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


317_FrtMat_Layout 1 9/15/13 12:34 PM Page iii

OCTOBER 9-10, 2013






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 New York, NY, 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. THE SIGNER OF A SPINK BID SHEET OR PARTICIPANT IN THE AUCTION AGREES THAT EXCLUSIVE VENUE FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH RESPECT TO THESE TERMS OR IN CONNECTION WITH SPINK SHALL RESIDE INA STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN NEW YORK, NY. 24. On-line Bidding — SPINK offers internet services as a convenience to our clients, but SPINK will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids placed on the internet, including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by (i) a loss of connection on SPINK or your end; (ii) a breakdown or problems with the online bidding software and/or (iii) a breakdown or problems with a client's internet connection, computer or system.

Impressive U. S. Treasury Specimen Book

274 274

U.S. Treasury Specimen Vignette Book. Large oblong octavo, near quarto, 25cm by 18cm by 5cm. Rebound in red cloth with brown leather spine. The title page states “U.S. Treasury Department, Specimens. Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Washington. Geo. B. McCaree, Chief of Bureau - Geo. W. Casilear Supt of Eng’sVc.” are 100 intaglio die proof vignettes, interleaved with tissue guards, on thick gilt edged cards. There are 45 portraits, 7 famous buildings, and 48 vignettes on general subjects including historical titles. Several of these engravings appear on Federal currency, bonds, or Treasury forms. The first portrait in the book is of U. S. Grant; President at the time this book was created. From the terms of service of the Treasury officials listed on the title page, we may safely conclude the book was assembled in the mid 1870s. A partial list of the engravings includes Grant, Boutwell, Van Buren, Clay, Chase, Garrett, Taylor, Madison, Harrison, Silas Wright, Stanton, Lincoln, Wolcott, Jackson, Webster, Jefferson, Washington, McCulloch, Burlingame, Adams, Belknap, Cisco, Dix, Hamilton, Douglas, Benton, Mansfield, Baker, Andrew, Scott, Spinner, Farragut, The Capitol, The Treasury, Patent Office, Ships, Valley Forge, The Guardian, In The Turret, Columbus Discovery of Land, The Smokers, The Standard Bearer, The Pioneer, Victory, Return of Peace, Reconstruction, Caduceus, Loyalty, Mortar Firing, Farmer and Mechanic, Sound Steamboat, Launching Through the Surf, Mississippi Steamboat, Harvesting, Seeding and Ginning, New Ironsides. The interior die proof cards and tissue guards show light to moderate age toning, but most of the actual vignettes are quite atttractive. While the cover may not be impressive, the vignette selection is excellent, and just viewing this book will be a highly pleasurable experience. A great opportunity for anyone who collects bank note engravings. (photo)

Vignette of Moses holding the Ten Commandments. World War II’s most infamous camp currency, these notes were part of an elaborate sham by the Nazi propaganda machine to present a “model camp” in Theresienstadt for Red Cross inspection. They were designed in 1942 by Czech artist, poet and inmate Peter Kien, who later died at Auschwitz in 1944. Either Adolf Eichmann or Reinhard Heydrich, SS Reichprotecktor for Bohemia and Moravia objected to the design claiming the depiction of Moses looked “Aryan”. The design was sent back with orders for Kien to give Moses more stereotyped Semitic features. He modified Moses and the final design was engraved by Jindra Schmidt, a noted engraver of Czech banknotes, postage stamps and fiscal paper. [For other Ghetto currency, see lots 402 and 403].

Railroad Shares Issued to and Signed by James J. Hill

420 420

Mason City and Fort Dodge R R (IA) 1887. $100 Capital stock. No.A7. 2338 shares. Issued Dec. 20, 1887 to, and signed by James J. Hill on verso. Green ornate border. Locomotive. Stub lightly pasted to a small portion of the left border. IC. POC, minor rust stains in the right margin, otherwise VF+. This railroad was built in order to connection with the Chicago Great Western Railway Company’s tracks at Hayfield, Minnisota, southwesterly through the cities of Mason City and Fort Dodge, Iowa, to Omaha, Nebr., and Sioux City, Iowa, with a line extending westerly from Oelwein, Iowa, to Clarion, Iowa, and branches from Fort Dodge to Lehigh, Iowa, and elsewhere as determined. It was later acquired from the Chicago Great Western Railway Company, and rehabilitated. Between 1883 and 1889, James J. Hill built railroads across Minnesota, into Wisconsin, and across North Dakota to Montana. He brought industry into undeveloped areas, often by buying out companies and placing plants along his railroad lines. By 1889, Hill decided to focus on building a Transcontinental railroad, without the use of government funds. “What we want,” Hill is quoted as saying, “is the best possible line, shortest distance, lowest grades, and least curvature we can build. Eventually Hill got what he wanted. In January of 1893 his Great Northern Railway extended from St. Paul, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington - a distance of more than 1,700 miles. Stock certificates of any kind with Hill’s signature are extremely rare. In our May 2013, Lot 701, the Webster County Coal and Land Company, issued to and signed by Hill, realized $4,750. The current example should be much more compelling, as it is a railroad, is graphically pleasing, represents a high number of shares (that probably gave control of the company to Hill), and it is in nice condition. No scripophily collection of important autographed pieces will ever be complete without this example. (photo) Est. 5000-7500

VERPLANCK ARCHIVE ITEMS SHED LIGHT ON EARLY US FINANCIAL HISTORY In 1792, a group of brokers met under a Buttonwood tree in front of 68 Wall Street in New York City. The document they signed, transcribed below, is known as "The Buttonwood Agreement." Many historians consider it to be the predecessor of the New York Stock Exchange. The Buttonwood Agreement "We the Subscribers, Brokers for the Purchase and Sale of the Public Stock, do hereby solemnly promise and pledge ourselves to each other, that we will not buy or sell from this day for any person whatsoever, any kind of Public Stock, at least than one quarter of one percent Commission on the Specie value and that we will give preference to each other in our Negotiations. In Testimony whereof we have set our hands this 17th day of May at New York, 1792." -

But just what were those brokers trading? The answer to that question is answered, in part by examining the lots that follow. These items were discovered in a small envelope; part of the David Crommelin Verplanck papers recently consigned to us. They are a virtual time capsule, giving us some insight into what went on under that legendary tree. From the Verplanck documents that appear in the autograph section of this sale it is clear that he had many real estate and financial interests in New York City and elsewhere. Verplanck's residence was very convenient to the Buttonwood Tree and the coffee houses where most New York financial transactions took place in the late 1780s and early 1790s, so it is no surprise that financial documents relating to his trading activities were also discovered.

