THE 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 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 NEW YORK, 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.

England. Kings of Mercia. Burgred (852-874). ‘Late Phase’ Penny. Moneyer: Dudwine. 1.31 gms. Diademed bust r., shoulders breaking circle, BVRGRED REX T, rev. Unbroken lunettes, MON / DYDPINE / ETA. N.423, S.938. Good Very Fine. Est. 400-600

Important and Extraordinarily Rare Interlace Transitional Penny of Beonna

Enlarged 2:1 1002

England. Kings of East Anglia. Beonna (749-760 or later). Silver ‘Interlace’ Sceat or Transitional Penny. 1.11 gms. BEONNA in runic letters around central pellet, rev. Interlaced quatrefoil with central pellet, and line of three pellets in each angle. N.430/1, S.945B. There are very few primary sources for Beonna and these consist of just bare-bone references to his reign penned by later chroniclers. His coins have largely provided scholars the only tangible evidence of Beonna as a historical figure. Most of the hundred-odd Beonna coins known are moneyer issues, citing Werferth, Efe or Wilred, and are proper Sceattas. The somewhat larger module of this type though and its slightly greater weight suggests that it should be more accurately deemed a Transitional Penny. Spink specialist Patrick Finn purchased this coin in 1988 as a single-find piece from the finder after Treasure Trove law examination by the British authorities.

Handsome Alfred the Great Portrait Penny

1003

England. Kings of East Anglia. Eadmund (855-869). Penny. Moneyer: Eadwald. 1.26 gms. Large barred ‘A’ within circle; +EA’DMVND REX around, rev. Cross pattée, pellet in each angle, within circle; +EADIIALD MON (retrograde) around. N.456, S.954. Although we know near nothing about Eadmund’s life and reign, the death of this last king of East Anglia is famous. When the Viking Great Army led by the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok invaded in 869, Eadmund was killed. Mayhaps he died in battle. But tradition holds that when Eadmund refused to renounce Christ, he was beaten, peppered with arrows, and then beheaded at the orders of Ivar the Boneless and his brother Ubba Ragnarsson. Eadmund became a martyr and a saint in an England blighted by the Viking hordes. His sainthood is celebrated in the later Memorial coinage which is based on this type. Bold strike toned an attractive, rich medium gray with hints of gold. A handsome example. Rare in such high-grade. NGC AU 58.

England. Kings of Wessex. Alfred the Great (871899). Portrait Penny. London mint, ca. 886. Moneyer: Tilewine. 1.45 gms. Diademed and draped bust r.; +AELFR-ED REX, rev. TILEVINE (the ‘NE’ ligate) / MONETA above and below Londonia monogram which is flanked by small cross pattées, cluster of six pellets at top and bottom. N.646, S.1062. The only English monarch to bear the sobriquet “Great,” Alfred had to contend with invading Danish armies for most of his reign. While many times it seemed that all of England would be engulfed, Alfred invariably rallied. In 878, he defeated the Great Danish Army now led by Guthrum at the Battle of Edington. Under the conditions of the subsequent Treaty of Wedmore, Guthrum had to convert to Christianity. Alfred had neutralized a major threat, but still had to contend with Viking raids. In 886, he recaptured London, an event likely celebrated by this coin. He strengthened the defenses of Wessex, forged ties with Mercia, and was acknowledged King of all England outside the Danelaw. While it would be his successors that would one day rule a single, unified English state, it was Alfred who laid the foundations for its creation. Well-detailed portrait and sharp types, toned a smoky slate-gray. A handsome example of this Very Rare Classic of English coinage. NGC MS 61.

Unique Hiberno-Norse Penny of Anlaf V(Amláib mac Sitriuc)

Enlarged 2:1 1010

Ireland. Hiberno-Norse Coinage. Anlaf V (ca. 1029-1034). ‘Cnut-style’ Penny. struck likely at Dublin, moneyer: Oda (?) Draped bust l. breaking circle, wearing pointed helmet and holding scepter; +∧NLF +CVIN-E (the ‘N’ retrograde), rev. Central double circle enclosing pellet, which intersects a voided and a jeweled cross within a circle; +OD∧:ON (the ‘N’ retrograde) DNLNVF. Anlaf V is apparently Olaf Sigtryggsson (Amláib mac Sitriuc), son of Sigtrygg Silkbeard. His wife is said to have been Sláine, daughter of Brian Boru, King of Munster and High King of Ireland. In 1029, he was taken prisoner by the Lord of Brega and ransomed for the lofty sum of over 1200 cows, 140 British horses, 60 ounces of gold and silver, the “Sword of Carlus” and various Irish hostages. According to the early 17th century “Annals of the Four Masters” (Annála na gCeithre Máistrí), Olaf (Anlaf) “was slain by Saxons on his way on a pilgrimage to Rome in 1034.” He was survived by a daughter, Ragnhild, mother of Gruffydd ap Cynan, progenitor of the Kings of Gwynedd in Wales. This coin is the only known example in Anlaf’s name and is one of the greatest rarities in Irish, Viking and Anglo-Saxon numismatics. Unlisted in North and Spink. Cf.Roth BNJ vol. 6 (1909), p.55.

