The EAC/JRCS convention is coming this week!  May 2-5 the show will be held in Newark (Columbus), Ohio.  Thursday night the 2nd will feature the "Happenings" where we get together and study specific die marriages of the different series of coins.  We have decided to study the following coins this year;

Half dime 1836 LM-1
Dime 1820 JR-2
Quarter 1836 B-3
Half dollars 1807 O-111 and 1823 O109

Bring your coins to the show and share in the excitement of displaying your treasures next to those brought by other members.  We look forward to seeing many of you there.

We also still need volunteers to help with the silver happening room on Thursday evening.  If you are interested in helping please contact Brad at bkaroleff (at)

See you in Columbus!


Also from Brad:  The latest issue of the John Reich Journal has been mailed.  If Volume 23/Issue 1 is not in your mailbox after the next week or so, contact Brad directly at bkaroleff (at)


From Richard Meaney:

I received my JR Journal this week and as usual, it's a good one!  Also included was a yellow sheet of paper.  I encourage each member to read BOTH sides of the yellow sheet of paper.  One side has a notice calling for information on the Half Dime census to be sent to Steve Crain no later than May 30th.  The other side is the ballot for the 2012 Jules Reiver Literary Award.  The ballot is also due no later than May 30th.  Please note that you should mail your ballot to Steve Crain.  Steve's address is printed on the side of the yellow sheet that calls for Half Dime census information.
