The Numismatist staff has continued to address comments and suggestions and the current product is quite nice.Anyway, ANA members should be sure to check out (among other things) George Fuld's article on 'waldo newcomer: Collector Extraordinaire', Rich Bottles' neat piece on coins encased in celluloid buttons, and David Lange's opinion column on the state of the U.S. Mint's commemorative coin program.Editor Barbara Gregory's 'Editor's Desk' column is illustrated this month with a great caricature sketch of her.

    HERITAGE MAGAZINE B. MAX MEHL ARTICLE

    11/24/2013

    est Heritage Magazine for subscribers and Legacy Club members. Within it is a multi-page article with various correspondence to B. Max Mehl from prominent Mehl auction/private treaty consignors. But what is unusual about the lengthy article are the numerous rare pictures of the famous numismatists, many or most of whom I've not seen images of before. Good close-up bust images of James Ten Eyck, waldo newcomer, William A Philpott, William Atwater, King Farouk and of course Mehl himself, together with their oft-fancy letterheads. Of course Atwater, Newcomer and Ten Eyck are legendary and, I believe, images are quite rare.

    orsed and encapsulated on February 28. If there are any United States coins that surely do not need to be slabbed —ever— they are the 1 5 known 1 804 dollars. They have been studied, sur- veyed and scrutinized to the point that Miss Liberty’s bustline may be more familiar than Marilyn Mon- roe’s. Well, maybe not, but you get my point. There is no evidence that John W. Haseltine, Phineas T. Adams, waldo newcomer, F.C.C. Boyd, Amon Car- ter, L.R. French or any other previous owner of this particular specimen ever attempted to sonically seal it. Messrs. Yaffe are the first. Devoting three pages of photos and narrative to this extremely rare and historically significant coin, Stack’s L.R. French Jr. Family Collection sale catalog concluded, “We trust that the charisma of this particular 1 804 dollar may als

    SUMMER 1999 31 Research Aids (continued) the provenance of the collection. I have a few ideas, but they are not based on clear facts: • Some of the coins sound like Valentine plate coins, so that collection may somehow be involved. • The 1796 dime envelope mentions Colonel Green. He is surely not known as a variety collector; however, he is believed to have purchased a significant portion of the waldo newcomer collection. Newcomer had an extensive collection and was in- terested in varieties. This Morgenthau catalog also includes many interesting varieties of early dimes and half dollars. More study would al- most surely yield additional interesting information. >t Sources 1. Davis, David J., Russell J. Logan, Allen F. Lovejoy, John W. McCloskey, and William L. Subjack.

    ly disappeared from sight only to reappear in F. C.C. Boyd’s collection several years later with little record of a sale ever occurring . 40 But just as this new infusion of scarce coinage began to freely cir- culate within the Colonial collector community, several high-profile American collectors dramatically impacted this relatively narrow area of numismatics. Virgil Brand, Col. E. H. R. Green, waldo newcomer, and the resurgent John Work Garrett changed the landscape of American numismatics in the early twentieth century. These four collectors — all active around the same time and endowed with nearly unlimited resources — were buying virtually every coin available to the hobby. Moreover, each had some degree of interest in Colonial coins. Virgil Brand, a Chicago brewer, began collecting coins in 1889.
