In the Brand material at the American Numismatic Society I found that DeWitt Smith owned a silver Getz half dollar. It was recorded under journal # 46846 with no grade. However, I located it in a paper called Rarities Box 2 page 2 where it was described as Unc Proof like with a scratch behind the head. This description matches the Robert Davis coin and fills the gap between Davis and F C C Boyd who acquired the coin in the 1940's. Ford acquired it from Boyd.
DeWitt Smith also owned the gold Washington coin from the Parmelee sale. It was recorded as journal # 46483 with a notation that it was Washington's pocket piece. This coin was sold to Wayte Raymond in 1933 who presumably sold it to Col. Green. Eric Newman acquired it from B G Johnson. This part of the pedigree was the subject of an question years ago and I am not sure if it was answered. I tried to relay the information to Eric Newman through a member of the ANS and got no reply.
I am currently working on a pedigree listing of the 1792 copper disme and would like to hear from anyone who has information on this.
I passed this note along to David Fanning, who will in turn notify George Fuld and Eric Newman. If anyone has further questions or can help Wayne with his research on the 1792 copper disme, his email address is
