Christ in human form, and the court’s desire was made manifest in ink and metal. Est. 4000-5000

King Zog, a Muslim, married the American-Hungarian, and Roman Catholic, Countess Géraldine Margit Virginia Olga Mária Apponyi de Nagyappony in Tirana in a ceremony witnessed by Count Galeazzo Ciano, Italian envoy and son-in-law of Il Duce. The two motored off to their honeymoon in an open, scarlet Mercedes 540K, a gift from Hitler. The apparent “chumminess” with fascist Italy and Nazi Germany was more an enforced political and economic necessity of Albania, who had grown fully dependent on Italy during the worldwide depression of the 1930’s. Zog, chaffing under the influence, often defied Italy’s demands, while in 1938 he opened Albania’s borders to Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi persecution. On April 7, 1939, Italy invaded Albania. It was two days after the birth of their son and the royal couple fled in exile.

Early Coinage of Buddha’s Homeland India. Shakya janapada. Anonymous, 600-500 BC. AR 5 Shana. 7.06 gms. Ornate symbol at center with seven or more bankers’ marks around. Rajgor 535. Attractive medium-gray, Extremely Fine.\nFirst discovered in Narhan in Uttar Pradesh, these Shakya issues constitute perhaps the earliest coinage of India. The Shakya janapada was set on India’s border with Nepal, north of the modern town of Gorakhpur. Historically, the region is most significant as the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, who was born in Lumbini and grew up, some 10 miles away, in the Shakya capital of Kapilvastu. Buddha’s father, Suddhodana was the elected ruler of Shakya. “There lived once upon a time, a king of the Shakya, a scion of the solar race, whose name was Suddhodana. He was pure of conduct and beloved of the Shakya like the autumn moon. He had a wife, splendid, beautiful and steadfast who was called the Great Maya, from her resemblance to Maya the goddess” - Buddha-carnita-kavya I, 1-2 of the second century Indian philosopher and poet, Asvaghosa. It is possible that these early silver coins circulated during the lifetime of Suddhodana and his son, Gautama Buddha. Shakya was later annexed by the Kingdom of Kosala. Est. 225-275 India.

India. Assam. Shiva Simha (1715-1744). Round Rupee, SE 1649, year 14 (1727). Rangpur. 11.36 gms. Persian legends both sides, lion right lower obverse. KM 74. Very Rare. Extremely Fine. While Assam’s coins are generally octagonal with Bengali or Devanagari legends, other shapes and other scripts were also occasionally used. Following a failed attempt by the Mughal Empire to annex Assam, Ahom script denominated Assamese coinage from 1663 to 1696 — motivated likely by a rise in Ahom nationalism. With the coronation of Rudra Simha, an ardent Hindu, Sanskrit inscriptions again became the rule on Assam’s coins, with Ahom used only on some rare ceremonial issues. Persian legends, meanwhile, first appear during Shiva Simha’s reign on silver rupees of the Gargaon and Rangpur mints. Two types are squarish, while the type above is the only round issue, and the first coin to name the mint of Rangpur, the Assamese capital founded by Rudra Simha in 1707. These rare Persian legend types emulate Mughal coins and were likely conceived to greater facilitate trade. Persian legends only occur again on square and octagonal coins of Rajesvara Simha (17511769) in both silver and gold. Est. 800-1000

$2.5 Gold Gem 1834 Classic $2.5

430 430

1834 $2.50 Classic. Breen 6140. Large Head. NGC MS65. Vibrant golden yellow with surfaces that are highly reflective in the obverse fields, and frosty in the central design elements. This is a very attractive example of the first year of issue for this distinctive “No Motto” type. By 1834 the price of gold had risen to a point where the bullion value contained in US gold coins was more than the face value. This motivated gold dealers to acquire vast quantities of US gold coins and as a consequence, most of the early mintages disappeared from circulation. In order to provide gold coins that would actually circulate Congress passed the Act of June 28th, 1834 which contained provisions lowering the amount of gold contained in the $2.50 pieces of that year. To clearly differentiate the new coins from the old ones a significant design change was made - the Latin motto on the reverse was completely eliminated. Small Head and Large Head varieties exist. The Large Head can easily be distinguished by the indentation in the two curls near the back of Liberty’s head. The major grading services report only two 1834 $2.50 gold pieces in higher grades, both just one point higher than the current example. The last time a comparable piece appeared in auction was back in August of 2010. You may have to wait years to acquire a better example. Est. 20000-30000

