United States Coin Company. CATALOGUE OF THE SUPERB COLLECTION OF UNITED STATES COINS BELONGING TO MALCOLM N. JACKSON OF BOSTON, MASS. ONE OF THE FINEST COLLECTIONS OF GOLD, SILVER AND COPPER COINS EVER SOLD IN THIS COUNTRY AND A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION OF PATTERN COINS. New York, May 20-22, 1913. 8vo, original blue embossed cloth decorated and lettered in gilt, patterned endpapers. (2), 92, (6) pages; 1940 lots; 16 fine photographic plates throughout. Prices realized list laid in. Near fine. The deluxe, plated issue of one of the most important sales ever of United States coins, especially of patterns and U.S. gold. The Jackson sale was Wayte Raymond's first major auction: that he was still in his twenties when he catalogued it is ample testimony to his skill even then. The 16 plates depict U.S. and private gold, silver dollars, early U.S. silver, large cents and half cents, and many of the patterns. As is unfortunately nearly always the case, the quality of the photographs is uneven, with some being excellent and others being somewhat over- or under-exposed. Still an impressive production, of much use in tracing provenance. Very scarce. Adams 5 (rated A+ overall, A in patterns, later silver and U.S. gold, A- in half cents, proofs and early silver). Davis 1072. Ex Fanning Sale I, lot 717. Ex Michael Spurlock library.
