JR Newsletter: 3 June 2012 (91)

Louis Scuderi provided further information in response to Rick Beale's question about complete sets of Capped Bust Dimes:

For the record, in addition to the six listed collections in the most recent census we must also include the Lovejoy and Logan sets which were both complete at 122 varieties. So the total number of complete sets at 122 is actually eight. I have heard rumor of one additional set complete at 122 but not listed in the census and not verified. So far, I have not heard of anyone with all 123.


Bob Stark offered this contribution about counterfeit coins:

Here is a disheartening article. Much too common.

I await each Sunday's issue--often disappointed that more is not written about the early dollars--great coins that they are.

Best wishes
Bob Stark
