Cogan, Edward. PRICED CATALOGUE OF THE PRIVATE COLLECTION OF UNITED STATES CENTS, THE PROPERTY OF EDWARD COGAN, SOLD AT HIS STORE BY PRIVATE BIDDINGS, THE 1ST NOVEMBER 1858. Philadelphia, 1863. 8vo, original printed wraps. (4) pages; (77) lots; printed prices realized. Folded for mailing; very good or so. The important 1863 printing of Edward Cogan’s first sale. As Adams explains (page 18), “The first four sales in the Cogan series are not catalogs in the standard sense; rather they are later... reprints from single manuscripts available in Cogan’s store. Local patrons used this list to scout for coins of their choice; bids in these cases were submitted in sealed envelopes which were all then opened on the appointed day.”
