Please stop by Table 818  if you are attending the Whitman Baltimore Coin Show next week (Wednesday March 29 through Saturday April 1, 2017).  

 W. David Perkins Numismatics, Gerry Fortin Rare Coins, and Jim Matthews Rare Coins will have 16 cases (!) of Early Silver, Copper, and Gold coins for you to view and / or purchase. Our inventory includes a fair number of R-6 through R-8 die marriages, and early U.S. Coins in popular late die states.  The below photo is one of three examples known for the 1798 B-33, BB-117 (R-8) die marriage.  You can see this coin at Perkins table at the show.

 We now have three tables, all under Table 818 (highlighted in green on the map below).  We are located  a short distance to the right of the show entrance in between Heritage, Stack’s-Bowers, Whitman, and the U.S. Mint. 

 Most of the coins we will have at the show can be viewed in advance at and  We also will be buying coins at the show.

 See you in Baltimore!  Thanks.

We also have a reminder about the JRCS Hall of Fame:

 Nominations for the JRCS Hall of Fame class of 2017 are now open.

The membership is encouraged to send nominations for the Hall of Fame at any time. You can nominate candidates for either the veteran (those who contributed before the advent of JRCS) or the modern (those who have been members of JRCS) categories. Please include any pertinent information about the nominee that you feel necessary. Nominees will then be voted on by the HOF committee and the inductees will be announced at the annual meeting at the ANA convention in the summer. We look forward to seeing your nominations!
