A major early sale of patterns. Adams notes in the foreword to the sale that “the government by its recent action in restoring to Mr. John Haseltine the lot of patterns taken from him last year has established a clear title to pattern pieces, collectors may acquire such coins without the misgivings and uncertainty that formerly attended such purchases. ... It is not unreasonable to predict that patterns will advance in value at least 100 per cent, within the ensuing year.” A very rare catalogue.
