Mr. sheldon’s visitors arrived in due course. They were provincial people of the middle-class, accounted monstrously genteel in their own neighborhood, but in nowise resembling London- ers of the same rank . Mr. Thomas Halliday was a big, loud-spoken, good-tempered Yorkshireman, who had inherit- ed a comfortable little estate from a plodding, money-making father, and for whom life had been very easy. He was

    than five minutes he came out of his room half dressed. Nancy told him that Mrs. Halliday had taken fresh alarm about her husband, and wished for further advice. “ She sent you to tell me that?” asked Philip. “Yes.” “And when does she want this new dootor called in?” “Immediately, if possible.” It was seven o’clock by this time, and the morning was brightening a little. ‘ ‘ Very well, ” said Mr. sheldon ; “ her wishes shall be attended to directly. Heaven forbid that I should stand between my old friend and any chance of his speedy recoveiy ! If a stran- ger can bring him round quicker than I can, let the stranger come.” Mr. Sheldon was not slow to obey Mrs. Hal- liday’s behest. He was departing on his quest breakfastless, when Nancy Woolper met him in the hall with a cup of tea. He accepted the

The pink and pattern of propriety within, as it was the pink and pattern of propriety without, it excited in every breast alike a wondering awe, as of a hab- itation tenanted by some mysterious being, in- finitely superior to the common order of house- holders. The inscription on the brass-plate informed the neighborhood that No. 14 was occupied by Mr. sheldon, surgeon-dentist ; and the dwellers in Fitzgeorge Street amused themselves in their leisure hours by speculative discussions upon the character and pursuits, belongings and surround- ings of this gentleman. Of course he was eminently respectable. On that question no Fitzgeorgian had ever hazard- ed a doubt. A householder with such a door- step and such muslin curtains could not be other than the

And then there would be the pleasure of making that iniquitous creature, the London lass, bestir herself, and there would be further- more the advantage of certain little perquisites which a clever manager always secures to her- self in a house where there is much eating and drinking. Mr. sheldon himself had lived like a modern anchorite for the last four years ; and ^lancy Woolper, who was pretty well acquainted with the state of his finances, had pinched and contrived for his benefit, or rather for the bene- fit of the black-eyed baby she had nursed nine- and-twenty years before. For his sake she had been careful and honest, willing to forego all the small profits to which she held hers

THE LETTER FROM THE “ALLIANCE” OFFICE. Upon the evening of the day on which Mrs. Halliday and the dentist had discussed the pro- priety of calling in a strange doctor, George sheldon came again to see his sick friend. He was quicker to perceive the changes in the in-* valid than the members of the household, who saw him daily and hourly, and he perceived a striking change for the worse to-night. lie took cure, however, to suffer no evidence of alarm or surprise to appear in the sick cham- ber.

Whereas judicious distribution of the first eight or ten men would lend interest to all the rounds, now, by the present method, some of the rounds and one- lmlf of the tournament are apt to be destitute of first-class men and entertaining play. This year’s tournament serves as an illustration. In the lower half there is but one first- class man, Eaves, and Budlong, sheldon, Ware, and Parel; in the upper half are Lamed, Mahony, Nisbet, George Wrenn, Whitman, Fischer, Stevens, and Cliace. In other words, every one of the first and second class men entered in the tournament, and the ranking man of the third class, are drawn in the upper half, while the best men entered, aside from Eaves the visiting Englishman, in the lower half are of the third and fourth classes.

People are al- ways saying that he won't make old bones — how horrid it is to talk of a person’s bones! — and I’m sure I sometimes make myself wretch- ed about him, as he knows, though he doesn’t thank me for it.” And here Mrs. Halliday’s sobs got the better of her utterance, and Mr. sheldon was fain to say something of a consolatory nature. “Come, come,” he said, “I won’t tease you any more. That’s against the laws of hospital- ity, isn’t it ? — only there are some things which you can’t expect a man to forget, you know. However, let by-goncs be by-gones. As for poor old Tom, I dare say he’ll live to be a hale, hearty old man, in spite of the croakers. People always will croak about

Phil Ralls said it’s news to him that, as Bill Maryott states, "Finally since 1798 S-160 and 1798 S-161 have the same obverse and reverse dies, they are simply die states of the same variety, not separate sheldon varieties." Is there proof for this statement? Where can he read about this? Denis Loring responded to Bill Maryott’s comment that the 1795 Reeded Edge (S-79) should be an NC, not a Sheldon number. 1796 S-96 is another eandidate for NC status. How is "NC" to be defined? Sheldon defined it as a variety with no more than two examples in colleetors' hands in the late 1940s. Neither S-79 nor S-96 qua

