We are less than one month away from the deadline for submissions for the half dime census!
The officers of the JRCS are soliciting your half dime inventory information for inclusion in the Spring 2019 issue of the John Reich Journal.
Please email your complete inventory listing, including all duplicates, of all your 1792, Draped Bust, Flowing Hair and Capped Bust half dimes to me. Any format that my iMac computer can read will work, so most spreadsheets and word processing files will be fine. Even if you have a written list, you can take a picture of that written list and email it to me if you would like. Please make the subject line of your email “Half Dime Census” and include your name and JRCS number.
My email address is: richard.meaney(at)yahoo.com
If you prefer, you may mail paper copies to me here:
3060 N Lazy Eight Court, Suite 2
Wasilla AK 99654
Please include the following information to the best of your ability:
- Grade of each coin. Grading company info (NGC, ANACS, CAC, PCGS, raw) is not needed.
- Die Marriage or remarriage for each coin
- Cud information for your coins with known cuds. For example, if you report an 1830 LM-5 half dime in VF-20, I will assume the coin does not have a cud. If you have one with a cud, something like “1830 LM-5 VF20 cud” will suffice.
- If you would like to participate, but wish for your contribution to remain anonymous, just let me know.
Please respond no later than March 7, 2019 to ensure inclusion of your collection in this census. This is a hard cut-off date. Questions? Let me know!
