Coins for the discriminating numismatist 

Rare Coin Review No. 18 Aug.-Sept 1973 

The Ray Collection 

Recently we’ve added hundreds of thousands of 
dollars worth of choice and rare United States and 
world coins to our stock. Featured in this issue of the 
Rare Coin Review are coins from the fabulous Ray 
Collection, an old-time grouping assembled many 
years ago. 

The present Review issue is the most comprehen¬ 
sive we’ve ever issued. We think you’ll find many 
really great values listed! 

Our SPECIAL OFFER this issue is an especially outstanding 
value: a beautiful Brilliant Uncirculated 1945-S wartime nickel for 
just 50c with any order of $ 10 or more from this issue of the “Rare 
Coin Review.” This is less than half of the coin’s wholesale value! 
(Reference: June 22, 1973 issue of “The Coin Dealer Newsletter” 
which states that dealers are PAYING $43 per roll of 40 pieces — or 
over $1 per coin!) The 1945-S nickel is of special interest as it is 
made of silver alloy and has the large “S” mintmark over the dome 
of Monticello. 

As the special price of 50c is way below wholesale, we make the 
following limitations: (1) Just one coin per customer. (2) Offer 
limited to the number of coins we have on hand — so order early! 
Request “1945-S Nickel Offer” when ordering and add 50c to the 
total of your order. 

The Recent Coin Market 

We have been in the rare coin field since 1953. 
Never have we seen such an intense interest in coins 
as we’ve experienced during the past several months. 
The market has been strong, and prices have been 
rising. Our past issue, Rare Coin Review No. 17, was 
obsolete within a month or so of its release. Virtually 
every participant in our popular Collection/Invest¬ 
ment Plan can show a nice profit on his portfolio if 
he has been with the program for a year or so — 
despite the fact that “traditionally” we recommend 
that a period of several years is best to show an 
attractive appreciation in value. 

Our sale (held by the American Auction 
Association) of the Armand Champa Collection, a 
sale which took place last year (May, 1972), featured 
record-breaking prices which made headlines in major 
numismatic publications at the time. Now, a glance 
through the Champa Collection catalogue reveals 
what are incredible bargains at today’s price levels. 
Chances are good that the many price records set in 
our more recent (May, 1973) Terrell Collection sale 
will be bargains in the future as well. 

“What do you think of the coin market?” is a 
question asked of us nearly every day. “Why have 
prices risen so much during the past year?” is 
probably the second most popular question. We’ll 
answer these here. 

There is no one single factor which has made the 
coin market so strong. This is good, for it means that 
there is a certain built-in stability should one of the 
several factors weaken. Unlike past “bull markets” in 
coins, the present market is not speculative. There are 
no dealers, investors, or others who are methodically 
buying up certain issues and holding them in 
quantity. Rather, the market is broadly based and is 
comprised of many thousands of individual buyers 
who are acting independently of each other. 

‘‘Your friends in the rare coin business" 

-Page 3— 

Here are some factors which have influenced the 
strong upward movement of coin prices during recent 

(1) The market has expanded. More collectors, 
investors, and dealers have joined the numismatic 
field. As the supply of older coins remains static, the 
inevitable result is an increase in prices. Far from 
being a rich man’s hobby, numismatics is a 
democratic pastime and appeals to people from all 
walks of life. As the standard of living improves, more 
and more buyers enter the field. It is not unusual 
today for an American citizen with an average income 
to buy a motor home, power boat, or even a vacation 
cottage or home. Likewise, it is not unusual for him 
to buy a $500 or even a $5000 coin. Years ago such 
expensive pieces were usually purchased only by 
successful professional people and businessmen. 
Today the market is much broader. Added to this is 
the consideration that the standard of living is rising 
in other countries as well, resulting in a broadly-based 
demand by citizens of Japan, Germany, Britain, Italy, 
and other economically progressive lands. 

(2) Relative price levels of coins are low. Recently 
a specimen of the well-known 1918 24c stamp with 
the airplane inverted sold for $37,000. Several years 
ago a rare British Guiana stamp fetched in excess of 
$300,000, with the buyer (our friend Irwin Weinberg 
of Wilkes-Barre, Penna.) indicating he would have 
paid substantially more if necessary. In the field of 
coins $37,000 is a rarified atmosphere, and only a 
handful of coins have ever sold for more than this 
amount. There are 100 specimens known of the 
aforementioned 24c stamp. Had this stamp been a 
coin, chances are the price level would have been in 
the $5000 to $10,000 range. No modern coin of 
which about 100 pieces are known has ever sold for 
$37,000 or even remotely near it. All of this points 
out that coin prices have a great potential. 

Coins which have been valued at $50,000 to 
$100,000 within the past two years (no coin has ever 
been sold for more than $100,000, to our knowledge) 
include: 1804 silver dollar $80,000 (about 15 
known), 1907 extremely high relief $20 gold 
$100,000 (about a dozen known), 1913 Liberty 


Price of this catalogue: $2 per copy to U.S. addresses; $3 
elsewhere. A subscription to the next six issues of the Rare Coin 
Review PLUS all auction catalogues and prices realized lists issued 
by the American Auction Association during that time is: 

To U.S. addresses by surface mail: $10.00 
To foreign addresses by surface mail: $15.00 
To U.S. or foreign addresses by air mail: $25.00 
Due to the cost of producing our large illustrated catalogues we 
do not make a profit on the subscriptions. For this reason 
subscriptions are solicited only from active collectors, dealers, and 
investors — as each must “pay its way” by going to an active buyer. 

nickel $100,000 (5 known), 1894-S dime $50,000 
(fewer than 10 known), 1838-0 half dollar $75,000 
(fewer than 10 known), and the 1927-1) $20 gold 
$65,000 (fewer than a half dozen known). Clearly, 
the “rarest of the rare” in the United States coin 
series are bargains in comparison to our sister field, 
stamp collecting. 

Compare coin prices (or stamp prices too, for that 
matter) to the field of art, and the potential for price 
appreciation is even more dramatically illustrated. A 
rare painting has sold for over $5,000,000, and a 
number have broken the $1,000,000 mark. For a 
painting to sell for “just” $100,000 (the highest sale 
price ever recorded for a rare coin) would be 
humdrum news and probably would attract no 
attention at all in the art market! 

Often buyers of major coin scarcities and rarities 
are cognizant of other collecting fields as well, and 
the knowledge that coins are underpriced is not lost 
on them. Hence, there is a value concept in the coin 
market at present. Coin price levels, even taking into 
consideration recent advances, are still very low on a 
relative basis. 

(3) Favorable comparison of coin investment to 
other investment fields. Investment in choice and rare 
United States coins and coins of the world has been 
extremely rewarding to those who have participated 
over the years. Many investors have been disillusioned 
with the securities market, real estate, and other 
fields and have turned to coins. Indeed, compared to 
popular statistics and averages in other fields, coins 
have done spectacularly well. 

This has caused many people to consider coins as 
an investment per se (as opposed to the historical and 
hobby aspects of coin collecting). We have always 
recommended that coin buyers become involved with 
the numismatic aspects of coins and take the time to 
learn about them, but the fact remains that there are 
many buyers who are investing solely for the sake of 
investment. Undoubtedly they will do well, especially 
if they buy from a reputable, experienced numismatic 
firm. Undoubtedly they will do very well if they both 
learn about coins and buy from a reputable, 
experienced numismatic firm. 

Profit-sharing programs and pension firms are 
beginning to realize the investment potential of coins. 
Business Week, to mention just one of many 
publications, has had very favorable articles on coin 
investment in recent months. The investment aspect 
of coins is attracting the attention of money 
managers and investment counselors all over the 

(4) Inflation. Inflation seems to be a fact of life in 
America and in many other countries as well. Choice 

—Page 4— 

and rare coins have consistently outpaced inflation 
and have been a superb hedge against it. 

(5) The international aspect. America is no longer 
an isolated country. When we went to Europe in the 
early 1960’s it was an exciting event for the fellow 
dealers and collectors we visited there. Now travel 
around the world is commonplace. What goes on in 
the coin market in London or Zurich is followed with 
avid interest. No longer is the situation remote. 
Indeed, the Swiss banking system has been more in 
the news during the past year than has the American 
banking system! 

The market for coins is tridy international. We 
don’t mean that American citizens buy American 
coins, British subjects buy British coins, and Germans 
buy German coins. Rather, Americans avidly collect 
coins from all countries, and citizens of other 
countries do likewise. One of the major buyers for 
American silver dollars in the recent Terrell 
Collection sale was a leading dealer from Japan. 
Recently we sold a major California territorial gold 
rarity to a dealer in Germany and a large group of 
U.S. commemorative half dollars to a dealer in Italy. 

The collector or investor buying United States 
coins or coins of the world has a truly international 
demand for his coins when the time comes to sell 
them. Devaluations of the U.S. dollar, which have 
happened several times in the past year, have just 
increased the demand more. 

(6) Limited availability. Rare coins are just that: 
they are rare. As we noted earlier in this discussion, 

the supply of older rare coins is static, and as the 
demand increases, the prices increase also. 

Buyers are now becoming more educated and the 
coin market is ridding itself of vendors of 
misdescribed and counterfeit coins. Two years ago it 
was possible, for example, to have a most peculiar 
situation: Reputable dealers (such as members of the 
Professional Numismatists Guild and/or the Interna¬ 
tional Association of Professional Numismatists) 
would advertise, for example, an Uncirculated coin in 
the $150 range, or an example of the same coin 
would bring $150 at auction. Allowing for normal 
variances in the coin market and for individual 
pricing, the same piece might be offered by different 
PNG or IAPN members for, say, $145, $149, $150, 
and $155. At the same time a similar coin might be 
advertised for sale by an unethical dealer for, say, 
$60, with the come-on of “why pay more?” In the 
coin field, just as in other walks of life, you get 
exactly what you pay for. “There is no Santa Claus in 
numismatics,” Lee Hewitt, well-known publisher, has 
said many times. How is it possible that a $150 coin 
could be advertised for $60? The “secret” was that 
certain “dealers” (we use the term loosely here) were 
selling “whizzed” or “processed” lower grade coins as 
“Uncirculated” or even “gem Uncirculated.” The 
American Numismatic Association met the problem 
head-on last year and declared that any ANA member 
who engaged in such practices would be expelled. As 
a result, the problem of “processing” has dwindled. It 
is still not solved completely, but the problem is only 
a fraction of what it once was.

What does all of this have to do with coin 
investment.' Well, according to Gresham’s well-known 
law, the bad drives out the good. In the instance of 
our $150 coin, the buyer of this coin might hesitate, 
or at the very least feel “uncomfortable” about 
buying it, if he saw another advertised for just $60. 
After all, it would be foolish to pay $150 for a $60 
coin. This had a dampening effect on the upward rise 
of prices. 

Also the “processing” of coins distorted the supply 
situation. Many coins are extremely rare in higher 
grades. If three out of five “Brilliant Uncirculated” 
Barber half dollars advertised were really “processed” 
lower-grade coins, then the supply of BU pieces 
would ostensibly be larger than it really is. The 
supply of “BU” pieces increased as the processors 
took EF and AU pieces and treated them. The 
demand for BU pieces was increasing, but the supply 
was also! 

Now that the “processors” of coins have largely 
been put out of business, or at least their activities 
have been exposed, the true rarity of certain coins is 
becoming realized — and this has had an uplifting 
effect on coin prices. 

(7) Sentimental and artistic considerations. The 
trend toward collecting all sorts of antique things is 
growing. The field of collectibles is experiencing a 
great increase in interest. Coins are historically 
significant and are very fascinating to collect. It is 
easy to become involved with the history of a coin. 
Indeed, at Bowers and Ruddy Galleries we have 
always encouraged our customers to learn about coin 
history — for these pieces have many tales to tell. As 
you know, our sale catalogues are oriented toward 
making coin collecting and investment interesting as 
well as profitable for you. As a field for collecting 
enjoyment, coins have a lot to offer. They can be 
stored conveniently in a small space, can be easily 
studied, and information about them can be 
exchanged with fellow collectors all over the world. 
Investment aspects aside, the collecting of coins is an 
absolutely fascinating pursuit. To the intelligent and 
inquisitive mind numismatics offers a great reward. 

(8) There are many other considerations as well. In 
fact, we’re now writing a book on the subject of coins 
as an investment, and we go into many interesting 
sidelights on the subject. The appeal of gold metal 
throughout the history of mankind and the historic 
value of silver have added to tin; desirability of coins 

made of those metals. The fact that coins can be 
collected privately without government intervention 
and without one’s neighbors knowing the value of 
one’s holdings is another factor. And we could list 
many, many more. 

As leading dealers in the coin field we’ve known 
for a long time the value of coins as an investment, 
and many of our clients over the years have 
made tremendous profits by buying from us. Now 
that countless thousands of new collectors and 
investors are coming into the field, the rewards which 
have been possible in the past should continue, but 
perhaps with even more vigor. 

Some Investment Guidelines 

In our last issue we editorialized a bit on coin 
investment, so we won’t cover the same ground here 
again. We will, however, repeat three guidelines which 
we think will contribute to your investment success: 

1. Learn as much as you can about coins. The more 
you know about coins, the greater are your chances 
for success in the coin market. Think of coins not 
only as a monetary investment but as an investment 
in history and pleasure as well. Coins afford great 
pleasure of ownership and pride of possession. Take 
maximum advantage of this and enjoy your coins. 

