The May 2012 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 cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover only) in United States Dollars for a convenience charge of two percent (2%) up to a total of $20,000.00. 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. 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. No lots may be returned without a written request by the

22.

24.

successful bidder and the written approval of SPINK. In the unlikely event of returning a lot, SPINK must receive notification of the buyer’s intent within three (3) days of the buyer’s receipt of the lot. The following lots may not be returned for any reason whatsoever: (a) lots containing ten or more items; (b) lots described as having faults or defects because of the faults described or any others, including lots described as “repaired”, “corroded”, “holed”, “whizzed”, or similar damage, except for non-authenticity; (c) illustrated lots because of centering, margins, etc. or other factors shown in the illustrations; (d) lots described “AS IS”, including third party graded coins or banknotes (i.e. PCGS, NGC, ANACS, ICG); (e) lots valued primarily for the bullion content; (f) lots examined by postal viewers; and (g) any philatelic extension lot unless the conditions set forth in Item 18 above is complied with fully. Except for lots placed on extension, as per the conditions of Item 18 above, no lots may be returned for any reason whatsoever after thirty (30) days from sale date. Late payment for purchase may, at SPINK option, be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges. If any disputes arise regarding payment, authenticity, or description between the bidder and SPINK, SPINK at its sole discretion, may submit the disputed matter to binding arbitration in Dallas, Texas, to which the bidder, by placing a bid and hereby accepting these Terms and Conditions of Sale, agrees to be bound. United States coins and currency will not, in conformity with the law, be opened at less than face value. 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. 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. 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 IN A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN DALLAS, TEXAS. 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. Execution of on-line internet bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and SPINK does not accept liability for failing to execute an online internet bid or for errors or omissions in connection with this activity.

Wonderful Grouping of German Notgeld

124 124

Three Albums Containing Over 1,500 Different Notgeld Examples. [Approx. 1,500+] Notgeld is the German name for emergency money issued mostly in Austria-Hungary, Germany, and their territories near the end of World War I. These colorful and often whimsical notes were issued by savings banks, municipalities, and private and state owned firms. The notes were not officially legal tender, acceptable for all debts, but they did circulate widely. Our consignor enjoyed collecting stamps, and bank notes, and he had his own unique way of organizing his notgeld collection - he attempted to find a stamp with a cancellation from each town where there was a notgeld issuer. While he was not completely successful, the vast majority of the towns are represented by stamps. The notes are stored in three large albums, each note carefully held in place by corner pockets. A list of lot contents by town will be provided upon request. Est. 1,000-1,500

The “Bison� Ten, for good reason, is among the most iconic American banknote issues, and for the thousands of aspiring Large Size collectors, a Gem Bison certainly must represent the pinnacle of their collecting desires. For those few fortunate enough to have the budget for such a note, herein lies an opportunity. On the present specimen, visibly fresh surfaces exist throughout with the addition of boardwalk margins and sharp corners. The seal and serial number maintain vibrant red color with bold inking elsewhere. Likely taken by an early collector from a pack, as other similarly serialed examples in lofty grades show in the census. (photo)

Extraordinary 1934C Dallas District $500 Federal Reserve Note Front and Back Specimen Set 618

www.SpinkSmythe.com

$500 1934C Dallas District Federal Reserve Note Front and Back Specimen Note Set. [2] 1) Fr. 2204-K. 1934C. $500. No.K00000000B. Plate G3. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ Face Specimen. 2) Fr. 2204-K. 1934C. $500. Back specimen. PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ Back Specimen. Some press bed smearing is noticed on the back specimen but not mentioned on the PCGS holder. Note that the zeros in the serial numbers differ slightly from those use on the regular issues. For all intents and purposes, the last $500 small size notes issued and circulated were the 1934A series. Although BEP records indicate that 2,472 1934B $500 Federal Reserve Notes were printed, all on the Atlanta District, according to Friedberg none have been seen. The same is true for the 1934C $500 Federal Reserve Notes. 1,644 were printed (1440 from New York and 204 from Boston), but none have been seen. Anyone attempting to complete a set of all the known small size issue would therefore need to obtain a $500 1934C specimen set, such as the one offered here. For the advanced collector of Dallas FRNs, purchasing this specimen pair may well be the only way to ever complete a set containing one example of every known Dallas District Federal Reserve Note.

Scarce High Denomination Gold Certificate

622 622

Fr. 2407. 1928. $500 Gold Certificate. No.A0092147A. Plate E. CGC Extremely Fine 40 PQ. Among the most desirable of all Small Size notes, the present example pairs two of the most heavily collected areas of banknotes - high denomination and gold note type. For those reasons, and the relative scarcity in any grade, demand for the $500 Gold Certificate far outstrips the notes market supply. The present note remains in perfectly presentable condition, with a bold golden seal and serial number and evenly spaced margins. Several vertical folds are readily apparent. A one time bath and press is also evident, and the grade assigned by CGC would likely be considered generous when compared to PCGS and PMG standards, but for the collector desirous of trophy note, the present represents good value for the price.

1879 3 Cent Nickel. NGC PR67. Seemingly pristine with the adornment of soft iridescent pastel shades on both sides and soft frost on the devices. If searching out a representative for type set inclusion, or attempting to assembling a Superb Gem set, the present would seem to fill either role admirably. (photo) Est. 500-700

1029

1884 3 Cent Nickel. NGC Proof Details, Improperly Cleaned. A difficult proof date to distinguish from the rare mint state issue, with the present example having subdued reflectivity and an undistinguishing strike. Faint hairlines on both sides account for the “cleaned” designation. Est. 150-250

Est. 200-300

1909-S Lincoln 1 Cent. NGC AU Details, Obverse Scratched. Nearly fully red with a small thin pinscratch in the right obverse field. Est. 100-150

1024 1024

1909-S VDB 1 Cent. NGC Fine 12. The undisputed key to the series and among the most desired coins in all of numismatics. While not a particularly high grade example, it is attractive and problem-free, and should excited the collector who remains a few coins short of set completion. (photo) Est. 300-500

1025

1914-D 1 Cent. NGC Fine Details, Environmental Damage. No discernable marks are evident with attractive dark brown color on both sides. A key date that remains in constant demand. Est. 100-150

1026

1922 No D “Strong Reverse” 1 Cent. Good. Woodgrain toning is present over much of the obverse with darker, boldly detailed reverse surfaces. Accompanied by a NGC certification insert that suggested this piece was not encapsulated because of “residue”. A necessary variety for the Lincoln cent set builder. Est. 150-250

1027

Pair of Nicely Preserved Three Cent Nickels. 1) 1868. Select Uncirculated. Lightly golden with nary a mark and typical central striking incompleteness. 2) 1873 “Open 3”. Choice AU. A minute wisp of friction graces Liberty’s cheek. [2] Est. 100-150

1883 No Cents 5 Cents. NGC PR66. Wonderfully preserved with pale gold and lilac patina traversing the obverse and reverse surfaces. While not detrimental to the eye appeal, minor spotting is evident with viewed with magnification, and likely prevented the Superb Gem Proof designation. (photo) Est. 400-600

1037

1889 5 Cents. NGC PR64. An attractive proof specimen that would serve nicely as a type representative, with flashy gold, orange, and maroon color atop the obverse with pastel lilac color over much of the reverse. (photo) Est. 200-400

1038

1910 5 Cents. NGC Proof Details, Obverse Scratched. Wispy gold and purple patina adorns both sides with a small diagonal scratch high on Liberty cheek that is likely a result of one-time contact with a staple. All considered, still very attractive and likely very affordable. Est. 100-150

