American Numismatic Society. EXHIBITION OF UNITED STATES AND COLONIAL COINS, JANUARY SEVENTEENTH TO FEBRUARY EIGHTEENTH, 1914. CATALOGUE. New York, 1914. 8vo, later pebbled russet cloth, gilt; all page edges speckled. vii, (1), 133, (1) pages; frontispiece; 39 plates of coins. Near fine. An unparalleled exhibition of rare American coins from the finest contemporary collections. The illustrations are keyed to the various owners (Würtzbach, Hillyer Ryder, Granberg, Woodin, Ellsworth, French, etc.) making this work invaluable for tracing pedigrees. The exhibition was especially rich in American colonial coins, rare regular issues, patterns and private gold coins. Four 1804 silver dollars were depicted, belonging at the time to Newcomer, Granberg and Ellsworth (2). Würtzbach's colonials and Woodin's magnificent patterns are also extensively illustrated. In a 1926 list of books for sale, Guttag Brothers termed this the "Million Dollar Book," high praise indeed considering coin values at the time. Clain-Stefanelli 11869.
