New York: Bangs & Co., June 9-14, 1884. 4to, modern white cloth, gilt. 192 pages; 3727 lots; 12 fine photographic plates, tinted to approximate the metallic content of the items depicted, with original tissue guards; prices realized list bound in. Fine. Adams A+: "Excellent English: tokens and war medals. NE shilling. Clinton 1¢. Gem copper. Carrollton in silver, many other medals." An important and extensive collection with notable ancients, excellent English coins, tokens and war medals and numerous European rarities. The American portion is especially notable for its gem large cents, Washingtonia and historical medals. Visually, it is one of the most impressive of the Chapman series with its magnificent reproductions of beautiful oversize medals which, as well as the coins, are depicted in tints approximating the metallic colors and often appear to be three-dimensional. In the August, 1950 issue of The Numismatist, John Ford described the plates as "the finest I have ever seen in any catalog or numismatic book."