Impressive Territorial Gold

1861 $5 Clark Gruber & Company, Denver. “PIKES PEAK” on Liberty’s coronet. PCGS AU50. Sharply struck near the outer portions, typically weak central devices. In the early days of the California gold rush, gold dust and gold nuggets were the only real medium of exchange available. This proved to be cumbersome way of doing business. In the eastern states gold dust and nuggets could be minted into much more convenient to use gold coins. For Californians, who had no U.S. Mint, the process of shipping gold dust and nuggets east to be converted into coins could take up to three months. Private mints soon stepped in to fill this void, and the same thing happened in the Territory of Jefferson (renamed Colorado after 1861). In 1860, Austin Clark, Milton Clark, and Emanuel Gruber obtained minting equipment in Philadelphia and New York and had it shipped to Denver City where they set up an “Assay and Coinage Office.” The coins they produced were well received, as they contained 1% more gold than standard U.S. Mint products. As in San Francisco, where the U.S. Mint eventually replaced the private mints, the same thing happened in Denver. Est. 3000-5000

Eagle, shield and banner. Eight devil’s heads in the bottom border. Printed by the “ADVERTISER JOB OFFICE BROWNSVILLE, N.T.” (Nebraska Territory). IU. EF. The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 left the decision of whether the then territories of Kansas and Nebraska would become slave or free states based on how the citizens there voted. Anti-slavery forces poured into both territories which led to the violence in “Bleeding Kansas” during the period from 1854 to1861. The purpose of this land company may have been to recruit anti-slavery settlers who would then vote for Kansas to be a free state. It is also possible that the promoters of this certificate were attempting to populate this area in the hopes that the Pacific Railroad might be built in or near the location of the town, significantly increasing land values.

His opposition to slavery, the successes, hardships and dangers of his exploring expeditions, and his part in the conquest of California led to his nomination for the presidency in 1856 by the Republicans, but he was defeated.

Spuyten Duyvil & Port Morris RR (NY) 1873. Proxy. Blue paper. Signed by Cornelius Vanderbilt (the “Commodore”), William H. Vanderbilt (his eldest son), and Cornelius Vanderbilt (his grandson). IU. EF.’The Commodore’ (1794-1877) founded the family fortune in steam ferries and railroads in and around New York and became one of the richest men of his time. In 1818, Vanderbilt was just 24 and already in business. That year he began working for Thomas Gibbons running cut-rate steamship lines between Manhattan and New Brunswick. They ran into trouble with Fulton & Livingston, the line founded by steamship pioneer Robert Fulton, which had a monopoly on Hudson River transport. Gibbons and Vanderbilt were sued, but won when the case reached the Supreme Court. Cornelius Vanderbilt II (1843 1899) was an American socialite, heir, businessman. He was the favorite grandson of “Commodore” Cornelius Vanderbilt, who left him $5 million, and the eldest son of William Henry Vanderbilt, who left him close to $70 million. He succeeded both of them as head of the New York Central Railroad in 1885. All three signatures rarely appear together on a railroad related document.

