JR Newsletter: 17 April 2016 (289)

We have two contributions this week.

David Finkelstein provided us with an original article, "The 1794 Congressional Committee Appointed To Examine The Mint – Part 1."  By clicking the following link, you will be able to read this excellent account:


David Perkins wrote with the following information for current, past, and prospective members of the John Reich Collectors Society.

The next issue of the John Reich Journal is close to being published and mailed.  This will be the first of three issues of Volume 26. 
JRCS dues are paid by Volume, not calendar year, thus if you have not sent in your dues check please do this as soon as possible.  New members are also encouraged to send in your membership application and check.  You will receive all three issues of Volume 26. 
If anyone has an address change for JRCS please e-mail the information directly to me at wdperki(at)
Our annual meeting will be held at the 2016 ANA World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim in August.  We hope to see you there!
W. David Perkins, Treasurer
