    Harrington Manville

    The Asylum, Fall 1994

    1/10/1994

    Highlight: Harrington Manville is retired from the U.S. Foreign Service and is the author of two bibliographies published by Spink & Son. Col Bill Murray is a frequent contributor to the numismatic press; Bill Yost is a private businessman from California and has been a coin collector for 35 years. From the Editor Fred Lake writes: “On January 7, the Southeast region of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society held a meeting during the annual Florida Numismatists convention in Orlando. The informal meeting was presided over by Fred Lake, regional coordinator, and was attended by Charles Horning, Brad Karoleff, Ed Price, Jan Monroe, John Wilson, John Esbach, Jack Harvey, Eugene Stemlicht, Jon Warshawsky, George Fitzgerald, Terry Stahurski, Tom Smith, and O.T.

At the right are photos of coins of this type — the upper ones showing the Langmuir/Paisley Dollar as it was issued, and below, showing it with countermarks. Now, to the amazing conclusion. I was given a listing of the known dated specimens, and recognizing that the U.S. 1804 Dollar is numismatically famous, it turns out that our specimen is the first known — and only one with the date of 1804. How about that ! Above, the obverse which shows “Payable by

    Douglas Saville writes:

    Harry Manville passed away last Wednesday – that is 18th February. He was 85 years old. He was incredibly well-respected and totally indefatigable in his efforts in numismatics. Ironically there was a little article about his library and the fact that I was handling it (I had purchased it last year) in Coin News and published only last week. It was very sad that Harry never saw the article.

    The Asylum, Summer 1994

    1/7/1994

    Highlight: I will be willing to bet that most NBS’ers are not familiar with Harrington Manville ’s series in progress, the Encyclopedia of British Numismatics. The first volume British Numismatic Auction Catalogues, 1710-1984, was published in 1986 and is now out of print. In a nutshell it is a combination of Adams and Gengerke for British sale catalogues, but it covers vastly more material given its time frame. For tracing pedigrees of early American coins, as well as less important things as 1804 silver dollars and the occasional proof gold coin, it is indispensable. Now comes Mr. Manville’s latest offering. To my mind, it is far more ambitious than the first volume in the series. In his Numismatic Guide to British and Irish Periodicals, Mr. Manville has set out to list every reference to

While many of the lots did not carry especially high estimates, this sale was truly a numismatist's delight as many popular, truly scarce and important references were featured in this sale of tire Katens' reference library'. Many of the titles, though carrying low estimates, had only appeared rarely in the marketplace. Among the highlights of the first session were Woodward's 96th sale, devoted to a sale of books; Lyman Low's 1895 Observations on the Practice of Counterfeiting, a scarce 1895 AJN offprint; a rare copy of Meld's Star Coin Book Junior, an excellent copy of Prime's 1861 Coins, Medals, and Seals, an 1862 constitution of the Numismatic Society of Montreal; George Hill's 1927 Select Greek Coins; the 1965-1967 reprint ofNeumann's German work on world-wide

    The Asylum, July-December 2010

    1/7/2010

    Highlight: Harrington Manville presented two very rare British jour- nals to the library. These were The Numismatic Quarterly, published at Bury St. Edmunds in 1881, and The Numismatist, published at Ac- crington, Lancashire, 1889-1890. The Library now has complete runs of both these short-lived periodicals. The year 2002 also saw the acquisition of the John S. Davenport Numismatic Archives. Along with original typescripts and page proofs of Davenport’s works, the archive included a considerable correspon- dence between Davenport and many of the leading numismatists both in the United States and abroad during the latter half of the past cen- tury. Another archive acquired, which came as a generous donation from the estate of Mrs. Henrietta Chapman Judson, consisted of a substan- tial quantity of the

    America's Silver Dollars: Coinage of the Americas Conference Proceedings No. 9

    /1995

    Highlight: 25 Harrington Manville is doubtful of the authenticity of this piece; he has written: TheJ. & J. W. Hurlet mark of the Copperas Coal Co. in Hurlet, Renfrewshire was discovered only in 1951 but in the next twenty years at least ten specimens have appeared — from two different dies and including one on an American dollar. Although one or both types may have been produced in early in the nineteenth century, their sudden appearance in several varieties is, at the least, suspicious. 26 Brunk, on the other hand, has said that “the countermark that includes a triangle of three dots is almost certainly original.” 27 The United States dollar does have this triangle of three dots.