1035 1035

1885 5 Cents. NGC VF25. A low-mintage date and when searching through album collections, the date that is most frequently accompanied by an empty hole. The present example, moderately worn and problemfree, remains far better than most, with LIBERTY remaining boldly visible in the tiara. As such, a coin that will surely be highly demanded and hotly contested. (photo) Est. 600-800

1039 1039

1912-S 5 Cents. NGC Fine12. A problem-free original key date example with gray color in the centers and slightly darker color around the devices where dirty has settled after years of circulation. Very well suited for a circulated Liberty nickel set. (photo) Est. 150-250

1040

1912-S 5 Cents. NGC Fine12. A second example of this better date issue that is presented remarkably similar to the last. Est. 150-250

1041

1912-S 5 Cents. Fine Details, Scratched. A nearly fully original key-date example with an ancient thin scratch bisecting Liberty’s neck being the only blemish worthy of note. That said, the overall distraction is rather minor and may or may not prevent problemfree certification. Est. 100-150

1042

1926-D 5 Cents. NGC AU58. Boldly struck with attractive golden color on both sides and the barest trace of friction on the highpoints. Est. 200-300

1043 1043

1937-D 3-Legged 5 Cents. NGC XF Details, Reverse Scratched. A desirable key to the series with pleasing detail remaining on the highpoints. A thin scratch runs diagonally across the bison on the reverse, but is relatively trivial in terms of visual impact. (photo) Est. 300-400

1044

1821 “Small Date” 10 Cents. VF. LM-10. While not especially expensive at the VF level, finding a problem-free example that exhibits full originality is a scarce occurrence, and thus makes the present example particularly collectible. An ideal example for the circulated set builder. Est. 60-80

1045

1830 10 Cents. XF Details, Cleaned. Appropriate as a mid-level type representative with attractive toning atop surfaces that have been made mildly glossy as a result of an old cleaning. Est. 40-60

1047

1051 1051

1914-S 25 Cents. NGC Fine 15. A semi-key in the series and surprising scarce in mid-level grades with NGC, after 25 years in business, having only graded 14 examples at the Fine level, with only 28 finer examples, spanning all grades, up to the Uncirculated tier. (photo) Est. 200-400

1054 1054

1919-D 25 Cents. NGC AU55. A highly demanded semi-key with significant luster remaining on the surfaces and light toning along portions of the edges. As is typical of the date, some central striking weakness in apparent on the obverse within Liberty’s head and shield. (photo) Est. 400-600

1055

1919-S 25 Cents. NGC VF30. Fully original with dark russet patina around the rims and golden-gray color in the centers. A pleasing mid-grade better issue. Est. 150-250

1048 1048

1916-D 10 Cents. NGC Good 6. Always in demand with golden-silver surfaces that show some darker color around portions of the reverse edges. While well worn, the 1916-D is the unquestionable king of the Mercury dimes, and has justifiably earned its notoriety after decades of sustained collector demand at all grade levels.

1065

1818/7 50 Cents. NGC AU Details, Environmental Damage. O-103, R.3. Boldly struck, minimally toned, and still quite lustrous with several charcoal streaks on the reverse surfaces that suggest long term exposure to a volatile items such as a rubber band. Est. 150-250

1068 1068

1069

1822 50 Cents. NGC XF40. Maintaining high-end eye appeal with gray centers that give way to antique rainbow colored peripheries. Several light marks are noted to the left of Liberty’s portrait, but they do little to distract, and are certainly commensurate for the grade level. (photo) Est. 200-400 1823 50 Cents. NGC XF45. O-111a, R.2. Slate gray on the obverse with a lighter reverse that holds golden highlights around the legends. No significant marks are of note making it particularly appropriate for a mid-grade set.

1077

1828 “Square Base 2 - Small 8s - Large Letters” 50 Cents. NGC MS61. O-112, R.3. An ideal example for type with large bold stars that are sharply portrayed with equally detailed centers. The luster retains incredibly flash with minor highpoint friction accounting for the designation. (photo) Est. 700-900

1074

1826 50 Cents. NGC AU Details, Improperly Cleaned. O-117, R.2. Boldly defined with attractive multicolored patina highlighting the devices. Light, but noticeable hairlines confirm the designation. Est. 100-150

1078

1830 “Small O” 50 Cents. NGC AU55. O-102, R.3. Nearly fully white with considerable luster in the fields and light friction on Liberty’s portrait and the reverse eagle.

1079

1830 50 Cents. Choice AU Details, Cleaned - Environmental Damage. O-102, R.3. Essentially fully detailed, but once cleaned and now darkly toned as a result many years of storage in a highly reactive environment. A lot of detail for the money. Est. 80-100

1827 “Square Base 2” 50 Cents. NGC MS62. O131, R.2. An impressive Uncirculated specimen with dusky-silver centers that give way to soft golden and multicolored peripheries. Inspection with a loupe reveals minor grazes that precludes a finer designation. (photo) Est. 700-900

1076

1827 50 Cents. NGC XF Details, Improperly Cleaned. O-117, R.3. Brownish toning exists toward the edges of both sides with softer gray in the centers. The cleaning designation seems rather harsh for a nearly 200 year old coin as hairlines, present to the left of Liberty’s portrait, are very slight. Est. 100-150

1834 “Small Date - Small Letters” 50 Cents. XF Details, Cleaned. O-112, R.3. A tad bright in the now yellowish centers with a light band of color that encircles much of the obverse and reverse legends. An attractive example despite the past cleaning. Est. 50-70

1085 1085

1836 Lettered Edge 50 Cents. NGC MS64. O113, R.2. A wonderful Bust example that is seldom offered finer - and it’s no surprise. The surfaces of the present near-Gem are boldly defined with satiny luster on both sides that remain unobscured by marks of significance. Perhaps most appealing is the original “skin” that this beauty still holds with light golden and multicolor hues around much of the devices. A prize for any collector. (photo) Est. 1,800-2,200

A small area of gray toning, running diagonally from Liberty’s nose is apparently the culprit of “spot removal”. (photo) Est. 150-250 Pair of Early Half Dollars. 1) 1806 50 Cents.

1866 Motto 1 Dollar. NGC XF45. Incredibly attractive for the grade with antique rainbow coloration on both sides with several minor rim bruises, that while acceptable at the grade level, are worthy of mention. (photo) Est. 500-700

1115 1115

1871 1 Dollar. NGC AU53. Fiery antique patina caresses both sides with crisply defined device detail aside from a wisp of highpoint friction. Light marks, clearly a result of commercial usage and not collector mishandling, remain few and far between with none being overly detrimental to the eye appeal. An epitome of originality. (photo) Est. 400-600

1871 1 Dollar. NGC VF30. Original olive-brown in appearance with iridescent rainbow patina atop the obverse and reverse surfaces. While common as a date, this example will surely be eagerly snapped up by the advanced mid-level type enthusiast. Est. 300-400

1879-CC 1 Dollar. NGC MS63. Among the most sought-after dates in the Morgan dollar series, the 1879 Carson City issue has a middling mintage of 756,000, but after the Government Services Administration had dispersed hundreds of thousands of Treasury-stored Carson City dollars in the 1970s, and relatively few carried the 1879 date, the scarcity of the date, and more so Uncirculated specimens, was confirmed. The present specimen, reaching the coveted Select tier, maintains a crisp strike with lustrous fields that maintain full luster with underlying shimmering flash. A light ring of pastel color halos the obverse legends and confirms originality. An undeniable opportunity to obtain an elite dollar. (photo) Est. 5,000-6,000

A key Carson City issue in lightly circulated grades and above with the present specimen sitting at the low-end of the AU tear with highpoint detail that remains strong, but general scruffiness that lessens the luster. (photo) Est. 500-700 1880-S 1 Dollar. NGC MS66. Well struck as is typical of the date with semi-prooflike obverse surfaces and fully lustrous reverse surfaces. Vivid golden color highlights portions of the legends and bolsters the premium quality appeal. Est. 150-250 1880-CC “GSA” 1 Dollar. Uncirculated.

