    David Lange submitted these thoughts on two recent E-Sylum articles. -Editor

    I want to extend my thanks to John Lupia and Ron Haller-Williams for sharing what they'd learned about A. C. Roessler. I'm always amazed at how many hobby figures who were so well known in the past can be utterly forgotten today. It demonstrates once again that The E-Sylum is the place to go for picking the brains of the best and brightest in our field.

    Highlight: a well-known colonial coin dealer mentioned to me that PCGS was contemplating the establishment of a Colonial Coin Registry Set. Then, the following year, at the San Francisco ANA C4 meeting, someone introduced himself as the PCGS Colonial Coin Registry Set winner. Frankly, I did not take too much notice of either event, but upon reviewing the PCGS web site, I found that there are 61 different options for Colonial Coin Registry Sets! They range from simple State -issue Type Sets to a comprehensive Type and Major Variety Set. One of the “benefits” of being a Registry Set member is that you can post your set (with pictures if desired) and have it compared by grade and rarity to other sets and the PCGS determined greatest sets of all times.

    Highlight: From the Carolina Colonial Coinurfaces with overall bold definition to a well centered strike. Scattered marks and light surface build up are noted, but both sides are fairly tight with a hard glossy texture.

    Highlight: THE COLONIAL COIN & STAMP COMPANY http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v13n41a20.html Dave Lange submitted these thoughts on the Colonial CoinEditor I've enjoyed Harvey Stack's stories about the coin business in New York. In his list of dealers active there during the 1930s he mentioned all those well known today, but he omitted one name that was prominent at the time and since forgotten. When I was researching my book on coin boards, one of the publishers was Colonial Coin & Stamp Company of NYC. These were the Cadillacs of coin boards, with clear cellophane backings that showed both sides of the coins. The owner of CC&S Co. was Leiser W. Schnelling. While NYC directories of the years 1935-40 included all of the dealers mentioned by Harvey, the largest ad

    The November 2016 Baltimore Auction, Early American Coins

    Highlight: From the Carolina Colonial Coin Collection. Earlier from our (Bowers and Merenas) Pennsylvania Cabinet sale, November 1997, lot 4. 5012 1722 Rosa Americana Halfpenny. Martin 3.3-C.l, W-1222. Rarity-5. DEI GRATIA REX / UTILE DULCI. AU-55 (PCGS). This boldly defined example displays areas of brassy gold color on otherwise antique copper surfaces. The obverse is trivially drawn toward 6 o’clock, affecting only the denticulation from 4 to 7 o’clock, while the reverse is nicely centered. Generally smooth with considerable gloss, there is a swirl of variegated color at the lower right obverse border that is associated with a somewhat rough texture in that area. All in all a pleasing representative of this distinct type of 1722 Rosa Americana halfpenny, the legends presented as outlined above.

Bowers and Merena lot tag included. 5016 1722 Rosa Americana Penny. Martin 2.11-C.8, W-1264. Rarity-5. UTILE DULCI. EF-45 (PCGS). The deep steel brown patina of this Rosa Americana penny supports glints of lighter brassy-gold in isolated areas. The strike is nicely centered and sharp with the devices retaining predominantly bold definition and showing only light wear. The appearance is relatively smooth; the surfaces are trivially rough with only a single noteworthy mark in the upper right reverse field. A handsome piece with much to offer collectors o

Martin 2.1-Bc.4, W-Unlisted. Rarity-4. DEI. GRATIA. REX. AU-58 (PCGS). 61.9 grains. Both the obverse and reverse fields are bright, reflective and modestly semi-prooflike in appearance. Light brown with iridescent blue highlights for the obverse, the reverse an equally attractive golden-brown with subtle blue-gray overtones here and there around the periphery. Surface texture is mostly smooth with a hard, tight appearance to the unaided eye. Late obverse die state with a prominent break through the word GRATIA that includes sizeable breaks at the letters G and, to a lesser extent, RAT. A few other more delicate peripheral cracks

Faper envelope included. 5055 French Colonies. 1741/39-BB Sou Marque. Strasbourg Mint. Vlack-252b. Rarity-4. AU-55 (PCGS). A fairly common issue for the type, but in uncommon condition, in fact a lovely example. Both sides exhibit bright silver-rose patina, the surfaces a trifle granular on both sides, but not disturbingly so. The obverse and reverse are both perfectly centered. The flan is a little smaller than usually seen on these, but the dies have been accommodated perfectly with all devices and legends fully on the planchet. Struck from a broken state

Lot tag and collector tag with attribution notation included. 5070 1788 Massachusetts Half Cent. Ryder 1-B, W-6010. Rarity-2. AU-50 (PCGS). Copper-rose patina to the obverse, the reverse exhibits subtle reddish highlights to a base of warmer medium brown. A few minor toning spots are scattered about, some verdigris and surface build up at the digits 88 in the date also noted for accuracy. Struck from a median reverse die state, the crack from the lower border through the final digit 8 is just beginning to form. With overall bold definition and a pleasingly original appearance, this piece is particularly well suited for inclusion in a high grade

George III Type, Puffy Head. VF-20. 129.1 grains.

