Yesterday I picked up a really cool collection.  It was a bit of a time capsule.  It was formed by a president of a small bank in New England, who was employed from the 1920's through the early 1960's.

He obviously was a bit of a collector.  He must have had his tellers put aside any unusual coins and paper money they came across (there were 3 1907 High Relief $20's, for example!).  

Among the neatest items was this, though.  It is an 1831 Bust Half that was made into a love token.  Fantastic workmanship, right down to the reflections of the boats and the building in the lake.

I have never seen one so fine, so I thought I would share it with the JRCS membership.

The latest issue of the John Reich Journal has been printed, stuffed in the envelope with postage and is waiting for the mailman on Monday afternoon.  Everyone can expect to receive their copy late in the week.  If you do not receive yours by then please drop me a line at bkaroleff(at) and let me know.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the convention.  Travel safely.
