   COIN SALE CATALOGS  

   An interest is felt by many persons in collecting the 
   Catalogues of American Coin Sales, second only to their 
   interest in the coins themselves.  Many years ago I 
   purchased the stocks and remainders in the hands of the 
   principal dealers, and have recently bought a great 
   number, including some of the early and rare issues, 
   together with illustrated and extra paper copies, so that 
   I am now able to furnish to order, priced or plain, the 
   Catalogue of almost any Coin Sale that has taken place in 
   the United States within the last twenty-five years.  

   My collection comprises some not mentioned by Attinelli, 
   and several prior to the Watkins Sale, which he supposed 
   was the first made here. Of Catalogues of my own sales I 
   am unable to furnish complete sets, but can supply all but 
   two or three.  For copies of my Catalogues of June 27, 1860, 
   Sale at Boston; Dec. 23, 1863, Sale in Providence; and Oct. 
   28, to Nov. 2, 1877, the Mickley Sale in New York; I will 
   pay a liberal price in cash.  A list of my Coin Sales, a 
   pamphlet of 8 pages, giving an account of thirty-four sales, 
   time, place, amount, etc., will be mailed to any address on 
   receipt of twenty-five Cents.  A copy of Attinelli's work, 
   giving particulars of nearly every sale ever held in the 
   United States prior to 1876, for sale in sheets, price $5. 
   Probably not more than twenty-five copies of this book are 
   in the hands of collectors, and none are on sale.  It is 
   invaluable to the collector of Coin Catalogues.  Prices of 
   Catalogues quoted on application.
