ROBERT HENDERSON AND THE SHERATON COIN COMPANY

In an email on another topic this week, Dave Bowers wrote:

Robert Henderson, founder of the Sheraton Hotel chain, was a notable collector of U.S. large cents and in 1960 was the keynote speaker at the American Numismatic Association convention banquet in Boston. He also financed the Sheraton Coin Co., in Boston, which operated for a few years.

This comment prompted me to pull out my binder of U.S. Large Cent ephemera, where I have a copy of the Sheraton Coin Company's Winter and Spring 1947 Fixed Price List. Can anyone tell us more about Henderson the numismatist Sheraton Coin Company? -Editor

Is anyone aware of another version of the Sheraton Coin Co. FPL? I've never seen one. I checked Remy Bourne's book, and this is the only example listed (Fixed Price Lists & Prices Paid For Lists of United States Coin Dealers 1940-1949 Volume IV, p203-204). -Editor

Click on the images below to read larger versions on our Flickr archive. Check out the prices - XF Chain Cents for $300! (I'll take two!):