1139

1889-CC 1 Dollar. VF. Among the most soughtafter dates in the entire Morgan dollar series, with examples at all grades being constantly demanded. The present, a mid-tier example, has seen years of circulation, but the detail has only experienced moderate softening, with soft gray color on the highpoints now pleasingly contrasting darker gray fields. Atypical of the grade, few marks interfere with the surfaces, leaving a smooth attractive appearance. A few very minor edge dings are noted, but do little to detract and are only mentioned for accuracy’s sake. (photo) Est. 500-700

1885-CC 1 Dollar. Uncirculated. A well-known key date issue that until the release of the Treasury’s hoard during the Nixon administration, was one of rarest of the Morgan dollars. To this day, a highly sought date that is seen in uncirculated condition far more often than circulated. (photo) Est. 300-500

1890-CC “GSA” 1 Dollar. Uncirculated. A rarely offered GSA hoard date, with examples, when offered, often selling for multiples of their non-GSA brethren.

A scarce opportunity for the GSA morgan collector that remains housed in its original box of issue with accompanying certificate. (photo) Est. 800-1,000

1147 1147

1893-CC 1 Dollar. AU. The final year of Carson City Morgan dollar production and a key to the series in XF and above. The surfaces remain untoned with only slight softening of the devices. Subdued luster is likely the result of a past dip. (photo) Est. 900-1,100

1145 1145

1892-CC 1 Dollar. Select Uncirculated. Exceptionally fresh with beaming luster on both sides, relatively few marks in the fields, and only minor grade-limiting tick on Liberty’s cheek. A highly demanded date in this state of preservation. (photo) Est. 700-900

Beautifully Detailed Early Ten

1801 10 Dollars. NGC AU55. BD-2, R.2. Among a large swath of collectors, the first years of U.S. mint coinage were, and to this day remains, the high watermark of artistic expression in American coinage. Coupled with the intriguing history, and lasting name-power, that surrounds the time - George Washington’s second term as President, his passing of the torch to John Adams, and then to Thomas Jefferson, and so on - the types in all denominations carry an undeniable appeal. The present example, the largest denomination of its day, certainly sits even further elevated, as its striking in gold, size, and limited survival rate truly gives it elite distinction that few ever have the change of calling their own. The present specimen remains nicely detailed due to a bold central strike and only minor highpoint softening that doesn’t distract in the least. The fields, unlike many examples that survive at this level, don’t hold much in the terms of coin to coin contact, but do show light handling, perhaps much of it a result of passing over counters and coming in and out of pockets. Desirable orange-red patina highlights the devices and enhances the eye appeal. Loupe inspection does reveal several wispy marks on Liberty’s portrait and above the eagle’s right wing on the reverse, but these blend relatively well into the fabric of the coin. All told, a wonderful opportunity for the collector to take the plunge and acquire what will surely always be considered among the most desired types in American numismatics.

Hawaii. 1880 Wailuku Plantation 1 Real Token. NGC VF25. Medcalf 2TE-6. A significant and early plantation token issuance and for the historian of agricultural history, among the neatest relics one can imagine. According to the often-referenced Hawaiian Money, by Donald Medcalf and Ronald Russell, The First Wailuku Sugar Co. employed 160 men and produced 1,600 tons of cane sugar in 1880. Two token denominations - 1 Real and Half Real - were struck by plantation blacksmiths and issued as payment to its many laborers. The present, well used and pleasing in appearance, retains glossy red-brown in the fields with darkening toward the protected devices. No marks are of note.

Hawaii. 1882 Haiku Plantation 1 Rial Token. NGC XF45. Medcalf TE-15. Highly desirable not only to Hawaii enthusiasts, but also largely to traditional American collectors as a result of its inclusion in the widely circulated “Redbook”. The Haiku Sugar Company, as it was officially known, was located on the island of Maui, east of Wailuku. The one rial denomination, borrowed and adapted from the wellknown Spanish real, when issued was equivalent to approximately one day’s wages. Per Medcalf, the Haiku Plantation tokens are considered “the most artistic and well struck of the early metal tokens.” Given the radiant obverse design, it’s not hard to see why. A wonderful preserved specimen that presents a true opportunity to obtain a scarce piece of this charismatic island’s agricultural history. (photo) Est. 1,000-1,200

Collection of Large Cents. A notable formation of cents, the earliest example dated 1794 and representing the Liberty Cap type with examples running through to 1856 and the Braided Hair type. As in oftseen, many early examples are accompanied by afflictions of heavy circulation such as scratches, dents, and corrosion, but all examples retain date legibility. Many later date examples are observed with VF to XF detail. A fresh lot, we are confident that examples have not been inspected in decades, if ever, for rare die pairings. As such, in-person study of this lot is strongly advised as not only do dates and grades vary, but a treasured type could be buried within. Sold as is, no returns. [127] Est. 2,000-2,500

Abraham Lincoln Bust Plaque by Victor D. Brenner. An impressive 7” x 9” bronze foundry cast plaque affixed to pink and green marble stand with easel at back. Cast by S. Klaber & Co., NY with a stamp at the left edge, and featuring a large handsome rightfacing bust of Lincoln with “Abraham Lincoln ** 1809 * 1865 **” at base. The right edge reads, “Copyright 1907 By V D Brenner”. A well known and impressive work, so much so that President Roosevelt’s fondness for it led to Victor D. Brenner’s design (a remarkable similar one at that) of the Lincoln cent two years later. The surfaces of the present example are beautifully preserved with an even chocolate-brown patina with close inspection yielding minor verdigris, as it typical. Minor corner chips are noted, but taking the size and weight into account, the overall state of preservation is remarkable. Given the relevance of the subject, the present piece would fit appropriately into a collection of plaques, Lincolniana, or even as a capstone to a Lincoln cent set. (photo) Est. 1,500-2,000

American Revolution: [Israel Putnam at Bunker Hill] Important series of letters most concerning the “Dearborn Affair” of 1818, in which former Secretary of War, Gen Henry Dearborn questioned Putnam’s role as commander of Continental troops during the Battle of Bunker (Breed’s) Hill. Begins with a Revolutionary War-date Manuscript Letter written and signed on behalf of General Israel Putnam by his son, Col Daniel Putnam, Pomfret, [CT], January 14, 1780. He writes to Mrs Wadsworth that they have arrived after “a fatiguing march of four days.” Though his leg and foot have improved, “my arm seems yet to be a useless member.” Putnam had suffered a stroke a month earlier, hence his dependence on his son’s writing. This letter split into five pieces at folds, about Good. With choice content ALS by Judge Thomas Grosvenor of Pomfret, April to Daniel Putnam, son of the late General Israel Putnam, recounting the battle: “Being under the Comand of General Putnam, part of our Regiment...were ordered to march on the Evening of the 16th of January AD 1775 to Breed’s Hill, where under his

