            For both the numismatist and philatelist you will be pleased to know that John N. Lupia has amassed an extensive collection of covers and letters to coin and stamp dealers from the 1860's to the late 1940's, comparable to that of the late Steven R. Belasco that was sold by Siegel Auction Galleries. Also he has amassed one of the largest collections known of the Chapman Family Archive, the preeminent coin and stamp dealers from 1875 to the retirement of Helen Chapman and her manager Ell B. Wright in 1948. The massive size of this monumental collection that contains at least 27,000 or more pieces of mail rivals that of the great John Friedrich Seybold.
             For those unfamiliar with the History of Stamp and Coin Dealers Collection by the late Steven R. Belasco you can catch a glimpse of it at the Siegel website

Ancient Greek, and Roman Coins 

SOLD $450. One still available for sale. There were two copies!


Henry Noel Humphreys (1810-1879), Ancient Coins and Medals : An Historical Sketch of the Origin and Progress of Coining Money in Greece and Her Colonies; Its Process With the Extension of the Roman Empire; And its Decline With the Fall of that Power. Illustrated by Numerous Examples in Actual Relief, By Barclay's Process, In the Metal of the Respective Coins. Second Edition. (London : Grant and Griffith, 1851) Thick 8vo. vi, 208 pages. This lavishly produced  book with three-dimensional coins set in circular depressions typical of a coin cabinet tray was produced by Henry Richard Vizetelly (1820-1894) and James Thomas Vizetelly's  (1817-1897) engraving and printing workshop at Peterborough Court on Fleet Street, London from 1850 to 1851. The 10  plates are actually facsimiles of coin boards with metal facsimiles of coins in relief mounted as though looking at a period cabinet tray filled with specimens. The facsimiles in this particular copy offered here are very well to exceptionally preserved with few specimens with minor oxidation, something quite extraordinary if not considered quite rare by the astute bibliophile.  Red edged leaves as typical for Victorian book production. Blindstamped full brown sheep leather cover embossed proto-Art Nouveau floral motif frame with gilt outlined title. See photo for corner conditions of binding. Cover on original boards with new spine attached by professional bindery many years ago. Some buckling on back cover which can be completely repaired by professional book binders glue adhering board to leather. New endpapers. Some separation of pages from spine beginning, only one loose, all others firm and intact. The first and second editions were very difficult to bind properly due to the number of heavy boards inserted to house the coin facsimiles. Most extant copies are in far worse shape than this one offered here. One coin board has become detached but is intact. Some book conservation can restore this specimen to better reflect its highly rare and valuable assets worthy to be in the best numismatic library or museum. Leitzmann's Supplement to Lipsius, Bibliotheca Numaria, 60, the third entry for Humphrey's. Very Scarce title, but rare in this condition. Overall Good condition, but facsimiles are very fine. Estimate $450.00+ USD + S & H and insurance. For those interested I have a second copy that is of a lesser grade than this one having a few coins badly oxidized and disintegrated. Not listed in Clain-StefanelliWrite john@numismaticmall.com with bids and further details.

Kunze Cabinet of Coins, 1805



Rev. Johann Christoph Kunze (1744-1807), Description of a Cabinet of Coins and Medals Ancient and Modern. Extracted from The Medical Repository And Review Of American Publications On Medicine And The Auxiliary Branches of Science, Vol. III, Second Edition. (New York : T & J. Swords, 1805). Cover is a photocopy only. The article is original in its entirety from pages 351 to 359. Perhaps the earliest published description of a private collector's coin cabinet known in America outside of the Du Simitiere coin auction broadside. Very Scarce. Estimate $100 USD + S&H + insurance. Write john@numismaticmall.com with bids and further details.

