    1864 George Snooks, Detroit, MI, F-225BW-3d, R.9, MS64 NGC. In checking Detroit city directories, listings for George Snooks and his fish business alternate the spelling of the last name as Snook and Snooks. This cataloger will go with George Snooks, the name as it appears on this Store Card. The Card shows the business as Geo. Snooks Fish Depot, located on the corner of 1st and Larned Streets. This example is dated 1864 and struck on a copper-nickel planchet. Both sides are fully prooflike with pleasing tan surfaces and traces of darker toning. A highly attractive and appealing near-Gem.
    Purchased from C. Verhoeven (3/14/1946) for $2.50.
    From The Clifton A. Temple Collection.
