    John J. Ford, Jr. Collection of Coins, Medals and Currency, Part 15

    Highlight: The note price listings in Newman were placed there inadvertently (note similarity to the Halifax listings) and was noted in the cataloguing of the Pine Tree Elizabeth Morton Sale in October, 1975. The Morton sale featured the most comprehensive selection of North Carolina Colonial notes catalogued up to that time (112 lots). That auction, held amidst the frenzy for Bicentennial related numismatica such as Colonial coins and paper currency, had four denominations on this session date. However, the Ford-Boyd collection has seven denomi- nations of the authorized nine different. This is an amazing achievement for one collection. This might be one of the rarest denominations on the issue. The rarest is likely the Two Dollars with no vignette description in Newman and we have no data (though w

Additional selections from George Perkin’s Collection of Connecticut Coppers will be featured in Coin Galleries’ April Sale later this year. A note on Condition Census statements about state coppers. There is no published CC data for state coppers, as there is for Half Cents and Large Cents. All statements about the condition census for Connecticut, New Jersey, and Vermont coppers made here and in our other catalogues are based upon grades of specimens actually seen and how they compare to those of coins being catalogued and sold. The number of specimens seen is large, comprising over 4,000 Connecticuts, over 3,500 New Jersey’s, and nearly 1,700

Penned in a contemporary (19th century) hand at the left end wide margin is the following notation; "The plate of this note was found/ in the Treasury Department at /Richmond after the evacuation /by the rebels." With the period notation, quite an exceptional proof. Es- sentially as struck from the plate. Top and bottom margins closely cut.

    The Henry P. Kendall Foundation Collection

    Highlight: the example sold in Pine Trees Elizabeth Morton Sale: 90 at $4,850.00) on the same page 129 of the 5th Edition. This example, unique to our knowledge, last sold publicly at the 1977 Harley L. Ereeman Sale for $3,500.00. This was an extraordinary sum for a colonial era note in this period. An amazing note from one of the most popularly collected states for obsolete notes and National banknotes. This of course is of strong interest to obsolete private scrip collectors of the state and a unique colonial era issuer as well. The issuers history is shrouded in mystery. Ron Benice s additional historical research seems to preclude the possible attribution the notes were prepared for British agents Panton, Leslie & Co.