2. Buy the best quality you can afford. If possible, 
try to formulate your budget plans before making any 
major purchases. If you eventually want, for example, 
a collection of Indian cents in Extremely Fine grade, 
it is more economical to start out by buying five or 
ten EF pieces than by buying several dozen Good or 
Very Good coins and replacing them later. 

3. Do business with an established dealer; a dealer 
such as ourselves. In this way you can be sure of 
obtaining the quality and value you pay for. In this 
way you can be sure of guaranteed authenticity. 
Compare both price and quality when making a 
purchase decision. Quality is never cheap, but 
attention to quality pays for itself when the time 
comes for you to sell your collection. 

Highlights of This Issue 

This issue of the Rare Coin Review contains many 
choice, rare, and beautiful coins — not to mention 
countless inexpensive pieces. You’ll find major 
rarities such as cents and half cents of 1793, the 1796 
quarter in several grades, the elusive 1797 half dollar, 
the highly prized 1895 Proof Morgan dollar, the 
exceedingly rare 1817/4 and 1838-0 half dollars, a 
splendid 1861-S Paquet double eagle, and many 
others. You’ll also find many pieces priced from 
under $1 (our Special Offer of a 1945-S BU nickel for 
just 50c, for example) to $ 100 or so. 

—Page 6— 

Our Miscellany” section, always interesting and 
value filled, is even more extensive than usual — for as 
we were ready to go to press with this issue we 
acquried a large group of scarce pieces which we 
include there. 

Coins of the world are divided into three sections: 
general coins of the world, including minor issues, 
crowns, patterns, and other pieces of interest; gold 
coins of the world; and Proof sets of the world. 

Our world coins section, nearly a complete sellout 
in our last issue, is even larger and better this time! 
There are many, many scarcities and rarities to 
choose from. The market for world coins is very 
active — and, as might be expected when coins are 
priced attractively, most of our larger orders have 
gone to other dealers. So, if you’re a dealer, you’ll 
find many great buys. If you’re a collector, the values 
will be proportionately even better! 

If the investment aspects of coins interest you 
most, then be sure to read all about our Collection 
Investment Plan. This is an easy way to build a choice 
and meaningful group of rare coins with emphasis on 
price appreciation in coming years. 

We hope you’ll enjoy some of the editorial features 
in this Review issue. Well-known numismatic 
authority Maurice M. Gould has written for us an 
article about United States colonial coins. An article 
about Q. David Bowers, originally from the “Who’s 
Who in the Hobby” feature of Numismatic News, is 
presented, as is a report on the Terrell Collection 
Auction sale. 

A Few More Words 

If you are an old timer with us (and there are many 
Rare Coin Review readers who have been doing 
business with us since we started buying and selling 
rare coins back in 1953!), ^ou know the quality to 
expect. If you’re new to our family of customers 
and if this is your first issue of the Review, then a few 
comments may be of interest: 

The rare coin business is one of the most 
competitive fields there is. No one, yourself included, 
has to order from us — there are thousands of other 
dealers with coins for sale. And yet our business 
grows steadily year after year. We have built what we 
believe is the world’s largest and finest inventory of 
rare early United States coins and are working 
towards building one of the finest stocks of world 
coins as well. 

What is the secret of our success? The answer is 
quite simple: we deliver what we consider to be the 
best QUALITY and VALUE in the coin field today - 
and, importantly, our customers agree! When you 
compare price, compare true quality as well. We 

invite you to do some “comparison shopping” on 
your own — and we’re confident that we will emerge 
as the winner! 

The professional experience of James F. Ruddy, 
Nancy Ruddy, Q. David Bowers, John Murbach, Karl 
Stephens, Jr., Judy Cahn, and the other numismatists 
on our large staff is your guarantee of quality. You’ll 
like our service, too. All coins ordered from this 
Review will be sent to you postpaid to U.S.A. 
addresses, and for a nominal fee to overseas addresses. 

Any item may be easily reserved by telephone if 
you wish. For an order for $200 or more, telephone 
us collect from anywhere in the U.S.A. For an order 
of U.S. coins ask for Nancy Ruddy or Judy Moran; 
for coins of the world ask for Karl Stephens, Jr. or 
Judy Cahn. 

Selections from the Ray Collection plus other 
important new purchases added to our stock await 
your consideration. Check this issue carefully and 
pick out those Special Pieces that will be just right for 
your collection. We look forward to hearing from you 
by telephone or letter soon!

American Plantations Tokens 

(1688) American Plantations token. Restrike (the variety usually seen; 
the variety illustrated on p.49 of the Guide Book) with head under 
and slightly to the left of the B in BRI. Struck during the early 19th 
century. Extremely rare, for these were struck in tin metal which 
corroded rapidly. We offer two pieces: VF-EF $239.00; AU, sharp. 
Acquired by us as part of a beautiful collection of American 
colonials purchased intact in April, 1973. This beautiful piece is one 
of the very finest to come on the market within the past decade. 

Telephone us to reserve it! ... 395.00 

Elephant Tokens 

(1694) Elephant token. Thick planchet. GOD PRESERVE LONDON 
legend. Interesting and popular issue. The elephant was a popular 
animal during the 17th to 19th centuries, and the exhibition of one 
of these always caused great excitement. The use of this ponderous 
beast as the motif of this coin undoubtedly aided in its popularity. 
Very Good $69.00; Fine $79.00; VF-EF $129.00; Extremely Fine 
$239.00; EF-AU $269.00; AU, rarely seen or offered for sale in such 
choice condition. $349.00; Lustrous brown Uncirculated. A prime 
rarity in this grade. The importance of colonials in better grades (VF, 
EF, AU, and, rarely, Uncirculated) cannot be overemphasized. Very 
few of these better-grade pieces exist in proportion to lower-grade 
specimens. This present listing offers a remarkable opportunity to 
acquire some very choice early colonial coins. This Uncirculated 
Elephant token:. 495.00

“Doing business with Bowers and Ruddy Galleries has been a 
wonderful experience. I am used to having to be careful as I go 
along and to ‘fight my way’ in order to get at least a reasonable

misleading advice depending upon what a particular dealer has for 
sale. With Bowers and Ruddy Galleries this is not so. Your firm is 
wonderfully different; a numismatic dream come true. I can readily 
see why you have been so successful over the years and why you 
will be successful in years to come. If you treat your other

Copper Coins of Vermont 

We present an attractive selection of Vermont Copper coins. All 
pieces are attributed to Richardson/Ryder numbers. The Richardson 
monograph. The Copper Coins of Vermont, is available from us for $1 
postpaid. This booklet is quite interesting, and it is an excellent way to 
gain familiarity with the coins of the Green Mountain state. 

Vermont pieces are among the most fascinating of all state coins. 
There are enough major varieties—the sun-over-mountains design with 
variations, the Baby Head, and the curious BRITANNIA are 
examples—to make an interesting type set. A synopsis of Vermont 
pieces can be found on pp. 22-24 of A Guide Book of U.S. Coins. 

We are always interested in purchasing Vermont coins for our own 
stock, so please keep us in mind in this respect. 

1785 Vermont. Ryder-2. Sun-over-mountains design with VERMONTS 
spelling. Abt. Good $29.00; G-VG $69.00; Very Good $109.00; Fine

rare in this even higher grade. 575.00

features $99.00; G-VG .139.00 

1786 Vermont. Ryder-11. Bust left variety. Abt. Good $29.00; Very 

Good $99.00; Fine, rough planchet (as usual for Ryder 11; 95% of 
all known specimens are struck on flaked, striated, or otherwise less 
than perfect planchets) .159.00 

1787 Vermont. Ryder-12. Bust right. Fine .79.50 

1787 Vermont. Ryder-13. The curious and interesting BRITANNIA 
variety. This coin, struck at Capt. Thomas Machin’s private mint on 
the shores of Orange Pond, near Newburgh, N.Y., bears a Vermont 
design for the obverse. The reverse is from a worn discarded die used 
to make a counterfeit British halfpenny (making imitation British 
coins was apparently the main activity of the Machin mint). The two 
dies were apparently inadvertently combined to produce the illogical 
Vermont/BRITANNIA issue. Good $22.00; Very Good $39.00; Fine 
$69.00; VF-EF (note: grading is always by the obverse only on R-13, 
for the reverse is nearly smooth on all—due to the original use of a 
very worn die) $149.00; Extremely Fine Rare in this grade. 349.00 

1787 Vermont. Ryder-14. Bust right. Abt. Good $15.00; VF. .. 99.00 

1788 Vermont. Ryder-16. Bust right. Good, planchet defect $16.00;

colonial issues .99.00

weak striking and with angular die break from rim, across forehead,

collection of Ted Craige .185.00 

1788 Vermont. Ryder-31. GEORGIVS III obverse. Reverse with cross 
after INDE+ and LIB+. Obverse is attractive Very Fine grade. 
Reverse is Good. This disparity in grading is usual and is due to the 
difference in relief and die detail originally possessed by the dies. The 
obverse die is in deep relief; the reverse weak at the center and in 
shallow relief. A prize specimen of Ryder-31; one of the finest we 
have seen or owned .495.00

In our Rare Coin Review No. 15 we offered Connecticut copper 
coins by die varieties attributed to dies classified by Henry Miller’s 
State Coinage of Connecticut. For an introduction to Connecticut 
pieces and a more detailed description of them we refer you to that 
Review issue, a copy of which we can supply for $2 postpaid. If you’re 
presently interested in Connecticut cents and have made a start toward 
collecting them, then we recommend our specialized listing in Review 
No. 15 to you. Many, many pieces in that listing have been sold, so be 
sure to include ample extra choices! 

If you’re interested in Connecticut copper coins and don’t own any 
yet and would like to start, then we present a plan which has been very, 
very popular: 

Connecticut Starter Sets 

Send us $100, $250, $500, or $1000 and we will pick out a Starter 
Set for you. We’ll give you a really good deal: we will pick out an 
interesting array of Connecticut cents, including at least one from each 
of the four years in which Connecticuts were minted: 1785, 1786, 
1787, and 1788 — and we ll give you a 20% discount from our regular 
price! In other words, if you send us $100 you will receive at least $125 
worth of coins, if you send us $250 you’ll get at least $300 worth, and 
so on proportionately. 

And, as a bonus we’ll include free of charge a copy of the previously 
mentioned Rare Coin Review No. 15 (a $2 value) on request. Please 
request this specifically, for if you already have one it would be 
redundant to send you another—especially when our supply of these 
issues is quite limited. 

GUARANTEE: The Starter Set offer is covered by our usual 
money-back guarantee: if you are not 100% delighted with the coins 
received, just return them within a week of receipt and we’ll send you 
an instant cash refund in full. If you don’t find the pieces to be 
fascinating or if they fail to please you for some other reason, return 
the coins and we’ll both forget about the whole thing! So, you aren’t 
taking a chance at all! 

On the other hand, your shipment of Connecticut cents may well 
open a new collecting door for you. You may find the series exciting 
and a lot of fun to study and collect. If so, we’ve accomplished our 
purpose. As a matter of interest we mention that Robert Vlack, 
prominent authority in the colonial field and author of the well-known 
Early American Coins book, began his interest in colonials by ordering 
a starter set of Connecticut coins from us fifteen to twenty years ago! 

Each starter set will be personally selected by James F. Ruddy and 
Q. David Bowers of our staff. Take your pick of one of these sets and 

send us your order today: 

Connecticut Starter Set No. 1 (value $125.00+) .$100.00 

Connecticut Starter Set No. 2 (value $300.00+) -. 250.00 

Connecticut Starter Set No. 3 (value $600.00+). 500.00 

Connecticut Starter Set No. 4 (value $1200.00+). 1000.00 

Connecticut Starter Set No. 5 (value $3000.00+). 2500.00 

Of course, the larger starter sets will contain many specialized die 
varieties in addition to the major design types. 

Consider collecting Connecticut copper coins! These pieces are 
interesting to collect and are quite inexpensive in comparison to many 
later United States issues. A general description of Connecticut coins 
begins on page 27 of the Guide Book of U.S. Coins. 

There are several ways to collect Connecticut coins. Perhaps the most 
basic is to form a type set — a set which contains one each ot the

Connecticut Copper Coins by Die Varieties 
For the advanced collector we offer die varieties of Connecticut 
cents attributed to Miller numbers as listed in his State Coinage of 
Connecticut. Due to our space requirements the present listing includes 
only rare die varieties or pieces in higher grades; it is a listing of pieces 
in our stock valued at over $100 each. We have a really fine stock of 
other Connecticut cents priced in the $10 to $100 range, and we 
recommend that you consult our earlier Rare Coin Review No. 15 for a 
listing of these. Of course, many of these earlier-listed pieces have been 
sold, so send a listing of second and third choices when ordering. 

As a matter of possible interest we mention that 75% of the 
Connecticut copper coins listed in our last Review issue (No. 17) went 
to dealers buying for resale. A strong market in colonial coins seems to 
be on its way! 