England. Late Anglo-Saxon. Harold (1035-1040). Joint reign of Harold I and Harthacnut, with Harold I, as King in Mercia and the North. Jewel Cross Penny, struck Spring 1036-1038. Norwich, moneyer: Leofside. Diademed bust l.; +HAR-OLD REX, rev. Cross composed of four ovals set on two circles which enclose a pellet; +LEOFSIDE ON NOR. When Cnut died in 1035, his son Harthacnut by Queen Emma of Normandy was the legitimate heir to the Danish and English thrones. He could not, though, come to England to be crowned as his Danish lands were being threatened by King Magnus of Norway and King Anund Jakob of Sweden. Thus his half-brother, Harold, Cnut’s son by Aelfgifu of Nothampton was installed as a temprorary regent or joint ruler. Harold, essentially ruled Mercia and the north, while southern England was governed by Godwin, Earl of Wessex and Emma in Harthacnut’s name. Known as the “Harefoot” for his speed and prowess as a hunter, Harold steadily took control of most of England at the expense of Emma and her son. Harthacnut prepared a Danish invasion force, but was spared the necessity when Harold died in 1040. Harthacnut had his body exhumed, beheaded and tossed into a fen near the Thames. Rare.

Cross pattée, pellets in angles, within quatrefoil; +DI-E ON CICEST. Third son of the Conqueror, William II was known as “Rufus” for his florid complexion. An effective but ruthless soldierking of “astonishing” physical strength, William was well favored by his troops and supported by his barons. But he reaped only ire and scorn from contemporary historians, nearly all ecclesiastics, for the tax burden he placed on the church and the conduct of his personal affairs. The ‘Anglo-Saxon Chronicles’ say of him, William “was hated by almost all his people and abhorrent to God”. He was killed in a rather dubious hunting accident by an arrow shot by one of his men, Walter Tirel. His nobles left William’s body where he fell, while his younger brother Henry made haste to Winchester to secure the royal treasury, then hied himself to London where he was crowned within days. Rare. Toned over faint obverse deposit, minor weakness of strike reverse periphery. Very Fine. Est. 1500-2000

Kalima within central circle, `Imadi within compartment above, flanked by branches, mint San`a and date in large lozenge below. Yahya became Imam upon his father’s death in 1904, ruling over the mountainous areas of north Yemen. With the demise of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I, Yahya entered San`a and was proclaimed ruler of all Yemen. He immediately forbade the bearing of arms when entering the capital. A strong and able ruler, Yahya ended the near anarchy and lawlessness which plagued the Yemen, brought peace to the land and helped create a modern state. In 1926, the year of this presentation Riyal, the Italo-Yemeni Treaty was signed in which Italy acknowledged Yahya as king of Yemen and recognized his claims to `Aden, which was then a British crown colony. Yahya was assassinated on February 17, 1948 shocking the Arab world. Jordan’s King `Abdallah likened the event to the murder of the third caliph `Uthman b. `Affan. The Yemeni tribes rallied around Yahya’s son Ahmad who was proclaimed the new Imam.

Ulster & Albany Counties, NY; Hardenbergh Patent; Verplanck, Gulian; Livingston, Robert (“Robert of Clermont”, 1688-1775). 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 ¾ x 22 ¾” (to bottom fold), on vellum, Dec. 12, 1749. The bottom fold bound in four spots with pink ribbon. Signed “Robt. Livingston” at center of bottom fold, by red wax seal. Recorders notations and signatures on verso. Light soiling, a Fine document; 2) One page, 23 ¾ x 16” (to bottom fold), Dec. 11, 1749. Signed “Robt. Livingston” on bottom fold beside dark wine-red wax seal with bust of Queen Anne. Secretary of NY notation and appearance before Council Edward Holland signed citation on verso. Splits along folds, bottom quarter separated. Very Good. 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 signor 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.

