Dave Stone is looking for information on two numismatic figures - can anyone help? Thanks.
I am trying to find any biographical information on Charles A. Waters, the 19th century collector from Liverpool, whose collection included the Sultan of Muscat's 1804 dollar. I have the two Glendennings catalogs from 1917 in which his collection was sold, and I have Dave Bowers' notes about him in the 1804 dollar book, but little biographical information is available.
Another person of interest is a Dr. Phillip Nelson, whose collection was purchased intact by Waters at some point. He seems to have specialized in coins from the Isle of Man and Colonial U.S. issues. If any readers of The E-Sylum can provide any data on these gentlemen I would appreciate the help very much.
