    Allison W. Jackman's Plated
    Thomas Warner Catalogue

    Chapman, S.H. and H. Catalogue of the Very Large and Well-Known Collection of Ancient Greek and Roman, English, Foreign and American Coins and Medals of Thomas Warner, Esq., of Cohocton... New York: Bangs, June 9-14, 1884. 4to, later brown half morocco, with marbled sides; spine lettered in gilt. 192 pages; 3727 lots; 12 fine photographic plates, tinted to approximate the metallic content of the items depicted, with original tissue guards; prices realized list bound in. Binding a bit worn, especially at joints. Head chipped; very good. Ex Allison W. Jackman, with his bookplate. Jackman would go on to consign his collection to Henry Chapman, who would feature it with a plated sale catalogue.

    Rated A+ by Adams. An important and extensive collection with notable ancients, excellent English coins, tokens and war medals and numerous European rarities. The American portion is especially notable for its gem large cents, Washingtonia and historical medals. Visually, it is one of the most impressive of the Chapman series with its magnificent reproductions of beautiful oversize medals which, as well as the coins, are depicted in tints approximating the metallic colors and often appear to be three-dimensional.
    Estimate $1,500.

    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.