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 Kortright…City 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. One page, 28 ½ x 15”, on vellum, March 28, 1776. Signed “Saml Verplanck” center segment on verso below his notation: “Received…the within mentioned sum of Two Hundred and twenty three Dollars in full…” Witness and appearance notations flanking. Titled on verso: “Mr. Saml. Verplanck and Wife to Mr. Isaac Noble Release / The further described Lott, as the request of Rich. Noble, sold to Sylanus Loring as the proceeds for [?] paid to Wm. Selon.” Minor soiling. Overall quite Fine. 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. 250-350

Doughty”, August 17th, 1778 for Eleven Hundred and Fifty Pounds from Mrs. Judith Verplanck for items to be delivered to “Abraham Ogden Esq. at Morris Town”.

Old Hickory Autograph Letter Signed

1522

Jackson, Andrew. Seventh President of the United States (1829-1837), known as “Old Hickory” for his tough and aggressive personality (which included sundry duels), frontiersman, politician and army general - Jackson defeated the Creek Indians at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend (1814) and the British at the Battle of New Orleans (1815); a polarizing figure in politics, he dominated the Second Party System in the late 1820’s and 1830’s, a supporter of a smaller, more limited federal government, Jackson as president, strengthened the power of the office, dismantled the Second Bank of the U.S., and began the forced relocation and resettlement of Native American peoples from the Southeast to west of the Mississippi; while his protection of citizens’ individual liberty is lauded in history, his support of slavery and pivotal role in the Indian removal is much criticized. Autograph Letter Signed “Andrew Jackson”. One page, 7 5/8 x 9 5/8”, Hermitage, October 8, 1828. Writing to Fielding Lucas, Jr., the famous cartographer in Baltimore, Jackson thanks him for “the map of Tennessee constructed by you for me.” Jackson wrote this letter during the campaign for the Presidential Election of 1828, which was held Oct.31 to Dec. 2. The campaign, a rematch between incumbent John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson - runner-up in the previous election of 1824, was marked by a prodigious amount of mudslinging. In one vicious attack, Jackson’s marriage came into question. When Jackson married his wife Rachel in 1791, the couple believed that she was divorced. Rachel’s divorce, however, was not finalized, so Jackson had to re-marry her once the legal papers were complete. This was scandal fodder for the Adams campaigners. Charles Hammond, in his Cincinnati Gazette, asked “Ought a convicted adulteress and her paramour husband be placed in the highest offices of this free and Christian land?” Meanwhile, the notorious Coffin Handbills attacked Jackson for his court martial and execution of deserters, his massacres of Indian villages and his habit of dueling. Throughout the campaign, Rachel Jackson suffered chest pains, becoming aggravated by the personal attacks on her marriage. She became ill and died on December 22, 1828. A grieving Jackson accused the Adams campaign, and Henry Clay even more so, of causing her death, decrying “I can and do forgive all my enemies. But those vile wretches who have slandered her must look to God for mercy.” When the results of the election were announced, a mob entered the White House, damaging the furniture and lights. Adams escaped through the back and large punch bowls were set up to lure the crowd outside. Conservatives were horrified by the event, and held it up as a portent of things to come from the first Democratic president. Jackson was sworn in on March 4, 1829. The letter’s recipient, Fielding Lucas, Jr. (1781-1854) is known as the earliest successful commercial map-publisher in Baltimore. The map of Tennessee to which Jackson refers was published by Lucas in 1827. Lucas founded `Lucas Bros. Inc. in 1804, becoming the first stationer in the U.S. Trivial pressmarks and light crease lines. Written in a bold, strong hand. Fine. From the collection of Walter R. Benjamin (1854-1943) of NY, “the best autograph dealer in the U.S.,” in the words of Richard Frajola, “since the 1920’s and is the best pedigree you can have.” (In 1887, Benjamin started the first shop dedicated to the sale of autographs and manuscripts in NY. The firm is still in business.) Accompanied by a blue folder with Benjamin collection label, and an 19th Century engraving of Jackson by V. Balch from a drawing by Longacre. [2] Est. 3000-5000