They lived on Wall Street until 1803, and then moved to Fishkill-on-Hudson, New York. He represented Dutchess County in Congress from 1803 until 1809. Note that there is no corporate seal or date of incorporation on this certificate, as no corporations existed under New York law at this time. In the two years following the issuance of this example the New-York Manufacturing Society would be at the very heart of a great political controversy surrounding the granting of corporate charters by states. It is entirely possible that the Society was created by Alexander Hamilton as a test case for that issue. (continued on next page)

One reason that no corporations existed in New York in 1789 had to do with the fact that some Americans felt that the Revolution was fought to throw off the yoke of the British corporations that desired to rule the Colonies for profit. Alexander Hamilton took a different view. He felt strongly that the predominantly agrarian US economy needed to be industrialized. Hamilton argued that the granting of corporate charters was necessary in order to create an atmosphere that would entice investors. He recognized that any firm seeking a corporate charter needed go to the state legislature and prove the company might serve the public good by constructing roads, bridges, and canals, or creating some other public-works projects. Hamilton convinced the politicians that the purpose of the NewYork Manufacturing Society was to provide jobs for the indigent, thus serving the public good. That, plus some political maneuvering, accomplished his goal, and a corporate charter was granted in 1791. Much of the significance of this share certificate revolves around the fact that in 1791 there were exactly two state chartered New York business corporations - the New-York Manufacturing Society, and the Bank of New York, thus the Society was the very first manufacturing entity to receive a New York State corporate charter. Just what was the New-York Manufacturing Society? The New-York Manufacturing Society was organized on January 7, 1789, only two months before this certificate was issued. The directors resolved to raise a fund by subscription for the establishment of a woolen factory. Shares were to be ÂŁ10 each. An article in The Daily Advertiser reported on March 17 that "the amount of the shares already subscribed is Two Thousand One Hundred Pounds." Alexander Hamilton was one of the supporters of the venture. The Society built a large brick factory on Vesey Street in New York's West Ward, and produced cotton textiles using "Spinning Jennies." The Society hired an Englishman, Samuel Slater, to help them improve their operations. Slater found their equipment "not worth using" and also found the water power sources in the area inadequate; He moved to Rhode Island Island to work with Almy & Brown, where he established the first successful water powered textile mill in America. While the Society failed to yield sufficient profits to its shareholders to remain viable for long, it blazed the way for other manufacturing enterprises to obtain corporate charters. Museum quality, and perhaps the most significant early American manufacturing certificate. We know of only one other example in public hands. (photo) Est. 2000-3000

Bernard Hart (1764-1855): There were five Jews among the signers of the Buttonwood Agreement - Benjamin Seixas, Ephraim Hart, Bernard Hart, Isaac M. Gomez, and Alexander Zuntz, a Hessian soldier who had worked for the British during the American Revolution. (continued on next page)

Bernard Hart came to New York from Bavaria in 1780. He became a successful businessman, an active member of the Jewish Synagogue, a member of the Black Friar's Society, the House of Lords, and the St. George's Society. Hart was a partner in the firm of Lispenard & Hart. He married Zipporah Seixas, the daughter of one of the other Jewish signers of the Buttonwood Agreement, Benjamin Seixas. Bank of United States “Scrips” (Subscriptions) In December 1790 Alexander Hamilton asked Congress to incorporate a Bank of the United States. One quarter of the subscription price was to be paid in gold or silver coins, bullion, or plate. The remainder was to be payable in U.S. debt securities obtained by trading old debt for new debt. In early 1791, both houses of Congress passed the Bank bill. After a great deal of debate on the constitutionality of the bill, George Washington signed it in late February. The intial public offering for Bank of the US “scrips” took place on July 4, 1791. Investors paid $25 in specie (gold, silver) per scrip. A $100 was due on January 1, 1792. Another $100 payment was then due on July 1, 1792. A payment of $100 was due on January 1, 1793, and a final payment of $75 was due on July 1, 1793. The total price per share was $400. The scrips were soon the target of intense speculation. They went from $25 to $50 in the first few weeks. The scrips rose from $50 to over $300 each, then the bubble burst and they declined back down to the $120-$130 range. At this point, Verplank optained an obtion from Bernard Hart. On December 9th, 1791 Bernard Hart promised to purchase from Daniel C. Verplank thirty-five Bank of the United States subscriptions at $135 each, if received on December 26th, 1791. If Verplanck obtained his scrips through the initial public offering he stood to gain $110 per scrip by excercising his option. The fact that this document remained among Verplanck's business papers indicates Verplanck did not execrcise the option. The reason is almost certainly due to the fact that Bank of the US scrip prices rose throughout December of 1791. This superb example of a stock transaction between a wealthy New York real estate investor, and one of the signers of the Buttonwood Agreement, will be a prize piece for any advanced collector of early American financial history.

Extraordinary Bank of New York “RECEIVABLE”

462 462

Bank of New York. Partially printed form. Dec. 16, 1791. No.22. 20mm x 13mm. “RECEIVABLE” for 5 Shares. $39.75 per share. “BANK STOCK” engraved at the top. Signed by George Sutton. “RECEIVABLE” forms the left end panel. Very Fine, with a few petty pin holes and a minor ink erosion hole. The text reads: “On the 1st day of February 1792 I promise to receive from Mr. Danl. C. Verplanck or order five Complete Shares of the New York Bank Stock and to pay them or the order for the same at the rate of Thirty Nine & 3/4 advance.”This transaction is similar to those described in the previous two lots. It is interesting to note that it is referred to on the form as a “RECEIVABLE.” Since this is a pre-printed form, transactions of like this one must have occurred on a fairly regular basis, but this is the only partially printed form of this type we have ever had the privilege to offer at auction. It is the only one we found in the Verplanck archive. The Bank of New York. The third oldest bank in the United States was founded on June 9, 1784. Alexander Hamilton was the driving force behind the Bank, organizing it and writing its constitution. The bank opened for business at the Walton House in lower Manhattan only a few months after the departure of British troops from American soil. Like the New-York Manufacturing Society, the Bank would not receive a corporate charter from New York State until 1791. In 1791, the Bank of the United States was not entirely ready for business. When Alexander Hamilton, as Secretary of the Treasury, needed help responding to a financial crisis caused by large scale speculation, he turned to the Bank of New York. In December of 1791 when this “RECEIVABLE” was issued, William Duer was secretly at work mobilizing a group of New York speculators in an attempt to manipulate the New York stock market. He made massive purchases of government paper and bank stocks, driving prices up and creating a bubble that was bound to burst. The rapid rise in stock prices was probably the reason Verplanck failed to exercise this receivable option, which would explain why the document remained in his business papers until now. This rare, and possibly unique example was issued at a time when the United States was experiencing its first taste of turmoil in the financial markets. The actions that Alexander Hamilton took to deal with the financial market disruptions known as the Crisis of 1791 and the Panic of 1792 were not all that different from those employed to prevent modern market meltdowns. Clearly, no collection of early American financial history will be complete without it. (photo) Est. 3000-5000

