by Saul Teichman
updated November 17, 2017

The following listing comes from the Colonel Green photographic plates of half eagles and eagles in the possession of Stacks as well as items which appear in the B.G. Johnson invoices on the Newman portal.Of particular note are patterns which have been attributed to the Colonel Green collection but were not on the plates including the 4 1878 gold patterns J1575/P1768, J1577/P1770, J1579/P1772 and J1581/P1774 and the 1861 Paquet double eagle which were actually part of the Virgil Brand collection.

We would like to thank Stacks for access to the plates.
