JR Newsletter: 27 February 2015 (230)
This week's JR Newsletter is early due to the editor's schedule. As such, it is necessarily abbreviated as some contributions that may come in late on Friday or early Saturday will not be added. The next issue of the JR Newsletter will be after the March ANA Show. We feature two new contributions this week and a reminder.
John Wilson inquired regarding one of the halves that W. David Perkins wrote about last week. He asked, "Do you know the reason for the odd color in the crevices around the MS66? I have seen it on other various coins. Almost looks like lacquer that someone has tried to remove, but I doubt that explanation."

Denis Loring wrote to clarify discussion concerning EAC Conventions:
A correction to last week's JR Newsletter regarding the EAC convention: A room has been set aside for a silver happening, if someone wants to coordinate one. Also, please remember that anyone may attend the EAC convention. Membership in EAC is only required for voting at the annual meeting, holding a table and bidding in the Sale.

Finally, from the editor:
This will serve as the final reminder to JRCS members and other collectors who plan to attend the Portland, Oregon ANA Show next week. The John Reich Collectors Society will meet on Friday, March 6 at 8:30 AM in Room E143. The highlight of the JRCS meeting will be a presentation by Winston Zack. Winston has developed a brief presentation on the topic of contemporary counterfeit bust dimes.
