Haseltine, John W. CATALOGUE OF JOHN W. HASELTINE'S TYPE TABLE OF U.S. DOLLARS, HALF DOLLARS & QUARTER DOLLARS, ALSO, MANY OTHER RARE AND FINE COINS, INCLUDING UNITED STATES AND FOREIGN GOLD; SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS; JACKSONIAN TOKENS; ANCIENT COINS; PATTERN PIECES; FRACTIONAL CURRENCY; CONFEDERATE BONDS; WAR ENVELOPES; AUTOGRAPHS; PROOF SETS; UNITED STATES CENTS AND HALF CENTS; COLONIALS, ETC. New York: Messrs. Bangs & Co., Nov. 28-30, 1881. 8vo, later brown half morocco, gilt. (4), 124 pages; 1920 lots. Near fine. In his prefatory remarks, Haseltine writes: "At a future time, if I should decide to issue a work upon this subject, each variety will be given a name to more easily distinguish it, and plates be given of those pieces that have but slight differences, in order that collectors could more readily determine them." This work, of course, never came to fruition, and the "Haseltine Type Table Catalogue" served as the standard work on die varieties for over half a century. In truth, the descriptions are so detailed and meticulous that a separate work on the topic, apart from the addition of plates, would have been largely redundant. Three separate works were ultimately required to supersede it (Browning, Beistle and Bolender) and it was not rendered entirely obsolete until 1950. Clain-Stefanelli 12292.