1525

Roosevelt, Franklin Delano. 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945), and along with Washington and Lincoln, one of the greatest of its presidents, architect of the “New Deal,” central figure in world events during the mid-20th Century, pulled the United States back from the precipice of disaster and out of economic depression, led the country to ultimate victory in WWII, Governor of New York (1929-1932), Asst. Secretary of the Navy (1913-1920); and Farley, James Aloysius (1888-1976), Postmaster General of the United States (1933-1940), political “kingmaker” and one of the first Irish Catholic politicians in American history to achieve real success on the national level, Chairman of the NY State Democratic Committee, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. A pair of Autographed Plate Sheets of U.S. Postage Stamps. 1) A sheet strip of 18 imperforate Zion 8 Cent Stamps (part of the National Parks series), plate No. 21324. In the bottom margin, Farley writes in blue-green ink: “To President Franklin D Roosevelt / This is its first sheet of its eight cent Zion stamp issued Sept. 10, 1934”. He signs James A Farley, Postmaster General below. At the far right, beneath the stamps and to the right of the plate number, Roosevelt signs in black ink Franklin D Roosevelt / 1934; A sheet strip of 20 imperforate “Mothers of America” (Whistler’s Mother) 3 Cents Stamps - arranged in two rows, plate no. 21205. In the top margin, Roosevelt signs Franklin D Roosevelt in black ink at the far left. To the right of this are the signatures of three of Roosevelt’s close advisers and cabinet members: Harry L. Hopkins, R.G. Tugwell, and Harold L. Ickes / Secretary of the Interior / Aug. 30, 1934. Harry Lloyd Hopkins (1890-1946) was one of FDR’s closest advisers and one of the architects of the New Deal. He went on to become the U.S. Secretary of Commerce (1938-1940); Rexford Guy Tugwell (1891-1979), an agricultural economist, was part of Roosevelt’s ‘Braintrust’. He was instrumental in creating the Soil Conservation Service in 1933. In that year, FDR’s inaugural year, he served as Assistant Secretary of the US Department of Agriculture. He became Undersecretary the following year; Harold L. Ickes (1874-1952) was responsible for implementing much of the New Deal. He served as U.S. Secretary of the Interior from 1933 to 1946 - the longest tenure of anyone to hold this office. FDR, like his older cousin Teddy, was an enthusiastic supporter of America’s parks. Amid the pallor of the Great Depression, Roosevelt’s Civilian Conservation Corps went into the national parks and dramatically improved them. FDR made highlypublicized trips to the parks, extolled their virtues and encouraged his fellow citizens to visit them. Despite the hard times or perhaps because of them, visits to the parks skyrocketed. For a nation whose very soul seemed imperiled, nature’s majesty offered comfort and hope. Moving forward, Roosevelt working with Harold Ickes embarked on an ambitious expansion of the park system. Bold, crisp signatures and inscription, Very Fine. Mounted in 22 ¾ x 11 ½” frame.

Important CSA Letter of Marque

1527

Davis, Jefferson; Benjamin, Judah P. Letter of Marque. Partly printed Document signed “Jefferson Davis” as President. Signed “J. P. Benjamin” as Secretary of State. Issued to the 60-ton schooner “Chesapeake,” four guns, crew of fifty, Captain Thomas Smith. Partially Printed Document, 16 ½” x 12”, mounted on cloth. There are internal fold splits, four small body holes, and one large piece missing near the center at the top. The entire document looks as if it was rescued from a fire, as smoke and water stains are evident throughout. Despite these impairments, most of the printed text, and all of the hand written entries including the signatures are intact and legible. Jefferson Finis Davis (1808 -1889) was a United States soldier and statesman, and President of the Confederate States of America during the entire Civil War. He was a West Point graduate and fought in the Mexican-American War. Davis served as the United States Secretary of War under Franklin Pierce, and as a Democratic U.S. senator from Mississippi. As a senator, he argued against secession, but agreed that each state was sovereign and had an unquestionable right to secede from the Union. After his capture in 1865, he was accused of treason, but was not tried and was released after two years. Judah Philip Benjamin (1811 - 1884) was an American politician, lawyer, and slaveholder. He served in cabinet level positions in the Confederate States of America, including Secretary of War and Secretary of State. Benjamin was a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives, he was elected by the state legislature to the US Senate from Louisiana, becoming only the second Jewish senator in U.S. history. In 1861, he was appointed by President Jefferson Davis to three different Cabinet posts in his administration. Benjamin was the first Jewish appointee to a Cabinet position in a North American government, and the first Jewish American to be seriously considered for nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Thomas Smith, the captain of the Chesapeake, was a Baltimorean who had suffered losses he attributed to the United States. He wished to send out his armed schooner to affect reprisals. The Chesapeake was one of the last ships to receive a letter of marque. This letter of marque was literally a license, granted by the Confederate States of America, to engage in privateering, the practice of fitting ordinary merchant vessels with modest armament and sending them to capture other, unarmed merchant vessels. Captured vessels were to be taken to the nearest court, and if the court ruled that the capture was legitimate, the ship and cargo were sold at auction. The proceeds were then distributed among owners and crew. The historical significance of this example may be appreciated in light of the fact that just five days after the bombardment of Fort Sumter, Jefferson Davis issued a proclamation inviting, “all those who may desire, by service in private-armed vessels on the high seas, to aid this Government in resisting so wanton and wicked an aggression, to make application for commissions or letters of marque and reprisal to be issued under the seal of these Confederate States.” Confederate Congressional authorization was granted by an act signed on May 6, 1861. Although the condition of the document leaves something to be desired, this is the only issued Confederate Letter of Marque this cataloger is aware of. Est. 3000-5000

