For those of us who collect Bust Dimes the book Early United States Dimes (EUSD) is the "bible". I'm doing some research on the book itself and have a few questions. I'm hoping that one or more of the readership might be able to provide answers.
1) how many of the regular edition were produced?
2) are all of the regular edition identical or are there different "varieties" possibly produced from more than 1 production run?
3) the deluxe edition (with different front and back piece facing pages than the regular edition) is supposedly limited to 100 copies. Did all of them sell?
4) is there any listing of the numbered copies -as in who they sold to? Did #'s 1-5 go to the five authors? Did #6 go to Jules Reiver? Etc.
I will have a few additional questions once I get some answers to these. Will write up the results for the JRJ.
Thanks in advance,
The annual meeting of the society at the March/Spring ANA convention is rapidly approaching. If anyone would like to be considered for our educational presentation there please let me know and I will make sure Dr. Peterson knows of your interest.
It is also time to begin thinking about our HOF nominations. You can nominate a person for either/or both the veteran and modern categories. Veteran nominations are for persons involved in bust numismatics before the advent of JRCS. Modern nominees are numismatists that have been a member of our organization. Nominations should be sent to Richard Meaney via the jrnewsletter(at)jrcs.org email address. The nominating committee will then vote on the nominees and inform us of their choices.
Dr Daniel Valentine

Al C. Overton
And the following modern members
Happy collecting to all.