Harlem Heirs Claim Over 100 Acres of Prime Manhattan Real Estate

676 676

Harlem Associated Heirs Title Company (MD) 1892. 66 shs. No.1010. Red. Illustration of a 1778 British map of Manhattan Island. IU. VF+ details, four short edge splits backed with archival paper. There is a stain in the upper right corner. We know of only one other example. This certificate represents the claim of various heirs for over 1000 acres of land and water in Manhattan from 74th to 128th streets. Based on a land grant given in 1666 (the year the Spink was founded), by English Governor Richard Nichols to five men. Potential heirs would sign over their shares in the property to the company, then pay a fee, with the fees being used to pay the expenses of pursuing the claim in the courts. This certificate would entitle the share holder to a portion of the proceeds. If the claim was successful the value of the land at the time could have been many millions of dollars. A certificate similar to this one was featured on an episode of the PBS television show, History Detectives, which aired on October 2011. Based on the research done by the History Detectives, no court ruling in this particular case was found. However, decisions were found in similar cases brought by other groups of Harlem heirs in which the courts ruled that the heirs’ claims were indeed legitimate. The courts would not enforce them due to the complexities of sorting out the titles and heirs over a period of several hundred years, and due to the possible repercussions this could have had on the stock market during a period of recession. A fascinating piece of financial and judicial history. Est. 1750-2500

NATIONAL BANK NOTES

The Artesian Collection of National Bank Notes No two collectors are exactly alike, and their reasons for creating a collection are just as varied. At first glance the Artesian Collection appears to be a diverse grouping of unrelated Nationals with no central theme. Geographically, the notes ranged from Alabama to Wyoming. The types represented covered the full range from Original Series to 1929 Type II Nationals. Upon further inspection several themes become apparent. Our consignor had a deep and abiding appreciation for long, complex and interesting bank titles, regardless of location. He liked Nationals from state capitals. Not everyone recognizes the artistic merits of National bank notes, but our consignor had a wonderful eye for beautiful title layouts. He also recognized rarity when he saw it, and he acquired scarcer Nationals when the opportunities arose. Another central theme was Grange banks. In the 1870s American farmer's wives and their husbands joined The Patrons of Husbandry, an organization that sponsored dances, fairs and lectures. It was a social organization for farmers. In the 1880s, the Grange became a popular throughout agricultural areas of the United States. It was initially supposed to be non-political and dedicated to taking women from their "enslaved role" into full participation in the agrarian movement with men. The Grange movement soon took on political overtones, attacking railroads for exploiting farmers. It helped elected politicians sympathetic to farmers who worked to regulate fares. Co-ops eventually began to take the place of the Grange, and to operate on a nonprofit basis. This allowed farmers to pool their resources and purchase items more cheaply, and to operate Credit Unions that acted like banks. The word “Grange” in a National Bank title clearly suggested that the bank officials might have a more sympathetic point of view regarding farmers. This would have been conducive to doing business in any agrarian community. Our consignor found this theme to be compelling and you will be hard-pressed to find a more comprehensive collection of Nationals with the word “Grange” in the title. Collectors are almost always attracted to rare and desirable notes, and our consignor was no exception. Some of the highlights in this collection include the Yuma, Arizona $10 1902 Plain Back; the Greenville, Mississippi $5 Brown Back with the “Circus Poster” layout, the Davenport, Iowa $100 Red Seal; the Annapolis, Maryland $10 1902 Plain Back; and a very impressive “discovery” note, the Ely, Nevada $5 1902 Date Back. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to add a few great Nationals to your collection.

An attractive state capital red seal on a very scarce bank. Previously offered as Lot 19683 of Heritage CAA's Jan. 9, 2003 sale, in which it realized $2,400.00 plus the buyer's premium. This note has a striking appearance. Unlike most 1902 series notes, the city is not enclosed in a 'tombstone'. The 'open layout' is reminiscent of an early 1882 Series $5 Brownback. This bank was in business from 1883 to 1906, only issuing 1882 Brown Backs and 1902 Red Seals. The census shows two 1882 Brown Backs and eight 1902 Red Seals reported for this bank. Est. 1000-1500

