Description


THE HART HISTORICAL COLLECTION.

Mr. Gekald E. Hart has been so well known as a Numismatist and Historical Scholar that it seems almost superfluous to extol the Collection formed at his hands, yet one cannot help being struck with its singular appropriateness to the purpose for which it was gathered, viz : historical study. Hardly a piece in the series of Ancient Coins can be cast aside as uninteresting or irrelevant to some event of the distant past, while the modern pieces are particularly suggestive of a select Cabinet of valuable and rare specimens of historical importance and interest.

Reverting to the Catalogue, the attention of Collectors is called to the number of Gold Coins of value scattered throughout its pages. Greek Staters, gold Darics, Roman Aurei and Byzantine Solidi, Mediaeval and Modern Coins of England, Scotland, France and other countries, are there in number, and in a condition which can scarcely be surpassed. These must prove one of the chief attractions of the sale, for fine Ancient and Modern Gold Coins have lately very much increased in the esteem of collectors, and specimens of this quality are always in great demand.
