In April of 1861, Colonel DeWitt Clinton Baxter organized the Philadelphia Fire Zouaves, also called the Baxter Light Infantry (BLI) Regiment. It was composed entirely of firemen from almost every Philadelphia company, with fancy uniforms based on the French Zouaves. After three months of preliminary service the regiment was mustered in on August 10th and left for Washington. There it became part of the Third California, called the 'California Brigade', which had been created as a body of regular troops under direct authority of President Lincoln. When Colonel Baker was killed in October at the battle of Ball's Bluff, the Philadelphia Fire Zouaves were claimed by the State of Pennsylvania as the 72nd Pennsylvania Volunteers. In 1862 and 1863 the regiment participated in the battles of Manassas, Antietam, Freericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Today, at the center of the Gettysburg line is a bronze statue of a Fire Zouave, commemorating the hand-to-hand combat of the regiment on July 3, 1863, where it suffered 40 percent casualties. In 1864 the regiment fought at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. "Death or an Honorable Life. 1798. B. L.

He was born in London in 1782, orphaned at the age of five, and the pledge of the Odd Fellows to 'educate the orphan' came from his experiences. He lived with an uncle, became an Odd Fellow in 1804, and immigrated to Baltimore in 1817. There he missed the camaraderie of his English lodge, and put a notice in the newspaper requesting that any other Odd Fellows meet with him at the Seven Stars Inn on April 26, 1819. There Wildey and four other English immigrants formed the Independent Order of Odd Fellows of North America. Afterwards he traveled widely, and set up lodges in most of the Eastern states.

1836. Baseball: US Commonwealth Trophy Cups from the Manila Polo Club! 1937. Brunk's father (William Summerfield Brunk) was an All American in track and field in the 1920s, and won third place in the running high jump in the US trials for the 1928 Olympics. Brunk can remember as a kid during the 1950s that the radio news reported one of his father's records in the high jump finally had been broken at a particular track meet. W.S. went to the Philippines during the 1930s, where he held some of their national records. He coached the Philippine national team in the Far Eastern Games before going into business in Manila. By good luck, he was out of the country when the Japanese attacked the Philippines, which was then an American commonwealth. During the 1930s Brunk was the captain and pitcher of the winning Philippine Polo Club baseball teams. His team won the championship in three successive years, and he was presented with an engraved trophy cup each year. Each trophy is about 3 x 1/2 inches. The first two are hallmarked "Homan Mfg. Co., EP-NS, and 0-1155." The third is hallmarked "Melford, M 101, E.P.W.M." 1) Engraved "Philippine Refining Cup, 1937, Manila Polo Club, Won by Polo Club Reds" and the names and positions of the team members.

1922. Rare Gateshead Perambulation Medal, 1824. It was a tradition in a few English parishes to periodically walk the boundary line, which was called a perambulation. A few, VERY RARE medals were struck for such occasions, and were given to those who participated in the ceremony. The "Monthly Chronicle of North County Lore and Legend" noted the following about this perambulation. "On Ascension day, May 27th, 1824, the Revd. John Collinson, with his churchwardens, and twenty four parishioners perambulated the ancient borough of Gabrosentium as Gateshead was called by the Romans. This was the first perambulation since 1792, and a general holiday was declared, and a great number of townspeople accompanied the procession. They were attended by two constables, with flags and two pipers. The procession assembled at St. Mary's church, and at 9 a.m. proceeded to the 'Blue Stone' on Tyne Bridge, where, from a ladder over the side of the bridge some descended, and plodged through the mud by the river to follow the northern boundary. The main procession headed by the pipers playing the 'Keel Row' proceeded along the northern and western boundaries to Wrekenton, where refreshments were provided. Afterwards they joined the ladies and danced to the music of an excellent band. The procession then moved along the southern and eastern boundaries to the river Tyne, at the north west corner of a strip of land called the 'Friars Goose', where the constables and pipers took a boat and returned to their starting point at the Blue Stone on the bridge. The perambulation ended at 4:30 p.m. and the party sat down to dinner at the Black Bull inn, Sir R. S. Hawks, Knight, being in the chair."

Many of his medals have artistic obverses, and multi-line, 'almost endless' reverse inscriptions. Thomason purchased the obverse die that Jean Dassier (1676-1763) had used to strike a portrait medal of James II. In 1688 James abdicated and was replaced by the Protestant William of Orange in the "Glorious Revolution" that still is celebrated by Orangemen. Bust of James II in flowing wig, surrounded by his titles in Latin, below the signature "I. Dassier F." has been partially erased.

