    The D. Brent Pogue Collection, Masterpieces of United States Coinage, Part IV

    Highlight: The James B. Wilson collection was renowned for its fine quality and antiquity, having been largely formed in the 1880s. This coin was among those singled out by Thomas L. Elder in the catalog’s introduction. When Elder offered Wilson’s extraordinary cabinet in 1908, this coin was acquired by Albert Holden, Emery May Norweb’s father. It remained in the Norweb family collection for 80 years. When it resurfaced in 1988, it was described by Chris Napolitano in the pages of The Gobrecht Journal as “an incredible 1836 restrike dollar, conservatively graded PF-65.” Today, it is among the finest known survivors in either private or institutional hands, and is the single finest example seen by PCGS. PCGS Population: l,none finer. (1836 Judd-58) Publications: Hodder, Michael and Bowers, Q. David.

    Highlight: THE JAMES B. WILSON COLLECTION. The sale of the Collection of the late James B. Wilson, Esq., which took place on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of October last, was one of more than usual interest to collectors. The Catalogue, 74 pages and 1409 lots, was very carefully prepared by Mr. Thomas L. Elder, of New York, and its handsome pages gave very full descriptions of the more attractive pieces, with occasional notes on their previous history. Many of them brought “ record prices,” and in connection with a number of these Mr. Elder has kindly furnished the Journal with notes, giving the amounts originally paid for them, when purchased by Mr. Wilson. We quote a few of the prices obtained, with comments based on these notes. An Eagle of 1797, with standing eagle reverse, obverse die slightly cracked,

    Public auction sale of remarkably fine collections of rare coins ... [05/16/1923]

    Highlight: The first specimen offered at public auction since our sale of the James B. Wilsoned half dollar. We are very skeptical of the so-called / ^ 1853 Half Dollar “without rays or arrows.” The only one of it we ever saw was Granbergs, which was by no means a very fine specimen and bore many traces of wear, which also lends doubt to its origin. It had come to him from the DeWitt Smith collec- tion. The specimen of the 1838 sold at our James B. Wilson sale in 19 08 under spirited bidding. We look for a worlds record for a half

    The Keusch, Snow, & Del Zorro Collections

    Highlight: It was plated in the Thomas Elder sale catalogue of the superb collection formed by James B. Wilson, and described by Elder as follows, "1822. Wide date. Splendid steel-colored proof. Very bold, even impression with strong milling. Perfection. Very rare. Bought at high cost in 1883." Unfortunately, Elder did not identify the 1883 provenance (the attribution to the Erothingham sale comes from large cent specialist Denis Coring), nor the "high price" specifically, but it brought a hefty $31 in the 1908 Wilson sale. It has not been offered publicly for the better part of a decade, and the present appearance is thus an important opportunity to secure the piece for another advanced collection.

    Highlight: The auction sale of the fine collection of the late James B. Wilson, cata- logued by Mr. Tomas L. Elder, held at the Collectors Club New York, October 5th, 6 th, and 7th, was in several respects ihe most notable sale of coins held in New York for many years. Many members of the A. N.

The notable lot (346) of the first days sale was the O under bust 1838 half dollar. Spirited bidding led the price to $570 at which Mr. Elder pur- chased it for an unannounced buyer. Mr. V. M.
