Adams 15. An important sale of U.S. and world coins, with 15 exceptionally fine photographic plates. This wide-ranging, representative collection was formed by New York financier Charles Gregory, of whom Chapman wrote: “It seems very natural that a banker, using the moneys of the world, should turn his attention to forming a collection of them.” Two plates depict ancient and European gold coins; ten plates illustrate European silver coins, among them multiple thalers and a 70 ducat of Sigismund III; one plate depicts colonial and United States silver coins; and the final two plates illustrate notable American pioneer gold coins. Adams A: “Excellent dollars of the world. Baker 106 in gold. RR Bechtlers. Dunbar $5. Lincoln, Johnson peace medals.” Davis 224. Fanning 21.