Rare varieties of Connecticut cents are listed below. After each coin 
we list the Miller number and the rarity (such as R-l, etc. — based on 
Miller’ s own rarity scale ranging from “common” to R-6 [the highest 
degree of rarity]).

thought he was working on a Fugio die, began the FU of FUGIO,

“Recently it was my pleasure to receive a copy of your Rare Coin 
Review No. 17 and to read your excellent article, “Our Changing 
Hobby—A Dealer’s-Eye-View”. Presently I am a college sophomore 
dealing part time in world coins. I attend two local coin shows per 
month and have a bourse table at each. It was certainly encouraging 
to read of your early experiences as a dealer. Yours is a great success 
story, and to learn that a vast company such as Bowers and Ruddy 
Galleries could grow from modest beginnings (with a great deal of 
work and dedication added, certainly), gave me quite a lift.” - an 
unsolicited comment from F.I.N. II of Midlothian. Illinois. _

Collection of Massachusetts Copper Coins 
We offer for sale a beautiful specialized collection by die varieties of 
Massachusetts half cents and cents of 1787 and 1788. We are 
considering breaking up this set to offer the varieties individually, and if 
this listing does not sell the set intact we will do this. The pieces are 
worth considerably more on a single-item basis. 

The set consists of the following coins: 1787 half cent, 8 different 
die varieties; 1788 half cent, 2 different die varieties; 1787 cent, 5 
different die varieties; and 1788 cent, 18 different die varieties. 

The grades range from Very Good to Uncirculated, with the average 
being Very Fine to Extremely Fine. This top-grade set was formed over 
a period of years and was constantly upgraded whenever a superior 
specimen could be found. It is a beautiful set and as such it will be a 
prized possession for its next owner. A real value for just .... 3495.00

Theatre at New York Token 

(c.1797) Theatre at New York token (cf. page 50 of the Guide Book). 
Issued by the Park Theatre in New York. We offer a splendid 
Brilliant Proof specimen of this extreme rarity. Of the estimated 15 
to 20 Theatre at New York tokens known to exist, none exceeds the 
presently-offered specimen in quality, and few can come close to 
equalling it. A gem coin. A prize for the colonial specialist. 3495.00 

Washington Pieces 

We offer a nice selection of Washington pieces, including the

1783 UNITY STATES cent. One of the most interesting of all 
Washington pieces, the UNITY STATES cent was made during the 
very early 19th century. The reverse is copied from a circa 1803 U.S. 
large cent, except that the legend reads UNITY STATES OF 
AMERICA—probably as an evasion of the counterfeiting laws. The 
last time we offered a group of UNITY STATES cents they sold 
quickly. Now due to a special purchase of colonial coins put away 
about two decades ago we have about fifteen pieces in stock, mostly 
in the grade of Very Fine. Now is an ideal time to acquire one of 
these beautiful and interesting coins: Very Good $22.00; Fine 
$49.00; Very Fine $55.00; (five VF for $195.00); EF .89.00 

(1783) Washington Double Head cent. Of interest as an authentic 
original two-headed coin! Good $19.00; Fine $42.00; Very Fine 
$52.50; Extremely Fine $99.00; EF-AU $109.00; AU, very rare in 
this grade.129.00 

1791 Small eagle cent. With reverse reminiscent of the Great Seal of the 
United States. Fine $69.00; Extremely Fine $139.00; AU, prooflike. 
A splendid specimen of this scarce issue .195.00 


“I have heard all kinds of nice things about Bowers and Ruddy 
Galleries, and I am sure you do also every day. I am enclosing a 
letter from a collector and dealer whom I respect, and in judging 
dealers he sets your firm above all others.” — an unsolicited 
comment (accompanied by a copy of a letter from a Texas dealer) 
from W.J. of Rochester, New York. _ 



“I really enjoy your Rare Coin Review. It is the best coin ‘wish 
book’ in print! Your grading is of the highest caliber. I have been 
buying coins from you for years and your grading is really superb. 
Your firm has made the coin hobby most enjoyable over the years. 
A satisfied customer thanks you ever so much.” — an unsolicited 
comment from P.E.P. of Munising, Michigan. 

1791 Large eagle cent. Abt. Fine $45.00; Extremely Fine $125.00; 
EF-AU $169.00; AU $189.00; Brown Uncirculated. Rare in this 
grade $249.00; Brown Uncirculated, prooflike surfaces. Another 
prize specimen $350.00; Uncirculated, red and brown surfaces. Still 
another top grade example of one of the most desired of all 

Washington pieces. 389.00 


(1792) WASHINGTON BORN VIRGINIA cent. Copper. Obverse with 
portrait of Washington surrounded by legend: GEO. WASHINGTON 
BORN VIRGINIA FEB. 11, 1732. Reverse with biographical data in 
10 lines: GENERAL / OF THE / AMERICAN ARMIES / 1775 / 
1789. We offer a splendid Extremely Fine specimen with minor 
handling marks on the rim. The piece we offer is far superior to the 
Guide Book plate coin (which is exceedingly weak on the reverse). A 
choice example of a classic Washington item. 2495.00 

1792 Washington Roman Head Cent 

1792 Washington Roman Head cent. Edge lettered: UNITED STATES 
OF AMERICA. A splendid light brown Proof specimen of this 
important rarity. This offering marks the first time we have ever 
handled a 1792 Washington Roman Head cent. Considering that 
nearly every other variety of colonial coin listed in the Guide Book 
has passed through our hands during the past two decades, this is 
quite a significant statement. The desirability of this specimen is 
poignantly illustrated by these factors: (1) It is an extreme rarity; a 
coin lacking in nearly every major private or museum collection. No 
recent sales records are known to us. (2) The design of the coin is of 
special interest. The styling of the Roman Head portrait is different 
and unique—thus making this a major design type quite unlike any 
other contemporary issues. The reverse is important in that it bears 
the heraldic American eagle and the denomination spelled out as 
CENT. (3) The condition of the presently-offered specimen is 
unimprovable; it is a lightly toned brown Proof. (4) The price at 
which we offer our coin is quite reasonable, even very low, in our 
opinion. Our dealer friends, Stack’s, recently sold a Clinton cent (of 
which we have had two specimens in the past 20 years, although 
none was equal in grade to the Uncirculated Stack coin) for 
$34,000.00, indicating the great desire for choice colonial pieces. 
The beautiful Proof 1792 Washington Roman Head cent is offered 
for just .14,975.00 

We think you’ll enjoy doing business with Bowers and Ruddy 
Galleries, Inc. Since 1953 Jim Ruddy and Dave Bowers have been 
supplying discriminating collectors with what we consider to be the 
best buys in the business. We offer you QUALITY, VALUE, and a 
PLEASANT TRANSACTION - all of which will add up to an 
enjoyable numismatic experience.__

(1795) Liberty & Security penny. Massive coin depicting Washington 
on the obverse and an eagle on shield on the reverse. Edge lettered: 
thick planchet. One of the most impressive of all Washington pieces, 
and of special interest due to the sentimental-edge inscription noting 
as it does the appeal of America as a refuge from oppression. Very 
Good $49.00; Very Fine $115.00; VF-EF $139.00; Extremely Fine

1796 half cent. Pole to cap. The classic rare date of the half cent series. 

The specimen we offer is a sharp VF-EF example which has some 
surface marks, but which has the designs, details, letters, etc. quite 
sharp. We offer this 1796 for what we consider to be a real bargain 
price: for less than the Guide Book valuation for just Fine! Buy this 
rarity for only. 2595.00

to each shipment, knowing that I would be pleased with the

Extremely Rare 1836 Half Cent 

1836 Half cent. Original struck from unbulged dies. Struck only in 
Proof condition, 1836 is one of the most important dates in the half 
cent series. The present 1836, a beautifully toned Proof, is one of 
just two specimens we have had during the past ten years. A prize 
specimen of a prime American rarity. Fewer than two dozen 
specimens are known to exist. First telephone call gets it for 1975.00 

1837 Half cent token. HALF CENT WORTH OF PURE COPPER. 
While our stock of a dozen pieces lasts we offer these at extra-special 
prices; at attractive reductions from catalogue, due to a special 
purchase we made: Very Fine $49.50; Extremely Fine $59.00; 
EF-AU $69.00; Sharp AU, very scarce in this high grade.89.00 

1849 Large date. First collectable date of the braided hair 1840-1857 
design type. VF-EF $32.00; Extremely Fine $39.50; Red and brown 
Uncirculated. One of the finest 1849 large date half cents we have 
ever seen. For some reason 1849 half cents (and those of 1853 as 
well) are the only half cent dates of the 1849-1857 later-date series 
which are not occasionally seen with traces of mint red. In 
Uncirculated grade 1849 large date is a great rarity. It is perhaps 25 
to 50 times rarer than an Uncirculated 1854 or 1855 half cent, for 

instance. This 1849:. 249.00

“Thank you for your latest copy of the Rare Coin Review. 1 have 
participated in your Collection/Investment Plan for approximately 
six months and I have received nothing but exceptionally high 
quality coins. I was faced with a difficult decision in placing my 
‘Review’ order as I know all of the items are of a high grade. My 
enclosed order [for a Liberty nickel] reflects my choice,” — an 
unsolicited comment from W.R.K. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin._

We offer an interesting selection of United States large cents—pieces 
for the date collector as well as for the type set collector. Our offering 
includes specimens of the three major design types of 1793—the chain, 
wreath, and Liberty cap styles—plus scarcities among later issues, 1804 
and 1809 for example. 

1792 Copper Cent Pattern 
Without Silver Center 

1792 pattern cent, the specimen from the Century Sale (1965), and 
described there as: 1792 copper (or fusible alloy) cent without silver 
center. The act providing for the establishment of a United States 
mint required that all coins be of full weight and value. In 1792 
several ideas were tested to establish a one-cent piece having an 
intrinsic value equal to the face value. The Birch design cents were 
struck in pure or nearly pure copper. To meet the required value 
they were approximately the diameter of a half dollar. To alleviate 
this bulk an interesting compromise was made: a smaller diameter 
cent made of copper with a silver plug at the center to bring it up to 
the required intrinsic value was issued. Following the coinage of the 
silver center cents a few pieces were struck in a “fusible alloy,” 
copper and silver mixed together. The specimen offered here is one 
of those fusible alloy pieces. To the best of our knowledge there are 
only five of these cents known. Three are permanently impounded in 
public collections: the pieces now in the Smithsonian Institution, 
Massachusetts Historical Society, and John W. Garrett (Johns 
Hopkins University) exhibits. The specimen offered here is inG-VG 
grade with a granular surface. When you consider that nearly every 
outstanding collection formed during the past century has lacked a 
specimen of this coin in any grade the opportunity to acquire this 
piece becomes a truly once-in-a-lifetime event. So concludes the 
description we wrote for this coin in 1965. Since that time we have 
not had the opportunity to handle any others. We offer this prime 
rarity for just.$14,950.00 

1793 Chain Cents 

1793 Chain AMERICA cent. Obverse with Liberty facing right. Reverse 
with unique design of chain links encircling the denomination. The 
very first American cent type and, as such, of great interest. A 
necessity for type sets. We offer the following attractive specimens: 
Nice Very Fine $1545.00; Sharp VF-EF $2795.00; Beautiful AU, 
one of the very finest 1793 chain cents we’ve seen. A prize specimen 
for the collector or dealer who wants the finest available. . 4995.00

$5 National Gold Bank Note. 1870. First National Gold Bank of San 
Francisco. F-1136. These notes were issued in California, as at that 
time, this was a “hard money” only area and National Bank notes 
were disliked. Congress provided, through an amendment to the 
National Currency Act of 1863, for California banks to issue notes 
redeemable in gold coin—thus the National Gold Bank Notes. Very 
few of these notes were ever issued, and very few remain outstanding 


today. It is not often that one of these notes comes on the market. 
We currently offer two (!) different notes: F-1136 Very Good,

M-300. Set of four gilt-edge bound (in gilt-tooled leather) volumes 
entitled Portraits and Vignettes Engraved by the Bureau of Engraving 
and Printing, Treasury Department, Washington, 1883. According to 
the former owner of these, just four such bound sets were produced. 
We have never seen another set, and inquiry (by the former owner) 
to the Smithsonian Institution revealed that this impressive set is not 
represented in that museum’s archives. Each volume is over 1” thick 
and contains steel engravings of presidents, prominent statesmen, 
allegorical scenes, topical subjects, and other vignettes, many of 
which were used on American paper money of the era. For anyone 
interested in Americana in its purest form these albums will be a joy 
to own. There are pages and pages of such vignettes as America 
Seizing the Lightning, Battle of Lexington, Civilization, Justice, 
Peace, Liberty and Union, Steamboat Landing, Loyalty, Columbia, 
The Pioneer, Eagle, Return of Peace, Reconstruction, Introduction 
of the Old World to the New, and Columbus Discovering Land, not 
to mention government buildings in Washington, famous United 
States ships, historical battle scenes, and other subjects. Each volume 
measures 6” wide by 7/4” high by I/ 2 ” thick. Each engraving is on a 
separate page with a wide border. There are hundreds of engravings 
in all. A prize acquisition for the currency collector, the numismatic 
museum or society, or the private collector. The set is in mint 

condition and is priced postpaid at. 1995.00

Crisp Uncirculated, Original 

We have acquired a small old-time group of currency dating from the 1830-1860 
era. These original sheets, each containing four notes, were printed for banks before ^ 
the United States government began its own legal tender issues. Each sheet is over 
100 years old and is guaranteed to be original and genuine. * 

Measurements of a typical sheet are: SVi" wide by 14” long. They are of high 
quality printing and engraving. When framed, a sheet will make a colorful and 
intersting decoration for your home or office. We have a number of sheets 
and on display here at Bowers and Ruddy Galleries, Inc. 