Kunze is sometimes Anglicized and spelled in the literature as John Christopher Kunze. He is among the earliest known numismatists in the last quarter of the 18th century America and a contemporary of Pierre Eugene Du Simitiere (q.v.). A German scholar of Hebrew, Kunze came to America in 1770 from England where he sailed from Halle, Germany. He was a Lutheran pastor at the Friesburg Emanuel Lutheran Church, Philadelphia. In 1773 he founded and established a German secondary school (Seminarium). In 1780 the school became the German language department of the infant Pennsylvania University. Hebrew was added to the curriculum but no students enrolled for either language. Kunze’s language institute disbanded and was superseded by Franklin College in Lancaster.

Kunze’s 1781 edition of the Lutheran Catechism together with that of Henrich Miller’s edition of 1774 laid the foundation for the first edition of the authorized version of the Pennsylvania Ministerium catechism.

He went to NY in 1784 to teach at Columbia College. In 1786 Johann Samuel Schwerdtfeger assisted Kunze and Heinrich Moller in organizing the New York Ministerium, the second Lutheran synod in the United States. As a New York coin collector he donated to the New York Historical Society.

His coin cabinet contained over 900 coins of which 30 are gold, 400 silver, 475 copper and bronze. Among his coins are included ancient Roman, medieval and modern European and various pieces of Early American colonial New England Bay Colony silver coinage of 1652, a St. Patrick farthing, a Rosa Americana, and a Voce Populi.

Kunze had a policy where he put his duplicate coins in a chest allowing anyone to take what they pleased as long as they replaced the coin with one not in his collection.

As a writer he is credited in Dr. Morris’ Bibliotheca Lutherana with eight books of which he was the author or editor, from Hymns and Poems to A History of the Lutheran Church and A New Method of Calculating the Great Eclipse of 1806

Thomas Corwin (1794-1865),  Letter From The Secretary of the Treasury, Transmitting A Plan And Specifications For A Mint At San Francisco; April 1, 1852, Referred to the Committee of Ways and Means, and ordered that the letter be printed. Broadside. Signed by Thomas Corwin, Secretary of the Treasury on March 31, 1852. Corwin was the 20th Secretary of the Treasury from July 23, 1850 until March 6, 1853, under President Millard Fillmore (incumbent July 9, 1850-March 4, 1853). The plan was first proposed by President Millard Fillmore as soon as he entered office. The gold rush of 1849 that ensued after gold was discovered the previous year by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill, Coloma, California obviated the need and urgency for the United States government to establish a Mint locally where the gold was mined and assayed. Write john@numismaticmall.com with bids and further details.

Numismatic Bank, Circular 19, circa January 1892


Wilhem Von Bergen (1850-1916), owner of the Numismatic Bank, Boston, Massachusetts, was a great innovator in numismatics and sadly very under appreciated and rated by the public. His Circular No. 19 reads like a newsletter or magazine with articles about the coin market and specific coins. This Circular comes with the original mailing envelope sent to M. V. Burlingame of New York, franked by a Scott #219-A60, 1 Cent, dull blue, Franklin, postage stamp, cancelled with a scarce Blake & Davis No. 2706 Boston Machine Cancellation as bulk mail at Boston, Massachusetts.

W. E. Skinner, Standard Money Manual and Stamp Collectors Guide, 15th Edition, 1892
William E. Skinner, like Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., and John Wyman was a magician and ventriloquist by profession.   In the 1880's he was the publisher of a periodical The Agassiz Journal at Lynn, Massachusetts in 1886. Although this imprint bears 15th Edition, the first addition was in 1891. This suggests he printed a monthly with new additions of postage stamps as they were being issued. Wilhem Von Bergen bought him out and published a very similar work based on this. Very Scarce. Paper covers. Some minor chipping otherwise very good to fine.

