​I have always loved encased postage stamps. When I was a teenager I began to study them, seeking biographies of the various merchants. As time went on I helped form several major collections, including for Jim Ruddy and, in part for John J. Ford, Jr. With Mike Hodder taking the lead, I was co-author of The Standard Catalogue of Encased Postage Stamps published in 1989. My gosh, that was 30 years ago! The book was a best seller and has been out of print for quite a few years.

​Featured in lot 493 of our August 2019 ANA Auction is a desirable electrotype copy of the legendary Brasher doubloon and is sure to appeal to collectors of early American rarities. It is a significant relic of American numismatics, relating to both the Revolutionary-era economy and the practices of the U.S. Mint nearly a century later. It precisely replicates the Mint Cabinet specimen of the 1787 Brasher Doubloon, which was found in a bullion deposit in circa 1838 and rescued from the melting pot by Chief Coiner Adam Eckfeldt.
