JR Newsletter: 30 October 2016 (317)

David Perkins wrote with this week's only contribution:

First of all, I very much enjoyed Rick Andrews' contribution and photos to last week’s issue of the JR Newsletter.  Like many JRCS members, collectors, and students of early silver, I love late die states and cuds! 
I will again have Table 818 at next week’s Whitman Baltimore Convention, where I will be setting up with Gerry Fortin.  Together we will have 12 cases of better quality Flowing Hair, Draped Bust, Capped Bust, Seated and other coins for sale. 
Included in my cases are a number of better Draped and Capped Bust Dimes, over a dozen new Capped Bust Half Dollars (including 13 CBHs in AU grades), and over 50 early dollars.  I will also have a fair number of half dimes and early quarters.  Gerry picked up an exceptional 1802/1 Silver Dollar in PCGS AU55 CAC at last week’s Denver Coin Show, and should have an awesome 1839 Liberty Seated Dime struck from a shattered die.  Even if you don’t collect Seated coins you will enjoy seeing and studying this neat late die state example.  Most of these coins can been seen on our websites. Our website addresses are listed below.
Lastly, a reminder that JRCS members and guests are invited to attend the JRCS meeting and club program while at Baltimore.  The meeting is scheduled from 4:30 to 5:30pm in Room 301.  Dr. Glenn Peterson will be giving a talk on the early Quarters and the upcoming Quarter Census to be published in the John Reich Journal.  Hope to see you there, and if you can please try to bring a coin or two to share with the members!
Please stop by to see us and say hello at Table 818 in Baltimore!