Receipt for the First Moiety of One Share

463 463

Bank of New-York. August 27, 1789. $250. 20cm x 8cm. Partially printed receipt for “….the first Moiety of One Share subscribed to the said Bank.” Issued to Daniel Crommelin Verplanck. Signed by William Seton, Cashier. Extremely Fine. Bold embossing and premium paper quality. William Seton (1746-1798) came to America from Scotland. He was a New York City importer with the firm of William Seton & Co. Seton was admitted to the New York Chamber of Commerce at the age of 23. He was the vice-president of the St. George’s Society of New York, Cashier of the Bank of New York, and also a Director. It was Seton who corresponded with Hamilton during the Crisis of 1791 and the Panic of 1792. The Bank of New York was founded by Alexander Hamilton in April of 1784, just months after British forces sailed away from New York City, and only four months before this receipt was issued. Like the New-York Manufacturing Society, it started out as a joint stock company and did not receive a corporate charter until 1791. The Bank was immediately profitable, perhaps because if had no major competitors in New York. An early, attractive, and high grade piece of financial history relating to an historic and important institution. (photo) Est. 1000-1500

Octavo, contemporary full tan calf, red morocco spine. Sixth edition, published in the same year as the first edition, of Sir Henry Clinton’s justification of his actions in the American campaign, bound together with a first edition of Cornwallis’ response, and a first edition of Clinton’s rejoinder, with folding chart illustrating the respective strengths of the military forces deployed in North America. Clear guard over covers bound down on inside board. Rear joint starting, trivial pencil notations endpapers, otherwise the contemporary binding is in excellent condition, and the contents clean and bright. Very Good. Sir Henry Clinton arrived in Boston in 1775 along with Major Generals William Howe and John Burgoyne to strengthen General Gage’s position. In 1778, Clinton succeeded to the supreme command of British forces in North America after General Howe’s resignation. After the fall of Charleston, which Clinton had under siege, he returned to New York leaving his second-in-command Lord Cornwallis in charge of the subsequent operations that led to the capitulation in Yorktown and the peace treaty which recognized American independence. Clinton returned to England in 1782 to find himself blamed for the defeat at Yorktown and Cornwallis conversely viewed with sympathy. With this “Narrative,” Clinton defends his actions in the war and lays the blame at Cornwallis’ feet. An indignant Cornwallis, in turn, defends himself with an Answer to the Narrative, which is then rebutted and replied to by Clinton in Observations on Some Parts of the Answer - both included here.

SECOND SESSION Wednesday, October 10, 2013 - 1:00 p.m. Lots 591-1099 Spink Smythe, New York

US COINS Anthony Lanzarone Collection Except for the coins he purchased directly from the Mint, Anthony Lanzarone obtained most of these examples “the old fashioned way;” he collected them from circulation, got them from friends, traded for them with other collectors. Starting in the 1950s, every payday Anthony would asked his friends and fellow workers at Republic Aviation (the Long Island aircraft manufacturer) if he could see the coins they received in their pay envelopes. In a sense, he was a visionary, collecting silver dollars at a time when no one else seemed to care very much about them. True, this is not a “Registry” collection of coins, but it is interesting because it reflects what was in circulation in the decades following WW II, and shows what could be acquired if you had the passion to pursue the hobby, even if your funds were limited. 591

1787 New Jersey Copper. Maris 39-a (R-2). Large Planchet, Plain Shield. Fine or thereabouts from the standpoint of wear. This generally medium brown specimen displays areas of mild to moderate porosity, as well as a bend in the planchet affecting the left obverse and corresponding location on the reverse. Est. 100-150

1787 New Jersey Copper. Maris 46-e (R-1). Large Planchet, Plain Shield. PCGS XF Details, Environmental Damage. Balanced shades of medium brown patina bathe the surfaces on either side. Hints of microgranularity are present, as are a small verdigris stain in the right obverse field, as well as some light evidence of corrosion at the upper right reverse rim; thus the details grade by PCGS. The overall presentation nonetheless is quite appealing , and it would not be a simple task to duplicate the quality of this specimen.

1787 New Jersey Copper. Maris 48-g (R-1). Pronounced Outline to Shield. PCGS VF35. Smooth, hard surfaces reveal some natural laminations that are visible only under magnification.

Pleasing Washington Small Eagle Cent



1787 New Jersey Copper. Maris 54-k (R-3). Serpent Head. PCGS XF45. There is a shade of even pale brown patina over design features that are quite evenly struck for such a coin. This popular and quite uncommon obverse head style is an integral part of any specialized New Jersey Copper collection.

Another Handsome Small Eagle Cent




1791 Washington Large Eagle Cent. Breen-1206. PCGS AU58. Wonderfully smooth surfaces and a meticulous strike are further embellished by rich chestnut-brown patina. The fields, moreover, still exhibit quite a bit of underlying muted satiny lutstre. Though somewhat more common in the upper grades, this elusive issue is significantly scarcer in terms of overall population than its Small Eagle counterpart offered above.

1791 Washington Small Eagle Cent. Breen-1218. PCGS MS 63 BN. Seeking to win a contract from the young U.S. government to produce copper coinage, the firm of W. and Alexander Walker of Birmingham, England commissioned John Gregory Hancock to design a Cent. His efforts resulted in what we now call large and small eagle Washington Cents. George Washington rejected the idea of having his portrait on a coin and loathed the notion of contract minting. A cask of these coins, though, had been shipped to the firm’s associate in Philadelphia and it is believed 4,000 pieces entered circulation, of which 1,500 were small eagles. (photo) Est. 2000-3000

1895-O Barber Dime. PCGS AU Details, Environmental damage. Consigned to us amidst a random grouping of lesser coins from an old collection, this wholly original specimen was submitted only once for third party grading and certainly warrants serious consideration by all interested buyers. Though the color is a rather deep lavender-grey, we are not at all convinced that this entirely honest coin does not deserve an unqualified numerical grade, and thus is an excellent candidate for resubmission. A degree of underlying mint frost complemented by plenty of detail distinguishes this specimen from the overwhelming majority of the surviving population of this very scarce date.

