JR Newsletter: 14 January 2018 (378)

Timothy Mahr wrote about last week’s JR Newsletter “headline coin”

I thought that the 1827 50C at the top of this newsletter looked great, then it started to actually look familiar, and then I realized that this is the coin I just won in Sheridan's MB No. 46!  I never thought that a coin from my humble collection might ever make it onto the JR Newsletter page.  What fun!  Well, it won't be my coin for a few more days... even still, what a nice surprise!

Rich Uhrich wrote with a note about his upcoming retirement:

I have decided to retire effective February 11, 2018.  I love the people involved in coins, including my clients, my table assistants, and other dealers.  I will continue to be a collector, and I expect to visit some of the major shows such as FUN, Baltimore, and Summer ANA, but only for a couple days at a time.   My last show as a coin dealer will be February 10 in Sebring, FL.  For those of you who have coins on consignment with me, I will be emailing you a list of those coins, so that I can return those coins to you.

I want to thank all of my clients over the past twelve years, my table assistants, my mentors, dealers with whom I have done business, and most importantly, my wife Karen.  I wish all of you the best in the future!


Editor's Note:  Rich didn't mention it in his email, but when I went to his web site I saw that he is having a sale.  You might want to check it out.  Rich Uhrich Rare US Coins
