Adams 1. The important 1863 printing of Edward Cogan’s first sale. As Adams explains (page 18), “The first four sales in the Cogan series are not catalogs in the standard sense; rather they are later... reprints from single manuscripts available in Cogan’s store. Local patrons used this list to scout for coins of their choice; bids in these cases were submitted in sealed envelopes which were all then opened on the appointed day.” Attinelli 13.
