United States Pattern, Experimental and Trial Pieces-Judd, Second Edition 1962, Harry W. Bass Signed & Dated

October 20, 2014 Sales Archive, Sold - Americana

This copy of Judd’s reference work belonged in the library of Harry W. Bass and it is boldly signed and dated with red ink at the top of the first blank page inside the front cover as “Harry W. Bass Jr.” on one line and directly below “May, 1965”. The book itself is generally in exceptional condition with tight binding, a clean cover with bold cover text and generally clean pages. This appears to have been a shelf copy of the Judd book in the Harry W. Bass library. Bass began collecting coins in the 1960s and the non-profit foundation created by Harry Bass, Sr. includes the following:

“Over the last thirty years of his life, he assembled one of the most complete collections of U.S. gold coins ever brought together by either an individual or a museum. In those three decades he collected over 8,000 U.S. gold coins, for he specialized in their die varieties (the die changes that occurred with use and aging), and upon his death left his collection to the his Foundation. To become a world-class expert in this very specialized area, he also assembled a private numismatic library of over 10,000 items. His Core Collection of U.S. Gold is now on display at the American Numismatic Association Museum in Colorado Springs.” Source; The Harry W. Bass, Jr. Foundation.
