JR Newsletter: 19 April 2020 (494)

(Sunday's issue of the JR Newsletter is getting published to this page a few days in advance due to a scheduling conflict by the page's editor)

A couple of weeks ago, JRCS President and Editor of The John Reich Journal consulted with the JRCS Board of Directors to address the next issue of the JR Journal.  Brad wrote, “I have the next journal almost print-ready, but will be unable to print it until the crisis is over.  I propose to offer it to the membership as well as non-members as an electronic file now. It will be printed and distributed when possible.”

This week, the following link to the latest issue of the JR Journal is available to readers of the JR Newsletter and whomever else readers or JRCS members wish to share it with.  The “cover page” of this JRJ is a membership form in hopes that when shared, others may choose to become members in the John Reich Collectors Society.  Feel free to share on coin message boards, coin clubs, and other “social media” with your friends who share an interest in the hobby.

Brad added, “I believe we will only produce two printed journals this year but they will both be larger than the normal 40 pages so we will only be short about a half journals-worth of information.”

JR Newsletter: 12 April 2020 (493)

More on Half Dime Lunch Rooms including Dime Lunch Rooms and Ten Cent Lunchrooms

I thank Pete Smith for his reply last week to my posting on Half Dime Lunch Rooms in JR Newsletter.  I did not see Pete’s information until after the JR Newsletter was published. 

David Finkelstein, JRCS member and researcher had sent the following information to me.  I sent a write-up on this “just as” I received the JR Newsletter last week.  What are the odds, but it happened.  Thus, we missed getting this information in the JR Newsletter last Sunday.

Both David and Pete found and referenced the same book on the Half Dime Lunch Room.  But interestingly, and logically, David found information on “Dime Lunch Rooms” and “10 Cent Lunch Rooms!”  And a few more fun advertisements.

Enjoy and stay safe.
