The attached document was scanned from the catalogue of the October 5, 1951 auction held by New Netherlands Coin Company liquidating the estate of D.C. Wismer. This is only the obsolete currency section of the catalogue.

Interesting. There sure are a lot of proofs.

What is the overlap with Haxby? That is, are there proofs in this auction that were in neither Haxby nor Christies's?

I notice that he uses the word "specimen" a lot. I assume he uses the generic definition of the word?

I'm still processing the data, so I can't say yet what the overlap with Haxby or Christies is. I can say there certainly is overlap with both, but I can't say how much. And frankly, the data on most of the entries is so sketchy it will be impossible to tell of they are overlapped. Here's one example:

PA. Lancaster. LANCASTER BANK. $50. PROOF. Unc. Ex. Rare.

As for the New York section... not in this auction. I don't know how many "parts" there were to the estate sale, so New York might have been in one of the other "parts".

As for use of the word "specimen", I get the sense it is being used in the generic sense.

I just finished first pass processing and found 152 lots with proof notes in them.