1937. Great Britain. Thomason's Medallic Bible Quotation Medals, 1835. Group of six medals with Biblical quotes on each side issued by Sir Edward Thomason (1769-1849), a Birmingham eccentric and medalist, who invented the English cork screw. He issued a number of series of medals, including a 60 piece medallic Bible, and medals celebrating the Elgin Marbles, which were taken from Athens' Parthenon to the British Museum in the early nineteenth century. Many of his medals have artistic obverses, and multi-line, almost endless reverse inscriptions. Of equal interest are the old tags that describe five of the pieces in this lot. Collectors of a century ago kept their medals in elaborate wooden cabinets that had velvet-lined circular depressions cut into their drawers. With each of this lot's medals was placed a 23 mm circle of heavy white paper on which the collector described the piece. On these paper circles are various comments, and "Batty" numbers, which refer to the monumental "Batty's Catalogue of the Copper Coinage of Great Britain, Ireland, British Isles and Colonies, Local and Private Tokens, Jetons, etc." published in Manchester between 1868 and 1898. It was the first general catalog of British tokens, but very hard to use as the tokens were not listed in any particular order, but randomly as Batty came upon newly discovered items.

1963. Great Britain. Crimean War Peace Treaty Medal, 1856. Medal commemorating the end of the Crimean War (1853-1856). It began over a dispute concerning the Christian holy places in Jerusalem, which were then part of the Ottoman Empire. When the Sultan refused the Russian Czar's claim that his troops should be deployed in the Ottoman Empire to "protect" Orthodox Christians, the Czar used that as an excuse to occupy Moldavia and Wallachia, now in Romania. After the Russians destroyed the Turkish Black Sea fleet, the French and British ordered the Russians to withdraw, which they refused to do. Eventually the British, French, Austrians, Turks, and others allied against the Russians. The British-French victory at Balaklava was immortalized in 'Charge of the Light Brigade' by Tennyson.

A number of ships were sunk, and the German loses were greater than those of the British, but Jellicoe was not able to inflict greater losses due to Scheer's brilliant retreat. Since the acts of his subordinate, Viceadmiral David Betty in command of the Battle Cruiser Fleet, were seen as more heroic because his loses were greater, Jellicoe was not greeted with enthusiasm in Britain. Nevertheless, after Jutland, the German navy was never a serious threat for the rest of the war.

Most are anonymous, but a small portion had their legends changed to indicate their issuer or their purpose. R. N. P. Hawkins published an important series of articles on them in the 'British Numismatic Journal' from 1960 to 1968, and there has been increased collector interest in the series recently because of the publication of two books: David Magnay's 'A Catalogue of Advertising Imitation Spade Guineas and Half Guineas' (1997) and Bryce Nelson's 'One Thousand Guineas' (2004). Fifteen guineas with legends changed to "J.W" "G.Y.I" "T.B" "G.L." "M.B.", "J.R. ET J.W." "B. BROS. HOCKLEY" etc. to indicate maker and some with "B.I.R.M." indicating Birmingham. Dated 1701 (not a typo, but a diesinking mistake) to 1798. Fifteen pieces in lot, nine holed for suspension. Mostly different, nice lot. $75.00-85.00+

Most of the series beginning with King Pharmond (417 AD) are from the drawings of Thomas Bernard (1650-1713), who had to "invent" portraits of the early rulers as none are known. The early medals are unsigned, and who executed them is uncertain, but it often is said that the bulk of the series was engraved by Jean Dassier (1676-1763) during his stay in Paris.

2105. US Civil War Sanitary Commission - Important French Universal Grand Prize Medal, 1867. The United States Sanitary Commission operated the Union field hospitals during the Civil War. Its origins were in Bridgeport, Connecticut, whose women formed an organization to provide relief and comfort to Civil War volunteers. The idea was copied by the US government, and the US Sanitary Commission was formed by a June 9, 1861, order of the Secretary of War. During the Civil War it distributed over $15,000,000 in supplies, and received $5,000,000 in donations, most given at the Civil War "Sanitary Fairs" that it held in a number of cities. (Its small medals for the Great Central Fair of Philadelphia are collected as Civil War tokens). The 1867 Universal Exposition in Paris was organized by Napoleon III's American dentist, Dr. Thomas Evans, which explains the odd connection between the French Government and the Civil War Sanitary Commission. "Napoleon III Empereur" around laureate bust of the Emperor / "Exposition Universelle de MDCCCLXVII a Paris" around two winged cherubs holding plaque over which is a laurel wreath, below is the French imperial eagle, "Grand-Prix" below.

In 1812 the Spanish reformers convened a legislature, which wrote a new Constitution that limited the king's powers. Ferdinand was restored in 1814 with the promise of respecting the 1812 Constitution, but he did not do so, and put down a number of revolts against his rule from 1814 to 1817. In January 1820, another revolt began as a military mutiny against sending troops to South America to crush the Spanish-American independence movements. Antonio Quiroga lead the rebel forces that took the city of Cadiz. The 1812 Constitution then was reestablished, and King Ferdinand became a virtual prison of his liberal subjects until 1823. "Dn.

