Christie’s. CATALOGUE OF ENGLISH, FOREIGN AND IMPORTANT AMERICAN COINS, THE PROPERTY OF MAJOR THE LORD ST. OSWALD, M.C. REMOVED FROM NOSTELL PRIORY, WAKEFIELD, YORKSHIRE. London, Oct. 13, 1964. 8vo, original printed card covers. 28, (2), (2) pages; 177 lots; 4 fine plates. Photocopy of prices realized list, with buyers’ names, laid in. Fine. Acquired as mementos of a trip to America at the end of the 18th century, the great importance and superb condition of the run of 1794 large cents and the 1794 and 1795 silver coins (including two mint state 1794 dollars) in this noteworthy sale were not fully appreciated by Christie’s at the time. Consequently, the print run was not large and copies of this remarkable catalogue are infrequently available and in great demand.
