Arthur Cox Collection of Ferracute Machine Company Archival Material

Arthur Cox Collection of Ferracute Machine Company Archival Material

By Chris Chatigny, Cataloger

Once every few years, our numismatists come across a collection of equal parts historical and numismatic value. Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio is proud to offer one such collection in our April 2014 Hong Kong Showcase Auction — The Arthur Cox Collection of Ferracute Machine Company Archival Material. This monumental collection is brought to this auction by Arthur Cox, an art teacher and recreational historian of his hometown of Bridgeton, New Jersey. His passion for craftsmanship and his place of origin led to his fascination with the Ferracute Machine Company, one of the major companies in Bridgeton. The Ferracute Machine Company produced machinery that formed and shaped metal, which eventually led them to produce minting machinery.