Wonderful High Relief 1907 Saint Gaudens


734 734

MCMVII (1907) $20 Saint Gaudens.High Relief, Wire Edge. PCGS MS64. There is a warm, velvet-like glow beneath an ever so subtle blush of wholly original orange-golden toning. The fields are generally quite smooth, and the limited number of small marks and imperfections that this lovely coin does possess are nearly all confined to inconspicuous locations along the rim. Considered to be one of the most beautiful coins ever to be struck by the U.S. Mint, This magnificent High Relief design has long been a favorite amongst collectors. Moreover, the scarcity and importance of this low mintage (only 12,367 pieces were struck) one year type coin forever solidifies its level of demand. Though certainly not the rarest American coin within its price range, the Saint Gaudens Roman Numeral High Relief Double Eagle is clearly one of the most popular. Having been struck largely as a result of President Teddy Roosevelt’s desire to beautify the American coinage of his day, this issue was a harbinger of things to come regarding our coinage designs. In fact, the so-called Renaissance of American Coinage initiated by gorgeous designs such as this may not have realized the success that it did had there not been a circulation strike High Relief Double Eagle. Alas, the difficulty in producing such a design, as well as its inherent impracticality in day to day commerce (they just would not stack properly for bank tellers and other money handlers) doomed both this issue as well as the beautiful and even rarer 1907 Wire Edge $10.00 Indian Head gold pieces.

Exceptional Gem 1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific Octagonal

751 751

1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific Exposition. Octagonal. PCGS MS65. Upon even a cursory initial examination of the magnificent coin offered here, it becomes quite clear that one is viewing an item that is very special within the context of what is typically encountered for an example of this issue. Moreover, as one gazes more thoroughly upon its surfaces and luster, an even deeper appreciation for the quality of this jewel quickly becomes evident. Its originality and wholly unencumbered appearance easily sets it apart from the overwhelming majority of the survivors of this important commemorative $50 gold issue. The strike is quite bold throughout every area of the design, and the luster is remarkably well preserved; there being a warm, incredibly unbroken velvet-like mint bloom on either side. Trivial hints of peripheral obverse staining attest to the complete “virgin” nature of this beauty, and unlike almost every one of its brothers, the surfaces retain all of their original “skin” on both the obverse and reverse. If that is not enough to entice all potential bidders, only the most trivial of marks and minor imperfections are detectable, even upon very close scrutiny with a glass. In fact, those who hope to obtain a finer example in a PCGS holder may never have the chance to do so within their lifetime, as PCGS has graded only a single specimen higher than this piece (that being an MS66 last sold publicly in January 2005). Those who demand only the finest in U.S. commemorative coinage must not take this opportunity lightly, as this marvelous coin deservedly warrants very special consideration! Of the 1500 pieces originally struck at the San Francisco Mint for sale at the Exposition (the asking price of which was $100.00), only 645 pieces were sold. The remainder were melted along with the unsold round $50 gold pieces that proved to be even less popular at the time. Produced during what many numismatists consider to be the height of the so-called “Renaissance” of American coinage, the Panama-Pacific Exposition $50 gold pieces have rightfully earned the distinction of being among the most coveted coins ever to be struck by The U.S. Mint. Possessing the “total numismatic package”, this glorious issue both in its round and octagonal varieties enjoys the utmost in aesthetic beauty, historicity, and rarity. The example offered here, furthermore, is of a quality level that is quite distinctive in light of the large size and fragile nature of Robert Aitken's open and exposed design. In what most consider to be Aitken's numismatic masterpiece, the artist has effectively communicated what may very well be a dual message. One such message is clear within the context of the Exposition itself, and another of which is quite fitting in light of the turbulent times during which this noteworthy issue was coined. Within the context of the Exposition, Aitken sought to represent the theme of the products of wisdom and industry as they relate to the construction of the Panama Canal. An additional context, however, can also be inferred. In the days prior to the entrance of the U.S. into the European “War to End All Wars”, Aitken manages to convey a strong yet sober vision of American power and resolve. By employing design elements that harken back to the Greek Empire and its cultural and intellectual heart of Athens, Aitken likens the U.S. to those traits that made the Greeks the powerful yet thoughtful visionaries of their day. Using both obverse and reverse motifs similar to the oft-seen Athenian tetradrachms, Aitken communicates volumes without ever uttering a word. His depiction of Liberty as the helmeted goddess Athena (patron goddess of ancient Athens) conveys elements of strength, justice, and resolve. Athena's companion, the wise owl, is an expression of America's thoughtful observation of the growing war in Europe and a foreshadowing of its eventual intervention into a war of which it had no desire to impulsively get involved. A portion of Athena's shield bearing the date 1915 in Roman numerals is visible on the obverse, and indicates the ability of the U.S. to defend itself if need be regardless of any possible American intervention. A total of sixteen dolphins embellish the peripheries of this octagonal design. Dolphins were another motif regularly encountered on Greek coins (those of Syracuse, Argos, and Calabria to name a few) and often symbolized a messenger. The relationship between the Panama Canal, dolphins, and an improved water route is clear, however Aitken's symbolic means of conveying a message to the world in light of the political turmoil of the time also seems quite evident. Indeed, Robert Aitken, the consummate artist, medalist, and sculptor that he was clearly mastered his craft, and brought both inspiration and understanding to all those that thoughtfully examined his work.

Medals & Tokens

783 783


Great Central Fair Medallet. Philadelphia, June 1861. Baker-363B, Gilt Copper. Listed by RulauFuld as Rarity-8 (5-9 known). Choice Extremely Fine or better. The underlying copper is visible at the rims and highpoints of the legends and design elements, otherwise the gilt surface is largely intact. A rare variant of this recognizable design. Est. 100-125


Civil War U.S. Veterans Medal. Brass and holed for suspension at 12:00. This unissued medal was designed to be engraved with the battles in which the awarded veteran had participated. The obverse periphery reads FOUGHT IN BATTLES.*1861, 2 & 3. UNITED STATES*. The center displays horizontal lines whereupon the names of pertinent battles would be placed. The reverse is completely blank, and in all likelihood was meant to bear the name, rank, and outfit in which the soldier had served. Undoubtedly quite scarce. Est. 100-150


1864 Philadelphia Sanitary Fair Medal. Julian CM44, Bronze. The obverse, designed by well known artist and sculptor Anthony Pacquet depicts the full figure of a draped woman handing a chalice to a military doctor. The doctor is in turn tending to a reclining wounded soldier. The peripheral legend reads WE GIVE OUR WEALTH FOR THOSE WHO GIVE THEIR HEALTH FOR US. According to Julian, only 901 one bronze and 4 silver medals of this design were produced in the summer of 1864,and as stated on the reverse of the medal itself were struck IN COMMEMORATION OF THE CENTRAL FAIR FOR THE U.S. SANITARY COMMISSION HELD AT PHILADELPHIA JUNE 1864. This fair was the largest of its kind held at the time, and was a means by which to raise money for the care of wounded Union soldiers during the Civil War. The medal bears a proof finish beneath chocolate-brown patina. There is a shallow scrape on the reverse rim at 2:45 as well as a few scattered minor stains, otherwise this medal is essentially as struck. Est. 300-500

Siemsen, a German merchant, operated stores in the Færøe Islands and Reykjavik, Iceland; and these tokens were used at both locations. Since few Danish or other Scandinavian coins found their way to the Færøes or Iceland, merchants were forced to issue their own private money. Token issues began in the mid-19th Century. In Iceland, some issuers, though, posted inflated prices alongside legal circulating coins. The backlash resulted in the 1901 ban on the production and usage of tokens in Iceland. Very scarce.

