    medicina in nummis

    The Numismatic Review

    1/9/1943

    Highlight: e interest in collecting medical medals already had become by that time. However, until our day, collections like that of Duisburg or Kluiskens were unique. The auction catalogue of the Duisburg Collection, which after his death (1868) was sold in Danzig on Nov. 2, 1869, is of special interest. There were 1,357 lots sold, 2 coin cabinets and 315 numismatic books. Of the coins and medals, 875 were medicina in nummis. This catalogue is of special significance to collectors, since to a certain extent, it appraises the then current estimation of the pieces. The book of Pfeiffer and Ruland "Pestillentia in Nummis” made further progress in the sys- tematization of the collection of medical medals. For generations of collectors, this famous book, printed in 1882 in Tuebingen, was the bible of their study; but beca

    The Numismatic Review

    1/9/1943

    Highlight: September, 19 4 3 31 Also noteworthy is the wonderful collection of the Trieste oculist, Dr. Josef Brettaur, bequeathed after his death in 1905 to Vienna University (1907). A scientifically-styled comprehensive catalogue of this collection, also entitled "Medicina in Nummis,” was published in Vienna by Dr. E. Holzmair in 1937. This collection — probably the largest of medicina in nummis accumulatemedicina in nummis,” was published in Vienna by Dr. E. Holzmair in 1937. This collection — probably the largest of medicina in nummis accumulated by one collector — contained 5,557 pieces. The catalogue has but 25 illustrative cuts. Lastly, I shall make mention of the famous American physician and scholarly numismatist, H. R. Storer, who was born in 1830 in Boston and came from a family of renowned physicians. Dr.

There are other idiosyncrasies: “ju- gate” is spelled “jugata” throughout; sometimes an item greater than 25 mm is called a “medalet”; he uses the word “copies” for pieces or specimens. 18.

    The Token, America's Other Money (COAC #10)

    /1995

    Highlight: piece slightly finer than the Sager coin dated 1838. The story might have ended here, but it didn’t. At the Coinage of the Americas Conference on October 29, 1994, following a presentation related to this present article, there was a question- and-answer period. Dr. George Fuld commented rather casually that G.G.G. coins were listed in Horatio Storer’s book published more than a half century ago, medicina in nummis. 12 When I returned home, I secured a copy by mail from the American Numismatic Association Library in Colorado Springs. Lo and behold! Storer iden- tified G.G.G. as his No. 7446, “Godwin’s [s/c] Grand Grease Juice (for the hair), USA.”! This goes to show that history, and, often, numismatic research, goes in circles! Storer cited the appearance of the mark on a large cent dated 1836 and a quarte

    The Token, America's Other Money (COAC #10)

    /1995

    Highlight: mmary Fearing that trivial details might get out of hand, I propose to stop giving citations at this point, and to summarize the situation: 1. Two United States one-cent pieces are known to me, one dated 1838 and the other 1840, stamped with the inscription ‘’USE / GOODWINS / GRAND / GREASE JUICE / FOR THE HAIR / G.G.G.” In addition, Storer recorded an 1836-dated cent when he did his research for medicina in nummis. 2. Numerous cents and other coins are known stamped with the inscriptions “USE / G.G.G.’’ and “USE / G.G.G. / & / G.G.G.G.,” the latest of which is dated 1857. 3. The counterstamping of the “USE / G.G.G.’’ and “USE / G.G.G. / 8t / G.G.G.G.” pieces probably took place circa 1854-57. The counterstamping of the “USE / GOODWIN’S / GRAND / GREASE JUICE / FOR THE HAIR / G.G.G.’’ pieces took place in 1

    Highlight: Military Medicine in Coins and Medals.? Not only did MG Pearn?s article interest me, but his 46 references, a number not unusual in a scholarly publication, included some I consider worthy of attempting to locate (another project!). Not surprisingly Australian and English documentation comprised most of his list, though he quoted some United States? sources. It did surprise that Horatio Storer?s medicina in nummis did not appear. Pearn begins with a discussion of numismatics in general to introduce his non-numismatic readers to the value of numismatics as an historical source. Then, relating numismatics to the history of medicine, he documents numismatic sources in ancient sources, Hygeia the Greek goddess of health and her ?Roman successor, Salus? as well other ancient and later coin types. He tells us, ?

    Highlight: Shaw Billings at the Army Medical Museum and Library, both referred to in last week's E-Sylum, let me make the following few remarks. First, quite apart from Allemann, Horatio Storer frequently attributed specific medals to this collection in his long running series on medical medals, which ran in the American Journal of Numismatics from 1889-1912. Then, of course, his son Malcolm, who published medicina in nummis in Boston in 1931, based on his father's work and on the major collection in the Boston Medical Library, did the same. The Army Medical Museum, which had been founded in 1862 as a medical pathology museum, to preserve specimens useful in the understanding of diseases (and thus only incidentally a repository for historical objects like medals) was renamed the Army Institute of pathology after the

However, she needs people's help. Here is how you can aid this project: 1. Numismatic Literature. Neither the Medical Library or the university's main library have any monographs on the subject of medicine and numismatics. Copies of Storer's medicina in nummis, Freeman's Medals Relating to Medicine and Applied Sciences in the Numismatic Collection of Johns Hopkins University and Forrer's Biographical Dictionary of Medalists would be very helpful to say the least. My wife has been able to access copies via interlibrary loan but it would be far more convenient if she, and other researchers, had copies at hand in the rare book room. Likewise, any auction

    The Token, America's Other Money (COAC #10)

    Highlight: piece slightly finer than the Sager coin dated 1838. The story might have ended here, but it didn’t. At the Coinage of the Americas Conference on October 29, 1994, following a presentation related to this present article, there was a question- and-answer period. Dr. George Fuld commented rather casually that G.G.G. coins were listed in Horatio Storer’s book published more than a half century ago, medicina in nummis. 12 When I returned home, I secured a copy by mail from the American Numismatic Association Library in Colorado Springs. Lo and behold! Storer iden- tified G.G.G. as his No. 7446, “Godwin’s [s/c] Grand Grease Juice (for the hair), USA.”! This goes to show that history, and, often, numismatic research, goes in circles!

    Highlight: mmary Fearing that trivial details might get out of hand, I propose to stop giving citations at this point, and to summarize the situation: 1. Two United States one-cent pieces are known to me, one dated 1838 and the other 1840, stamped with the inscription ‘’USE / GOODWINS / GRAND / GREASE JUICE / FOR THE HAIR / G.G.G.” In addition, Storer recorded an 1836-dated cent when he did his research for medicina in nummis. 2. Numerous cents and other coins are known stamped with the inscriptions “USE / G.G.G.’’ and “USE / G.G.G. / & / G.G.G.G.,” the latest of which is dated 1857. 3. The counterstamping of the “USE / G.G.G.’’ and “USE / G.G.G. / 8t / G.G.G.G.” pieces probably took place circa 1854-57.