immediate Superintendance ground was broken and a Redoubt formed...Genl Putnam...directed principally the operations...The British Army having made dispositions for Landing at Morton’ [sic] Point, were covered by the fire of Shot & Shell from Caps Hill in Boston which it had opened on our redoubt early in the Morning...A detachment of four Lieutenants of which I was one...and One hundred & twenty Men under the Command of Capt Knowlton were by the General ordered to take Post at the rail fence on the left of the Breastwork that ran North from the Redoubt to the bottom of Breed Hill...Our detachment...took up a rail fence and placed it against another...nearly parallel with the Line of te Breastwork and extended our left nearly to Mistick River. Each man was furnished with a pound of Gunpowder & forty eight Balls...A second division of British Troops landed when they commenced a Fire of their Field Artillery...against the rail fence. Then formed in Columns advance to the Attack displayed in linea bout the distance of Musket Shot and commenced firing...Our whole Line opened upon the Enemy; and so precise and fatal was our fire athat in the course of a short time they gave way.” A second charge was repulsed, but after being reinforced, the British forced the detachment to retreat with heavy casualties; Grosvenor heard later that troops ordered to his aid would not go. “On the Ground the most active within my Observation were General Putnam, Col Prescott and Capt Knowlton.” He assures Daniel Putnam that he is shocked to have to defend someone whose military character was so evident to all who knew him. With a second copy of the same letter [in another hand] that was enclosed to Nathaniel Terry, with covering letter that calls Dearborn’s claims “as devoid of Truth as they are of honorable Sentiment.” Those claims included one - still repeated in history books today - that Dearborn was positioned in the very place that Grosvenor says his men stood. With an interesting Memorandum, unsigned, concerning the battle, and General Putnam’s actions toward Major John Small. Days after the battle, Major Small sent a hamper of wine to General Putnam with gratitude for his kindness. Putnam admitted that he and Small had been as close as brothers (they had fought together in the French and Indian War), and at the redoubt, when the enemy was once repulsed, “ ‘The first object I saw was Small alone. He was not more than ten or 12 yards distance and was just turning to descend the hill...A man standing next to me drew up his piece to level at him....Seizing him by the shoulder,I called aloud, “Spare that man...he is my friend...Two or three others...were stopped by my voice...’” Small then sent another note inviting Putnam to leave the American service, and that he and his sons could “make his own terms...The offers were spurned, & Washington was made acquainted with all the particulars. He said, the times were jealous, & it would be better not to say anything of it.” With two ALS by Daniel Putnam to Col. John Trumbull on Dearborn’s claims, another ALS from Daniel’s uncle Sam Putnam, who names survivors from the battle who can support the late general’s reputation in the fight, with Daniel’s reply. Several letters and sworn statements were published in defense of Israel Putnam, including that of Grosvenor and of the patriots interviewed by Sam Putnam, and have appeared in the appendix of Increase Tarbox’s Life of General Putnam, published in 1876. With an additional ALS by Daniel Putnam, Brooklyn, NY, July 1818, his retained copy of a letter to “the Editor of the Centinel,” clearing up a misunderstanding that had arisen after he wrote to former President John Adams about the command structure of the Continental Army at the time of Bunker Hill. With one other letter offering moral support, and an ALS by Daniel Putnam about his pension; finally, with a later family letter. One letter with small hole affecting two words, all with some fold or edge wear as usual for their age, but in every case VG. [14] (photo)

American Revolution: Robert Howe American Revolutionary general (1732-86); in command of the Southern theater, he suffered from clashes with local politicians over command of militia, hampering his effectiveness; led the Continental espionage network in the Hudson Highlands; put down a rebellion of soldiers in 1783. Rare lengthy Autograph Letter Signed “R. Howe” as major general, 3-1/2 pages, legal folio, Hudson Highlands, (NY), January 7, 1780. He thanks Mr Wadsworth for his letter, but “I have my doubts... I had every reason to think it was safe on the 10th & then in high Spirits & in no immediate...danger, as it would have taken more time to adjust the...ceremonies of surrender than two days, nor do I think it is believ’d to be thus, in New York, for my spies, one of which was in theer only yesterday morning, say it is not credited, tho’ they...are preparing...The Patriots in Every state...if they do not exert themselves, our situation will be more d(?) not to say alarming...” He asks Wadsworth for supplies, for “we are hungry, and consequently not very Delicate, and tho’ fat Beef and middling Beef is Better than poor beef, yet poor Beef is better than none. I was (when I applied to you) as confident of having your condition exertions in favour of the Army, as I am of your continuing them...” Partial fold separation, toning, minor edge wear, VG. Howe’s heavy pen and show-through from versos make reading this fascinating espionage letter a challenge; worthy of further research. (photo)

American Asylum for the Deaf Interesting series of letters, including an interesting ALS by George Henry Loring, a deaf student at the Hartford American Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb, 4 full pages (possibly with missing pages, though the writer’s style makes it unclear if he has simply skipped from one sentence to another), 4to, January 27, 1818. He writes to an unidentified Hartford native in Washington DC that the school’s co-founder Laurent “Clerc...teaches the deaf and dumb, and they attend and write on the slate every day...during 3 hours or 2 hours...Mr. Clerc always teaches the deaf and dumb about the bible every Saturday...He gives Mr. [co-founder Thomas Hopkins] Gallaudet some signs for teaching his 7 pupils....You may tell [US Senator and Asylum benefactor Josiah Quincy] about my character. My eye is blind, but one is not...I am little and deaf and dumb boy. I am 11 years old. I was born in Boston...” With ALS from JL Skinner to Hartford pillar Nathaniel Terry, 1 page, Washington March 22, 1819. He thanks Terry “together with your other fellow citizens, for the successful, very honorable manner, in which you have accomplished the object of their wishes, in regard to the Connecticut Asylum. The Asylum...is one of those sublime refinements, which belong to the social state in its highest improvements...” With a pair of letters from 1821 concerning the sale of land owned by the asylum in and near Tuscaloosa, Alabama. One 1821 letter with partial fold splits, otherwise all VG. The American Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb (now the American School for the Deaf) was the first such institution to be successfully established in the country (a similar school in Virginia lasted for just a year). It came about when Thomas H Gallaudet was engaged by a local surgeon to create a school suitable for his daughter, Alice Cogswell, who had lost her hearing in a childhood illness. Gallaudet traveled to Europe, where he enlisted established teacher of the deaf Laurent Clerc. They returned to Hartford and opened the asylum in 1817 with a class of seven students, including Miss Cogswell and George Loring, whose letter appears here. It was at the asylum that Clerc’s French sign language, along with many additions from students’ own home-made signs, developed into American Sign Language. [4]

Civil War: Appomattox Outstanding series of 15 camp letters from trooper Rufus Smith of the 1st Maine Cavalry, 1864-65, highlighted by a letter in pencil from “Burksville Station Va,” 3 pages, 8vo, April 12, 1865. He writes home that “Probably before this reaches you - you will have learned of the destruction of Lee’s Army. It may seem doubtful to you at first that such an army as his could be destroyed in ten days, but it is so for I was in his lines two days previous to his surrender - the 7th Va relieved me of all my necessary articles - such as hat, boots, coat, pockettbook, knife, Blankett istol Rations &c. It was well worth what I lost to have the pleasure of traveling through their lines, and seeing a race of poor conquered people...We escorted Gen Grant from the front to this place yesterday...My compliments to all...Tell them we have whipped Gen Lee into the Union.” Smith had been captured by Lee’s forces, and as such he finds that his officers will not let him fight, as he has not been formally exchanged. He doubts he ever will, for as he writes on April 29, “the news has come to these Hd. Qrs. that the Rebel Gen Johnson [sic, Joseph E Johnston] has surrendered all his forces...to Gen Sherman.” Johnston had surrendered on the 26th. On May 14 he worries about “the Mexican emigration” of many Confederates, and asks his father, “Do you think we are always going to have war, and I had better go?” On the 31st, he is at Chesterfield Court House, near Petersburg, VA, “for the purpose of keeping the Negroes in Subjugation and preserving order...As yet, we have had no trouble...The Whites were all sick of the war both in and out of he army, and they are now as humble as the blacks...We received news yesterday of the Surrender of Kirby Smith and all the Rebel forces west of the Mississippi...We will soon be home.” The earlier letters are not devoid of good content, and cover Smith’s saber injury at the Battle of St Mary’s Church, his opinion of Gen Judson Kilpatrick (who makes a raid on Richmond in March 1864 and “it is thought it will be a failure;” it was), and news of Gen Philip Sheridan’s capture of Jubal Early (a false report, though Sheridan came close to making it true and Early was soon relieved of command). With the usual flaws, overall VG. With ten original envelopes. [25]