An Offering of Architectural, Award and Military Medals and Documents from the Arnaud Family A prominent name in architecture, Leopold F. Arnaud (1895-1984) was a member of Columbia University’s School of Architecture for 31 years, and dean from 1937 to 1960. He founded Columbia’s School of Painting and Sculpture and its School of Dramatic Arts. Arnaud served as an officer in a battery of field artillery in the Rainbow Division during World War I and was wounded in action. Leopold’s father Leopoldo Arnaud was prominent in South America and Spain as a traveler, scientist, author and diplomat. In the U.S., Arnaud Senior represented Argentina at the Chicago World’s Fair as a scientific delegate, served as Consul of Peru in Chicago and was Secretary of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in New York. He married Fortunée Zacharie on March 17, 1894.

Important 1884 Chaco Expedition Medal

990 990

Argentina. Medal for the Chaco Campaign, 1870-1884. With Bar for the 'Expedicion 1884'. Gold (10-12k?). 31 mm. Argentine Arms; CAMPA—A DEL CHACO around, rev. LA NACION ARGENTINA in three lines within wreath. On blue-white-blue moiré ribbon with fancy scrollwork top pin-bar. This handsome medal was awarded to Leopoldo Arnaud, head of the main scientific team in the 1884 Chaco Expedition. Lying in the northeastern part of Argentina, the Chaco region is part of the Gran Chaco in the Rio de la Plata basin, a massive, semi-arid expanse of near impenetrable forests straddling southeast Bolivia, northern Argentina, northern Paraguay and parts of the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso and Matto Grosso do Sul. Early on, the Conquistadores attempted to penetrate its unwelcoming wilderness, but the vegetation, fierce indigenous tribes and lack of water turned them back. Becoming lost in the forest while hunting soon after entering the Chaco, Arnaud wrote: "the Indians, the beasts, the deadly reptiles, that was the picture I was facing. Nobody can fully understand “the sensation you go through when stepping onto a totally virgin terrain, on a land on which there is not even the slightest trace of civilized man." Though isolated and uninviting, the Gran Chaco became a disputed territory from 1810 onward -- culminating in the bloody Chaco War of 1932-1935 between Bolivian and Paraguay. Propelled by Buenos Aires desire to "advance civilization and progress," Argentina mounted a number of expeditions from 1870 to 1884 to pacify the indigenous population. In October, 1884, it mounted the largest military campaign ever conducted in the Chaco. Under the command of General Benjamín Victorica, the campaign utilized several cavalry regiments; the indigenous resistance proved no match for the Argentine Remingtons. Teams of scientists, technicians, and engineers accompanied the army with a mandate to survey and map the area, and gather data on its geography, flora, fauna and peoples. Leading the scientific team was Leopoldo Arnaud, who afterwards published in 1889 "Del Timbó al Tartagal: Impresiones de un viaje á través del Gran Chaco". Thin edge split as made. Toned Choice Extremely Fine and Very Rare. (photo)

The Verplancks For over two hundred years, the Verplanck name was renowned in New York and the Hudson Valley region – in commerce, banking and land. The eponymous patriarch of the line, Abraham Isaacse (Isaac) Verplanck, a Dutch entrepreneur, arrived in the New Netherlands in the 1630s. He had left Holland for the New World to purchase land in order to establish a settlement and trading post to capitalize on Europe’s yearning for American furs, tobacco and other rare goods. He landed in New Amsterdam, a thriving port, frontier and melting pot, but initially settled in what is now Hudson County, New Jersey. Verplanck, though, would move to New Amsterdam, settling in with his wife Maria Vigne Roos and building a house near Pearl Street and Maiden Lane. The couple had a brood of children – Abigail, Gulian (Gelyn, the old Dutch version of William), Catalyna, Isaak, Sussanna, Jacomyntje, Ariaentje, Hillegond and another Isaak. The second Isaak would move to Albany and establish a Verplanck line there which still exists today. In 1664, Charles II of England ceded his brother James a large tract of land which included New Netherlands. That summer, four British naval ships arrived to seize the Dutch colony, sending a message to Director-General Peter Stuyvesant to surrender. Knowing that a fight would destroy New Amsterdam and all that they had built, the people of the port petitioned Stuyvesant to hand it over to the British; Abraham Verplanck was one signatories of the petition. Stuyvesant did, the Dutch swore loyalty to England, and the city was renamed New York. The Verplancks would prosper, and prosper greatly during New York’s colonial period. In 1680, Gulian looking to enlarge his wealth, headed north to acquire land. The Verplanck inroads into the Hudson Valley began in 1683 when Gulian with partners Francis Rombout and Stephanus Van Cortlandt purchased 85,000 acres of land in Dutchess County from the Wappinger Indians. Over the years, the Verplancks would add land in Ulster, Delaware, Greene Counties and beyond. The name, Gulian, meanwhile, along with Samuel, would be bestowed upon several successive generations of Verplancks – which today leaves us with a somewhat bewildering array of like-named scions of this illustrious name. A civic-minded family, the Verplancks helped develop New York’s business and banking industries and served as Trustees at Kings (later known as Columbia) College. Increasing their lustre, they married into New York’s other prominent families – the Schuylers, DeLanceys, Johnsons, Crommelins and Bleeckers. The legacy they have left behind forms a tapestry of the history of New York and the Hudson Valley.

Jacobus Isaacse Verplanck (1671-1699)

Gulian Verplanck (1698-1751)

Jacobus was the son of Gulian (Guleyn) Verplanck and the grandson of Abraham Isaacse Verplanck, patriarch and founder of the NY Verplancks. In 1691, he married Margarita Schuyler of Albany. For Jacobus, a NY city merchant, the marriage opened up trade to Albany. But before the couple could be firmly established in Albany, Jacobus died, leaving Margarita with two young sons, Gulian and Phillip. In 1701, Margarita Schuyler Verplanck married John Collins, an officer in the Albany garrison.

A successful and prominent New York businessman, Gulian married Mary Crommelin in 1737. His wife came from a very prosperous family and the match cemented Gulian’s fortune. The couple had six children. Gulian’s paternal grandfather for whom he was named, Gulian Verplanck, along with partners Francis Rombout and Stephanus Van Cortlandt had bought 85,000 acres of land from the Wappinger Indians, encompassing about 1/7th of Dutchess County in New York (the Rombout Patent). On that land, the grandson Gulian built Mount Gulian sometime around 1740, which would become the Verplanck country home and for some in later generations a full-time residence. Verplanck Avenue in the city of Beacon, NY (home to Mount Gulian) is named for the family.

