A rare coin auction in 1862...
Item # 663886
March 08, 1862
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, March 8, 1862 From the midst of the Civil War, it is not surprising that the ftpg. has a nice print of: "Hopkins's Improved Mode of Mounting Cannon". But the most interesting article is: "The Value of Old Coins" which any coin collector would appreciate. It reports on an old coin auction and notes some of the prices: a 1793 penny for $2, a penny from 1798 for 30 cents, etc.
Sixteen pages, minor wear at the margins, good condition.
