JR Newsletter: 17 December 2017 (374)

We have two contributions this week.  First, from Glenn Peterson:

Hello JRCS members,

    I am greatly looking forward the the FUN show January 4-7 and wanted to invite members to attend the John Reich Collectors Society meeting Friday January 5th at 8:30 in room 9 of the convention center. We are having an excellent speaker and collector of bust half dimes and bust halves, Jeff Friedman. He will speak about cuds on bust coinage. 

After his presentation I expect a lively discussion about CUDs how they are defined and how they develop. After the meeting please stay for the Bust Half Nut Club in the same room at 9:45 AM. We have moved up the BHNC meeting time to we can get back to the bourse or to the PCGS luncheon on time. At the BHNC meeting we will have guest speaker, Tim Osborne, advanced collector of bust half dollars.  He will speak about major auctions he has visited and maybe have some humorous stories about legendary numismatists. SO PLEASE ATTEND BOTH OF THE MEETINGS AND VISIT WITH YOUR COLLECTING FRIENDS!

Glenn Peterson MD, JRCS/BHNC
