    t its additional pedigree listing by Breen is ac curate However ii fonly one instance viz the specimen currently in the Connecticut State Library collection does he trace the Pedigree before the begin ning of the Twentieth century This causes me to wonder how many early pieces have not been included The specimen in Breen s listing referred to as Thomas Elder circa 19 1 Nrs R Henry norweb collection has not appeared in the sales pertaining to the Norweb collection All other specimens in this listing have been traced to their current owners and except for the George J Bauer specimnn which has remained in the same numismatist s collection since beign acquired by private treaty has Changed owners relatively recently Personally I find the use of Pseudonyms by collectors puzzlin

    e is Garry Apelian and my EAC is 2686 I joined EAC in late 1986 and I wanted to write to you concerning my experience with Bowers and Merena last summer with an 1854 half cent Being a half cent collector I had seen in their summer Rare Coin Review of last year an 1854 B 2 half cent that they listed as AU 55 R 3 for 199 00 Not knowing the exact variety or the history behind it I took out my norweb catalogue and saw another 1854 B 2 that sold for around 2000 00 Of course now I know that is your coin Anyways I thought to myself what a bargain although I needed the variety for my collection and was going to buy it regardless Of course I had expected the coin to be already sold but to my surprise it wasn t and they sent it out on approval to me I was pleased with the coin when I received

    4 sale of the Anderson Dupont collection was the first example It was catalogued as 90 copper and 10 nickel but without supportive documentation From my background as a Ph D chemist it is my belief that non destructive elemental analysis was unavailable in 1954 that could have distinguished between 90 10 and 88 12 copper nickel alloys The second 1856 B 2b example listed by Breen was the norweb coin Lot 138 was catalogued as such when the Norweb collection was auctioned by Bowers and Merena in 1987 It was catalogued with the comments we are not aware that any specific metallic analysis has ever been made of this coin Its weight was given as 70 8 grains Note that this weight lies between the high of 70 68 grains given bv Breen for 1856 B 2b and the low of 70 98 grains given for 18
