A bracketed (via ...) denotes that coin was bid on, by an agent, for its recipient. (Bold print indicates coin was plated, and may be seen, in the associated catalog)
(Coins highlighted in blue are permanently impounded and not available to collectors) (Coins highlighted in gray have a pedigree lapse of 30 years or more or are otherwise suspect, and may, in fact, appear elsewhere in the listings but with unknown linkage. Pedigree strings have been lost and, because they were never plated anywhere, may prove impossible to restore except through perseverance and sheer luck. There is no 100% guarantee of the accuracy of listings!!!

                                       The following note accompanied the offering of this coin in Lyman H. Low’s 1905 sale:

A statement accompanies this cent purports it was found at the site of the old United States Hotel, in Chester, Penn., when it was demolished some years ago. Both Washington and Jefferson were patrons of this hostelry and on the way to their southern homes it was their custom to make a stopover there, sometimes occupying a certain room jointly. It was in this particular apartment that the cent was found. Possibly George and Thomas were matching or tossing pennies, and in the excitement that followed, this one rolled away unnoticed.”