Civil War: Blockade Runners - Georgia Important ALS by Assistant Adjutant General T.B. Ray, aide to Gen William Hardee, 1-2/3 pages, 4to, Charleston, SC, November 6, 1864. He writes to Gen Lafayette McLaws, commander of the District of Georgia, that “The Department at Richmond has expressed the earnest wish to encourage Blockade Running in every quarter as a means of obtaining Supplies for our armies, and has suggested Savannah, through Warsaw Inlet, as a practicable port...Lieut Genl Hardee begs that you will afford him all facilities...” Docketed on lower third of second page.

By Christmas, Savannah was in Union hands.

Civil War: Samuel Gardiner American inventor; devised an exploding bullet for use against ammunition wagons; the United States purchased 110,000 of them, but soldiers (including Confederates, who had captured at least 10,000 rounds) used them against enemy personnel, notably at the Battle of Gettysburg; condemned as “barbarous” by Gen. US Grant, they were later outlawed. Important Document Signed “Saml. Gardiner,” 3 pages, legal folio, New York, November 19, 1861. An agreement between the inventor and Robert J. Hubbard, in which Gardiner, having “invented a new and useful improvement and invention in the forming and designing of an Explosive projectile, called an Explosive Bullet, or shell or Ball for Muskets, Rifles and Cannons, and an Explosive or detonating powder to be used therewith and a new fuze in form and substance also to be used in connection with the above...has heretofore filed in the Office of the Commissioner of Patents” sells to Hubbard a 1/8 share in the patent rights on the bullets in consideration of $500, including 1/8 of any money received in a contract with the United States government to purchase the shells. Signed by both men at close, with notarization on verso of last page. Minor edge wear, overall VG. Gardiner’s bullet was ingeniously fused to detonate 1.25 seconds after being fired, and was made in at least two calibers, .58 for the standard Union rifle and .52 for Sharps carbines. He offered them to the US government in June 1862 and was given a contract that November. Only 20,000 of the smaller caliber were issued, making them prized rarities for collectors of genuine Civil War ammunition. (photo)

Civil War: [Robert E Lee] Mary Custis Lee Wife of Confederate General Robert E Lee (1808-73); great-granddaughter of Martha Washington; inherited the Arlington estate that became Arlington National Cemetary. Outstanding association Autograph Note Signed in third person 1/2 page, 12mo, no place “Wednesday Dec 21st,” no place or year (probably West Point, NY, 1853). She writes, “Mrs. Lee Will be happy to see Cadet Ruger on Saturday evening next at 6-1/2 oclock.” Addressed by her to the cadet at “No 94” on verso. Discolorations affect one word, but overall VG. This was almost certainly written while Mrs. Lee’s husband was superintendent at the US Military Academy at West Point. During his tenure, December 21 fell on a Wednesday only in 1853. If that it the case, this must have been written to Thomas H. Ruger, who was graduated in 1854, and who would later also become superintendent of West Point! Ruger, like most of Lee’s students, would fight for the Union in the Civil War; he was recognized for his service at Gettysburg and at Franklin. (photo)

ALS “J. Longstreet” in pencil, 2-1/2 pages, 8vo, Point Clear, AL, August 5, 1866.

I don’t think that Mrs Longstreet will be able to go as she is about to lose her old nurse...I am coming on business however as much as pleasure. We want cotton and are not afraid that we shall get more than we can attend to. As much of your cotton comes to N.O. via the river &c, I wish to look for our share. Fairfax writes me that he is looking for you and I in London...” Partial fold splits, stains including paste stain on last page, small hole affects one word without harming legibility. About VG. This letter features a markedly different style of penmanship than Longstreet displayed during most of the war, for here he was forced to write with his left hand after his right one was paralyzed by a shoulder injury suffered in the Battle of the Wilderness.

Civil War: Soldier’s Archive Choice group of 26 items, 1863-1890, concerning Milo H Cooley, a drummer in Company F of the 27th Massachusetts Volunteers. The earliest letter, from SP Cooley (Milo’s brother) in Washington NC (on the Inner Banks), April 14, 1863, addresses their father, explaining that he has not been taken prisoner, and “we are all right as yet but are completely surrounded by the enemy! The Siege has been carried on sixteen days and as yet very few are wounded...We received reinforcements last night...” He cuts his note short, as “the enemy has commenced firing!” The next, from December 1863, is from Cooley’s friend James Gowdy of the 2nd Ohio Volunteers in Chattanooga, to Cooley in Newport News, VA: “Our regiment has done as much hard marching as any...but I have stood it all and thank the Lord that I am...fat and hearty...My weight is (145 lbs)...” He is paying extortionate prices for food: “1.00 for 2 loaves of bread...but it will not last long. The Rail Road will soon be finished from Bridgeport...[Until then] you can judge for yourself whether a large army can be well supplied with Hard Tack and sow belly...Government Grub suits me very well if they will only give me enough of it...More than one third of Gen. Hookers 12th corps will reenlist...I missed one of the hardest fights that our regiment ever was in...the battle of Chicamauga on the 19th & 20th of Sept last. Our company had 7 men wounded & 13 taken prisoners...” A month later, SP Cooley writes again, this time from Hatteras Inlet, NC, where after a rough crossing of shallow water, “we were the sickest fellows you ever saw...We are anchored...in a hard storm.” The next day, Ambrose E “Burnside & Foster arrived to day and brought the mail...The Rebbel gun...Boats are out on the water for us and so we are for them...The New York Zouaves...run aground...Orders have been passed through the fleet to have all signal lights down and our eyes are all open ready for a fight...” A Telegram from SP at Bermuda Hundred on May 19 1864 announces “Milo is missing I think a prisoner. I am well.” After an apparent family inquiry, the Massachusetts Military State Agency informs Milo’s wife that he does not appear on any lists of exchanged soldiers or Union deaths provided by Confederate prisons. He survives the war and settles in Iowa, where he receives five letters from his brother SP in Connecticut during the 1870s. With three other items from that period. Other letters through the 1880s are from another brother, who has settled in Helena, MT, and a friend in Huron, Dakota Territory, both of whom are homesteading. Milo also moves to CT, where he receives letters about insurance and other business matters. With an 1883 letter from the Pension Office that Milo’s claim has insufficient evidence. With a printed flyer from Grand Army of the Republic Stanley Post, No 11, listing Cooley as a member of the social committee, and a printed list of men from his Civil War company also naming him.Finally, with two letters relating to the Improved Order of Red Men, of which Cooley was a member.

