PRIOR SALES OF JOHN FORD COLLECTION MATERIAL

In response to last week's question, George Fuld writes: "As I believe
I related earlier, Ford sold many coins through Bowers and Ruddy.  Ford
sold all his U. S. coins (including a mint red roll of half cents)
starting in 1979 to raise money for his projected expenses at the
Garrett sales.  His main interest was the Nova Constellatio patterns
which he eventually bought (these have not yet been auctioned by
Stack's).

While I was Americana maven at B&R, Ford consigned a number of
collections to be sold, at least one under his name about 1982-3.
The major group was his collection of Hitler medals with his name
attached..  Also were his souvenir silver spoons, a collection of
belt buckles, some Civil War tokens and several others that I do
not recall.  A perusal of the B&R catalogs from 1980 will reveal
others.  I did sell copies of many of his consignments through Lake
Books a year or so ago.

Thus, I think the 1989 Ford sale was only one of a series of
consignments over the years."