Clean and attractive, with solid paper, good color, and pen signatures. Two pinholes to the left of the portrait are the only detractions. Among National Bank Note enthusiasts, few notes are as exciting as $5 Brown Backs with circus poster layouts for the bank's title and location. Only found on the issues of a small number of banks, they are thought to be the most attractive layouts of all the interesting designs found on $5 Brown Backs. Two circus poster notes appear in the census for this bank, one in VG and the other in Fine. Accordingly, we feel comfortable asserting that this discovery note is the highest grade circus poster known on this bank, and the only one of the three which is an attractive high grade note. The Fine circus poster on this bank was auctioned as Lot 1147 of Lyn Knight's Nov. 17, 2006 sale, fetching $9,500.00 plus the buyer's premium. Est. 10000-15000

The May 2013 Collector’s Series Sale

AUTOGRAPHS

A Final Offering of Treasure Trove Items Relating to General George Armstrong Custer (Note: portions of this introductory text are repeated from our August 2012 Collector’s Series Sale where we sold the first part of the Custer treasure trove.) A young lady walked into our offices on West 57th Street in New York. She placed a shoe box on the table and she said that the contents of the box all related to George Armstrong Custer, the Civil War hero and legendary Indian fighter who died in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. She opened the box and began showing me the contents. Two things became crystal clear - she understood the significance of each item, and she was knowledgeable and passionate about the life and times of General Custer and his wife, “Libbie.” The box contained checks, drafts, military orders, and the Custer’s personal account book. There were several stamped envelopes that had previously contained personal correspondence sent from the General to his wife and from her to him. She showed me a letter written entirely in the General’s hand. The last items to come out of the box were some medals and badges. She picked up the final object, placed it in my hand, and said “This just may be Libbie Custer’s own Michigan 7th Cavalry Regimental badge, given to her by the General himself. Libbie Custer describes it in her book, Tenting on the Plains, and she is seen wearing it in several photographs.” My instincts told me that this could well be a very significant item, but was it really what she thought it might be? I had to ask the question that was on mind from the moment the box was opened “How did you come into possession of these items? What follows is a condensed version of what she told me: “Elizabeth Bacon Custer long outlived her husband, General George Armstrong Custer. She made her primary residence at 71 Park Avenue in New York City. Elizabeth and the General had no children, and the majority of her family resided in or around Monroe, Michigan, save for a niece in Brooklyn. As was customary back in that time, Ms. Custer had a personal assistant (referred to frequently in news articles and other writings as a "companion" or a maid) named Margaret Flood. Margaret lived with Elizabeth until Elizabeth’s death at age 91 in 1933. When she originally began working for Elizabeth, Margaret was single and I'm sure her maiden name is somewhere in all of the notes and letters I have. However, she later married and her husband, Patrick Flood, moved in with them. I have a letter from Mrs. Custer to Patrick, asking what his intentions are for Margaret. Margaret and Elizabeth were extremely close, as evidenced by the many pieces of personal correspondence I have. Most helpful are the letters Elizabeth wrote to Margaret while she was down in Daytona, Florida for a short period, recuperating from an illness. Margaret was left a number of things upon Elizabeth's death, though I would assume they were nothing thought to be of particular value, at least at the time. I have a letter from an attorney to Margaret does identify that this occurred. I do know Elizabeth donated General Custer's items of significance to West Point,