Fur Trade: American Fur Company Important content Autograph Letter Signed by trapper John Catron to merchant Robert Campbell in St. Louis. He explains that “Wm. H. Vanderburg the clerk of the American Fur Co. drew a Bill of Exchange on P[ierre] Chouteau Agt for said Company in favour of George Ennis for the sum of $473.50...for furs my Brother [Minatree Catron] sold to the Am.

Mr. Chouteau has refused payment and the Bill is returned protested...Ennis informs me that you had a draft or Bill...drawn by same Vanderburgh as clerk of Am Fur Co on same Chouteau for a large amount” and wants to know if Chouteau protested that, too. Vanderburgh had become one of the AFC’s top men in the Western Department, running its trapping operations with Andrew Drips. They had recently been chasing Tom Fitzpatrick of the rival Rocky Mountain Fur Co through Blackfoot country. The day after this letter was written, Vanderburgh and a handful of trappers were ambushed by about a hundred Blackfeet. He and one other man were killed. Vanderburgh’s body was never found. (photo)

Fur Trade: [Robert Campbell] Irish-born American merchant, frontiersman, and fur trader (1804-79); one of the only men to actually make money despite the rapid decline of the trade in the 1830s. Three very early letters to Campbell in St. Louis, all 1825, from business colleagues. The first, from Cape Girardeau, MO, is from James Keyte on April 30, sending goods up the Mississippi on the Phoenix. Keyte writes again on May 9, this time from Wheeling, (now WV), during a trip East. Because of low water, he will skip Pittsburgh, and will take the mail stage to Baltimore. Keyte’s instructions to Campbell about their stores suggests that he is in the position of authority. The third, from Philadelphia, is from Robert Wiley on May 25, while he is apparently being visited by Keyte, who carried the letter back to St. Louis. He reports that business is slow, and “nearly every species of merchandise has advanced in Value in consequence of which country dealers have curtailed their orders.. A few years like the present would convert the whole of you southern & western folks into nabobs...Your time is coming.” Eventually Campbell would become one of the richest men in St. Louis. All letters suffer from condition problems, but Good-VG. In 1832, Keyte would found the town that still bears his name, Keytesville, Missouri. The year 1825 would later see Campbell’s first expedition to the Rocky Mountains, in the company of the legendary Jedediah Smith of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company. [3]

Harding, Warren G Rare format Typewritten Document Signed “Warren G Harding” as President, 2 pages, folio, Washington, February 15, 1922. Harding grants “a full and unconditional pardon” to EW Poth, who was “convicted in the United States District court for the Western District of Texas of obstructing recruiting and enlistment of the military forces of the United States” during the First World War. Poth was paroled in March 1919, and the pardon is being issued “for the purpose of restoring his civil rights.” Also Signed by Attorney General “HM Daugherty.” With red Justice Department seal. Foxed, soiled, well toned, and with partial fold separations, the document is just about VG. With contemporary photocopy in negative, upon which is taped a metal Tag stamped “POTH / 74314.”. This was apparently not his prison tag, for his inmate number at Leavenworth was 12933. A most interesting form of Harding as president, priced due to condition. The most famous man convicted of a crime similar to Poth’s was Socialist leader Eugene V Debs; Harding did not pardon Debs but he did commute his sentence. (photo)

[Johnson, Andrew]: Impeachment Tickets Seventeenth President of the United States (1808-75, served 1865-69); the only southern US Senator to remain loyal to the Union during secession, he was made military governor of Tennessee; Vice President under Abraham Lincoln, succeeding upon his assassination; the first president to be impeached, he was acquitted by a single vote. Uncommon and desirable pair of printed Tickets to Johnson’s impeachment. One is yellow with black type, 3” x 5”, with an unused space for the attendee’s name, and admits him to the US Capitol building on March 13, 1868 - the day on which the impeachment trial was to begin. However, President Johnson’s defense team asked for an extension to finish gathering witnesses, and the proceedings were postponed for ten days. The other ticket, 2.9” x 3.5”, orange with green type, admits the bearer to the Senate gallery on April 2 (during the presntation of the prosecution’s case), and includes a detached matching stub stamped “471.” Both bear the printed signature of George F Brown, the Senate’s sergeant-at-arms, and are printed by “Philp & Solomons, Washn.” March ticket with uneven edges, some surface soiling and scuffs; April ticket with small notch in bottom edge and minor loss of surface at top left of stub; otherwise both VF. After President Lincoln’s murder, a power struggle emerged in the White House between Johnson and Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. The Radical Republican US Congress passed the Tenure of Office Act specifically to prevent Johnson from removing Stanton from the cabinet. The President believed this was unconstitutional and sacked the Secretary of War, leading to his impeachment for violating the Act. [3] (photo)

Lafayette, Marie-Joseph Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de French soldier and patriot (1757-1834); volunteered to assist in the American Revolution and was given a general’s commission (without pay), but due to his youth, he began as an aide to General Washington, who became his mentor; after proving himself in battle, he received his own command; present at the British surrender at Yorktown; involved also in the French Revolution, where he became the voice of the moderates, but was ultimately imprisoned by royalists; freed after a few years, he remained a voice of reason and freedom in France, returning to the United States for a hero’s welcome in 1824. Intriguing and possibly important Autograph Letter Signed “Lafayette,” 1 page, small 4to, Paris, March 13, 1824. He writes to Madame Chauvet, at whose trial for treason he had been called as a witness a month earlier. The woman’s husband had been convicted and sentenced to death as part of a failed plot to foment a popular rebellion against the restored Bourbons in Saumur in 1822. He had fled to England, and in early 1824, his wife returned from a visit to him bearing letters from him and other exiles for various friends in France. The letter to Lafayette said only that Madame Chauvet would communicate the message to him in person. The letters were discovered, and though the administration hoped to initiate charges of treason against Lafayette, they had to settle for calling him to testify. When the court addressed the popular hero as the Marquis de Lafayette, he famously objected that he had renounced his noble title in the Revolution and would not answer to it. His testimony gave no help to the prosecution, and Madame Chauvet was acquitted. Lafayette pens, “Your letter found me in an electoral campaign in the Seine-et-Marne department [where he was a member of the Chamber of Deputies]. I was very touched by how much you valued my support...Your reuinion with your friends and family must have been heartwarming after your long imprisonment and the gross injustice you were the object of. The manner in which you held yourself under this persecution could only have made you more precious to those that know you...I understand how difficult the absence of Mr. Chauvet must be and hope that you at least have news of his situation in exile. I am writing to Mr. [Duer?] to ask him for a meeting and I am anxious to tell him of your recognition of his work on your behalf...” Toned, a few small closed tears, fold wear including tiny holes at some junctions, but VG. In just a few months, Lafayette would begin his triumphant final visit to the United States. If his mention here is indeed of a Mr. Duer, it was no doubt one of the two prominent jurists who were sons of his late American friend William Duer, who may have sought to offer asylum to the Chauvets. A most interesting letter, worthy of further research. (photo)

Late date Manuscript Document Signed “Louis” as King, in French, 1/2 page, folio, Paris, April 19, 1791. After his family’s 1789 displacement from the palace at Versailles, he orders in virtual imprisonment at the Tuilleries that the paymaster general of the civil list “Pay to Mr. Leger, surgeon in ordinary to the Queen the sum of one hundred fifty pounds as a supplement to his salary for the first six months of 1971, his yearly salary being 300 pounds.” Louis has written “Eighty” in his own hand after his signature, possibly to reduce the sum so that the balance could be added to the secret fund drawn from his civil list to finance the restoration of the regular monarchy. Countersigned below by Arnault “Laporte,” who helped the royal family secret the money, and would also assist in their attempted escape from Tuilleries just two months after the date of this document.

