COGAN COIN THEFT BROADSIDE 

   George Kolbe writes: "Hanging on my office wall is a small 
   broadside, 22 x 14.5 cm. (8.75 x 5.75 inches), framed, entitled: 
   "STOLEN/From the Store of Edward Cogan, No. 48/North 
   Tenth Street." 

   I bought this at, I believe, an ANA Convention years ago and 
   have never done any research on it. A "Pattern Cent, 1859" 
   and several "Edward Cogan, Washington Medal, and Store 
   Cards" dies are among the items listed. 

   The prior owner wrote on the back of the frame: "Cogan 
   Burglary took place ? between Oct 28 1859 and May 21, 
   1860" and also cites an article in the April 1867 AJN."