The Philatelic West

 

 

Lewis Theodore Brodstone (1872-1936)published The Philatelic West from 1895 to 1930. Brodstone was always an avid numismatist and specialist in paper money buying and selling his entire adult life. He began publishing about stamps in the first few issues since his publication served as the organ for the Nebraska Philatelic Society, in which he served as secretary-treasurer. But The Philatelic West instantly met with success and expanded to cover every field of collecting especially stamps and coins. It became the preeminent collectors magazine that provided a forum for many coin and stamp dealers like Frank Elmer Ellis and his successor Burdette Garner Johnson of St. Louis Stamp & Coin Company, Thomas Lindsay Elder, Herbert Ellis Morey, Ben G. Green, Farran Zerbe, B. Max Mehl, and many, many more well-known dealers and collectors to sound off that did not express themselves through ads or commentary in The Numismatist or the American Journal of NumismaticsThe Philatelic West was published irregularly with the first and third year as a regular monthly but afterwards irregularly and in the final eleven years from 1919 to 1930 as highly irregular if not sporadic. The Philatelic West is quintessential for any numismatic historian and researcher providing information and photographs not found anywhere else. The magazine's center typically contained photographs printed on glossy paper of coins, paper money and collectors and dealers not found in any other publication making it a vital source.

            Numismatic bibliophiles know the first six volumes of The Numismatist are typically ultra rare and very rarely ever appear at auction. A complete set of the first six volumes can easily attain $20,000. The Philatelic West has the same rarity as The Numismatist but  no known sales of the first eleven volumes (1896-1899), which can easily match or exceed that in value of The Numismatist

The Lupia Hoard is the largest known hoard of The Philatelic West of all time comprising over 1,500 copies. Available here are the rare and elusive complete sets of the early Volumes. Now is your opportunity to add to your collection from the hoard originated by William Reynold Ricketts (1869-1956) of the American Philatelic Society Hall of Fame, and of Forty Fort, Pennsylvania (same origin of Dave Bowers).

Partially Priced Coin Auction Catalogue


Ultra Rare Thaler Coin Auction Catalogue of April 14, 1777, in German, partially priced.


Michael Bostelmann (1727-1807), Verzeichniß einer sehr ansehnlichen Sammlung merkwürdiger und seltener Thaler, welche den 14. April, 1777, in öffentlicher Auction auf dem Eimbeckischen Hause verkauft werden sollen Durch Den Mackler Michael Bostelmann. (Hamburg : Gedrucht ben Dietrich Anton Harmsen, 1777) Excessively rare. 

A CATALOGUE OF A VERY RESPECTABLE COLLECTION OF REMARKABLE AND RARE THALER, WHICH ON APRIL 14, 1777, SHALL BE SOLD IN A PUBLIC AUCTION ON THE EIMBECKISCHEN HOUSE BY THE BROKER MICHAEL BOSTELMANN. (HAMBURG: GEDRUCHT BEN DIETRICH ANTON HARMSEN, 1777). 319 pages with 3,950 Lots. The Thaler in this auction catalogue are given Madai numbers, i.e., they are taken from David Samuel von Madai (1709-1780), who wrote his three volume work on the Thaler Cabinet, Vollständiges Thaler-Cabinet, published 1765-1767. Madai's publications were considered indispensable, which is reflected in Bostelmann's early use to aid perspective buyers perusing this catalogue to consider bids in this sale.  In this sale we find Christina, the Queen of Sweden's Thaler of 1633 in lot 439 given Madai No. 223. The very large Thaler of Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg-Prussia minted 30 May 1681 in homage to Magdeburg in lot 958 is given Madai number 626, just to give a few examples. This is an essential catalogue every respectable dealer or curator must have to research these period pieces with greater authority. Later binding which detached  at the back end paper from book block. There are only five known copies extent in rare book rooms in German University Libraries at Hannover, Rostock, Erfurt, Halle/Saale, and Coburg. This was one of the most remarkable coin auctions in Europe. Compared to British coin auction catalogues of the eighteenth century this one is quite disproportionate being 319 pages with 3,950 lots of exceptional rare coins with the largest English catalogue at 172 pages containing duplicates of the British Museum sold 17-22 March, 1788, but only 118 lots out of the 4,813 were coins and medals. Perhaps the largest English eighteenth century collection of coins and medals sold at auction was that of Thomas Allen Barnard on 20-23 April 1789, comprising a 64 page catalogue of books, prints and 1,782 lots of coins and medals. For its time the Hamburg auction held by Bostelmann of 3,950 lots of Thaler was enormous. Certainly, it is a must have for any serious collector of European Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Thaler. 