In 1682, a Flandersborn Huguenot merchant from New York, Francis Rombout and Gulian Verplanck (1637-1684; son of Abraham Isaac Verplanck) jointly filed petitions for a land grant and permission to buy a fertile tract of land from the Wappinger Indians on the east bank of the Hudson, extending from Fishkill almost to Poughkeepsie. It is said that Rombout bargained for “all the land he could see”, then craftily climbed to the top of Mount Beacon to increase his view. In 1683, Rombout, Verplanck and partner Stephanus Van Cortlandt bought some 85,000 acres for roughly $1,200 in goods. The purchase was licensed by Provincial Governor Dongan, and the grant confirmed in 1685 after the accession of James II. It came to be known as the Rombout Patent. In 1703, Rombout’s daughter, Catheryna married a young British naval lieutenant, Roger Brett, who had accompanied his friend, the eccentric Lord Cornbury when he was sent to govern New York. In 1708, the Bretts settled on the Rombout Patent in Lot Number one. Catheryna showed herself to be a resourceful and indomitable pioneer in developing the land left to her by her father. Her homestead, the “Madame Brett House”, still stands, a historic landmark, at the intersection of Teller and Van Nydeck Avenues in the City of Beacon. [2] Est. 200-300

A pair of Indentures between “Robert Livingston of the City of New York Merchant and Gulian Verplanck Merchant”, for the release of certain lots and parcels of land, being part of the Hardenbergh patent (of 1708) {these lots may now be in Delaware County, NY}. 1) One and one half pages, 28 3/4 x 22 3/4” (to bottom fold), on vellum, Dec. 12, 1749.

The Hardenbergh Patent encompassed approximately 2 million acres of land situated in the New York counties of Ulster, Greene, Orange, Sullivan and Delaware. It was purchased - a term in retrospect used quite loosely —by Johannes Hardenbergh a merchant in Esopus, on March 22, 1707 from Nanisinos, the sachem of the Esopus Indians for the sum of 60 Pounds current money of New York. The transaction was confirmed in April 1708 by royal grant from Queen Anne. The Livingtons, a prominent New York family who had emigrated from Scotland via the Dutch Republic in the 17th Century, were very active in the Hudson Valley region, and the lands of the patent. Robert Livingston Sr. devoted his life to acquiring land and property, while the interest of his son, the signer of this document, in land was motivated by a desire to “found a family” (See: Evers, Alf “The Livingston Presence in the Great or Hardenbergh Patent”, The Hudson Valley Regional Review, March 1988, volume 5, No. 1) and to develop the land.

Samuel Verplanck (1739-1820) Son of Gulian Verplanck and Mary Crommelin Verplanck, Samuel was a member of the first class of King’s College (Columbia University), graduating in 1758. He went off to Amsterdam to learn the banking business from his uncle David Crommelin, and while there he married his Dutch cousin Judith. He returned to New York in 1763, took possession of the impressive townhouse his father had built at 3 Wall street (demolished in 1822 to make way for the Branch Bank of the United States), and soon became a business leader in the city. In 1768, he was one of the 24 founders of the New York Chamber of Commerce. An American patriot, Samuel became involved in antiBritish groups before the Revolution, joining the Committee of Safety of One-Hundred in Manhattan, which was set to take control of the city in the event of a rebellion. But while Samuel supported the American cause, his wife Judith didn’t. When the British took Manhattan in 1776, Samuel retired to the Verplanck lands at Mount Gulian in Fishkill. During the war, he turned Mount Gulian over to the Continental Army because of its strategic location near the Fishkill barracks and across the Hudson from Washington’s headquarters in Newburgh. (From late 1782 to the summer of 1783, it was the headquarters of General Von Steuben; who, along with other American officers, created the Society of Cincinnati there in May 13, 1783.) Samuel remained in Fishkill until his death in 1820. His estranged wife, Judith stayed at their Wall Street home and maintained a friendship with Sir William Howe, the Commander-in-Chief of the British forces.

Orange County, NY; Wawayanda Patent; Verplanck, Samuel (1739-1820). Pair of land documents. 1) Indenture between “William Wickham of the City of New York Attorney at Law, James Jauncey, Walter Franklin & Lawrence KortrightCity Merchants” and Samuel Verplanck for the release of “Lands in the Patent of Wawayanda in the County of Orange”. One page, 24 x 28”, on vellum, Dec. 2, 1772. Signed by the first four bottom right, a red wax seal by each signature. Notation on verso, that on Jan. 25, 1773, “George Duncan Ludlow Esquire one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of the Province of New York” and Robert Hull, one of the subscribing witnesses to the indenture came before George D. Ludlow, who finding no fault allowed the indenture to be recorded, signing so below. Orange County Records notation also on verso. William Wickham (1732-1814) was an attorney both in Goshen, NY and New York City. Lawrence Kortright (1728-1794) was one of the founders of the New York Chamber of Commerce. He married Hannah Aspinall in 1755; one of their daughters married President James Monroe. James Jauncey is possibly the NY General Assembly member and loyalist, while Walter Franklin is possibly the same Franklin who built what would be the Samuel Osgood House, which served as the first presidential mansion. A few minor holes near crease folds do not interfere with the text; 2) Indenture between “Samuel Verplanck of the City of New York merchant and Judith his Wife” and Isaac Noble, merchant for a parcel of land “in the Township of Goshen in the County of Orange, being a part of Lot Number One in a subdivision of the Wawayanda Patent.

In 1703, the Governor of New York & New Jersey, Edward Hyde, Lord Cornbury, cousin to Queen Anne, granted 150,000 acres of land in Orange County to one John Bridges and 11 associates. Known as the Wawayanda Patent, it was confirmed by Queen Anne. Characterized by historians as an arrogant “fop and wastrel”, moral profligate and cross-dresser, Lord Cornbury, who preferred to be called “high Mightiness”, was perhaps the worst governor appointed to the American colonies and certainly the most scandalous and curious. Not surprisingly, the patent encountered many lawsuits, and the land remained unoccupied until 1712. [2] Est. 400-600

