Comparette, Thomas Louis (ed.). CATALOGUE OF COINS, TOKENS AND MEDALS IN THE NUMISMATIC COLLECTION OF THE MINT OF THE UNITED STATES AT PHILADELPHIA, PA. 1914. Washington: Government Printing Office. 1914. 8vo. 694 pages. Original blue cloth, gilt. Fine. Frontispiece. 15 plates with printed tissue guards. This book is the last and best edition of the catalogue of the Mint collection. The collection was transferred to the National Museum at the Smithsonian Institution in 1923. Most of the over 18,000 coins, medals, and tokens, are catalogued in this substantial volume. Nearly two-thirds of the volume is devoted to substantial descriptions of 'the coins of the various countries of the American continents and contiguous islands and the medals of the United States of America.' This volume is substantially scarcer than the first edition (1912). Lot weight: 2 lbs 6oz. Subject(s): Coinage - United States.
