The copy I received is not merely half-quality photocopies - it is a spiral bound and covered book. The print copy is good and the photos are quite good enough to see major diagnostics such as scroll position, star position, etc. Far more of a reproduction than I anticipated. With binding, covers, printing, labor, and Express shipping, one copy far exceeds the paltry $20 donation to JRCS. For donating his time and obvious financial commitment, he said it was a way for him to give back to the hobby.
Very cool David. Thanks again!
In 'Numismatic Art in America', Cornelius Vermeule noted, "In commenting on the Liberty, one critic remarked that the artist had put a picture of his fat mistress on the coins."
Who was this 'one critic'? Where and when were his comments published?
This will serve as the final announcement for the upcoming EAC/JRCS convention in Portland, Oregon held May 12-15 at the Lloyd Center Doubletree Hotel. Room registration is cutoff on April 11 for guaranteed rates (you may do better online also). We have a number of early silver speakers given by JRCS members and several prominent early silver displays. I invite any questions.
