Joseph, Nathan. PRINTED AND ILLUSTRATED DOUBLE-SIDED CIRCULAR, SIGNED, OFFERING REPLICA CALIFORNIA GOLD PIECES. San Francisco, undated [after 1910]. Single sheet [36 by 21.5 cm] printed on both sides; top recto features illustrations, tinted in gold, of twenty coins; signed in ink by Joseph on the verso. Paper a bit brittle, with minor cracking where folded for mailing. Near fine. A highly interesting item from this well-known manufacturer of replica California gold. Nathan Joseph was active from the 1880s to 1920s, and this circular dates from the latter years of his career. Joseph claims kinship to the original makers of California fractional gold, and boasts that his are the “smallest, best designed and most artistically executed souvenir gold coins in existence.”
