The JRCS is having a meeting at the March Whitman Baltimore convention on Friday afternoon March 28, at 4 PM. We need a volunteer to host the meeting and someone to give a short presentation. Can anyone help us with either position?
We also need to finalize the die marriages we want to study at the upcoming EAC convention. If anyone has a suggestion on what they would like to see please contact me as soon as possible at bkaroleff(at)

We also need volunteers to man the tables at the happening. I look forward to seeing you there.

Yet only a few privileged researchers have ever examined even small portions of these hand-written volumes. This 4-DVD set also includes original mint journals of all silver and gold assay coins from 1818-1840, the Director’s Annual Reports from 1796 to 1827, Mint auditor’s reports to Congress from 1796 to 1820, and selected Mint documents from 1786 to 1795. Brand new in shrink-wrap. Never opened. List price: $75.00. First one gets it at $29.95 postpaid.
