Adams A (both sales). A most important collection whose origins are still not fully known. The large cents were catalogued by Dr. Sheldon. According to interviews and research conducted by P. Scott Rubin, Charles J. Dupont was a coin collector/part-time dealer who, with the help of his next door neighbor Charles Anderson, posing as a philatelic expert, acquired the coins and a philatelic collection from an unknown eastern institution. Important segments of the collection, mostly gold coins, were sold privately through Stack’s, some ending up in the Lilly collection now at the Smithsonian Institution.

Price: $80.00
