New Netherlands Coin Company, with Numismatic Fine Arts, Hans M.F. Schulman and Henry Grunthal. 1952 ANNUAL NATIONAL CONVENTION OF THE AMERICAN NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION, OFFICIAL PUBLIC AUCTION SALE. New York, Aug. 16-21, 1952. Small 4to, original printed card covers. (7), 158, (3) pages; 4880 lots; 48 plates. Prices realized list laid in. Fine. Possibly the finest ANA convention sale. Conducted jointly by four different firms, the New Netherlands material tends to receive the most attention, including as it does the Homer K. Downing large cents and selections from his library. John J. Ford, Jr. claimed to have done much editing of the other three firms' material, in addition to his work on the New Netherlands section. Cataloguing the Downing large cents was the first job Walter Breen did for New Netherlands. Other material includes the Gibbs Canadian, Rumbel's patterns and Lesher dollars, Wayte Raymond's assay medals, and coins of the world. A classic sale (rated A+ overall by Adams). Adams 38 (under New Netherlands) and 10 (under Schulman). Davis 779.
