John Agre: The PCGS AU58 example bears one of the oldest provenances in colonial numismatics: Ex Stack’s October 1987 sale, lot #32; earlier New Netherland’s June 1958 ‘51st Sale’ lot #198; earlier Brand collection; earlier B.G. Johnson collection; earlier Dr. Hall collection; earlier Harlan Smith collection, earlier Bangs & Co’s sale of the Parmelee Collection, lot #598; earlier George Seavey collection; earlier Woodward’s May 1864 sale of the McCoy collection; earlier Colburn collection (founder of the Boston Numismatic Society), earlier a Captain Davenport, acquired by him around 1837.

The PCGS VF20 example is Ex Stack's May 2004 sale of the Ford Collection, Part II, earlier B. Max Mehl's May 1922 sale of the James Ten Eyck Collection, earlier S.H. & H. Chapman's December 1895 sale of the Richard Winsor Collection, lot #289.