Of particular “human interest” is the sheet with a real $3 bill! k 

The craftsmanship and design of these early colorful notes certainly equals the || 
beauty of our early United States notes, which would cost many hundreds or 
thousands of dollars per sheet! Many of the sheets we offer were printed by the 
famous American Bank Note Co. Many of the sheets are in two colors. We offer the

James F. Ruddy and Q. David Bowers present Bowers and Ruddy Galleries’ 

Collection ‘Investment 

c Program 

Now, at last, you can participate in a program personally 
managed by experienced professional numismatists. The QUALITY 
and AUTHENTICITY of every coin is absolutely guaranteed. For 
many years James F. Ruddy, Q. David Bowers, and the other 
professional numismatists on our staff have helped collectors and 
investors make large profits in the field of choice and rare United 
States and world coins. This PROVEN SUCCESS is a matter of 
record. Now this experience and expertise is available for YOU. 
Right now we are accepting a limited number of new accounts in 
our Collection/Investment Program. If you are interested in rare 
coins as an investment we invite you to participate in what we 
consider to be the very best service available today. Read on. .. 

Our Service for Collectors and Investors 

What coins should I invest in? This question is often asked 
by the collector or investor who studies the bewildering array 
of “best bets,” “sure things,” etc. offered by so-called 
“investment advisors,” many of whom have little professional 
standing or numismatic experience. A glance at almost any 
numismatic publication will show dozens of confusing offers 
in this field. 

While short-term speculative profits (and whopping losses, 
too!) have been made in “special situations” from time to 
time, we have found in our many years of professional 
numismatics that the BEST, GREATEST, and MOST 
CONSISTENT PROFITS have been made by investors who 
buy QUALITY COINS — coins that are acquired as part of a 
meaningful collection and investment program combined. 

James F. Ruddy and Q. David Bowers have purchased and 
resold untold millions of dollars worth of coins during the past 

two decades. In the process we have helped to build some of 
the finest collection/investment portfolios ever assembled. 
Without exception, to our knowledge, these collections built 
by us have shown a very attractive profit if the coins were held 
for a five or ten year period or longer. In many instances the 
term has been shorter — a diversified $16,000.00 investment 
made by us for one of our clients more than doubled in three 
years, for example. Often the price we’ve paid has been 
double, triple, or quadruple the price the owner originally paid 
us for his coins. Often it has been even far, far more. 

Important Reasons for Choosing 
James F. Ruddy and Q. David Bowers 

In his recent and highly-successful book, How You Can 
Make Big Profits Investing In Coins, author Harry Forman had 
some nice words to say about us; words we consider to be 
quite important and significant inasmuch as they appeared in 
the first two pages of his book and inasmuch as WE WERE 
THIS REGARD! Now, Mr. Forman’s words: 

“Anyone can make predictions, and if he does so in a field 
in which he is already well known, they are sure to be widely 
read. Moreover, by waiting until people’s memories have 
somewhat blurred, and then by republishing only his successes, 
he can often build up a rather good reputation for himself. 

“In the numismatic field we have three different kinds ot 
forecasters. The first and commonest is the person who makes 
predictions simply as a promotional device to help sell 
whatever he has on hand. 1 don’t say that in all, or even most 

y&im % 

—Page 65— 


cases, this involves a deliberate deception. On the contrary, the 
very fact that a person has invested his own money to 
purchase one or another item would indicate a certain amount 
of faith in its market potential. But such predictions 
necessarily lack true discrimination, and depend for their 

success, if not on luck, then on the progress of the market as a 

“A second type of forecaster is the non-professional 
numismatist who dabbles in speculation and writes books or 
articles on market trends. Such an individual is more serious in 
his selections and understands that there are always 
widespread differences in the potential of various issues and 
series. But for all that, his livelihood is not dependent on his 
predictions, and even should they fail he is still reimbursed by 
his royalties. 

“The third and rarest type is the successful full-time dealer 
who forecasts, not for promotional purposes, but simply to 
share his insights with the general investing public. My good 
friend Q. David Bowers is one such forecaster, having given 
much excellent investment advice through the Empire Review 
and more recently through the Rare Coin Review (the 
periodical magazine issued by Bowers and Ruddy Galleries, 
Inc. of Hollywood, California).” 

James F. Ruddy of our staff has likewise been honored by 
many other writers and organizations. The Professional 
Numismatists Guild’s Distinguished Service Award is but one 
of the many professional recognitions he has received. 
Numismatic research and study have brought many rewards his 

Photograde, the book on coin grading, has been so 
successful that it has gone through many large printings and 
has been accepted as standard by leading dealers, collectors, 
and numismatic organizations everywhere. Many important 
numismatic discoveries have been made by James F. Ruddy. 
To cite but one of many examples, he first identified in our 
research department the 1888/7 overdate Indian cent. 

There is a Difference — An Important One ... 

There are many “numismatic advisory services” of one sort 
or another. We think it is important. Correction: we think that 

it is ESSENTIAL for your success that you exercise careful 
judgment when selecting a firm with which to do business. 

If you are contemplating investing in coins, be CRITICAL. 
Ask if the firm: 

Bowers and Ruddy Galleries and/or James F. Ruddy and Q. 
David Bowers are members of the Professional Numismatists 
Guild (as noted, James F. Ruddy received the PNG’s 
Distinguished Service Award), the prestigious International 
Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN), the 
American Numismatic Association (Q. David Bowers is life 
member 336; Janies F. Ruddy is life member 337), and other 
leading organizations worldwide. The firm has served as a 
consultant to numismatic organizations and government 
agencies on matters involving authenticity. 

Ruddy and Q. David Bowers have PROVEN EXPERIENCE 
On the front page of one of its issues The Forecaster, 
America’s leading coin investment newsletter, introduced an 
article by Q. David Bowers by stating that: “Mr. Bowers is a 
director of Bowers and Ruddy Galleries, Inc., Hollywood, 
California. Famous author, scholar, and friend, David Bowers 
has a degree in finance and is conversant with the present 
international monetary instability. In the past when Dave 
made recommendations in confidential Forecaster articles, 
those who took his suggestions made nice profits.... His 
partner, incidentally, is the same Jim Ruddy of Photograde 
fame—the grading standard of the industry.” The comments of 
Harry Forman quoted earlier represent another example of 
recognized success. Other examples abound. 

Yes, it is important to ask the preceding questions and 
others before you spend a cent. Also ask: Can I be sure that I 
will receive the QUALITY and VALUE I pay for? (This is a 
most important question, for if you are not familiar with 
quality and value you are placing your investment in jeopardy 
if you do not buy from an established professional dealer.) 
Bowers and Ruddy Galleries absolutely guarantees the 
QUALITY and VALUE of each item sold. 

Can I have confidence in the firm? Are they sincerely 
interested in giving me GOOD ADVICE or are they mainly 

—Page 66— 

interested in just selling me coins? Ponder these questions 
carefully. We believe that Bowers and Ruddy Galleries, Ine. 
comes up with the right answers to each. And, this is an 
important difference — a difference which is most important 
to your investment success. 

Our Collection/Investment Programs 

Our Collection/Investment Programs offer a number of 
advantages. You enjoy the prestige and satisfaction of doing 
business with one of the world’s largest and most respected 
numismatic firms; a firm which has handled millions of dollars 
worth of coins, including nearly every major rarity in the 
book; a firm of unquestioned financial reputation and 

By means of our Collection/Investment Programs you can 
build an IMPORTANT and MEANINGFUL group of rare coins 
simply by making payments at your convenience. Over the 
years our clients have found rare coins to have been a 
wonderful hedge against inflation. Coins represent an 
outstanding investment with excellent potential for future 
appreciation. Our Collection/Investment Programs make it 
easy for you to assemble a group of really CHOICE and 

There are no service charges of any kind to pay. You pay 
just our regular competitive market price for coins—sometimes 
even less (in the instances of quantity purchases when we pass 
a special buy on to you), but NEVER more! There are no 
postage and handling charges, no advisory fees, no “extras” of 
any kind. 

YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION. You are not signing 
any tricky contract. If you are not 100% delighted with the 
coins you receive in our Collection/Investment Program you 
can cancel without notice at any time simply by discontinuing 
your payments. You won’t owe us a thing- and we won’t owe 
you a thing. By each maintaining our independence we are in 
the spotlight — we have your “command performance” to 
provide the QUALITY and VALUE you demand. 

FIRST CHOICE: When you participate in our Collection/ 
Investment Program you have first pick of the LARGEST 
U.S. COINS in existence and one of the finest stocks of world 

coins. As new collections and other purchases are constantly 
being added to our inventory you’ll get first pick of many of 
the most desirable pieces. 

James F. Ruddy PERSONALLY supervises the program and 
PERSONALLY SELECTS the United States coins you will 
receive, with the assistance ol Q. David Bowers. Karl Stephens 
selects coins of the world. The experience oi James F. Ruddy, 
Q. David Bowers, Karl Stephens, and other professional 
numismatists on our staff is an advantage that is priceless: an 
advantage that money can’t otherwise buy. 

Advantages for Us 

The Collection/Investment Program has two main advan¬ 
tages for us. In a way they are advantages for you, too! They 

(1) We are able to place directly many beautiful coins 
without the expense of “sold out” letters, credit problems, 
advertising preparation and listing, catalogue [(reparation, 
etc.—resulting in a savings for us. In a high-volume, 
low-margin-of-profit business tins savings can be quite 

(2) Our main problem is buying coins, not selling them! By 
placing with selected buyers such as yourself these choice 
coins we hope to have the opportunity to buy them back 
someday. There is no obligation for you to sell your coins 
back to us. You can sell them wherever you please—as the 
marketplace is free and competitive. However, it has been our 
happy experience that many, many collectors and investors 
who purchased choice United States coins from us back in the 
1950’s and 1960’s have kept us in mind—and we have bought 
their holdings when they were later re-oflered to us. Without 
exception, to our knowledge, each seller has realized a 
substantial profit! So, by selling you CHOICE COINS OF 
HIGH QUALITY today we hope you’ll keep us in mind in the 
future, and that you’ll help us with our purchase requirements 
five, ten, or fifteen years from now! 

How Our Collection/Investment Program Works 

Each month (or other interval you choose) we will sell you 
a group of choice high-quality coins. These pieces will be coins 

—Page 67- 

with established numismatic values (as opposed to recent 
speculative issues). Coins will be in HIGHER GRADES: 
Uncirculated or Proof, or in the instance of certain rarities or 
very early pieces, in Fine or better condition. 

If you are interested in short-term speculation, this program 
is NOT for you, and we respectfully recommend that you buy 
elsewhere. There are countless “investment advisors” in the 
field of modem speculative issues, and we're not among them. 

with a proud heritage to protect—and we are not about to 
change our stvle! You’ll receive CHOICE COINS OF PROVEN 

These coins will be like those which have paced the market 
in the past: scarce gold coins, Uncirculated silver dollars, 
choice United States type coins (coins needed for inclusion in 
type sets), key dates, and similar items. Circulated modern 
coins of the type that are not rare now, nor will they be rare in 
the foreseeable future, will NOT be included! Rather, you will 
receive the “blue chips” of numismatics. 

Each month (or other interval) you send us $100, $250, 
$500, $1000, or more. We will then send you choice coins as 
described above. Each coin will be graded carefully and will be 
priced and invoiced individually, so you can maintain a record 
of your purchases (and we will keep a record here also). 

GUARANTEE: Here is what we guarantee: We guarantee 
that you will find our grading to be accurate and the price paid 
to be reasonable. After receiving your coins you have seven 
full days to consider the coins, examine them, have them 
appraised by others, and to consider them in any other way 
that you wish. If, FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER, you 
are not 100% delighted, your money will be refunded in full as 
per our guarantee. There is no red tape. In fact, no explanation 
is necessary! 

sold to you is absolutely guaranteed authentic. Over the years 
we have acted as consultants to government agencies, 
numismatic publications, and others in matters involving 
authenticity. You can be sure when you buy from Bowers and 
Ruddy Galleries, Inc. 

A Limited Program 

Even with our large inventory and unequalled buying 
facilities we cannot service a great number of participants in 
our Collection/Investment Program. By their very definition 
rare coins are rare—and, thus, we must limit the Program to 
the number of clients that James F. Ruddy, Q. David Bowers, 
and Karl Stephens can personally supervise and to the number 
for which we can supply choice coins. We offer this program in 
only a few selected places. We are not seeking a high-volume 
business in this regard. This is a custom program conducted on 
a very personal basis. We hope you’ll understand. 

