Two of the magnificent plates depict American colonial coins; two illustrate medals; one depicts patterns; three illustrate private gold coins; one depicts half cents and other rare coins; three illustrate large cents; and the final plate depicts presidential and political medals. Adams A: “Higleys (9). Brasher doubloon. Silver peace medals. Fabulous pioneer gold (Humbert’s collection). Excellent medals.”
