The Magnificent Twin Leaf Collection

A Great Collection of Cents is the Story of American Numismatics

October 15, 1792

“In execution of the authority given by the legislature, measures have been taken for engaging some artists from abroad to aid in the establishment of our mint; provision has been made for the requisite buildings, and these are now putting into proper condition for the purposes of the establishment. There has also been a small beginning in the coinage of the half dismes and cents, the want of small coins in circulation calling our first attentions to them.”

-Thomas Jefferson

The Douglas C. Kaselitz Collection

The Douglas C. Kaselitz Collection

An Appreciation by Gordon J. Wrubel

As with many serious collectors, Douglas Kaselitz, known to his friends as Doug, developed a strong passion for coin collecting at a very young age. Also like many budding mid-century collectors, he financed his earliest purchases with his first job, at the age of 12, delivering newspapers. While this occupation seems to be fading from the American scene today, it is one that provided many with a good foundation for building a strong work ethic and sense of responsibility at an early age. This foundation was not lost on Doug Kaselitz.

The D. Brent Pogue Collection, An Appreciation

The D. Brent Pogue Collection, An Appreciation

By John Kraljevich, Numismatic Consultant

There have been auctions of American coins conducted in the United States since the decade following the nation’s founding. Even before the establishment of the United States Mint in 1792, collectors with an interest in art, geography, and history assembled cabinets of fine specimens, chosen for their rarity, their historical significance, and their state of preservation.
