Hi JRCS members,
   I am looking forward to ANA this year in Chicago. I am coordinating several of the meetings so I want to announce these meetings. 
BHNC open meeting (everyone invited to participate) will be on Thursday August 7th at 2:00 pm in room 42. After greeting members and guests we will have a program on double struck bust halves. I will be presenting the study of the double profiles and  have found some interesting facts regarding the double profile halves. Please come and engage in the discussion about how the mint came to produce these interesting coins. After the meeting we will have a die state study of 1827 bust halves part 2 O-125 and above. 
Bust Quarter Collector Society will meet on Wednesday August 6 at 2:00 pm in room 40.
John Reich Collector's Society will have it annual meeting Wednesday morning August 6th at 8:00 AM in room 22 of the convention center.  David Finkelstein will be giving an educational presentation at the JRCS meeting.
     Please come to the annual meetings -- I look forward to visiting with everyone. Friendship in the numismatic community is what I value most in the hobby!

Auction Appearances & Prices Realized
for Early United States Quarters 1796 - 1838

By Steve M. Tompkins


The 5th edition of Auction Appearances & Prices Realized for Early United States Quarters 1796 - 1838 or the AAPR is at the printer! They should be ready just prior to the ANA.

This compilation encompasses over 6000 auction listings and almost 200 pages, from over 10 years of study and research, and up to 20 years of statistical information relating to the individual die marriages found in the Bust Quarter series.

Listed on each page you will find much more than just a list of auction appearance and what that particular coin sold for. You will also find a listing of the grading service and the unique serial number given to each coin when available, as well as die stage information and cataloger comments. All grades from all die marriages of the Bust Quarter series from 1796 to 1838 are included in this list.

Some of the benefits include: Tracking pedigrees and price fluctuations. An updated condition census for each marriage. See rarities of both the whole die marriage and grade rarities within each die marriage. Track the price differences of  NGC & PCGS, as well as the addition of a CAC sticker. All for less than a tank of gas!
