Robert Rodriguez (2020)
This presentation by Rob Rodriguez covers the major elements of a 50 page analysis challenging the authenticity of the silver plug in the 1792 Morris Silver Center Cent Judd-1. It is among the most extensive investigations conducted on a 1792 pattern coin to date. The primary research conclusion, the silver plug being a fabrication created AFTER the coin was produced and emitted from the US Mint, is publicly supported by a wide array of numismatic experts. This presentation was part of the 2020 Newman Numismatic Portal Symposium, held virtually, August 28-30, 2020.
