    Highlight: portrait number four on Mason's photographic galleryne and only president of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis. No photograph of R. H. Davids, unfortunately, is to be found among the 48 personages on the plate. Since Mason's plate did not deliver the definitive evidence, the next step was his house organ. Mason's Coin and Stamp Collector's Magazine, whence came the original of the aforementioned photographic gallery plate. Here, in Volume One, Number One (April 1867), was quickly found an in- teresting tidbit. Mason penned a short article entitled Public Sale of Coins, Medals, &c. in which he promised to review future coin sales. The last para- graph of this

These plates are made from an enlarged negative — each picture true and life- like in every feature, and, from their en- larged size, readily recognised by the friends of the originals. The plates | are intended for framing, and contain the name and residence, in numerical order, of each individual represented. As the publication of this Photographic Gallery has entailed a heavy expense, we have, at the solicitation of many subscribers, published the large Photo- graphic plate, which must not be con- fused with the magazine plate, as the former is larger, mounted on heavy board, and adapted as an ornament, as well as a useful medium, of making the acquaintance of the noted coin

    Highlight: portrait number four on Mason's photographic galleryne and only president of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis. No photograph of R. H. Davids, unfortunately, is to be found among the 48 personages on the plate. Since Mason's plate did not deliver the definitive evidence, the next step was his house organ. Mason's Coin and Stamp Collector's Magazine, whence came the original of the aforementioned photographic gallery plate. Here, in Volume One, Number One (April 1867), was quickly found an in- teresting tidbit. Mason penned a short article entitled Public Sale of Coins, Medals, &c. in which he promised to review future coin sales. The last para- graph of this

These plates are made from an enlarged negative — each picture true and life- like in every feature, and, from their en- larged size, readily recognised by the friends of the originals. The plates | are intended for framing, and contain the name and residence, in numerical order, of each individual represented. As the publication of this Photographic Gallery has entailed a heavy expense, we have, at the solicitation of many subscribers, published the large Photo- graphic plate, which must not be con- fused with the magazine plate, as the former is larger, mounted on heavy board, and adapted as an ornament, as well as a useful medium, of making the acquaintance of the noted coin

    The Philadelphia Americana Sales

    Highlight: in a New York City photographic galleryners in the 1850s. In 1857, his business was purchased by Thomas Faris (whose counterstamped coins are highly prized as well). Brunk writes that Faris encountered financial trou- bles and Root repurchased the gallery in 1859. However, my research shows he traveled to Dubuque, Iowa in 1857 and opened a gallery there, where he operated "S. Root's Premium Daguerrean and Photographic Gallery" until 1887. During his career, Root won many medals from the American Institute and is reported to have produced the first picture ever taken of Jenny Lind in this country. His photo of P. T. Barnum with General Tom Thumb positioned at Barnum's shoulder is a classic and resides at the Smithsonian. Among all the daguerreian marks

The original of this plate was published by Philadelphia dealer Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., in Mason's Coin and Stamp Collector's Magazine for March of 1869. The reproduction plate was created by bibliophile Remy Bourne and dis- tributed gratis by numismatic literature dealer Cal Wilson in the March- October 1986 issue of his house organ, The Repository. Sure enough, the plate contained a nice portrait of the father of American coin collecting; but it also had 47 other images, including that of the plate's creator, Mr. Mason. It was the 48th and final image, however, that caught the eye: A. C. Kline, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mr. Kline is