Daniel Crommelin Verplanck (1762-1834) Son of Samuel and Judith Verplanck, Daniel spent his early life in the family home on lower Wall Street in New York City. While attending Columbia College (formerly King’s), Daniel married Elizabeth Johnson, daughter of Columbia’s president. Their son Gulian Crommelin Verplanck, born in 1786, would go on to become, in his day, one of the best known personalities in New York. After Elizabeth’s death in 1789, Daniel married Ann Walton with whom he had seven children. The couple lived on Wall Street until 1804 when they moved and permanently occupied Mount Gulian, the Verplanck country home in the town of Fishkill, Dutchess County, NY. Daniel represented Dutchess County in Congress from 1803 to 1809 and later served as Judge of Common Pleas for the county. After his death in 1834, he was interred in Trinity Church Cemetery in Fishkill. His image (as a child) is widely known even today thanks to the Sir John Singleton Copley painting of Daniel when he was nine years old, Boy with a Squirrel displayed in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Verplanck Archives: Vermont (Charlotte County, NY, and the Socialborough Patent) Created from Albany County, two months before the patents offered below as lots 1023 and 1024, Charlotte County – the furthest extending county of its time -- was named for Charlotte, the Princess Royal, George the Third’s eldest daughter. Its western boundary ran from the Mohawk River to the Canada line, its southern boundary was near present-day Saratoga Springs. Canada was its northern border, while much of western Vermont, then claimed by New York was also part of Charlotte County. In 1784, Charlotte was renamed Washington County in honor of George. The Socialborough Patent, issued the 3rd of April, 1771 by the Governor of New York, John Murray, the Fourth Earl of Dunmore, centered in Vermont and included Rutland, Pittsford and parts of Clarendon. Will Cockburn of Kingston, NY was sent to survey the grant but was driven off by threats from settlers who held New Hampshire titles to the lands (the British crown did not recognize New Hampshire’s claims). The patent, of course, came into conflict with Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys who firmly resisted New York’s authority in Vermont. 1022

KENNEDY ASSASSINATION ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE COPY NOVEMBER 22, 1963 By Gail Horky In November of 1963, I was a 22 year old female television news reporter-photographer for an Omaha television station. I had started as a news writer in 1961 while in college and became a fulltime news reporter-photographer when I graduated with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism in June, 1963. I was "Omaha's first 'woman' television newsman", as the newspapers dubbed me. On November 22, 1963, I was in a newsroom waiting for another reporter to return so I could go to lunch. And then began the tragic unfolding of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Associated Press Wire Copy Machine started ringing its bells wildly and continuously. It was a sound I had never in my two and half years in the newsroom. Usually, there were a few bells to call our attention to the occasional bulletin. But nothing like this loud continuous ringing.

Gail Horky Then

I raced to the machine to see the first bulletin that said the President had been shot. I grabbed an announcer and sent him to the announce booth with that first bulletin. In those early minutes, our network, ABC, had not yet aired its own bulletins nor started any coverage. I had been monitoring the NBC and CBS affiliates noon newscasts so the newsroom monitors were still on. The NBC and CBS networks began broadcasting bulletins fairly quickly, but still nothing from the ABC network. So I continued to pull bulletins and hand them off to our announcer until ABC began its coverage. After several minutes, the ABC anchor appeared on the network. He had obviously just walked into the studio and didn't seem to have much of a handle on what was occurring. It was catch-up time for ABC. The networks, of course, handled the coverage throughout the rest of the day while theOmaha television stations looked for local angles to the story. I remember the Midwest Governors' Conference was being held in Omaha and reporters were dispatched to get interviews with various governors. The nation was stunned! And so were we! I remember being so engrossed in everything that happened that day. Our ribbon on the Associated Press machine needed to be changed, but once the bulletins started pouring in, we couldn't risk changing the ribbon and miss an important bulletin. By late afternoon, bulletins had calmed down a bit and I quickly changed the ribbon -- so you will see the first half of the wire copy is light; then comes the new ribbon and much darker copy. Standard practice in our newsroom was to pull stories off the wire; then hang them on a hook above the machine. At the end of each day, the accumulated copy was dumped into a trash barrel. At the end of the day on November 22, 1963, one reporter grabbed the day's copy off the hook to toss it in the barrel. But I stopped him, telling him I would like to keep it. At that time, I collected historical newspapers and magazines and thought the wire copy would be an interesting addition to my collection. It never occurred to me that I would keep this wire copy for 50 years, moving it to various closets and garages as I moved through my life. And I certainly could never imagined in 1963 the historical significance it would hold 50 years later. This Associated Press Wire Copy begins the night before the assassination and covers approximately a 24-hour period. It includes bulletins that the President had been shot and all the events that happened that day. It also includes an "advance" of the speech Kennedy never delivered on November 22 in Dallas. It is in sections since the wire copy was torn off and hung on a hook as the bulletins came in. The longest section is more than 21 feet, which is a summary of the events of the day, including that the President was being given transfusions at 3:42 p.m. ES, a bulletin on the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald, the swearing in of Lyndon Johnson, and the plane landing in Washington, D.C. at 6:30 p.m. with the President's body. It ends in the early morning hours of November 23. While this does not include every bulletin and story that ran on Associated Press that day, it is an extensive collection of bulletins and events from that 24hour period in history. I also recall that at the end of that very long day on November 22, 1963, I headed to my favorite Omaha hangout expecting to see the bar empty. I had assumed that everyone else just stayed riveted to their TV sets while those of us in the news business had spent the day totally focused on this bistory-making event. But as one friend explained that night, everyone just needed to get away from the tragic news and be with friends.

Kennedy, John F., Jr. (1960-1999). “John John”— Son of President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy, American socialite and magazine publisher. Autograph Book Signed “John Kennedy Jr 1969” in black ink. An Ex-Libris St. Francis Xavier Library of Brooklyn copy of the The News’ “The Torch is Passed - Associated Press Story of The Death of A President”, with a typewritten copy of the famous “Special Delivery From Heaven” poem by Barbara Jones taped down to the back inside cover. Beneath is the inscription in black ink: “As the Sun may / Shine, I will Always / Remember you Dad / John Kennedy Jr / 1969”. The typewritten poem here differs slightly from the published version of the poem - ampersand and “I’ll” instead of “I look down and smile” Barbara Jones, a 15-year-old high school sophomore in Yonkers, NY, wrote the poem in honor of JFK soon after his assassination, it was picked up and reprinted in newspapers across the U.S. and reproduced as plaques and numerous other tributes. The signature, which would have been penned when John F. Kennedy, Jr. was nine, differs from other observed signatures, but all of those differ from each other, as JFK, Jr. frequently varied his signature. While the autograph cannot be verified, the formation of the capital letters “J” and “K” share similarities with some of his other signatures.

Unless industry is assured that delays caused by the acceptance of and compliance with preference rated contracts will not result in attempts by the Government to collect penalties, the procurement of materials necessary to the defense program may be unduly retarded.” Roosevelt instructs Cole to have his staff comply with this system, as have the Secretaries of War and Navy, and notes in ending that he has requested that the Attorney General and the Comptroller General “take appropriate steps to comply with this policy.” Otto S.

