Ron Guth on Coins 15 - A 1942 Exhibit of 500 Massachusetts Silver Coins


Multi-Media Summary

In 1942, the American Numismatic Society hosted an exhibit of approximately 500 Massachusetts Silver Coins dated circa 1652. The exhibition included loans from prominent collectors such as T. James Clarke, Carl Wurtzbach, and William B. Osgood Field (who owned a record number of eight New England Shillings and one New England Sixpence). The American Numismatic Society memorialized the exhibit in a photo album that currently resides in their collection and which has been made available on the Newman Numismatic Portal. For anyone interested in early American Colonial coins and, specifically, Massachusetts Silver coins, this video is a first look at this little-known photo album and exhibit.