Kleeberg in turn, for whom Dr. sheldon once worked, insisted on using the Maris numbers (Lapp and Silberman, 1975, 597). It would be a remarkable achievement indeed for Sheldon to have worked for Hays, because William Wallace Hays, the cataloguer of 1794 large cents, died on July 9, 1899 (Obituary 1899, 29). Sheldon was born on November 19, 1898 (ll^o Was Who 1981, 7:519). On February 20, 1971, Sheldon delivered a talk to the New York

    I found both the 1869 and 1870 versions of Maris’ study of 1794 coppers. Maris provided a descriptive list of the varieties he knew about and a table of the nicknames he had assigned to their obverses, although the list and table were not integrated. Moreover, in the intervening year he had changed a few of the names. I used the Boka book to confirm and amplify upon that list, and then consulted sheldon for any additional names that have been in general use by collectors, but not attributed to any particular one collector in most cases. The result of my research is presented below in integrated format, with the person who assigned the name in parentheses, if known, “general” if not known.

Frossard (1879) and Doughty (1890) covered the whole series, though neither was regarded as complete in its listings or user-friendly in its execution. Still, collectors flocked to the series, and rare die varieties were avidly pursued. And then came sheldon. In 1949, Dr. William Herbert Sheldon published Early American Cents. Its title page announced the collaboration of Homer K. Downing, the noted New York collector, and M.H. Sheldon, who typed the manuscript; M.H. stood for “my hands.” Sheldon, who bid with the code name “Jester” in the 1952 sale of Downing’s collection, also gave credit to Horatio and Hazard Sheldon, “who assisted with spirit.” H

    HARVEY STACK ON CATALOGING 1954 LARGE CENT SALES

    05/26/2013

    gside. Just looking at these two arrays was a treat in itself. Our next job was to catalog each collection and we sought out expert assistance to best showcase the coins when offered at public auction. My father was a student of large cents and enjoyed discussing the series with the collectors and dealers who visited Stack’s. He had developed a close friendship with Dr. William sheldon in earlier years and he hoped he could get Dr. Sheldon to help him catalog these two collections. As chance would have it, during the late 1940s and into the 1950s, Dr. Sheldon was teaching and working at the Columbia-Presbyterian University Hospital in New York City and often came into the store to say hello to Morton and find out what was new. In this case my father answered, “

    EAC. I am a former regional chairman and have these thoughts to offer. We don’t treat our premier members of EAC the way March Wells treated Tom Reynolds, As Chuck Heck stated in the last issue, “the board could have used more tact.” That’s a major understatement. We need to keep EAC out in front of the people, not in the back rooms; so this doesn’t happen to another member like Tom. The way the “sheldon problem” was handled was poor. After the famous ‘Sheldon is a Crook’ editorial, many people in and out of EAC did not understand what was going on. Many I talked to at local shows were afraid any nice copper that had Sheldon’s pedigree near it would be taken away and sent back to the ANS. The whole situation needed more explaining. When I finally wrote in to see if anyone could give us a history

    Reeded Edge The reeded edge is perhaps the most famous edge device on early large cents. It is found on only one variety, the 1795 sheldon S 79. This edge design consists of vertical bars or reeding, similar to the reeding used on coins issued today. This reeding, however, is cruder and somewhat irregular. This edge design was probably applied using a castaing machine at the Mint. Why a reeded edge was used is unknown (11). iiii i m ) hi mmiTTi TAL Overstrikes with edge remnants In late 1795 or early 1796, a few large cents were str

    This theory received some further confirmation in a discussion which I had with Dr, sheldon. According to Dr. Sheldon's best (but admittedly fail- ing) recollection, the Hines* collection contained 3,500 late dates, 300 of which were proofs, and 600 early dates. (I suspect that this latter figure is a con- siderable understatement.) In addition. Dr. Sheldon remembered 100 early dates, including the AU 1799, which had gone to Wurtzbach, just before Hines' death. These two caches of coins

Simpson criminal case, you need to familiarize yourself with the facts in the case of Naftzger v. ANS . Much has been said and written since the decision in that case to smear the reputation of Dr. Sheldon, but the record needs to be set straight. As many of you kno

    Deviations from the straight line in Figure 1 indicate differences from the sheldon relationship. Two things are immediately apparent. First, as noted above, the prices for high grade coins of all types have increased out of the proportions observed in the first half of the century. Second, surprisingly, the Sheldon relationship does appear to describe the price structure, but only from grades G4-EF40, and only for the Liberty Caps. The greatest deviation from the Sheldon relati

I could see that sheldon was an authentic polymath, someone whom I could respect and admire more than any narrow specialist, someone who could write scientific books readably. But not even then did I dream that my study of large cents would entangle my career with Sheldon's . In the meantime, I had been corresponding with John J.

This I had no reason to expect - after all, he had repeatedly advised yotrig people whose mesomurphy measured only 6 or 6.5 (rather than the top figure of 7) to give up any vocational plan of professional athletics as a mis- guided ambition.