Right now we offer the Collection/Investment Program in 
the following categories. Pick a favorite, if you have one. If 
not, then we respectfully suggest our general Collection/ 
Investment Program which covers a wide range of issues or, if 
you are among the many interested in gold coins, then we 
recommend our Gold Coin Purchase Plan. 

Here are the Programs we offer: 

Collection/Investment Program 

The basic Collection/Investment Program consists of 
investment in selected choice United States coins of various 
series. Over a period of time you will receive beautiful copper, 
nickel, silver, and gold issues, commemoratives, “key” dates, 
and other pieces similar to those which have been winners in 
the past The Collection/Investment Program is carefully 
diversified. If you are undecided as to which Program to 
choose or if you have no preference, we recommend the 
Collection/Investment Program as listed below. 

Program No. 2 .$ 100 per month 

Program No. 3 .$250 per month 

Program No. 4 .$500 per month 

Program No. 5 .$ 1000 per month 

Note: If you want to invest $50 per month or some amount less 
than our minimum $100 plan, then accumulate your money and 
send us, say, $100 every second month under our Program No. 2.

State 65 or Mint State 70. 

You will receive selected hand-picked pieces in the Morgan 
(1878-1921) and Peace (1921-1935) series. If you’re interested 
in silver dollars and want top quality, this program is for you.

emphasis on QUALITY pays off when the time comes to sell 
your collection and investment. Here are the Programs

Set of Varieties” when you send your first payment of $250 
or more. Otherwise we will start a type set for you.

month-to-month basis we’ll do our best to deliver to you what 
we consider to be the BEST VALUES in the coin field today. 
We think you’ll be really pleased!

will be enthusiastic also. 


Karl Stephens, manager of our World Coins Department 
and Janies F. Ruddy will select for you each month a nice 
selection of top-quality Uncirculated or Proof coins of the 
world: desirable crowns, minor issues, and other choice pieces 
of the types which have been excellent investments in the pasl 
and which should be excellent investments for the future. 

World coins represent a fast-growing area of numismatics, 
and our Coins of the World Plan is an ideal way to invest in 
this growth.

Galleries offers you an easy and convenient way to buy gold

money-back guarantee.

Or you can make a one-time (rather than on monthly or other 
regular payments) purchase of a group of gold coins for any amount 
(minimum: $250). 

You are under no obligation of any kind—either to keep the 
coins received or to continue our Gold Coin Purchase Plan in 
the future. As noted earlier, we accept (and enjoy!) the 
challenge of a “command performance,” and on a monthly 
basis we’ll do our best to deliver to you what we consider to 
be the best values. We are sure you’ll be pleased. 

To start: Just send us your initial payment of $250 or 
more—and tell us whether you want a one-time shipment or 
whether you would like to order from us regularly on a 
monthly basis. 

Gold Coin Purchase Plan No. 2 

This plan is for the buyer who would like to form a 
collection of different date and mintmark varieties of United 
States gold coins—including scarce issues and scarce denomina¬ 
tions (such as $1, $2/2, and $3). Coins sent will all be 
different. We will keep a list of the dates and mintmarks you 
receive, so that over a period of time you will build a beautiful 
collection of American gold coins. 

As is true of our other Plans, there is no obligation to keep 
the coins received (any item may be returned within seven 
days for an instant refund) or to continue your participation 
in our Plan. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

c U. G §. c Type Set 
Collection ^Plan 

A Convenient Way to Collect 

For the busy collector or investor who wants to assemble a 
choice set of coins but who hasn’t the time to spend 
intensively searching for each item we offer our U.S. Type Set 
Collection Plan. 

This plan enables you to build a set of major United States 
design types. To house your collection you’ll receive two 
Whitman “Bookshelf” albums free of charge with your first 
order. As each month’s selections arrive you can place them in 
the album for display. 

20th century issues in your type set will be in beautiful 
Uncirculated and Proof grades. 19th century issues will be 
Fine to Proof. The type set will contain representative 
examples of major design types. For instance, the series of 
U.S. nickel three-cent pieces from 1865 will be illustrated by a 
single coin—one of the inexpensive dates—from that period. 
(This is in contrast to a date set of coins which would include 
one of each date and variety.) 

As your type set grows you will enjoy watching the 
panorama of United States coinage unfold before you. For 
interest, educational value, and for investment for the future 
the U.S. Type Set Collection Plan has a lot to recommend it. 
This plan has been very popular over the years, and we have a 
large file of compliments from delighted participants! 

We Do the Work for You! 

We will keep a “want list” of the items you still need for 
your Type Set Collection Plan, so there’s no paperwork or 
other effort for you to do! When your coins arrive all you have 
to do is to check them (to be sure that they represent the 
condition and value you expect) and put them in your album. 
As your set grows it will be a beautiful display item you’ll be 
proud to own. 

True Numismatic Pieces 

The coins selected for your type set will be the quality you 
expect and will be true numismatic items. Our constant 
purchases of leading collections and rare individual pieces 

assures you of receiving the scarcer as well as the commoner 
issues in your type set at prices you’ll find to be excellent 

As selected United States type coins have increased in value 
handsomely over the years, your collection should be a nice 
“blue chip” investment for the future. Equally important, you 
and your entire family will enjoy the educational and 
historical aspects of these coins from America’s past. 

Some Comments We’ve Received 

We share with you some of the comments we’ve received 
concerning our United States Type Set Collection Plan: 

“I am thrilled with the first coins received from you. My set 
is already quite an attraction—and I can hardly wait until next 
month’s selections arrive.” 

"I like your quality on the other orders received from you, 
and if the coins in your Plan are as nice I know I’ll be 

“I am very pleased with my coins received so far. My family ( 
is getting interested too, and we’ve all been discussing what an 
educational opportunity the type set represents.” 

“It is nice to know that there is a monthly plan which offers 
truly desirable numismatic items of lasting value.” 

“My wife and children are fascinated with the coins you’ve 
been sending me. This is the first investment I’ve ever had 
which has captured the interest and enthusiasm of my whole 
family—and that’s great!” 

We are sure that you, too, will be equally enthusiastic when 
you receive your coins. In fact, we guarantee you’ll be pleased!

The Duchy of Austria as well as Styria, Carinthia, and Carniola came 
under the control of the House of Habsburg in the thirteenth century. 

From the early fourteen hundreds, when Albert V became Holy Roman 
Emperor, until 1806, the Habsburg rulers of Austria were, but for a 
brief gap, also Emperors of Germany. 

The struggle for power and lands caused the Empire’s territory to 
< hange often throughout the years, depending on the good or bad 
fortune of the Emperor. 

We are pleased to offer a well rounded selection of coins of the Holy 
Roman Empire and other Austrian principalities and Noble Houses for 
your consideration.

Canada — Silver Dollars 

Canadian silver dollars are becoming more and more difficult to 
locate in better grades. It appears that the values of the dollars are now 
beginning to move upward, in line with their scarcity. We anticipate 
that prices will advance sharply within the next few years. We believe 
that today’s market represents a favorable buying opportunity. Use this 
listing to start a collection of Canadian silver dollars or to add to your 
present set.

Note: Unlike the preceding issues, the silver dollars of 1945 through 

1948 tend to have a common characteristic; what appears to be a light 
“rubbing” on the cheek and neck. This is typical on almost all of these 
coins, even ones freshly taken from bank rolls.

Early Pesos of Dominican Republic 
The first peso issued was struck in 1891 under the French monetary 
system. As adopted, the new unit of exchange was the “FRANCO” 
which was divided into 100 centesimos. The coins followed all coinage 
regulations as to weight, alloy, etc. These were high in silver content 
and quite beautiful in design: 

1891-A (Paris) 5 FRANCOS. T-I0, E-l. On obverse: “Republica 
Dominica”, coat of arms. Reverse: “CINCO FRANCOS”, date, head 
of female native. A very light dig in the obverse field at base of neck 
keeps it from being a select specimen. Still Uncirculated at. . 230.00 

The second crown size coins of the Dominican Republic were issued 
in 1897. The dies for the coins were made in Paris, France, but the 
actual striking was done at the Philadelphia Mint The Pesos were made 
with a bad alloy, containing a very low silver content, were not well 
struck and sometimes even broke in two. Most coins are found in very 
worn condition, and to find one in high grade takes a great deal of 
searching. We offer the following:

1912 1 Ruble. Y-68; D-296. Centenary of Napoleon’s defeat 
1812/1912. Napoleon and his army invaded Russia and pushed all 
the way to Moscow in 1812. He was defeated soundly, however, by a 
cruel Russian winter, lack of supplies, and Russian guerrilla tactics. 
The obverse of the coin shows a two-headed Byzantine eagle with St. 
George and the dragon on the center shield. Surrounding are six 
coats of arms representing the various Russian provinces. The reverse 
inscription translates to read; “1812 — This famous year has passed 
by but the heroic deeds accomplished during it never fade — 1912.” 
Only 26,500 minted. Beautifully toned Abt. Uncirculated. . 199.00

exceptional value for just .149.50

After many heroic years of struggle, the army of the three 
Guarantees, headed by its leader, commander General Agustin de 
Iturbide marched triumphantly into the capital of New Spain. The 
struggle for Independence that began with Miguel Hidalgo y Castilla in 
1810, culminated with the Iturbide victory. 

He was proclaimed “Emperor of Mexico” on May 21st, 1822. His 
reign proved to be a short one and the coinage and currency issued 
during this brief time is highly sought after by collectors. 

It was during this 1822-1823 period that the very first paper money 
of Mexico was ever issued. Un and Dos Peso notes were issued on 
parchment like paper and watermarked. These notes did not meet with 
the approval of the public and after the formation of the new Republic 
they were accepted only as part payment for taxes. 

We are very pleased to offer, the very scarce Un peso Iturbide note. 
Catalogued in Gaytan No. D.F. 60. This note has sold for over catalog 
value of $240.00 in the past. We purchased a very small group (ten

the beautiful Indian Fanam of Travencore (Indian state). We have 
decided to once again make this special offer to our customers. We 
know it will be a sell out, so we suggest you order early to avoid 

This offering gives the collector the opportunity to acquire many 
different types from Mysore, Malabar, Tanjore, as well as other exotic 
states, and we will enclose an easy to read identification chart with each 
order. We know if you buy one of the little “gold jewels” you’ll want 
more.everyone does.

H-57. Rarely does a coin of such quality and rarity come upon the 
numismatic market. As you can see from the plate picture, this coin 
is truly superb. The-1822- Mo. J.M. 8 Escudos was the only gold 
denomination of Iturbide for this year. It carries the bust of Agustin 
(small head) and was thought to be struck shortly after he was 
proclaimed “Emperor” of Mexico. The reverse shows the small eagle 
on the “Nopal” (which was first used on the 8 reales) with the 
addition of a pile of arms. This particular coin is one of the finest 
“Iturbides” known, and we suggest a phone call to order this truly 
spectacular coin. Superb AU. 3550.00

A special guest article. .. 


by Maurice M. Gould 

Maurice M. Gould, internationally-knoum numismatic writer, has 
prepared the following article especially for this issue of the Rare Coin 

In my more than fifty years of involvement in the 
numismatic hobby, both as a professional dealer and as a 
collector, I have covered almost every country and every facet 
of the field, including “odd and curious,” tokens, paper 
money, and errors—but there is one specialty which has never 
ceased to fascinate me from the time I was nine years old: the 
colonial coins of the United States. Numismatics has been my 

I avocation, then my vocation, and now my avocation again, 
and I am still involved with colonials. 

I lived in the Boston area most of my life. This presented a 
great opportunity to acquire these coins, so I have built up a 
fine collection over the years. “What are the possibilities of 
assembling a choice collection of colonials today?,” you might 
ask. Some may say it is too late to start collecting coins of this 
early period of our country, but the time to start is the 
present, as in 1976 we will have the bicentennial year of our 
country and many thousands of new collectors will be looking 
for this material. Of course, there will be fewer of these coins 
available at that time. 

As I became more involved with colonials I became 
completely enamored with the historic impact of this coinage, 
the great men who participated in the history of the times, and 
it all became familiar to me. The background, economics, art, 
and history of the times gave me much insight into the forces 
which had impelled our forefathers to mint their own coins. 

The trials and errors they had to endure were tremendous. Yet 
they persevered. Today colonial coins survive as mementoes 
of those long-ago days. 

There are a number of ways to collect colonial coins. Some 
try to acquire them all, including all dates and major die 
varieties. Some collect specific areas such as pieces 
manufactured in this country or pieces struck in England for 
distribution in America. Finally there is the “type” collector. 


Collecting by types is the most practical method today. Even 

this can be broken down further to suit one’s [(articular needs 
or desires. 

The very earliest pieces, such as the New England (NE) 
coinage as well as the Willow Tree, are quite rare and seldom 
offered for sale. However, both Oak Tree and Pine Tree 
pieces of great historical significance, are usually available. The 
Oak Tree comes in the following denominations: twopence 
(which is dated 1662), and the 1652-dated three[ >ence, 
sixpence, and shilling. The Pine Tree coinage comes in three 
denominations: threepence, sixpence, and shilling, all dated 
1652. To my mind the Pine Tree pieces are among the most 
historic of all American colonial coins. 

