Stack's Bowers published this item about Washingtonia in their upcoming sale of the second part of the collection of Syd Martin. Amazing pieces - what a collection!
Part II of the landmark Sydney F. Martin Collection will feature some of the areas that Syd was most passionate about, including his front line set of 1785 and 1786 Connecticut coppers, French Colonial coinage, Rosa Americana coinage and Washingtonia. The sale will be held during the 2022 Whitman Coin & Collectibles Winter Expo in association with the C4 annual gathering.
The Washingtonia in the Martin Collection is world class, starting with the circa 1777
Voltaire medal and continuing through the 19th century with many significant highlights. A few are imaged here, but others include a complete set of Seasons medals, numerous funeral medals in silver, copper and white metal, choice Success medals, a fine offering of 1832 issues, exceptional 1889 Inaugural Centennial medals in silver and bronze (the latter a pattern issue), and many more exciting items!