www.Spink.com

such as his medal of honor, his sword, etc. She also donated other items, such as a desk, to the Custer Museum. Elizabeth published the many letters she received from General Custer during wartime. The book, "The Custer Story: The Life and Intimate Letters of General George A. Custer and His Wife Elizabeth," was written by Margeurite Merington at Elizabeth's urging. It took many years and was finally completed in 1950. The whereabouts of the original letters are unknown. However, the envelopes, along with notebooks, stamps, and photos, were stored in a large cardboard box that ended up in the house in Brooklyn with Margaret and Patrick. Many of the envelopes have Margaret Flood's handwriting on them; I would assume she helped Merington over the years in sorting through the letters. Likewise, as Merington completed the book in 1950, many years after Elizabeth's passing, it seems likely that she would have returned them to Margaret and Patrick. Elizabeth had no heirs, Margaret was still alive, and she was like family to Elizabeth. Similar to the Custers, Margaret and Patrick Flood also had no children. However, Margaret did have a niece - her sister's daughter, Mary - who moved into the Brooklyn house to care for them as they grew old. When the Floods died, they left their house and its contents to Mary, who lived there for the rest of her life. She also had no children. My family came to know Mary many years ago when I was a young child. She was the aunt by marriage of a family friend. I came to know her as "Aunt Mary" while I was growing up, though she was of no blood relation to me. My parents remained close to Aunt Mary and saw her as regularly as if she were related to us. As Aunt Mary advanced in age, my mother visited her more frequently. On one of many visits in the mid 2000s, Aunt Mary gave my mother the box containing the envelopes and a box of Elizabeth Custer's personal effects. (She thought I would be interested in the envelopes and stamps because I liked "old things".) In a smaller box were some old war medals. Nothing terribly exciting, at least to any of us. These boxes had sat in her hall closet for many years and I guess Aunt Mary no longer wanted them. In fact, the box containing the envelopes had long ago suffered water damage; I still have it in all its glory, as I stored its contents in it for the many years since. Mary gave us the boxes before she passed away in 2007. My mother was appointed by Aunt Mary's will as her executor, and she settled Mary's affairs as Aunt Mary had directed her to, including the sale of the house. I was given a box of "old things" and my mother was given a box of personal effects by my "Aunt" who was of no relation to me by blood but was as close as family. My parents cared for her in her elder years, just as she had cared for her elderly aunt and uncle - who just happened to be the caretakers of Elizabeth Custer in her elder years. In a way, the envelopes are of most interest to me, as the letters they once contained showed the devotion of a man to his wife, and they were passed along in a chain of caring over the years. ” Before our August 2012 auction our consignor was undecided about selling the entire contents of the box. She chose to give us all of the medals and badges, and a representative sampling of the documents and photographs. As she previously stated, her personal interest was in the envelopes, and she indicated that she would perhaps keep all of the remaining items. The results of our August 2012 sale showed her that there was a great deal of interest in Custer material. This convinced her that the rest of the items would find willing buyers who were as caring and passionate about Libbie and General Custer as our consignor was. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to obtain these important Custer items. Again, we wish to thank John Beckendorf for his invaluable help, and for the wonderful article her wrote about the Custer badges in the Spring 2013 edition of the SPINK INSIDER.

1124 Custer, George Armstrong. Desirable Autograph Document Signed “George A. Custer,” 1 page, narrow oblong 4to, Topeka, KS, November 1, 1870. A partly printed promissory note in which Custer agrees to pay within three months “Four Hundred Dollars with interest at ten per cent / Value received, This note is secured by a mortgage legally stamped.” Lovely vignette of Liberty with cap, flag, and fasces at left; dog below. Black on blue paper, signed in blue ink. Very lightly machine canceled over signature. Edge wear, VG. This note may relate to entries in Custer’s ledger book (which we sold in our August 2012 Collector’s Series Auction). Clearly Custer and other officers were investing in land just as the railroads - in this case, probably the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe - were reaching into the former wilderness. One of only two known to us. The other example (Lot 1080 in our August 2012), perhaps a shade nicer, realized $6,250. Est. 3500-5000

1125 Custer, George Armstrong. 1) “G. A. Custer” autograph.

George Armstrong Custer in white shirt and tie. Sepia print on matte paper. 6” x 8 .” 3) 12page self cover pamphlet, Westchester - Hudson River - West Point by Charles Francis Bates with General Custer on the cover. The last two items were found in the “Custer shoebox” stuck together. There is some damage around the edge of the print that occurred when it was removed from back of the pamphlet, and the pamphlet has some water stains and light damage as well. 4) The Last Battle of the Sioux Nation by Usher L. Burdick, Worzalla Publishing, 1929. Signed by D. F. Barry, famous Western photographer, on the day before the stock market crash. Photos of the General and Mrs. Custer appear in the book. Very Fine condition. 5) D. F. Barry’s Catalogue of Noted Indian Chiefs. 16pp. The cover is missing a small piece, but otherwise quite nice. Est. 1000-1500