The Eimbeckischen Hause is the 13th century town hall or Ratskeller of Hamburg, where Einbecker beer was served from the Einbecker Brauhaus. This building served for public auction sales for the art dealer and broker Michael Bostelmann (fl. 1753-1790), who is considered one of the top three art brokers during the second half of the 18th century at Hamburg, the other two being Peter Texier and Peter Packischefsky, who catalogued works of art and coins auctioning them at the Eimbeckischen Hause. Bostelmann's earlier coin sales from 1764 to 1776 were of collections of  gold and silver coins, medals and Thaler. Lipsius fails to list this auction but lists only three coin auction sales at Hamburg in the 1770's : one in 1770; one in 1772; one in 1774. This is a catalogue offered here is of a very extensive collection of Thaler minted for Roman Emperors from Maximilian of 1495 to Maria Theresa of 1766; the Russian Emperors from 1655 to 1762, Spanish Kings from Ferdinand & Isabella to 1772, Portuguese Kings from 1644 to 1752, French Kings from 1493 to 1674, Navarrese Kings from 1579 to 1694, English Kings from Henry IV 1773, Scottish Kings from 1566 to 1633, Swedish Kings from 1512 to 1773, Danish Kings from 1516 to 1761, Hungarian Kings 1499 to 1760, Bohemian Kings from 1278 to 1718, Polish Kings from 1533 to 1766, Prussian Kings from 1701 to 1766, Princes - Mann from 1524 to 1769, Princes - Trier from Johannes II to 1765, Princes - Cologne from 1331 to 1741, Saxony 1500 to 1765, Brandenburg from 1521 to 1695, Braunschweig-Luneburgh from 1692to 1765, Papal from Sixtus IV to Clement XIII; Archiepiscopal - Bremen from 1499 to 1641; Archiepiscopal - Cambray from 1568 to 1573, Archiepiscopal - Magdeburg from 1522 to 1667, Salzburg from 1500 to 1772, Bishops of Augsburg from 1622 to 1744, Bamburg from 1649 to 1750, Breslau from 1627 to 1754, etc., etc.  For the Thaler collector, this is a must have book. Not in the ANS Library.

Nineteenth century Dresden, the capital of Saxony, held auctions near the Kreuzkirche, a Lutheran church recently completed in 1800. At the time of this auction Friedrich Christian Hermann Uber (1781-1822) was the choirmaster. Leitzmann lists several coin auctions held at Dresden in 1805 to 1810, and 1817-1818, but fails to cite this auction in either of its two parts. KnuReinholds von Bildt (1758?-1818) was the Swedish charge d'affaires at Austria from 1794-1796. Part One of the auction took place nearly two years previous in January 1820 with a 70 page catalogue titled : Verzeichniß von Münzen und Medaillen der ältern, mittlern und neuern Zeit, sowohl in Gold und Silber, als auch in unedlern Metallen, welche Montags, den 10. Januar 1820 ... dem Meistbietenden gegen sofortige baare Bezahlung ... zugeschlagen werden sollen .... Carl Ernst Heinrich was the city auctioneer at Dresden during the 1810's to the 1830's having auctioned off several noteworthy coin sales among other auctions of natural history, minerals, works of art, pianos, etc. This catalogue was composed in February 1821 as cited in the cataloguers' preface. This coin auction catalogue is an exceptional piece of scholarship with Heinrich giving each lot descriptions various reference citations to numismatic literature.
