I am working on an article about the enigmatic Ricketts's Circus Token and I was wondering if I could once again tap the vast resources of
your readership to see if anyone has an annotated named copy of the Woodward May 26, 27, 28 and 29 of 1884 J. T. Levick sale. I have of course tried
the ANS and ANA already.
I am specifically looking to see who purchased Lots 1164, 1165, and 1166. As always, many thanks!
My copy of the 1884 Levick sale is plated, but unfortunately it is not named. Above is an image of the American Numismatic Society
specimen. Woodward states "It is said that Washington frequented this circus as a place of amusement." -Editor
