Raymond, Wayte. IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF GOLD COINS FORMED BY THE LATE GIOVANNI P. MOROSINI. CHIEFLY ITALIAN AND OTHER EUROPEAN RARITIES, BELONGING TO THE ESTATE OF THE LATE GIULIA P. MOROSINI. New York: American Art Association Sale Number 3985, October 10, 1932. 8vo, original tan card covers. (8), 107, (3) pages; 374 lots; very well illustrated. Near fine. An outstanding sale. Morosini formed a remarkable coin collection but, coming to sale in the depths of the Great Depression, the results, totaling $20,162.50, were generally poor. Many of the gold coins sold near bullion value. The sale also included a few notable American medals, including a medium-size Jefferson Indian Peace Medal, a Thos. Macdonough medal in silver, a Palmetto Regiment medal in gold and an 1829 Jackson Indian Peace Medal. Adams 15, rated A- overall. Clain-Stefanelli 8009.