Pony Express, Slavery: Waddell, William B. One of the founders of the Pony Express. A pair of slave and estate deeds from the Waddell family to William Waddell, both drawn in Lafayette County, Missouri, where William was a prominent businessman prior to founding the Pony Express in 1858. The pair of legal transcripts concern the estate transfer of a slave couple, named “Robert & Hannah, and complete the monetary transfer of $2,000 in consideration to the estate of Waddell’s mother. The first document, dated Jan. 15, 1855, on blue woven paper and embossed, is for the transfer of one-third interest from John Waddell for $666.67. On white paper, the second document date Feb. 16, 1859 is for the completion of the transfer of $1,333.33 made to the Waddell brothers’ married sister.

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] Est. 300-500

The John Kosior Collection of National Bank Notes John Kosior, also known as “Big John,” was born in Poland in 1914. He came to the United States while still an infant, and his family settled in Fall River, Massachusetts. John was born to parents who did not read, write or speak English. Two other children were born to this family, however these babies died in infancy as the flu epidemic swept the country. Raised as an only child, John Kosior went as far as the sixth grade. When he became an adult he joined the United States Coast Guard. There he trained guard dogs and supervised prisoners. Upon his release from the service, he came back to Fall River, becoming a member of the Fall River Boys Club. He had an imposing stature and great physical agility, becoming a handball champion in the years 1935-1937. In 1940 he joined the Fall River Fire Department. That is where his name of Big John was solidified. His kindness to rookies, his strength, his size, his heart, were all well known. He was “big” in every way. John Kosior was a voracious reader and a self taught man. He could speak on any topic and have a strong opinion, and he always seemed to give the right advice. Money was most attractive to him, not only for the artistic value, but also for the story the old bank notes held about the development and history of the banking system of the United States.

In 1978, John Kosior purchased his last bank note. A fire broke out in a six-family tenement building and John responded heroically, as he had done so many times before. He arrived on the scene and battled the flames. The fire was brought under control, but John collapsed on the back porch as he left the smoldering building. He later died from possible smoke inhalation, or a heart attack, as a result of fighting the fire. John’s collection, consisting mainly of Massachusetts Nationals, is a part of the great legacy he left behind for his children. The vastness and completeness of the collection reflects the tremendous effort he put into acquiring the notes. They were all purchased before his death, many from legendary dealers like Donlon and Philpot. Nothing has been added or subtracted from the collection since 1978, and only one or two notes appear in any census we are aware of. In a market place where “fresh” material seems to be very difficult to find, here is a collection that is about as “fresh” as can be imagined. Take advantage of the opportunity to bid in this sale - some of these notes may not be available again for decades.

He became Life Member No. 53 of The American Numismatic Association - a relationship he was so proud to be a part of. Because of his serious interest in numismatics he communicated with many people from all walks of life in the hope of purchasing that one special note to add to his ever growing collection. This became a lifelong hobby and it brought him much happiness. From humble beginnings, Big John made his own way in America, provided for his family and left a lasting legacy for the grandchildren he would never meet. Teresa Kosior Barretto

2294

CSA. T-1. $1000. 1861. PF-1. No.428. A. Green. John C. Calhoun, left, Andrew Jackson, right. VGFine details, with some skillful fold split repairs. All of the major design details are visible, but the paper is a bit limp, and the edges have been trimmed just up to the borders. Just before hostilities broke out, CSA Secretary of the Treasury Memminger placed an order with the National Bank Note Company in New York City for the bank note plates that printed this bill. When the War Between the States commenced, Federal authorities visited the National Bank Note Company and seized the plates. From that moment on, the CSA Treasurer had to utilize the limited resources of the South in order to obtain plates, paper, and ink to fill the critical need for bank notes. The quality of notes issued later in the war varied; some issues were adequate, others not so adequate. None would match the quality achieved by National Bank Note in this first series of “Montgomery” notes. Est. 10000-15000

CSA. T-2. $500. 1861. Cr.2, PF-1. No.22. A. Green. “The Crossing” by Smillie. Appearance of Very Fine. Very attractive, with full margins and vivid green color.

This example appeared in two previous numismatic auctions; Barney Bluestone 1935, and Federal Coin Exchange 1957. In both cases, the note was described as Fine, POC. The current example will fit well into any decent collection of CSA paper money. Bid accordingly. Est. 15000-25000