Napoleon I Emperor of the French (1769-1821, ruled 1804-14, 1815); at his peak, controlled nearly all of continental Europe. Choice Manuscript Document Signed “Bonaparte” as First Consul, 2-1/3 pages, 4to, on stationery engraved with vignette of snake, fasces, book, etc, and the words “Liberte. Egalite,” Paris, 26 pluviose, year 10 (February 18, 1802). He signs a brief note on a request from Senator Lamartilliere for the discharge of former artillery officer, Citizen Laporte-d’anglefort, who was previously referred to Napoleon by Vice Admiral Villaret, but has not received the discharge. Lamartilliere testifies to the officer’s “extreme honesty, his exemplary morality, especially the tenderness of his character...and...his inviolable attachment to the present government, and to you personally.” Napoleon directs that the request be referred “to the Minister of Police to prepare a report for me.” Seal hole at left fold repaired with opaque archival tape, a few original ink spots, otherwise VG. Senator Jean Fabre LaMartilliere had been commander-in-chief of the French artillery, and served as vice president of the Senate. A Count Laporte d’Anglefort had been among the first hot-air balloon enthusiasts in the 1780s, flying with and is described as a lieutenant-colonel. Possibly he is the old soldier discussed in this document, which would explain why LaMartilliere stresses the former noble’s loyalty to the revolutionary government, and why Napoleon’s refers the matter to the police rather than to the Minister of War. In 1802, an uneasy peace had settled over Europe, but it was just one of many pauses in the century-old power struggle between France and Britain, and war would resume in 1803. (photo)

Nautical: Ship’s Log Fascinating Manuscript Ship’s Log for the ship Martha sailing from Guangzhou (Canton), China to Boston, January-May 1834, 4to, 111 pages, half calf. Presumably written by famed Captain Philip Dumaresq, who helmed the Martha during this period. It begins: “Wednesday Jan’y 15th 1834. At 8 AM weighed anchor at Whampoa [Huangpu District] - Made all sail down the [Pearl] River to a moderate Brise from the Eastward...” He hopes to reach Boston by May 1, matching a previous record. The book contains the usual course headings, barometer readings, and mileage, and also accounts of numerous gale winds that harry the boat on its journey, including off of Cape St Francis on the southern African coast. A crewman named Francis Haslet causes difficulties and is given “two dozen with a piece of 6 thread rattling for insolence to the Chief Officer...After breakfast Francis Haslit refused to work. Put him in irons...” A day later, Francis is released after promising to work. A few days later, Dumaresq reports that “Samuel Miller fell from the Fore Top & broke his arm above the Elbow & otherwised bruised himself. Bled him set the arm & took him into the Cabin.” Less than ten days later, Samuel is out of bandages, raising questions about the captain’s diagnosis. Seventy days out, they sight a ship and “loaded all the Guns, got the boarding Pikes in readiness & prepare to battle...should it turn out a Pirate or any one that should be desired to give us trouble.” After the captain orders a very showy call to the crew to come on deck, the mystery ship “immediately pulled away, hoisted his flying jibs & quietly sneaked off, just before we got within hail...” The ship reaches Boston on May 7, losing just five days off its best time as a result of the storms and excitement. Several pages torn out at back of book. Rubbed, with well rubbed boards and spine, some leather loss at spine ends, shaken, about VG. With fine quarter morocco slipcase. (photo)

Peabody, George American-British financier and philanthropist (1795-1869); a cotton trader, he established what would later become JP Morgan Chase; endowed colleges, museums, and libraries, becoming “the father of American philanthropy.” Pair of Autograph Letters Signed “Geo Peabody,” each 2 pages, 8vo, Georgetown, MA, December 1856 and May 1866. Both are to John S Wright of Boston, the first saying that after Peabody’s illness “the complaint is removed and I have nearly recovered my usual strength...” He also must decline the offer of a place to stay during his visit because he has refused all others. In the second, during his last visit to his country of birth, he notes that Wright is “my OLDEST acquaintance in Boston, ourfirst meeting in Vermont having occurred 60 years ago!” Both letters VG/F. The two men were old friends indeed, having met when Peabody was just ten or eleven years old! As the financier had settled in London in 1837, later letters written in the United States are especially uncommon. [2] (photo)

Rosenberg Spy Case: Sobell and Meeropol Unusual group of Typewritten Letters Signed, 1972-74, all to collector Dr David Marcus of Palm Springs, CA, by men associated with the case of convicted spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were found guilty of stealing secrets of the atomic bomb for the Soviet Union. The Rosenbergs were sentenced to death and executed in 1953. The verdict, especially in the case of Ethel Rosenberg, was and remains controversial. The earliest is by songwriter and poet “Abel Meeropol” (1903-86), 1-1/4 pages, 8vo, South Miami, FL, January 15, 1974. Meeropol, best known for his poem “Strange Fruit,” which became the basis for the song, had adopted Michael and Robert Rosenberg after their parents’ execution in 1953. He encloses (not present) “some material...regarding the Rosenberg case...Also...a statement regarding the substance of the suit against Louis Nizer [who had written a book supporting the Rosenbergs’ guilt] which the attorney for my sons, Michael and Robert...has made available...There is a paper-back book about the frame-up of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg...entitled INVITATION TO AN INQUEST...” A few days later he sends a brief three-line letter, signed this time as “Lewis Allen,” his pen name, with an enclosure (not present) regarding the lawsuit. With two letters signed “MS” by Morton Sobell (born 1917), who was convicted along with the Rosenbergs but received a 30-year sentence rather than the death penalty. He tells Dr Marcus that he cannot send his autograph, for he considers “autograph collecting infantile.” In one of the letters, he adds, “I am sorry that you cannot see the difference between autographing one’s work and autographing an empty piece of paper.” In very recent years, Sobell has admitted to being a Soviet spy and has made it clear that Julius Rosenberg was also guilty; Ethel’s level of involvement remains uncertain.

Well before the advent of entertainment broadcasts, radio technology was used for wireless telegraphy, especially aboard ships that had no other means of communication beyond the line of sight. As a state-of-the-art liner, the Titanic had a powerful wireless telegraph aboard, whose operators transmitted the news of her sinking to other ships. The news was then relayed back to the United States and around the world. Most people got the news of the sinking through the next morning's newspaper, but there were some people who got their news delivered to their offices and homes through news broadcasts sent over a ticker tape machine network. Fortunately, one individual recognized the importance of the disaster, and saved a reel of tape from that historic day.

But my friends here advise me to delay giving an answer to this offer until I can see further the probable result of their plan” which could mean making $3-4000.

I gave my consent, conditioned that it should be engraved IN THE BEST STYLE, that the Impressions should be bound with the proposed Annual, AND SOLD IN NO OTHER WAY...Mr Huntington has played me a most vile yankee trick; firs, the plate was engraved by men unknown to me as artists, MOST CONTEMPTIBLY: and now I am told that Mr Huntington has ceded the plate to the Engravers Messrs Illman & Pitbrow, and they are printing & selling impressions...Now my dear Sir this is a base violation of my Copy right” and has caused difficulty in selling prints from a much better plate in Trumbull’s possession.

