    Strobridge's Rare Plated Catalogue
    of the Seavey Collection

    (Strobridge, William Harvey). A Descriptive Catalogue of the Seavey Collection of American Coins, the Property of Lorin G. Parmelee, of Boston. Cambridge: University Press, 1873. 8vo, contemporary black half morocco, gilt; spine lettered in gilt in the English fashion. iv, 63, (1) pages; 1091 listings; 5 fine photographic plates of rare coins, with tissue guards. Originally catalogued for dispersal at auction, this superb collection of Colonials, patterns and United States gold and copper coins was purchased en bloc by Parmelee and the sale never took place. Though 150 copies were reportedly printed to record the collection for posterity, copies are very rare today. A note written by Eric P. Newman and laid into this copy observes that "the image of the reverse of the 1792 Washington President on the first plate and the plate after p. 48 is the same but could be a different metal." The two images do indeed appear to depict different metals. Near fine.
    Estimate $2,000.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
