Chapman, S.H. CATALOG OF THE COLLECTION OF GOLD, SILVER & COPPER COINS OF THE UNITED STATES OF ARTHUR SARGENT, ESQ., BOSTON. Philadelphia: S.T. Freeman & Co., Auctioneers, June 20, 1913. 8vo, modern white cloth and boards, gilt, in the style of the original. (2), 45, (1) pages; 732 lots; 9 very fine photographic plates. Near fine. A truly memorable Chapman sale of United States large cents and other pieces. Six of the unusually fine, crisp, well-exposed plates depict coppers, which, Chapman averred, "will make the plate catalog a most valuable and important one to the collector of cents." The assemblage was summarized by Chapman as comprising "a splendid collection of cents, many in extraordinary condition and with a great series of Cents of 1794 including a new reverse die and two varieties unknown to Hays and a new combination unpublished; uncirculated specimens of 1795, 1796, 1797, 1798, an excellent 1799, uncirculated specimens of 1800, 2, 3, 1809, 1821, 1823 perfect date, of which last only one other specimen is known in this preservation, etc." Of the remaining three plates, one illustrates rare American gold coins, and the other two depict United States silver dollars, mainly patterns, along with a few rare Massachusetts colonial silver coins. The plates in this sale are among the best of the Chapman series. Adams 11. Clain-Stefanelli 12420. Davis 221. Ex Dennis Mendelson library (Kolbe Sale 52), lot 87.