Custer / Brevet Major General Commanding,” 1 page, 8vo, Headquarters Third Cavalry Division, Appomattox Court House, VA, April 9, 1865. On the very day that Custer was present for the surrender of the armies of Robert E Lee, he addresses his men: “With profound gratitude toward the God of battles, by whose blessings our enemies have been humbled and our arms rendered triumphant, your Commanding General avails himself of this his first opportunity to express his admiration of the heroic manner in which you have passed through the series of battles which to-day resulted in the surrender of the enemy’s entire army. The record established by your indomitable courage is unparalleled in the annals of war...During the past six months...you have captured from the enemy, in open battle, one hundred and eleven pieces of field artillery, sixty-five battle-flags, and upwards of ten thousand prisoners...You have never lost a gun, never lost a color, and have never been defeated...When the war is ended and the task of the historian begins...I only ask that my name may be written as that of the Commander of the Third Cavalry Division.” This document was quoted entirely by Whittaker in his 1876 biography of Custer.

In November 1868, U.S. Army cavalry and infantry troops from forts Bascom in New Mexico, Lyon in Colorado, and Dodge in Kansas, were ordered to converge on the Indian Territory and strike the Southern Cheyenne and the Southern Arapaho. The main force was the Seventh Cavalry led by Lt. Col. George A. Custer. While the other columns were delayed, Custer’s Seventh Cavalry set out alone on November 23, the day the letter once contained in this envelope was written. The ensuing Battle of Washita River on November 27, 1868 was regarded as the first substantial U.S. victory in the Southern Plains War. Custer reported killing 103 warriors, but the Cheyenne said that their casualties were substantially lower. Est. 500-1000

Irish surgeon, founding member of the Reform Club, accompanied Napoleon in his exile to St. Helena, becoming his physician; served aboard HMS Bellerophon, the ship on which Napoleon surrendered in 1815; dismissed in 1818 on suspicion of being the former Emperor’s spy; author of Napoleon in Exile, or A Voice From St. Helena (1822) in which he accuses Sir Hudson Lowe of mistreating Napoleon. Autograph Letter Signed “Barry E. O’Meara”. 2 1/5 pages, 4to, [London], February 8, 1826. He writes Emmanuel-AugustinDieudonné-Joseph, Comte de Las Cases in Paris: “I am much obliged to you for the introduction of your sensible and well informed friend Dr. Grimaud. I introduced him to Mr. Lawrence, who felt great pleasure in conducting him through St. Bartholomew hospital (to which he is a surgeon)…Mr. Lawrence speaks very highly of the pamphlet upon artificial anatomical preparations and expresses his conviction of their ultimately becoming of great utility in this country, where subjects are so very difficult to procure…I am much obliged by your kind offer of your services in making an application to [French financier] M. Laffitte, which I accept with great pleasure, more especially as I am suffering under considerable temporary embarrassment, caused by the failure of Sir Walter Stirling’s bank…” O’Meara adds in a postscript: “You are mistaken about the appointment of the ex-Governor [of St. Helena, Sir Hudson Lowe, who had dismissed him] he is not governor of Ceylon, he is merely employed as a major general and second in command there…It is said that the assassin who attempted your life has been arrested. Is that so?...” Age-toned, with seal hole and some fold wear, otherwise Very Good. French atlas-maker and chamberlain to Napoleon, Las Cases had been on St. Helena with O’Meara and the exiled emperor, and had published what was the canonical account of the exile. Dr. William Lawrence, a friend of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Shelley, whose views on Vitalism or “animal electricity” influenced the writing of “Frankenstein”, rose to become England’s top surgeon. O’Meara’s comments on the paucity of anatomical subjects in no exaggeration; three years earlier, the infamous William Burke was hung from the gibbet for murdering vagrants so he could sell their corpses to medical schools.