Civil War: Davis, Jefferson Finis. President of the Confederate States of America, Secretary of War under President Franklin Pierce, Democratic Senator from Mississippi; characterized by most historians as “stiffnecked, unbending, doctrinaire and over-bearing,” Davis proved a far less effective leader than his counterpart Abraham Lincoln; following the end of the Civil War, southerners growingly identified with Davis’ defiance, pride, ideals, refusal to accept defeat and his resistance to Reconstruction, and he became a hero in the eyes of the South. Original Virginia Electoral Ticket for Presidency of the CSA, 1861. On pale blue-gray pelure, 4 1/4 x 5”. Jefferson Davis for President, Alex. H. Stephens of Georgia for VicePresident, two nominees for the state at large and 16 for the districts. Signed on the back in browning ink, “S.S. Nottingham”. Following Mississippi’s succession on Jan. 9, 1861, Davis delivered a farewell address, on what he called “the saddest day of my life,” to the US Senate, resigned and returned to Mississippi. On Jan. 23, Governor John J. Pettus made Davis a majorgeneral of the Army of Mississippi. On Feb. 9, a constitutional convention at Montgomery, Alabama, considered Davis, Howell Cobb, Alexander Stephens and Robert Toombs for the office of provisional president of the Confederate States. Stephens was the choice of all present, but he was unwilling to agree to fire the first shot in the anticipated war. The delegates thus chose Davis who was elected without opposition to a six-year term beginning that November. Minor diagonal crease upper left and trivial edge wrinkle, Near Fine.

Writing to the Provost Marshal, Hooker says “The bearer of this is an old soldier & desires a pass to bring 1700 of his vols to the army” Appreciated for his no-nonsense, aggressive stance in the field and ability and astuteness in operations, Hooker was appointed Commander of the Potomac near the end of January 1863. At about the time this letter was written, Hooker had also gained much recognition as an excellent administrator, restoring the morale of the troops which had sunk after the Battle of Fredericksburg debacle and Major-Gen. Ambrose Burnside’s command and humiliating “Mud March”. Hooker fixed the daily diet of his troops; improved camp sanitation, the furlough system and the accountability of the quartermaster system; reformed the hospitals; and implemented better drills and better officer training.

Civil War — “Macon Daily Telegraph And Confederate,” Oct.21, 1864. 2 page, folio.

Civil War: Seward, William Henry. Secretary of State (1861-1869), Governor of New York (18391842), New York Senator, perhaps best known for his acquisition of Alaska from Russia for the U.S. in 1867 - mocked by the public as “”Seward’s Folly”. Autograph Letter Signed “William H. Seward”. One page, 7 3/4 x 9 3/4”, Department of State letterhead, Washington, D.C., May 4, 1864. Writing to George W. Curtis, Esq., Seward says “Assuming that the sad news of the death of Wm. Thayer is true, I have the permission of the President to tender to you the position of Consul General at Alexandria. Will you please advise me if you will accept it?” At top left, Seward has written “Confidential”. The sad news was true, William Sydney Thayer, U.S. Consul-General at Alexandria, Egypt had died. Although little known today, Thayer was highly regarded in the Civil War and pre-War eras. Curtis did not fill the position, as Charles Hale became US Consul-General at Alexandria that year.

Civil War: Snyder, George W..

Anderson’s command from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter. Autograph Book Signed. Snyder’s copy of “Elements of Chemistry” by Kane, NY 1854, which he used while at West Point, signed “G W Snyder U S M A” in ink on the front endpaper, and again “George W Snyder USMA” in pencil on the title page. After Fort Sumter’s surrender, Snyder served as an engineer in the 3rd Division of the Army of Northeastern Virginia, participating in the First Battle of Bull Run. He was brevetted Captain, and later Major for “gallant and meritorious service in the Manassas Campaign.” He died, while on duty in 1861 likely of typhoid fever — “While acting as First Lieutenant under Major Anderson, he was with the gallant company that held Fort Sumter against the misguided Carolinians, and it was through exposure and the use of unwholesome food and water, that he was attacked with a diarrhoae which became chronic, and closed his life upon the 17th of November, 1861” (`History of Schoharie County, 1713-1882’, Volume 2, by William E.

Second Marquess of Londonderry, Irish-British statesman, played a key role in crushing the Irish Rebellion in 1798, Member of the House of Commons for Down, lobbied and intrigued for the Act of Union with Ireland to be passed, promoted to Secretary of State for War and for the Colonies in 1804, served as William Pitts’ political deputy, later served as British Foreign Secretary (1812-1822); Pitt would be the principal British diplomat at the Congress of Vienna. Autograph Manuscript Letter Signed “Castlereagh” as Secretary for War and the Colonies. Two pages, 4 to, Downing Street [London] 10th of October 1805. Addressing the Commander-in-Chief [of the King’s German Legion, Prince Adolphus, the Duke of Cambridge], Castlereagh communicates King George the Third’s “Royal Pleasure that you do issue the necessary orders for the Hanoverian Legion, consisting of the Force in the Margin mentioned, to be marched to the neighbourhood of Dover in order to be embarked for foreign Service. Your Royal Highness will receive His Majesty’s Pleasure for appointing a Lieutenant General and a suitable staff for the said Corps.

The Hanoverian Legion - not to be confused with Napoleon’s troops of the same name - was the only German force that fought consistently against the French in the Napoleonic Wars. It was formed from officers of the Hanoverian army after the French occupied the principality in 1803, and usually broken up into smaller units that served separately through the final victory at Waterloo.

U.S. Senate, Middle East Affairs: AWACS Sale controversy. A fascinating group of 56 letters from U.S. Senators sent during 1981 regarding the sale of AWACS surveillance planes to Saudi Arabia. Printed letters signed and sent by a number of Senators including Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy, William Proxmire, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Dan Quayle, Bill Bradley, Orin Hatch, John Glenn, Charles H. Percy, Gary Hart and Alfonse D’Amato; many represented by more than one correspondence. Some with printed statements, copies of the Congressional or other supporting information. All in United States Senate Official Business envelopes. In 1981, the Reagan administration, which was only a few months old, proposed the sale of AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System) surveillance planes to Saudi Arabia. At the time, it represented the largest foreign arms sale in U.S. history. The formal introduction of the AWACS proposal to Congress by the White House in the fall of ‘81 met with a very cold reception from a number of senators. “This is one of the worst and most dangerous arms sales ever,” railed Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy. With the Iran hostage crisis fresh in their minds, the U.S. public was also very reluctant to sell arms to any foreign body. A poll in May, showed that 52% of Americans opposed the sale, while only 19% were in favor. Israel was also, not surprisingly, a vociferous opponent. But despite what appeared to be overwhelming objections, the Reagan administration lobbied strongly — touting the sale as an important component of bringing stability to the region, and ultimately Congress approved the sale. The letters are generally Very Fine and offer an excellent glimpse into the great AWACS controversy of the early Reagan era. [56] (photo) Est. 900-1200
