MARGOLIS ON THE FORD FRANKLIN MEDALS BY LAGEMAN

Dick Margolis writes: "A couple of belated comments on Alan Weinberg's
extremely interesting report on Ford XIV, which I was very happy to
attend. The pair of Franklin medals by Lageman (I don't know whether
they are by the father or the son, both of whom were engravers) were
struck in Holland, not Germany. JJF told me years ago that he owned
this pair, so I've been quietly waiting in the wings ever since for
the opportunity to acquire them. The Fernand David sale (J. Schulman,
March 11, 1930) is the last prior public offering I am familiar with,
and David only had a silver specimen. Comparison of its illustration
in the David sale catalogue indicates that it is a different example
from Ford's."