When the Massachusetts Bay Colony established its early 
mint, John Hull of Boston was selected as its director. He was 
a successful and skillful silversmith and had excellent 
qualifications for the position. His compensation was to retain 
one shilling out of every twenty he produced. Robert 
Sanderson became his associate. The General Court of 
Massachusetts ordered that a “mint house made of wood, to 
be 16’ square and 10’ high, be erected upon the land of John 

When Hull was ready to commence his operation all persons 
who had bullion, silver plate or Spanish silver coins were 
allowed to bring them to the mint and to wait while their 
pieces were being melted, refined, and alloyed. They then 
obtained a receipt from the mintmaster. The receipt could 
then be exchanged for shillings, sixpence pieces, or other coins 
produced by the mint. 

The pine tree was a favored symbol of the Massachusetts 
authorities. It was used on the state flag and on many other 
state insignias. 

An interesting story, probably more fiction than fact, that 
has never been authenticated, pertains to Mintmaster Hull, 
who became one of the wealthiest men in the colony due to 
the mint’s operations. When his daughter married Samuel 
Sewall he gave her a dowry of Pine Tree shillings equal to her 
own weight. She was placed on one side of the scales and the 
shillings were placed on the other side until the scales 
balanced. According to records from a diary she weighed 125 
pounds, which would have been equal to nearly 50,000 

Many of these coins in collections today are clipped or 
damaged as they originally saw quite a bit of hard usage. Top 
grade specimens are always in strong demand. 

The later Massachusetts colonial coinage of 1787 and 1788 
consisted of copper pieces of the denominations of half cent 
and cent. These were the first American coins to actually bear 
the “half cent” and “one cent” values. Previously, such pieces 
were designated as halfpennies and pennies. 

135 - 

Joshua W itherle was appointed master of the mint in May, 
1787. When the necessary equipment was ready the order was 
given to produce $70,000 in copper cents and half cents. 
Witherle established his works on The Neck and at Dedham. 
I'he copper was first carted to Dedham to be rolled out in 
strips for planchet making. Then it was carted back to Boston 
to be coined. 1 lived only a few miles from the Dedham 
historic site for many years. A number of times I went out to 
try to locate some memorabilia from this early mint, but I 
never had any success. 

Massachusetts cents and half cents were struck for just two 
years, 1787 and 1788. Coinage was suspended when it was 
learned that each coin cost twice its face value to produce! 
Specimens of copper coins of these years are still available 
today in sharp condition for fairly reasonable prices. 

1787 Fugio cents were made during the same era. These are 
sometimes called “Franklin cents.” Struck on a contract basis 
in New York and Connecticut by private coiners, these Fugio 
cents were the first coins issued by the official authority of the 
United States government. There are numerous die varieties of 
Fugio cents. A great deal of research has been done on these 
pieces. Eric Newman, a prolific author in the colonial field, has 
produced a listing of die varieties of Fugio coins. 

“Mind Your Business,” the slogan which appears on Fugio 
coins, is the excellent suggestion of Benjamin Franklin. 

The popular and historic Fugio cents can still be obtained 
for fairly reasonable prices for many pieces were struck. 
During the 19th century the New Haven restrike Fugio cents 
were made. These coins have narrower rings on the reverse and 
are recognized as separate varieties by collectors today. 

Numerous medals and tokens have been struck to honor the 
Father of our Country. Collecting these has become very 
popular in recent years. The classic reference on Washington 
material is The Medallic Portraits of Washington, by W.S. 
Baker. This book is available today in reprint form. 

Many Washington pieces were struck in England after the 
conclusion of the Revolutionary War. Some of these are from 
beautifully engraved dies. Even though they were struck 
abroad, these coins have been accepted as part of the 
American colonial series. 

Collected also are Washington funeral medals. Most known 
specimens are in white metal or silver, holed at the top for 
suspension from a ribbon. A few pieces are known in gold. 
These funeral medals were issued in 1800 and were worn in 
various processions and other observances honoring the 

One of the most unusual and rare Washington medals is the 
famous “Ugly Head.” This satirical medal of the famous 
statesman, in profile, shows him without his wig and with his 
false teeth removed, giving him a grotesque appearance. The 
reverse of this coin has a chain of 13 rings, each bearing the 
name of one of the 13 colonies. In the center are the figures 
“84,” probably for the year 1784. The face of the medal has 

Very little is known concerning the origin of the “Ugly 
Head” piece. Most of the few specimens discovered have been 
found in the Boston area, lending credence to the belief that 
they were probably struck by a group of Tories who would go 
to any length to belittle and besmirch the great hero of the 

If you wish to begin your collection of colonial coins with a 
series priced very reasonably, try Connecticut coinage. These 
pieces are dated from 1785 through 1788 and cover many 
fascinating varieties, crude and imperfect planchets, and other 
interesting features. Popular varieties bear such names as 
“Muttonhead,” “African Head,” “Hercules Head,” “Mailed 
Bust,” “Draped Bust,” and “Horned Bust,” the latter having a 
hornlike die break projecting from the portrait! To top it off 
we have the “Laughing Head” variety. 

New Jersey cents are also quite reasonably priced. These run 
from 1786 through 1788. There are some rarities, the 
Washington obverse, the Iminunis Columbia, and the date 
under plow beam being examples. However, there are many 
popular and inexpensive varieties as well. Interesting among 
these are the “Serpent Head,” “Running Fox,” and “Bridle” 

Some Vermont varieties 17HS-1788 

—Page 136— 











Copper coins issued by the state of Vermont are also dated 
from 1785 through 1788 and come in many varieties. One of 
my personal favorites is the 1786 “Baby Head.” I have studied 
this coin for years and feel that it is undervalued on today’s 
market. Many of the Vermont pieces are crudely or weakly 
struck. Well struck specimens are worth a good premium. 

On the whole, New York colonial pieces are more difficult 
to obtain than are specimens from the three states previously 
mentioned, but there are a few dated 1787, called the “Nova 
Eborac” issues, which are still obtainable for relatively low 

Virginia had very few different pieces struck. All are 
considered to he patterns, with the exception of the 1773 
halfpenny. This variety is still obtainable for a nominal sum in 
choice condition, as a keg of Uncirculated pieces was 
discovered many years ago. This is possibly the only colonial 
coin which can be relatively easily obtained in Uncirculated 

While some of the other states had coinage, they issued just 
a few different pieces and not a wide range of dates, types, or 
die varieties. 

Very few dealers specialize in this field of numismatics. In 
my opinion it is advisable to deal with someone who is 
knowledgeable in this specialized area. In this connection I 
have many nice memories of my dealings over the years with 
Jim Ruddy and Q. David Bowers. It was Dave Bowers who 
gave me a clue in my collecting of United States 
counterstamped large cents that some pieces might be the 
hallmarks of early silversmiths. Eventually I published a listing 
of the Bowers discoveries plus my own findings. 

During the early years of United States numismatics, 
American colonial coins and currency were among the most 
popular items. The auction records of sales held during the 
19th century show that many of the highest prices realized 
were for colonial issues. Tradesmen’s cards, tokens, and 
medalets were also popular and brought astounding prices. 
Habits of the collector have changed a number of times during 
the past hundred years. Now tokens, medals, and especially 
colonial coins are coming again into their own. Even so, many 
of these pieces are sharply undervalued in comparison to what 
far commoner U.S. mint issues of the 19th and 20th centuries 
sell for. 

While it is usually not thought of as a colonial coin, the 
famed Pillar Dollar, one of the world’s greatest trade coins, 
should have a spot in each collection. This piece was legal 
tender in the United States until 1857. Many of the old 
collections I have appraised over the years have had at least 
one specimen of the Pillar Dollar in them. The stories about 
these pieces are legendary, from pirates to shipwrecks. In 
recent years a fairly large number of them have been recovered 
from the depths of the ocean. They are still priced within 
reason and are worthy of a place in your colonial collection. 

Over the years a number of hoards of colonial coins have 
been found. One group called the “Castine Deposit” was 
discovered in Castine, Maine in 1840. This contained 
approximately 2,000 pieces of old Spanish dollars, French, 
Belgian, and Portuguese coins, and had about 25 to 30 
Massachusetts Pine Tree shillings and sixpence pieces. Many of 
the pieces were in excellent condition, giving numismatists and 
historians the opportunity to study the varieties and types 
which came to light. 

Other pieces have been unearthed in various areas of New 
England, sometimes by bulldozers, sometimes by plows. They 
have even been found in the eaves of old farmhouses. I wo of 

the largest finds of Pine Tree coins were made in Roxburv, 
Massachusetts and Exeter, New Hampshire. 

Again 1 repeat, it is timely to start your collection of 
colonial coins now. Do not delay, as many sources are drying 
up and dealer stocks will become weaker. These coins are part 
of the heritage of our great country, are relatively inexpensive, 
and are fascinating to collect.

We invite our readers to submit questions pertaining to any aspect of 
numismatics within the purview of this catalogue. The questions of the 
most general interest will appear in this column. 

QUESTION: Is the current legend that President George Washington 

supplied silverware to make 1792 half dismes correct?-A.E.L., 

Kansas City, Missouri 

ANSWER: It is extremely doubtful that George Washington would 
have contributed silver in wrought or crafted form to be melted down 
to make coins. It would be more reasonable to assume that he would 
have contributed silver in bullion form or guaranteed a personal bond 
to enable the Mint to acquire silver bullion. During the early days at 
the Mint the various officials had to post personal bonds which in some 
instances were of unreasonably high amounts. 

Possibly to expedite the situation President Washington might have 
made some sort of a guarantee for the bulk silver from which the 
approximately 1,500 1792 half dismes were struck. This would not 
have amounted to a great deal of money in any event. 

Concerning the 1792 half disme Don Taxay notes (cf. page 187 of 
Scott’s Encyclopedia of U.S. Coins) that “President Washington himself 
deposited the first silver and was repaid with 1500 half dismes, which 
he presented to his friends here and abroad.” 

A LETTER from C.R.B. of Louisville, Kentucky: 

Dear Dave: Since I am now 66 and retired I suppose I can address 
you by your first name! I greatly enjoy and learn quite a bit from your 
column in “Coin World.” I never had the time to devote to the real 
study of coins so I am very interested in your informative column. I am 
really amazed at your knowledge of coins. I have collected since 1917 
so I find much fun in looking over my coins to see if I have any you 
mention. I think your recent discussion of Longacre’s preference for 
italic or slanting 5’s [such as in the 1855 large cent] is interesting. I 
have examined some of my other 1855 coins and find that they have 
italic 5’s — with the 5’s of my 1855-S $5 gold piece slanting even more 
than on the 1855 cent. By the way, the enclosed clipping from “Coin 
World” might be interesting to you, knowing as I do of your interest in 
colonial coins: 

“Found Shillings: A hoard of 6,000 New England shillings ‘scarcely 
discolored’ was found in jars by William Brown, according to the July 
21, 1737, Boston Weekly Newsletter.” 

ANSWER: Thank you for your nice comments. The interesting thing 
about Longacre’s italic 5’s is that only the 5’s in the 1855 dates are 
italic; the 1 and 8 are of upright form as: 1855. To be consistent the 
entire date should either be 1855 or 1855. The 1856 large cent variety 
with just the 5 italic appears even more inconsistent: 1856. 

A LETTER from T.S. of Alexandria, Virginia: 

I have just finished reading your Rare Coin Review No. 17, and I 
must say that your catalogues are collectors’ items in themselves. I 
enclose an order for several items from this latest issue, and I know that 
they will be in line with the other fine items I have received from you 
in the past. 

I read your article, “Our Changing Hobby — A Dealer’s-Eye View,” 
and it prompted me to think back to the early 1950’s when the prices 
of coins were low indeed. I too was a high school student in those days 
in an average-size town in middle New Jersey. I too went from bank to 
bank in search of scarce coins to fill up my coin albums. I collected the 
various series from Indian cents through Washington quarters. 

Buffalo nickels were easy to find in circulation then. Most dates were 
in the 1930’s, but there were also a goodly number from earlier years, 
although earlier pieces were in lower grades. 1932-D and 1932-S 
Washington quarters were not uncommon, and I found quite a few 
lower-grade ones among the many bank rolls I examined. 

Once in a great while I would come across a we 11-circulated Indian 
cent. It was not difficult to fill up any of the coin sets with the 
exception (as you pointed out) of the really rare issues in each series. 
Liberty nickels were also fairly easy to find, with the exception of 1883 
with CENTS, 1885, 1886, and 1912-S. 

Today I wish that I had spent more time with coins and had 
purchased more scarce issues when prices were lower. However, as you 
have stated we must look ahead and not back. The future of coin 
collecting seems very bright, and with greater numbers of people 
jumping on the coin bandwagon we can expect a greater hobby to come 
out of it all with monetary appreciation to reward us for our efforts. 

With the economic unrest we are now experiencing throughout the 


^nsitocr Jforum 

world (and God only knows where it will all end), there is very little in 
the way of an investment vehicle that the average man can afford 
today. Coins, I feel, are such a vehicle. 

