MORE ON THE 1792 WASHINGTON CENT IN GOLD PEDIGREE GAP

As noted in previous E-Sylum issues, George Fuld and Eric Newman
are seeking to update the history of the 1792 Washington cent in
gold.  The coin was once in the Lorin Parmelee sale where it was
bought by H.P. Smith and ultimately found its way to Col. Green
in 1925.  In trying to plug the gap between Smith and Green, Saul
eichman asked who Smith bought the coin for.  He wrote: "If it
was for Dewitt Smith, then the coin would be in the Brand
journals as Brand did purchase his colonials among other things,
ditto if it was purchased by Dr. Hall. If it was for Granberg,
then it might appear in the Newcomer and/or Col. Green inventories.""

Professional Coin Grading Service President Ron Guth writes: "I just
checked the Waldo Newcomer inventory (PCGS owns the original version
once held by B. Max Mehl) and the 1792 Gold Washington "Cent" was not
listed therein."

[Thanks!  That rules out one possibility.  So ... does anyone have
access to the Brand, Hall or Green inventories?  Where are they today?
