1792 WASHINGTON CENT IN GOLD INFORMATION SOUGHT

George Fuld writes: "Eric Newman and I are trying to update the 1792
Washington cent in GOLD.  Breen mentioned an appearance in the W. H.
Smith sale -- is this a Chapman sale about 1900? -- did one sell there?
-- what is the lot number? Above all, does anyone have a named Smith
sale?

We are also trying to track the coin's disposition to 1925 when it
was sold to Colonel Green.  Eric suspects that it might have been
in a dealers stock (perhaps Scott or Proskey).  Any help would be
greatly appreciated."

[I'm familiar with the Chapman H. P. Smith sale, but could not find
a reference to a W. H. Smith sale by the Chapmans.  In Martin
Gengerke's "American Numismatic Auctions, 1990 (Limited Deluxe
Edition), the only W. H. Smith listed as a consignor is William H.
Smith, in John W. Haseltine's 83rd sale (January 19th, 1885).
