A lengthy catalogue based on the extensive collection of early American silver formed by New York Supreme Court Judge Alphonso T. Clearwater (1848–1933). Generally non-numismatic, the catalogue is important to specialists in colonial coins as it depicts both sides of Clearwater’s Noe 1-D (Salmon 1-A) NE shilling, one of only four examples known.
