The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is the complete Edward Cogan catalog set. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided
the following report. -Editor
Following up on John Lupia’s biography of Edward Cogan, presented in last week’s E-Sylum, the Newman Portal has completed scanning
of the Edward Cogan auction catalogs. Both Adams (United States Numismatic Literature, Volume One) and Gengerke (American Numismatic
Auctions) count 70 Cogan sales, from 1858 to 1879, and these are all now available on the Newman Portal. This set was primarily scanned at the
American Numismatic Society library, with Dan Hamelberg filling in key items at the end, notably a manuscript copy of the Foote sale (3/7/1859), and
the DeHaven collection catalog (1861, sold en bloc to Lilliendahl).
The DeHaven catalog was little known to us – we used the Newman Portal itself to search on “DeHaven” and located information from John
Adams on this rare Cogan emission. The Cogan series further features the first plated catalog in American numismatics, namely the MacKenzie
collection (1869), and the ANS copy presented here is a triple play – plated, priced, and named.