My main point is that at least a few people interested in medals are not sure which came first. It does not stretch credulity to suggest that the accomplished Thomason, who contemplated subjects ranging from the Bible to volcanoes to illustrate on medals, might have read about the Erie Canal and its tradition and created the elegant motifs. If he copied them from C.C. Wright, that is okay too. It would be very interesting to see which reached PRINT first. An analogous situation might be drawn to the Washington / Lafayette counter stamps of 1 824. Everybody and his brother, including me, attributed the counter stamp to

    Highlight: Others included Harrington Manville, an expert on things British who bid for others, usually getting three or four bidder numbers; Phil Carrigan, who has become a very enthusiastic literature collector and a very good friend; and the partners from Money Tree, Ken Lowe and Myron Xenos. Ken absolutely loved numismatic literature. His early death was a tragedy for numismaticditerature collecting. In the 1990S, though still spry at 90'plus years of age, Frank decided to wind down his business with a series of sales of his own material. These were sales 76-81. I attended all these sales except one. That was due to weather, icy roads. I was a successful bidder at all these sales. Some of these sales had thousands of lots, so Frank devised a interesting way to make sure the sale did not drag on.

We were sorry to read about his death in The E-Sylum. He was an old friend of ours but we had been out of touch for some years. He was in the U.S. diplomatic corps as mentioned in his obituary, but he was also in other government services. We were at a show in Silver Spring and we went into Washington to meet him. He wanted to show us certain things, but after a while he told us that he had to leave us and we could not follow him. I suspect that he was called to one of those intelligence service offices. He was interested in me because I can read Anglo-Saxon and its special script, and Middle English and its various scripts, to aid him in

Harry and I were great corresponding friends in the 1980's and 1990's. We each collected mis-struck milled English coins. I specialized in coppers (Charles II to William IIII); he in silver pieces (Charles II to George III). Brockages and dramatic Double Strikes were our 'thing'. Over the years, he alerted me when an interesting copper piece showed up for sale in the UK (like my double-struck Cartwheel penny); I wrote to him when a double-struck George III half crown appeared in San Francisco, etc. From time to time, he mentioned other areas of interest. He collected the rare silver Gunmoney pieces, for example. I always read his letters

    America's Silver Dollars: Coinage of the Americas Conference Proceedings No. 9

    /1995

    Highlight: 25 Harrington Manville is doubtful of the authenticity of this piece; he has written: TheJ. & J. W. Hurlet mark of the Copperas Coal Co. in Hurlet, Renfrewshire was discovered only in 1951 but in the next twenty years at least ten specimens have appeared — from two different dies and including one on an American dollar. Although one or both types may have been produced in early in the nineteenth century, their sudden appearance in several varieties is, at the least, suspicious. 26 Brunk, on the other hand, has said that “the countermark that includes a triangle of three dots is almost certainly original.” 27 The United States dollar does have this triangle of three dots.

    Highlight: Harrington Manville, agrees with Brian’s historical analysis of when and by whom the St. Patrick coppers were struck but dis- agrees with his claim that they were struck with a collar that marked the edges during striking. The reviewer also takes exception to refer- ences that the gold and silver pieces were intended for circulation. Brian responded to the review with a papertitled “St. Patrick Coinage Revisited.” This paper follows the review and presents in-depth counter argumentstoManville’sassertions.

    Highlight: A close reading of Harrington Manville's epic work (2001) on the monetary stamps impressed by merchants on the foreign silver coins circulating in the British Isles at the same time as Spence's countermarked coins is instructive. Manville notes that a number of merchant monetary counter- marks no longer are know despite documentary evidence in contemporary newspapers that they had been issued. The same apparently is true of the Spencean System countermark. REEERENCES Bell, R. C. 1965. "Thomas Spence, World's First Socialist," World Coins 1965: 135147. Brunei, Christopher. 1972.

    John J. Ford, Jr. Collection of Coins, Medals and Currency, Part 7

    Highlight: Harrington Manville notes in his British Numismatic Auction Catalogues (1986) that collector Charles A. Watters, also a Liverpudlian, bought part of it privately in the spring of 1917, just before Watters’ second and last auction sale of his own coins in May of that year. Manville reports that Nelson gave the balance of his coins to the Liverpool Museum. Watters did not sell the coins he bought from Nel- son at auction (Scott Rubin reports that the 1917 Glendinings’ sale catalogue of Watters’ collection only includes some indifferent Hibernias and none provenanced to Nelson), so a portion of Nelson’s collection as of 1917 is cur- rently untraced. Nelson may have sold another portion of his collection, consisting of Hibernia halfpence and farthings, in a pri- vate treaty sale at least three

    Highlight: Harrington Manville, on Wednesday, April 4th. . . . . . An intriguing selection of slides illustrated many of the pieces in the speaker s own collection and served to underline the various points unusual “issues". In the main all countermarks discussed were those which had appeared on Spanish Dollars, circulated in this country. If one was tempted to wonder why advertisements should be struck on coins that, after all, could hardly have been regarded as the most likely issues to reach the general public, one could not fail to be fascinated by the fact that they had existed and, apparently in very limited quantities. Needless to say, although relatively little interest had previously been shown in such types, most were now extremely high-priced. In some cases, the origin of the countermarks
