    The Lake Michigan and Springdale Collections

    Highlight: From Presidential Coin and Antique Company’s sale of the Charles Littman Collection, December 2003, Lot 649. The backing is probably the best hint on dating, showing a portion of newspaper upon which the splasher was initially poured. It shows a portion of text, apparently in hand-set type, advertis- ing a patent solution for “female disease” marketed by a Dr. O.P. Ha(missing). Determining the identity of this would-be gynecolo- gist will help date the splasher more precisely. The desirability of this piece does not hinge upon its dating. This obverse, made by the man who engraved the 1793 Liberty Cap cent, is the only American-produced inclusion in the Comitia Americana series. No true original exists, though an unattractive and crudely struck lead soft-metal strike in the Ford Collection

    Dick Johnson writes: "The Senate passed legislation last
    week that authorized the U.S. Mint to strike presidential
    dollar coins, much like the successful statehood quarter
    dollar program. It's similar to House bill passed earlier
    this year; backers say President Bush is sure to sign this
    bill into law.

    In addition to the presidential dollar coins, it authorizes
    changing the reverse of the Lincoln Cent in 2009, the
    bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. The cent design