FOLLOW-UP: We have always been intrigued by the mention in 
numismatic literature of a large cent having been struck at the New 
Orleans Mint in 1837. We have invited further information on this in 
our “Coin World” column and also from time to time in our catalogues. 
Recently Dr. Warren A. Lapp, editor of “Penny Wise,” periodical 
publication of the Early American Coppers Club (EAC), sent the 
following information to us. We quote from Dr. Lapp’s letter and 

“In reference to your request for information on the large cents 
struck at the Mint in New Orleans, I am enclosing some copies of pages 
from earlier issues of Penny Wise which will answer your question. 

“It should be noted also that Walter Breen in his monograph The 
U.S. Minor Coinages 1793-1916, page 13, lists the large cent struck at 
the New Orleans Mint as being the 1836 Newcomb variety 7, State IV, 
and notes that it was struck in 1837. However, since the 1836 N-7 was 
struck from the same obverse die as the N-6 for that year, the variety 
number variation is only one of semantics. 

“Since the publication of the Breen monograph, it has been reported 
by Julian and others that only one die, the obverse for the 1836 N-6, 
was found in one of the presses when they arrived at the New Orleans 
Mint. Consequently, if any large cents were struck at the New Orleans 
Mint, they most likely were uniface and the quantity struck was 
extremely limited. 

“I very much enjoy your column in Coin World and am grateful for 
your catalogues.” 

Dr. Lapp’s enclosures consisted of a “Penny Quiz,” by Capt. John D. 
Wright, which appeared in Penny Wise, Vol 2, pp. 14-15, January 15, 
1968, and an article, “Surviving Mementoes of the First U.S. Mint,” by 
Dr. Lapp himself in Vol. 3, p. 116 (July 15, 1969) of the same 

The Capt. Wright quiz asked as question number eight: “What large 
cent was struck, not at the Philadelphia Mint, but at one of the six 
branch mints, and at which branch mint was it struck?” 

The reply was given as: “The 1836 N-6, State IV, was struck at the 
branch mint in New Orleans in 1837, using dies sent from Philadelphia 
for setting up and adjusting the presses for the new branch mint there. 
These presses were later used in 1838 for the coining of dimes and half 
dimes. This subvariety of large cent, the 1836 N-6 IV, bears no mint 
mark, of course. W.E. Johnson lists this coin as rarity 6, but his rarity 
studies are as yet incomplete.” 

The July 15, 1969 issue of Penny Wise updates the situation: “More 
recently an article by R.W. Julian, titled “Dimes First Flow in New 
Orleans,” appeared in the Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine of 
September 1968. In the article Julian reports that one of the coin 
presses sent to New Orleans was found to contain an obverse die for an 
1836 cent. No reverse die was found, however. Julian suggests that the 
press might have been an old one which formerly had been used at the 
Philadelphia Mint or that it had been tested there before being shipped 
to New Orleans. In any event, there is some question as to whether or 
not the 1836 N-6, State IV was struck in New Orleans. Statistics for the 
New Orleans branch mint’s output, as cited by Julian, do not record 
any striking of cents.” 


“When I received my first copy of the Rare Coin Review I was 
tempted not to order several things which were on my want list, for 

I saw the same coins offered for several dollars less in-[a 

leading numismatic publication — Ed.]. I ordered the same coins 
from you and from the other dealer, thinking I would return yours 
as per your advertised ‘Comparison Test’ once I had your coinsand 
the other dealer’s side-by-side. Both shipments arrived on the same 
day, and I compared the coins. This took me only about two 
seconds to do, for yours were Brilliant Uncirculated, as you 
advertised, and the others were barely AU. So your ‘Comparison 
Test’ won with flying colors — and you now have another steady 
customer: me! I was puzzled at first, but now I know what’s what” 
— an unsolicited comment from H.E. of Chicago, Illinois.

The following article recently appeared as a “ Who’s Who in 
Numismatics’’ feature in Numismatic News, published by Krause 
Numismatic Publications, Iola, Wisconsin. This adaptation is used with 
the permission of that organization. The text is by Ed Reiter of the 
Numismatic News staff. The sketch is by Bill King. 

Q. David Bowers wasn’t exactly born with a silver spoon in 
his mouth—but he did have a silver dollar in his baby book. 

“I found out about it while looking through family 
artifacts,” Bowers says. “An 1886 silver dollar was listed as 
one of the gifts I received. I don’t know whatever happened to 
it, but that was my first coin.” 

It was the first of a great many, for Bowers went on to 
become one of the nation’s biggest and best-known coin 
dealers. The coin business he and his partner, James F. Ruddy, 
now operate in Hollywood, California, is a multimillion- 
dollar-a-year operation. 

Bowers didn’t jump straight from crib to bourse floor. He 
did become interested in coins at an early age, however—and 
once he got his feet wet it didn’t take him long to advance 
from novice collector to experienced dealer. 

“1 started collecting coins in 1953, when I was 14, he 


recalls. “I had started collecting rocks and minerals previously, 
and one day, while 1 was visiting Robert Rusbar, our local tax 
collector who shared my interest in that hobby, he showed me 
his coin collection, too. 

“I found the whole idea terribly fascinating. The prospect 
of finding a rare date Lincoln cent in circulation absolutely 
amazed me. So I got some Whitman folding hoards and started 
picking cents from circulation.” 

Bowers was living in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, at the time. 
He had been born in Honesdale, Pa., and also had lived in 
Baltimore for a short time during early boyhood. Forty Fort, 
though, was the town where he grew up. 

Within months after taking up coins as a hobby he had 
found enough—and learned enough—to become a vest-pocket 
dealer. He borrowed a few hundred dollars from his father to 
help get his business off the ground. Then he began running 
advertisements in local newspapers and hobby publications. 

“At first I had to take the bus when 1 went to see customers 
on the other side of town,” he recalls. “Or my father had to 
drive me. 1 wasn’t old enough to drive; you had to be 16. 

139 - 

I>\ the time lie reached his senior year in high school his 
business was flourishing, and coins were his principal 
extracurricular activity. He didn’t neglect his studies, though: 
he was a finalist in the first National Merit Scholarship 
competition in 1956 and went on to win further academic 
distinction and a degree at the Pennsylvania State University. 

Bowers attended his first American Numismatic Association 
convention in 1954 in Cleveland, and was thoroughly 
impressed with the proceedings. The following year, at the age 
of 16, he impressed a lot of other people by getting his own 
bourse table at the ANA convention in Omaha. His stature as a 
national hobby figure has been growing ever since. 

Bowers first joined forces with Jim Ruddy in 1958. 

“Jim’s parents lived near Forty Fort,” he recalls, “and one 
day he came down to see me to buy some coins. I had 
continued my coin business while attending college, and Jim 
was operating the Triple Cities Coin Exchange in Johnson 
City, New York. 

“We found that our talents and interests blended quite well, 
so we combined our interests and formed the Empire Coin 
Company in Johnson City. I handled my part of the business 
from college until 1960, when I graduated, and then I moved 
to Johnson City.” 

From almost the beginning, Bowers’ business had been 
oriented primarily toward mail orders. Empire Coin Company 
followed the same pattern, and in the early 1960’s—when the 
hobby in general and the mail order coin business in particular 
enjoyed an unprecedented boom—Empire became one of the 
nation’s leading companies. 

Paramount International Coin Corporation acquired Empire 
in 1965, and for the next year Bowers was associated with 
Paramount in Englewood, Ohio. At that time he left the 
business side of coins (but continued his extensive numismatic 
writing) to indulge in another one of his great loves: automatic 
musical instruments. 

He and Terry Hathaway of Santa Fe Springs, California, 
formed Hathaway and Bowers, Inc.—a company which grew in 
less than two years into the world’s largest music box dealer. 

“I became interested in automatic musical instruments in 
1960,” he relates. “It was at an antique show. I saw this old 
Regina music box, made around 1905, and decided I had to 
have it So I bought it and this became my hobby.” 

Coins, he says, are strictly his business now, but automatic 
musical instruments—music boxes, player pianos, nickelode¬ 
ons, and the like—are still a hobby, business ties 

Bowers has given up his association with Hathaway. Four 
years ago he formed a new coin dealership—Bowers and Ruddy 
Galleries, Inc.—as a continuation of his relationship with Jim 
Ruddy. He’s still active on the business end of music boxes, 
though, as co-owner (with Claes 0. Friberg) of the Mekanisk 
Musik Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark—the largest museum 
in Europe for such instruments and one of Denmark’s prime 
tourist attractions. 

One of the greatest assets Bowers has brought to his 
hobbies—artd businesses— has been his thirst for knowledge. 

"I have a fantastic interest in everything I get involved in,” 
he declares. T read voraciously—every bit I can—and the more 
I read the more interested I get.” 

I his interest is reflected in the vast reference library 
Bowers and Ruddy Galleries maintains. 

“We have thousands of volumes,” Bowers reports. 
'Whenever we hear about a book we feel may be significant, 
we go out and buy it Just the other day we bought $200 
worth of books. 

“As far as I’m concerned, the best expenditure we can make 
is for a useful reference book.” 

He himself has made many important contributions to 
numismatic literature, for apart from coins and music boxes, 
writing has been the number one hobby in his life. 

His contributions include a book on U.S. half cents, a book 
of reminiscences and reflections titled “Coins and Collectors,” 
and the weekly columns he has written for Coin World since 
the early ’60’s. His work has appeared in every other major 
publication in the hobby, including Numismatic News.Weekly 
and Coins Magazine. 

He has done his share of writing about music boxes, as well, 
and his 1,008-page “Encyclopedia of Automatic Musical 
Instruments,” recently selected by the American Library 
Association as one of the outstanding reference books of our 
time, is considered by collectors to be the standard source in 
that field. 

His writing ability has come in handy from a business 
standpoint, too: he takes personal charge of preparing the 
Rare Coin Reviews issued periodically by Bowers and Ruddy 
Galleries, and also strings the words together for the sale 
catalogues of the American Auction Association, Inc., the 
company’s sister firm. 

He’s a skilled and widely sought speaker, also, and has 
participated in numerous educational forums at coin shows 
around the country. 

Bowers travels extensively—throughout the United States 
and abroad, too. He chose Southern California as his base of 
operations, he says, because it offers “an ideal combination of 
coin activity and a pleasant climate.” 

His two sons, Wynn, 11, and Lee, 9, have developed an 
interest in coin collecting and often attend conventions. 

Q. David Bowers has made quite a name for himself in the 
realm of coins. One thing that puzzles many, though: What 
does the “Q” stand for? 

“It stands for Quentin,” Bowers says. 

“I was named after my father, but I decided to use my 
middle name so as not to cause confusion in the family.” 

There’s no confusion about where Dave ranks in the 
'‘family” of numismatists. That bus he caught in Forty Fort 
has taken him right to the top of the heap.

The Terrell Collection Auction 


The Terrell Collection Sale 

For two days—May 18th and 19th—the attention of the 
numismatic world was riveted on the American Auction 
Associations sale of the Terrell Collection in Hollywood, 

Under the auctioneer’s hammer went 1,570 lots of choice 
and rare coins of the United States and other countries. 
Enthusiastic bidders from all over America, Europe, and Asia 
competed to acquire the many superb pieces in the sale. When 
all was said and done, over $600,000.00 worth of pieces had 
found new owners, and many new price records had been set. 

The catalogue noted that: “The Terrell Collection was 
formed over a period of years—beginning years ago when 
choice coins were more plentiful than they are now. Emphasis 
was placed on quality, with price being of secondary 
importance. The result was the assembly of one of the finest 
collections we have ever had the privilege of offering for sale; a 
collection replete with many gems, great scarcities and rarities, 
and other desirable pieces. As the individual catalogue 
descriptions indicate, there are many pieces here which have 
not appeared on the market for many years and which will 
probably not appear again on the market within the 
foreseeable future.” 

United States Half Cents and Cents 

The sale opened at 7 o’clock Friday evening in the orange- 
and beige-decorated Blossom Room of Hollywood’s famous 
Roosevelt Hotel—the scene of many outstanding events in the 
past, but perhaps none so important to the numismatist as the 
Terrell Collection sale! 

First on the block were several beautiful half cents. For the 
guidance of readers who have a copy of the Terrell Collection 
catalogue we give lot numbers in brackets, [4 | for example, 
throughout this article. A 1793 half cent |1| described as 
very beautiful EF-AU” started things with a realization of 
$1550. Next on the list was a splendid AU example of the 


famous 1 over 1 variety of the 1797 half cent [2] which set a 
new record price at $1850. Following on the heels of that was 
a lovely glossy brown Uncirculated 1800 half cent [3] which 
was knocked down at $450. Later in the sale a choice Brilliant 
Uncirculated 1835 half cent [119] fetched a new record price 
of $225. 

“Large cents appeared in several places throughout the 
Terrell Collection sale. An Extremely Fine 1793 Chain cent 
[6] fetched $3,500, followed by an EF 1793 Wreath [7] at 
$1,250. A 1797 cent [9], an Uncirculated example from the 
Nichols Find, went quite reasonably at just $850. An 1814 
brown Uncirculated cent [10] commanded a new level at 
$1,600. Nearly 150 Uncirculated large cents of the 1816-1857 
years [appearing in the sale as lot numbers 1106 through 1250 
inclusive] brought prices mainly in the $100 to $200 range, 
although some scarce and early issues went higher. 

