J. Schulman Sales of Fernand David American Collection
Scott Miller writes:
"I was pleased to see the notice concerning the upcoming Fernand David sale. Until now, there was virtually nothing known about him. There were at least two previous J. Schulman sales with material from his collection. The first, held on March 11, 1930, consisted of American coins and medals, and included a number of rarities, such as a cased proof set of 1843, half cent through gold eagle (lot 112), and a New Yorke in America token (lot 63).
According to the catalogue, the second part, "will include the European and Oriental series with the exception of the Ancients and the French". That appears to have taken place on June 8, 1931; a copy was listed in Kolbe's "The Numismatic Bookseller", Vol. 3, Nos. 5 and 6, Spring 1987."
Scott kindly attached a scan of the cover of the catalogue. Thanks!

Query: Mystery Rat Man Medal
Pete Smith writes:
"A member of my coin club asked for help in identifying this medal. It appears to be copper, 30mm, with no inscription. Can any E-Sylum reader explain who made this and what it represents?"
Beats me. Ideas, readers?
