Please include all of your cud examples, as well, as we are responding to collector demand to include this information.
Please respond by May 15, 2015 to ensure inclusion of your collection in this census. This is a hard cut-off date – no exceptions, since the completed census must appear in the pre-ANA John Reich Journal.
Does anyone know the etymology (origins) of the nickname 'Office-Boy' reverse for the 1820 JR-2 bust dime? Apparently Breen used it in his encyclopedia, but is there an earlier reference?
