JR Newsletter: 7 August 2016 (305)

The ANA Summer Show has likely already started for many JR Newsletter readers.  For others, the start of the show is a day or so away.  First contribution this week is a reminder (and some news) from David Perkins:

A reminder that the Kirk Gorman Collection of Capped Bust Dimes has a fixed price sale ongoing and a sealed bid seal to be conducted during the ANA (bids close Friday evening). 

Also, there is a HALF DIME sealed bid auction consisting of four LOGAN-McCLOSKEY PLATE COINS and a PCGS/CAC R-6 half dime.  The half dime auction closes on THURSDAY.  To learn more, contact David at wdperki(at), or Phone 303-902-5366.  

For specific questions on the half dimes, you may also contact Richard Meaney at richard.meaney(at) (he wrote the catalog for the half dimes).

Another reminder about the JRCS Meeting:

John Reich Collectors Society General Meeting:  To be held on Wednesday, August 10th from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM in room Huntington BC at the host hotel (Hilton Anaheim Hotel).  A highlight of the meeting will be an educational presentation by David Finkelstein.  David will present "Alexander Hamilton’s Influence on the Silver Coinage of 1794 and 1795."  All JRCS members, prospective members, and other interested parties are welcome to attend.
