The JR Newsletter is the official e-newsletter of the John Reich Collectors Society. The purpose of the John Reich Collectors Society (JRCS) is to encourage the study of numismatics, particularly United States gold and silver coins minted before the introduction of the Seated Liberty design, and to provide technical and educational information concerning such coins.
Not much input this week, but the input we have includes images!

I wanted to share pictures of my 1834 JR-4 which shows die cracks in the area of the discovery CUD. The first zoomed image doesn't show the crack above the "T", but after shedding some light on the situation you can faintly see it through the crust. Hope this helps with the die state progression.
