Hello everyone, this is Senior Numismatist James McCartney from Stack’s Bowers Galleries. Tonight we’re bringing to you the Collection of John W. Adams and the first lot in the sale is this
beautiful Washington Before Boston Medal in silver. This example is one of just
five known in private hands and one of the about twelve known in total. They
made a lot of different variations of the Washington Before Boston Medal, but
this is the very first. This is an original silver striking highly
desirable. We most recently sold an example from the Carb Collection earlier
this year and realized about $150,000, which goes to show you how desirable these are. So catch this rare original Washington
Before Boston Medal in tonight’s session of the John W. Adams Collection. It will be offered in Lot 2001. Thank you for tuning in.
