Sheridan Downey’s Mail Bid Sale #9, July 30, 1993 Auction Catalog
This was the famous Overton Collection sale that never happened, unfortunately. In 1993 the entire Overton set, assembled by Al Overton himself was getting ready to go to auction when a mid-western collector decided to buy the entire set intact. Downey pulled the coins from the auction upsetting quite a few collectors in the process, but the set remains intact today. The printing run of these catalogs were cut short as a result and are very difficult to find today. This particular copy is in mint condition with crisp, white pages and no writing in or on the catalog anywhere. It also comes with a few extra bonuses!!!
Also included is a copy of the 3 page prices realized for the sale; the July 13, 1993 letter from Sheridan Downey that went out to all prospective Bust Half bidders/collectors explaining what happened; as well as a photocopy of the June 29, 1993 full page article published in Numismatic News advertising the upcoming landmark auction. This catalog has been known to sell for up to $125 on other dealer’s websites, however it’s available here for only....SOLD...for shipping via Media mail.