    Highlight: evaluating error coins can be problematic since an in-depth knowledge of the whole process associated with colonial coin minting is needed. A modern approach touted as a major aid for the novice coin collector, as well as the coin investor, is the use of a third party rating company with encapsulation of the colonial coin. Hard-core colonial coin collectors have met this approach with nearly universal disdain, but encapsulation continues unabated. Most colonial collectors will remove an encapsulated coin from its slab once they buy it, and at every colonial coin club meeting there are fiiendly dealers who will show you how to remove slabbed coins without injuring them. I was the fortunate purchaser of lot #5383 in the September 23, 1999 Long Beach Heritage Numismatic Auction. The lot was

    The November 2016 Baltimore Auction, Early American Coins

    Highlight: From the Carolina Colonial Coin Collection. Earlier from our (Bowers and Merenas) Pennsylvania Cabinet sale, November 1997, lot 8. 5031 1723/2 Wood’s Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.60-Da. 1, W- 12850. Rarity-2. AU-50 (PCGS). Blended reddish- brown and orange-copper patina greets the viewer from both sides of this nicely centered and generally bold example. Softness of strike is generally reserved for the central reverse, the details of which are largely indistinct with a somewhat rough texture from the original planchet surface. A bit rough at the base of the obverse portrait, as well, with concentrations of light scratches evident on King Georges cheek and in the reverse field at the letter E in HIBERNIA. In addition to a bold over date with the 2 underdigit readily evident to the unaided

Nelson-2, Zelinka 4-B, W-13820. Rarity-3. VF-30 (PCGS). 109.2 grains. A handsome piece with blended golden and olive-brown patina to predominantly smooth surfaces. Problem free for the grade, in fact, with natural planchet roughness on the reverse at the letter R in HIBERNIA, small flan flaw on the reverse border outside the letter N, and light encrustation in the protected areas around many of the design elements, especially the digits in the date. The obverse impression is off center at 2 o’clock,

Nelson- 12, Zelinka 15-N, W-13950. Rarity-3. P in Front of Face. VF-30 (PCGS). 136.6 grains. Deep charcoal-copper fields with lighter golden-brown devices. Struck off center to 9 o’clock on the obverse, 3 o’clock on the reverse, although only the tops of the letters lA in HIBERNIA are involved. The overall definition is exceptionally sharp, in fact, more so than one might expect given the Choice VF grade from PCGS. Both sides exhibit considerable gloss and appear smooth to the unaided eye. A loupe reveals trivial roughness in the form of light surface scale that, however, has blended quite nicely into the overall texture

    Highlight: From the Carolina Colonial Coin Collection. Earlier from our (Bowers and Merenas) Rogers M. Fred, Jr. and Peter A. Ward, M.D. Collections sale, November 1995, lot 3011.

A universally sharp example with superior definition even to the eye in the center of the obverse. The overall detail is suggestive of an AU grade, in fact, although areas of surface roughness due to porosity probably explain why PCGS opted for a net grade of EF- 40. The most significant porosity is evident on the obverse, especially toward the lower left and upper right borders. Otherwise light brown in color, with a tinge of pale rose to the reverse, the amount of detail alone makes

Blended golden-brown and olive-gray patina over hard, satiny surfaces. Minor roughness from the original planchet texture is associated with softness of strike to the eye in the center of the obverse. The balance of the devices are sharply defined. Shallow flan flaw from 8 o’clock on the obverse border, a more minor one on the reverse between the letters lA in JUSTITIA. Typical reverse die state with a break within the lower wreath, scarce early obverse die state without the extensive rusting usually see

EF-40 (ICG). A well defined piece with bold EF detail. Both sides are predominantly medium brown in appearance, the surfaces microgranular with an area of considerable roughness at the lower right obverse border. A swirl of crimson is evident in that area, another at the top of the eagle’s right wing on the reverse. Tiny reverse rim nick at 9 o’clock, a concentration of light scratches along the lower right border on the same side. The in hand appeal is quite strong, nonetheless, providing

The reverse is sinking, as typically seen for the variety, but this coin was struck before clashing and also lacks the incuse impressions usually noted for Miller 5.3-N. This is a scarce die state for the variety, in fact, here represented by a relatively pleasing VF. PCGS# 334. From the Carolina Colonial Coin Collection. Earlier

    Highlight: From the Carolina Colonial Coin Collection. Purchased from John Kraljevich, May 16, 2009. 5089 1776 Machin’s Mills Halfpenny. Ylack 6-76A, W-7790. Rarity-4. GEORGIYS III, Group III. YF-30 (PCGS). This is an overall boldly defined example with a pleasing blend of medium brown and reddish-copper patina. The strike is ever so slightly off center toward the upper obverse and lower reverse borders, but the peripheral devices in those areas are hardly affected. Ancient surface build up around the obverse periphery is noted for accuracy, as are a few trivial handling marks to King Georges cheek and light planchet roughness in the center of the reverse. Relatively smooth otherwise, and with the added appeal of the 1776 date, this coin is sure to win many adherents among specialists in early
