    MORSE CODE CHANGES

    06/02/2013

    Highlight: I was wondering about the Chubbuck script and token... The Morse Code on these two items is drastically different than what I learned in scouting and in the Military. I wonder when it was changed. Excellent question! I recall learning that the distress call "SOS" in Morse code is ... --- ... (dot dot dot dash dash dash dot dot dot). On the Chubbuck pieces "S" is "dot dot dot" but "O" is not three dashes - it's two dots. An internet search revealed that what I learned was the International Morse Code. Chubbuck shows what is known today as American Morse Code. Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia. -Editor Morse code has been in use for more than 160 years?longer than any other electrical coding system.

"This want the New England Numismatic and Archaeological Society propose to supply by publishing Price Lists of all the important Coin Sales immediately after their occurrence.' "The prices of these Lists will be twenty-five cents for a list of four pages, and fifty cents for one of eight pages.' "That the Society may know
