Downey, Sheridan. MAIL BID SALE NO. 9. FEATURING SELECTIONS FROM THE AL C. OVERTON REFERENCE COLLECTION OF UNITED STATES BUST HALF DOLLARS, 1794–1836. Oakland, July 30, 1993. 4to, original black cloth-backed pictorial card covers. (4), iii, 51, (4) pages including 5 plates of half dollars; 394 lots. Near fine. Of considerable importance. Described in the catalogue as “the most exciting sale of Bust Half Dollars in the history of numismatics,” the Overton collection sale never took place, as the collection was sold shortly before the mail-bid sale was to be held. Accounting for the present scarcity of this catalogue, Downey has noted that, because of the deal, “I stopped the press run of the catalogue at 400 copies.”
