The Sydney F. Martin Collection of

Higley Coppers

The present offering of select specimens from the Syd Martin collection of Higley coppers includes an example of each of the six major Red Book types for the deer obverse design. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first ever auction appearance of all six types in the same collection or sale. Included are the semi-unique VALVE OF THREE PENCE / I AM GOOD COPPER, one of two known, and the extremely rare VALVE ME AS YOU PLEASE / I AM GOOD COPPER, one of three known. The six coins to follow represent the finest example of each given type in the Martin collection, and the grade, condition, and eye appeal of all are truly exceptional within the context of the series. This is certainly an unprecedented opportunity for collectors who have been waiting to own one or more high quality examples of the coveted Higley copper.
