   LOW 1885 KINGSFORD SALE  

   Darryl Atchison wrote:   "In response to your query regarding 
   canceled sales, I only know of one such occurrence, although 
   I am sure there are many others.  

   In Nov. 1885 Lyman Haynes Low prepared a 31 page, unplated 
   catalogue for R.E. Kingsford, a barrister from Toronto, Canada. 
   The sale consisted of 658 lots of British silver and tokens as well 
   as Canadian coins and tokens.  After the catalogue was prepared 
   Kingsford withdrew his collection from auction and the sale was 
   canceled.  This catalogue is not listed in either of Adams' or Davis' 
   text.  

   If anyone has a copy of this catalogue I would be delighted to 
   correspond with them."  

   Dave Hirt also listed the Kingsford sale, an example of which 
   was sold as lot 1364 in Part Two of the Champa Library sales. 
   Cataloguer Charles Davis noted that the copy is one of three 
   known.  "Thirty years later, Low finally got to sell Kingsford's 
   collection in his 180th sale."
