Unique Washington 50¢. MS 1793 1¢ (5). MS 1811 1/2¢." A collection abounding in rare colonials and silver and copper United States coins. Four of the plates depict the especially notable large cents, which are remarkable for their outstanding condition, and three depict many of the choice colonials. The remaining two plates illustrate Jackman's superb half cents and assorted rare early American silver and gold coins. Of the collector, Chapman notes: "Mr. Allison W. Jackman was a highly cultured gentleman who devoted his life to study, having never engaged in business and being a most devoted son with an equally appreciative mother, his collecting was a pleasure to them both. Born in 1849, he early began collecting coins, which is testified to by notes in his Numismatic diary where he mentions having bought this or that in the early '60's and his interest never ceased. Here therefore, truly is a life work and how well he has mastered it is shown by the coins..." A purely American sale excepting lots 1142-1156 of ancient coins--mostly unimportant Roman Imperial bronzes--separately issued as a single-sheet addenda. Early copies of the catalogue were issued without this supplement but it was apparently tipped into all plated catalogues. Clain-Stefanelli 12000 and 12183. Davis 209.
