Chapman, Henry. ADMINISTRATOR’S SALE: CATALOGUE OF THE COLLECTION OF MAGNIFICENT SPECIMENS OF AMERICAN COLONIAL, STATE AND UNITED STATES COINS AND MEDALS IN GOLD, SILVER AND COPPER. NEW YORK BRASHER’S DOUBLOON 1787, PAPER MONEY AND NUMISMATIC BOOKS OF THE LATE A.W. JACKMAN, PLOUGHKEEPSIE, NEW YORK. New York, Anderson Galleries, June 28-29, 1918. 4to, modern white cloth; gilt-printed card covers mounted on boards in style of the original. (4), 76, (8) pages; 1141 lots; 9 reprint plates taken from original negatives. Prices realized list bound in. Front cover scuffed; Contents fine. A well-executed production combining the original catalogue and prices realized list with new reprint plates taken from the original glass negatives, the whole well-bound in the likeness of the originals. The quality of the reprinted plates actually exceeds that of the originals. This “reprint,” and a similar edition of the June 1918 Bement sale, used original copies of the sale that had been part of the hoard of Chapman catalogues found in the Henry Chapman estate and the photographic negatives (which were in John Ford’s possession). Perhaps as few as 20 copies were reproduced. The Jackman sale is important for early American material and for large cents, featuring any number of rarities and spectacular coins. Adams 36 (rated A overall, and for large cents, half cents and colonials in particular). As usual, Plate 7 is partially overexposed. Clain-Stefanelli 12183. See Davis 209.
