About this set: Besides business strikes, the Spencer Collection includes English Pattern and Proof coins from collections dating back at least to Captain Douglas-Morris. The Douglas-Morris collection in turn, contained coins from earlier famous collections, including Hyman Montagu (assembled during the latter half of the nineteenth century), J.G. Murdock, and the Nobleman sale conducted in 1922. Coins from subsequent auctions also contributed to the Douglas-Morris collection, such as Reginald Huth (1927), G. Hamilton Smith (1927), S.A.H. Whetmore (1943); and Lady Duveen (1964). The Douglas-Morris coins were sold by Sotheby & Co. on the 26th day of November, 1974, and much of the information above mentioned comes from the Sotheby catalogue entitled "The Distinguished Collection of English Gold Coins 1700-1900 formed by Captain K.J. Douglas-Morris". The Spencer Collection of Half Guinea Proofs and Pattern Proofs also contains the finest known example of the 1762 Pattern Proof, WR 125, R4, Ex Selig Collection and more recently, Ex Terner Collection; Plain Edge, PCGS PR63 Cameo.