Several outstanding small cents in the Terrell offering set 
new price records. An 1858 large letters flying eagle cent in 
BU grade, a gem striking [14], set a new level at $425. An 
1859 Brilliant Uncirculated cent [15] fetched $275. An 1880 
Proof Indian cent [17 ] cost the buyer $95. 

Considerable attention was focused on the auctioneer, 
George Bennett, as lot 189, a specimen of the 1888/7 Indian 
cent, came up for sale. The coin, described as “attractive red 
and brown Uncirculated with prooflike surfaces in areas,” was 
one of the two specimens originally disqovered by James F. 
Ruddy and announced to the numismatic fraternity via news 
articles in 1970. The previous auction record of $2,600 for 
one of these pieces was quickly shattered as the coin sold for 
$4,000 to a prominent midwestern numismatist. 

2c, 3c, and 5c Pieces 

The question “what is it worth?’’ concerning an 1865/4 
overdate two-cent piece [18] in choice Uncirculated grade was 
answered when the piece found a new home at $450. The 
consignor to the sale must have been delighted for the piece 
was, in the cataloguer’s words, “acquired years ago as a regular 
1865 by the owner of the Terrell Collection.” 

Nickel three-cent pieces in the sale continued the strength 
of other series. An especially sharp 1868 [214] BU piece 
fetched $90. An example of the rare proof-only 1878 [250] 
brought $250., and a scarce Proof 1886 [19] sold for $140. 

In the silver three-cent series a BU 1852 [20] at $110 and 
another example [225] of the same date at $135 made new 
levels for this date. A beautiful 1862/1 overdate [228] went 
to a successful bidder at $230. 

Prices realized for nickel five-cent pieces included $185 for 
a sharply struck 1866 [230] with rays; $225 for a Proof 
1879/8 [236 ]; $140 for a BU 1881 [237 ]; $60 for an 1883 
Liberty nickel without CENTS [238 ] in BU grade; and $23 
each for two examples of the popular 1938-D over S 
“overmintmark” [249 and 250]. 

Half dimes were well represented throughout the American 
Auction Association sale. Lot 28, a BU 1795, fetched $2000. 


Lot 58 - $16,000 

Lot 395 - $4,800 

Lot 844 - $2,300 

Lot 75 - $6,800 

Lot 897- $2,600 

Lot 69 - $1,700 

—Page 143— 

An 1800 [30] in similar grade went tor $2,600. An 1837 
L ibert) seated Lialt dime without stars [32 J realized $460. A 
little later on in the sale another 1837 [645] was knocked 
down at $440—thus fairly definitively establishing a current 
market value for select examples of this popular issue. A 
number of choice specimens of Brilliant Uncirculated bust 
type half dimes were represented in the Terrell offering and 
mostly sold in the $200 to $250 range. A BU 1853 half dime 
with arrows [34] broke a new price barrier and realized $275. 

Throughout the sale a number of purchases were made by 
leading dealers who flew to Hollywood from all over the globe 
to attend the sale. It has been said that dealers often sense the 
strength of the market a few months before the general public 
does. If this is the case, good market times are ahead! Dealer 
bidding was enthusiastic as they strove to acquire pieces for 
commissions they were representing and also for their own 

United States Dimes and Quarter Dollars 

Dimes in the Terrell sale included a Brilliant Uncirculated 
1796 [36] at $4,600; an Uncirculated 1820 [654] at $1,050; 
a prooflike gem 1827 [37] at $1,700 (to a major buyer who 
attended the sale from New York and who considered this to 
be one of the nicest of his many purchases at the event); a 
prooflike 1830 [38] at $775; and two 1837 without-stars 
pieces at $900 each [39 and 661 ]. 

Among later Liberty seated issues we might mention an 
Uncirculated 1844 [284] at $660; an 1853 with arrows [40] 
in the same grade at $375; an 1866 BU [662] at $275; an 
1873 with arrows BU [42] at $500; an 1874 BU [663] BU at 
$525; and an 1880 BU [43] at $250. A specialist in the dime 
series carried home a gem example of the 1870-S [287] at 
$ 1, 200. 

A choice BU 1901-S dime [298] fetched $840. The year 
1942 is remarkable in the dime series for two overdates: the 
1942/1 (struck at the Philadelphia Mint) and its Denver 
counterpart, the 1942/1-D. Choice Uncirculated examples of 
these are rarely offered for sale. The Terrell Collection sale 
represented an unusual opportunity, and both of these coins 
set new records when they came up on the auction block. Lot 
308, the 1942/1, brought $960. Lot 309, a 1942/1-D, fetched 
$2,000 (against a mail bid of $2,400, thus saving the mail 
bidder $400, for the next underbid was $1,900). 

Twenty-cent pieces of interest included an 1875 Uncircula¬ 
ted [672] at $575; an 1875-S [673] in the same grade at 
$400; an 1877 [674] Proof at $800; and an 1878 [45] Proof 
at $725. 

Among quarter dollars the 1796 has always been a 
landmark. The piece has three qualities which give it a special 
appeal: (1) It is the first year of issue of the quarter 
denomination. (2) It is the only year of the design type with 
the small eagle reverse. (3) It has a very small mintage. The 
Terrell Collection specimen [46], described as magnificent 
Lncirculated with prooflike surfaces on both obverse and 
reverse, promised to be one of the highlights of the sale. And 
indeed it was! The coin sold for $17,000 into one of America’s 
finest private collections. 

Prices for early bust type quarters were mixed and ranged 
mostly in the $900 to $2000 range, the latter figure being for 
a Brilliant Uncirculated 1825/3 [48]. Among Liberty seated 
quarters an 1853 with arrows and rays [50] in BU grade 
fetched $775, and a coin of the following year, 1854 [679], 
brought a new record price of $650. A Brilliant Uncirculated 
1873 quarter with arrows [52 | sold for $500. 


“The reference books will have to be rewritten in view of 
the Terrell Collection results,” noted a spokesman for the 
American Auction Association. Prices such as $270 and $300 
realized for two 1879 BU quarters [689 and 690], $300 for a 
BU 1881 quarter [691], $375 for a BU 1882 [692] and $360 
for another of the same date [693], not to mention $430 for a 
BU 1885 [695] and $400 for a BU 1886 [696] point this out 

U.S. Half Dollars 

Half dollars appeared in several places throughout the large 
illustrated sale catalogue. Record prices established included 
$16,000 for the famous Westwood Collection example of the 
1797 half dollar [58] in AU grade, one of the very finest 
of this rare year known to exist. $4,800 for a BU 1801 [395 |, 
$2,300 for an Uncirculated 1803 [398 |, and $2,300 for an 
Uncirculated 1806 [59 | are other examples. 

Half dollar specialists will long remember the spectacular 
collection of that series which appeared in the Terrell 
Collection sale beginning with lot 392. Particularly memorable 
are the prices fetched by Liberty seated half dollars in choice 
condition. The following dates were all described in the 
catalogue as being Uncirculated: 1841-0 [476] $230; 1842 
small date [477] $500; 1845-0 without drapery [487] $650; 
1846 small date [488] $400; 1846 tall date [489] $700; 
1852-0 [504] $1,050; 1859-S [524] $412.50; 1862-S [532] 
$350; 1864 [535] $360; 1870-S [550] $500; 1871-CC [552; 
described as “with some bagmarks in field”] $3,200; 1873-S 
arrows [561] $1,700; 1874-CC arrows [563] $2600; 1874-S 
arrows [564] $900, plus several hundred dollars apiece for 
scarce Uncirculated issues of the 1880’s. 

Silver Dollars 

Among silver dollars we can cite record prices for $3,600 
for an AU 1795, type of ’94 [70]; $3,600 for a 1795 small 
eagle [71 ] in BU grade with some light rubbing; $4,500 for a 
sharply-struck Uncirculated 1802 [72]; $675 for a beautiful 
Proof 1866 [925]; and $6,800 for the extremely popular and 
very rare Proof 1895 [75 ] Morgan issue. 

Trade dollars were likewise very strong in the sale, with 
Uncirculated “S” mintmark coins of common dates bringing 
mostly in the $250 range, and with scarce dates and Proofs 
going higher. 

Gold Coins 

Gold coins in the American Auction Association event were 
highlighted by two prime rarities: the 1841 quarter eagle and 
the 1876 $3 issue. 

The 1841 quarter eagle, affectionately called “The Little 
Princess” by cataloguers over the years, was in Very Fine 
grade. Only six specimens are known in collectors’ hands. The 
coin, sold as lot 1009, fetched $10,050 and is now a part of a 
large eastern collection. 

Lot 1002 was described as: “1876 $3 gold. Brilliant Proof, a 
gem. This is the finest 1876 $3 we have ever owned. Usually 
Proofs of this date are seen in impaired form. The offering of a 
gem is very, very unusual...” This magnificent showpiece 
quickly found a new owner at $16,000 — a new record price 
for the rare 1876 date.

hardware supplies) tor use in the firm’s 1872-1972 centennial 
observation, featured many different regular and pattern 

A beautiful Proot example of the 1872 pattern Amazonian 
halt dollar [615] was knocked down for $4,000, thereby 
beating by $900 the previous price record of $3,100 set a year 
earlier in the American Auction Association sale of the 
Armand Champa Collection. The 1872 pattern Amazonian 
silver dollar went reasonably for $4,500. A string of 1872 
Barber pattern designs for gold coins commenced with an 
aluminum striking of an 1872 gold dollar [622] at $700 and 
concluded with an aluminum impression of Barber’s pattern 
double eagle [630] at $1,500. 

Coins of the World 

Coins of the world in the Terrell Collection sale comprised 
many different issues. Outstanding was a specialized collection 
of pieces with the portrait of Leopold I, “The Hogmouth,” of 
the Holy Roman Empire (Austria). Dealers and collectors from 
Germany, Austria, Japan, England, and other countries 
competed with their American brethren to set new price levels. 

Outstanding among the Leopold I coins were a double taler 
of Styria [1286] at $1,325; a 1684 taler of Silesia [1290], a 
1695 broad taler of Hungary [1305], a beautiful undated 
double taler of Nuremberg [1319] with a city scene on the 
reverse at $4,000, an undated double taler of Tirol [1323] at 
$1,100, and a very rare triple taler of Tirol [1326] at $1,300. 

An undated (year 1890) taler of Kwangtung Province of 
China [1378] fetched $220; a 1917-B Proof Egyptian 20 
piastres [1386] sold for $310; and an undated broad medallic 
taler of Lubeck [1401] sold for $225. 

The Terrell Collection offered some choice English crowns, 
the likes of which had not appeared on the market in a long 
time and which are not likely to appear again for a great 
duration. A 1656/4 Commonwealth crown [ 14271 was 
knocked down at $650, followed shortly by a 1706 crown in 
EF grade [1429] at $760. A 1732 pattern issue of George II 
[1431] fetched $1,400. The 1817 “Incorrupta” crown of 
George III [1432] set a new level at $1,775. An 1825 pattern 
silver crown of George IV [1434] realized $1,450. 

Particularly outstanding were three pattern crown issues of 
William IV. 1831 crowns are rare even in their most 
“common” form — as issued in the specimen Proof sets of that 
year. The Terrell Collection featured three very rare varieties, 
and the competition for them was intense. An 1831-dated 
variety with the name of the engraver, Wyon, spelled out 
[1435] sold for $4,000. Two undated 1831 crowns [1436 and 
1473] realized $7,700 and $7,650 respectively. 

Close on the heels of the 1831 pieces was an 1846 Gothic 
crown [1438], issued a year earlier than most Gothic pieces 
(which are dated 1847). This 1846 coin, a splendid Proof, 
found a new home at $3,650. A 1910 pattern crown [1443] 
brought $1,800, and a complete 1746 silver Proof set [1445] 
fetched $2,800. 

A date run of Japanese yen set some new values, including 
$450 for a piece of 1870 [1458], $1,400 for an 1874 issue 
[1459], and $2,900 for the rare 1879 [1460]. 

An 1841 Russian set of three coins commemorating the 
marriage of the future Alexander 1J to Maria brought $7,400, a 
new record. An 1888 15-kopeck piece [1516], described as 
one of only seven pieces struck, found a buyer in enthusiastic 
bidding competition at $520. Gold coins of the world saw a 
number of new record [trices, including $1,650 lor an 1851 


gold eight escudo piece of Bolivia [1545 | and $1,800 for a 
very rare Proof 1869 5 drachmai pattern issue of Greece 

In Conclusion 

The main consignor to the Terrell Collection sale, 
interviewed shortly after the event, had this to say: 

“Naturally I am delighted with the sale. The coins were fun 
to collect and to own, and I hope that the new buyers share 
my same enthusiasm for them. I bought the coins primarily as 
an investment, however—and now my problem is that it is 
difficult to think of any other investment which will compare 
to what these coins have done. Right now I am thinking of 
re-entering the coin field to build up another collection. 

“In reviewing the prices realized for my coins it is very 
obvious that any pieces which were of choice or selected 
quality brought high prices—record prices in most instances.” 

Following one of our additional questions the owner then 
continued by saying: “You ask me what advice I might have 
for other buyers, and here it is: Buy coins of selected quality, 
and buy from established dealers. I believe you say this in your 
own advertisements. You won’t go wrong.”
