Re: Important Griffin history

The largest bulk lot of 1859s, over 300 pieces, that did not go to the same buyer. I can't recall whether they were said to have been Jack's (Bill should know about that) or if they were, whether any were in holders, but they were culls: holed, scratched, corroded, etc. Jack was an avid collector, who started in the late 1940s or early 50s and he lived longer than most of us will, so he accumulated a lot of stuff. He certainly could have bought more 59s, but he was buying many other things, too, including tokens. I think the tokens have all been dispursed, but he had large collections of some series like ships, colonies & commerce, Bank of Upper Canada and Bank of Montreal front views. Not too bad for a humble dairy farmer!
