MEDALS OF WASHINGTON 



COLLECTION OF W. S. APPLETON 



It is a fact not pleasant to remember, that nowhere at present can one find 
a worthy account of the medals struck in honor of Washington. Snovvden's 
" Medallic Memorials of Washington in the Mint of the United States," pub- 
lished in 1 86 1, contains descriptions of 138, and is very valuable; but the 
number struck since is enormous, to say nothing of those of earlier date, 
which were not in the collection at the Mint. Woodward's " List of Wash- 
ington Memorial Medals," privately printed in 1865, "only proposed to 
furnish brief descriptions of a portion of the medallic memorials of his 
death" and enumerates but 48. Several are of course mentioned in Dicke- 
son's "American Numismatical Manual," and long lists of Medals of Wash- 
ington are in various sale catalogues, particularly those of Haines, McCoy, 
and Woodward's Fifth and Sixth. My own collection contains almost every 
medal mentioned by Snowden, Woodward, and Dickeson, a very large part 
of those ever offered at public sale, besides some which have never appeared 
on any catalogue, and have never been described, except, perhaps, in the 
reports of the meetings of the Boston Numismatic Society. I may name, as 
medals of exceeding rarity, numbers XII, XIII, XVI, XLVIII, LV, LXIII, 
LXX, LXXVI. The collection is so extensive that I have thought it 
deserving of a printed catalogue, to which I add notes of some of the medals 



wantmsf m it.

just sailing away. Bronze, size 43.
