JR Newsletter: 21 February 2016 (281)

We have two contributions for this week's JR Newsletter.  The first comes from Dave Lange:

In response to Winston Zack's speculation that the new specimen of 1796 JR-7 may have been attributed by using the VIG that he co-authored, I can confirm that this was indeed how I identified the coin. I picked up a copy of this book at last summer's ANA convention and have been using it in place of the JRCS book ever since.
