JR Newsletter: 19 July 2015 (250)
Dr. Glenn Peterson provides this week's only contribution:
Hi Members of JRCS,
I wish to invite members and guests to come to the JRCS meeting at ANA on Wednesday, August 12th at 8 AM in Room 44 of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. We will have two presentations at the meeting. One will be given by our young numismatist member Garrett Ziss on the subject of bust coin images on paper currency. He has found several attributable images of bust coins on the paper money of that era. After Garrett's presentation, David Finkelstein will give a presentation about U.S. Mint history. I am sure members will find these presentations very interesting.
We will be having an open house for members of JRCS and guests on Wednesday evening. At that meeting we will conduct a die state study of selected bust half dimes, dimes, quarters and dollars. Members have voiced their preference of certain marriages to study for half dimes and quarters, but we have not yet heard from members about which bust dime and bust dollar would be interesting to study.
BUST DIME COLLECTORS AND BUST DOLLAR COLLECTORS PLEASE CONTACT ME gpeters(at)tds.net ABOUT DIE MARRIAGES THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO STUDY AT THE MEETING.
Members have suggested we study bust half dime 1829 LM-6 at the meeting and quarter collectors have suggested that we study 1836 B1 as these coins have very interesting die states. PLEASE BRING YOUR EXAMPLES OF THESE DIE MARRIAGES TO THE OPEN HOUSE FOR STUDY. The bust half dollar die state study will be done separately in conjunction with the Bust Half Nut Club meeting Thursday 2:00 PM and will focus on 1828 half dollars. Please bring your 1828 bust half dollars on Thursday afternoon.
Making friendships with fellow numismatists and sharing information about the coins we collect enhances the hobby. Please join us.
