David Stone forwarded this information in response to last week's query. Thanks!
I believe I have some of the information David Davis needs for his article:
1. F.S. Edwards Collection (Ed Cogan, 10/1865), lot 527, realized $.20, sorry no name.
2. Joseph Mickley Collection (W. Elliot Woodward, 10/1867), lot 2143, “Half eagle of 1834 in copper, the new type; extremely rare, perhaps unique.” Sold to Fellows for $.50.
3. William Fewsmith Collection (Ebenezer Locke Mason, 10/1870), lot 1149, “1834; Half eagle; copper; very good. ”Realized $.25, from a notation in the catalog, I believe the buyer’s name was Arnold.
4. Lorin G. Parmelee Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 6/1890), lot 23, “1834 Half Eagle: same as regular issue of new type: Copper: plain edge: only specimen we have seen; fine.” Realized $1.75, sorry, no name.
I am sending the text of the lots in Woodward’s Jenks sale if David needs them, but I don’t have any price or buyer’s names for the lots.
William J. Jenks Collection (Woodward, 9/1880), lot 1384, “1834 Half Eagle; copper, milled edge, good, scarce.”; lot 1385, “1834 Same; plain edge, good.”
Hope this is helpful, and “Happy Holidays” from everyone at Heritage