2516. Unique Corrected Frederickburgh Lodge / George Washington Portrait Medal! By Lovett! "George Washington" around Washington's bust right / "Initd. in Fredericksburgh Lodge MD, Nov 4 1752" around compass, Masonic square and "G". Signed by Lovett ("G.H.L.") on obverse. According to the Rulau and Fuld's revision of Baker (page 140), Lovett struck ten medals before he realized that he had wrongly engraved the die "MD" as Frederickburgh is in Virginia! So his efforts were wasted, and he destroyed the reverse die, which explains why the medal is rare, and Rulau and Fuld value it at $100 in copper. But Rulau and Fuld then go on to write that a single example exists in brass "with a partially corrected state name attempting to correct MD to VA. This may have been done by the engraver, but we doubt it." This copper medal also has been corrected by changing "MA" to "V" by removing the "A" and the vertical portions of the "M". The change was so skillfully done that we did not notice the correction until reading Rulau and Fuld's comments. The existence of this previously unknown copper medal suggests that the change was, indeed, done by Lovett. 28 mm, only known example in copper and a UNIQUE piece.

Baker-497, Collins-323, and Rulau and Fuld (page 186), were all mystified about this piece. The mystery is solved by comparing it to the Spade Guinea Imitations in the Brunk collection, some of which are the same style, and like this piece are holed for suspension to be worn at celebrations. So this piece was made in England, and is similar to "In Memory of the Good Old Days" spade guinea imitations (see lots 2036-7). Rarity seven. Gilt brass.

2526. Unlisted George Washington "Silver Dollar" Gaming Token. This unusual piece is the size of a US silver dollar, and like a silver dollar it has a reeded rim and dentilated border. The obverse and reverse seem to be identical, with each consisting of a circle of stars around a dentilated circle within which is "George Washington, Born 22. Feby 1732 Died 14. Dec. 1799" around an unusual bust of Washington. But when examined closely, the bust, while identical on both sides, is centered slightly differently on the obverse and on the reverse. So this was made using a master punch of Washington's bust. Not illustrated in the Rulau-Fuld definitive revision of Baker, nor was it in the Garret or Ford auctions, various lists of US pattern coins and mint medals, etc. Unsigned. 37 mm, silvered brass, reeded edge.

2562. WY J K Moore Camp Brown Post Trader Territorial Token, ca. 1871. According to Richard Giedroyc, "J. K. Moore of Camp Brown in Wyoming may have been one of the first merchants to issue tokens in the state, perhaps as early as 1871 when it was a territory."

2584. Very Important Rough Riders Badge for the Spanish-American War! 1898. While Teddy Roosevelt today is associated with the Rough Riders, the idea for the enlistment of Western cowboys as "rough riders" in the US Cavalry actually originated with Jay L. Torrey. He managed a large cattle and cavalry horse ranch in Wyoming in the 1890s, and was the Republican Speaker of the House of the Wyoming State Legislature. At the beginning of the Spanish-American War he proposed that Western cowboys be recruited into special cavalry regiments, which he called "Rough Riders," and his proposal was accepted by the War Department. Torrey then was commissioned colonel of the 2nd Regiment of US Volunteer Cavalry, which recruited cowboys from the Western states. They were trained in Fort Russel, Wyoming, but Torrey and his men never reached Cuba. The train that was carrying Torrey's Rough Riders to Jacksonville, Florida, derailed in Tupelo, Mississippi, killing several of them, and severely injuring Torrey. Two years later, after recuperating, Torrey was considered as Republican Vice Presidential candidate on the William McKinley ticket. Ironically, the Rough Riders are now associated with Theodore Roosevelt, who was chosen as Vice President and became President when McKinley was assassinated. That is because by the time Torrey's Rough Riders reached Florida from Wyoming most of the fighting in the Spanish-American War had ended. So the regiment was mustered out without ever seeing combat. This important badge was issued for Torrey's Rough Riders during their stay at "Camp Cuba Libre" in Jacksonville, Florida, from June 28 to late October of 1898. Bronze hanger "Souvenir" from which is suspended a yellow ribbon with gold letters "Torrey's Rough Riders, Camp Cuba Libre, Jacksonville, Fla, 1898" from which is suspended a bimetal medal in the shape of a Maltese cross. The cross is bronze, 33 mm. In the center is a gilt brass 13 mm medal consisting of mounted cavalryman firing a rifle over his shoulder as on US Army shooting medals / Microscopic Lord's Prayer. The lot comes with five pages of information on Torrey and his Rough Riders. Choice XF. $300.00-350.00+

2617. PARTY TICKETS. Until the turn of the century all American ballots were printed by political parties, rather than the government, which is why they look "strange." They were made to be distinctive because until the Australian ballot reforms were adopted, voting was not a secret act in the US, and party hacks checked on everyone to make sure they voted for the "right party" by putting their "tickets" in an open and public ballot box. These ballots come from the age of "fusion politics," which is why some of them have multiple party names. In a couple of cases you can see that candidate names were changed at the last minute by inking in a new name, as the coalition of parties changes. All these ballots are rare, and each may well be unique. We have only seen a couple of examples in the last fifty years! During the late 1970s Brunk was traveling the back roads of Massachusetts and found this small group of party ballots in a barn! Someone had accumulated them a century before, and in some cases had written in pencil the likely year or the place where the ballot had been used.
