In 1866 he proposed a journal for the ANS. This led to publication of the American Journal of Numismatics. He also contributed articles. He was Treasurer of the ANS May 9, 1867, to March 26, 1874.

His collections were included in several auction sales. One sale was scheduled for April 27-29, 1865. Because of the death of President Lincoln, the sale was postponed to May 29.