I immediately repair’d to the Point - with the Brass 6 Pounder & 6 or 8...artillery men to act with the guard stationed on the point...I had a consultation with the officer of Capt Ingraham’s militia Company at Say Brook & recommended the calling out of his company & a number of volunteers paraded on the Point in force. Prior to this some of the Inhabitants...had prematuresly sent to Petty Paug [now Essex, CT] to notify Capt Southard & Jewett & the companies under their command...I had made the ncessary arrangements with Capt Ingraham’s company & the voluntiers to put them in the best Possible Position of Defence...Capt Jewett on his arrival immediately claimed the sole command both of Capt Ingraham & myself & the men under our command...I remarked that I thought an improper time for officers to contend - when the Enemy was at our Door - but as your Excellency had appointed me to the COMMAND of THIS post & the force stationed here - I considered myself on my own ground...” Jewett went further, commandeering the six-pounder artillery piece and the men to fire it, and Bray asks the governor to decide the matter. With ALS “John Cotton Smith,” 1 page, 4to, September 19, 1814, forwarding the letter to Brig Gen Nathaniel Terry of the militia for his investigation. First letter with fold wear, both toned, VG. The United Kingdom attempted to blockade the Atlantic coast during the War of 1812. At first, ships from New England were ignored as they formed an important part of British commerce, and the move helped fuel the region’s opposition to the war.

War of 1812: The Hartford Convention Exceptional pair of letters concerning the event, at which representatives of the New England states met in Hartford in December 1814-January 1815 to discuss the War of 1812, which nearly all of them opposed, and purportedly also to consider secession and a separate peace with the United Kingdom. Autograph Letter Signed by US Senator from Massachusetts “George Cabot” as president of the convention, 1 page, 4to, Hartfor, December 23, 1814. He writes to Nathaniel Terry chairman of the Committee of Arrangements that “The invitation from the Gentlemen of Hartford to the honor of a public dinner has been received by the members of the Convention as a mark of respect...It is with extreme regret that they have concluded that considering the nature & circumstances of the occasion of their meeting they are obliged to deny themselves” the pleasure. Toned at sides, VG. With ALS “John Cotton Smith” as Governor of Connecticut, 1 page, oblong 8vo, Council Chamber, (Hartford), February 2, 1815. He writes state representative Nathaniel Terry, informing that he has appointed him “a commissioner, to form an arrangement with the National Government relative to the defence of the State, pursuant to a resolution of the General Assemly...” Seal hole in address leaf, VG/F. There is some doubt among scholars whether secession was ever a real goal of the convention, but it did petition for changes to the US Constitution that would limit the power of the South by removing the 3/5 representation for slaves, limiting presidents to one term, and requiring successive presidents to be from different states. These were considered bases for negotiation between the New England states and the federal government, and it is likely that Terry was being sent (as delegates from Massachusetts were at the same time) to make those negotiations. However, news soon came of Andrew Jackson’s victory at New Orleans, and then of the Treaty of Ghent ending the war, making the entire matter a political embarrassment for the region. [2] (photo)

Whitney, Eli American inventor (1765-1825); invented the cotton gin, greatly improving the profitability of cotton - and slavery; championed interchangeable parts, crucial to the American Industrial Revolution. Interesting content Autograph Letter Signed “Eli Whitney,” 2 pages, 4to, New Haven, [CT], October 2, 1803. He writes Nathaniel Terry of Hartford about unexplained business in South Carolina, for which he unenthusiastically recommends “Mr. D.S. is not a man of much visible property - he does much business in his own profession & lives up to his income - he is a Federalist, has an air of haughtiness in his manner & is, I suspect, obnoxious to the present ruling party [i.e., the Democratic-Republicans under Thomas Jefferson]...I cannot, however, point out to you a better man in that country, but you must observe that my acquaintance in Charleston is...superficial...” Autograph integral address page. In VG condition. Whitney was associated with Connecticut Federalist James Hillhouse, but was careful to maintain good relations with both major parties, as he relied heavily on government contracts for his arms manufacturing. At the time of this letter, he was still waiting for his 1794 cotton gin patent to be validated; because the device was so easily copied, he would never see great profits from it. (photo)

Formed in 1711, the South Sea Company had a monopoly on British trade with Spain’s South American colonies, and also purchased (with shares) a large portion of Britain’s national debt.

After shares reached a top price of 1000 pounds, the bubble burst in 1720, ruining thousands of investors. The company was then reorganized and for some years was also very active in the slave trade; it would continue to manage the public debt for another century. (photo) Est. 750-1,000

Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd, 18 shares, Walkerville (now Windsor), Ontario, 1906, #94, signed by Henry Ford as president, black, red paper seal, manuscript transfer on verso, light red pen cancel not affecting signature, stub reattached left, about VF+. Henry Ford (1863-1947) revolutionized manufacturing with his large-scale assembly line system, and was the foremost auto-maker of his time. Initially controlled by a small group of investors, by 1906, Ford Company of Michigan and its partner across the Detroit River, Ford Motor Company of Canada, were both under Henry Ford’s personal control. Ford quickly adopted a strategy that would lead to one of the greatest manufacturing successes of all time: the Model T. While other automotive pioneers wanted to offer highly diversified product lines and sell more expensive cars, Henry Ford strove to develop a single model that could be manufactured efficiently and sold at a price that everyone could afford. Ford’s theory worked brilliantly, right up to the early 1920s. Only 16 of these certificates are known, and to the best of our knowledge, there are no early Ford Motor Company of Michigan certificates available outside of the Henry Ford Museum Collection - making this a rare opportunity to collect the ultimate signed automotive stock!

Fashion Company [Vogue Magazine], (WV), $100 shs, capital stock, 1895, #216, signed by Arthur B Turnure as president and HW McVickar as treasurer and issued to Fannie McVickar, vinette (designed by McVickar) of a beautiful woman, hat at top, fashionable canes, black and yellow, fold wear, about VF+. The Fashion Company was founded by Arthur Turnure to publish his magazine, Vogue, which started publication in 1892. HW McVickar, in addition to being company treasurer, was the magazine’s art director. Originally a weekly that focused on fashion and society news for both men and women, it soon became known chiefly as a woman’s fashion magazine, even incorporating dress patterns. After Turnure’s death in 1906, it was acquired by Conde Nast, who changed it to a biweekly and expanded its publication internationally. Nast oversaw the magazine’s growth into the premiere arbiter of American fashion (and similar roles for its French, Italian, and British versions). Guided by editors as diverse as Frank Crowninshield, Diane Vreeland, and Anna Wintour, Vogue has thrived over the past century by embodying the best in high fashion while adapting itself to changing times. The Fashion Company stock certificates are exceedingly rare; this is one of only two known to exist. (photo) Est. 15,000-20,000

North American Land Co (PA), Ten $6 shs, Philadelphia, 1795, #19, signed by Robert Morris as president and James Marshall as secretary, counterfoil at left, on laid paper, uncanceled, matted in brown and gold, good VF+. North American Land speculated on and developed lands given by a grateful Congress to Robert Morris, who had helped finance the Revolution. With more than 4 million acres throughout the 13 states, the company represented the epitome of the “Eastern land-jobbers” who sought to make ready fortunes from westward expansion. However, because the company’s revenue could not cover its own loans and taxes, it failed in 1798. Morris was ruined and the “financier of the American Revolution” and signer of the Declaration of Independence found himself in debtor’s prison. (photo) Est. 600-800

In 1890, gold was discovered in the Cripple Creek valley of Colorado, setting off one of the great gold rushes, one that would see the town’s population balloon from 500 to 10,000 in three years. A strike in 1894 turned violent; another in 1903 led to a labor war that raged on and off for four years. But the gold would be harvested, and still is. In all, the region has produced over 23 million troy ounces of gold. 1831
