message from the publisher

Dear Readers, I hope this letter finds you, your family, friends and neighbors well. Here at Numismatic News, we are very thankful that everyone is staying healthy as we do our part to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus. With our main headquarters located in Stevens Point, Wis., closed temporarily, we have had to make some adjustments to how we do our work. On Monday, March 16, we began working remotely from our homes. This meant setting up home offices, commandeering the dining room table, whatever it took to keep the magazine going out on time, the newsletters in your inboxes and up-to-date news posted at www.numismaticnews.net. We’ve hauled our computers, printers, mountains of papers and all the other essentials home and are committed to keeping you connected with your…

1982 Small ‘D’ Cent I’m pretty sure I found a 1982-D small-print penny. How do I go about finding its worth and selling it? Mondo Sosa Address Withheld In Response to Mueller Error Coin In regards to Christian Mueller’s error coin in the March 17 Letters section, I have been an error/die variety collector for three decades. I am also a member of CONECA. This quarter cannot be a mint error. It would be impossible. It is probably made with hole punches and pieces pressed together. David Bisacca Address Withheld Error in March 17 Letter In the March 17 issue of Numismatic News, the 1895-S was transposed to read 1859-S in my 2/21/20 letter to your Morgan dollar question. I hope readers realized the error. Horst Seeley Address Withheld Editor’s Note: We regret the error and apologize for any…

response to mint’s ‘unintended consequences’

In the March 17 issue of Numismatic News, an anonymous writer suggested “The U.S. Mint Enters the Land of Unintended Consequences.” I would disagree, but first let me correct a common misconception. As a general rule, accountants (pejoratively called “bean counters” in the letter) don’t make the financial decisions that the writer attributed to them. They may do analysis work to support the decisions or fact-finding for middle managers and/or financial executives that actually make those decisions or recommendations to upper management. So, put the blame where it resides with the Mint management. As a CPA who has spent his entire 50-year career in various levels of accounting work, eventually in management and in diversified industries (none of it working for the Mint, however), I can say with confidence that…

silver proof set slated for april 17

If any collectors missed a coin released so far in 2020 or were unable to purchase a specific one, a 2020 silver proof set is the way to go. The U.S. Mint says it will release the set at noon EST April 17. Each set contains 10 proof coins bearing the “S” mintmark of the San Francisco mint, including quarters, a dime, a dollar and a half dollar that were all struck in 99.9 percent silver. There are five silver quarters from the America the Beautiful series including: National Park of American Samoa, Weir Farm National Historic Site, Silver River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.

Here are some answers sent from our e-newsletter readers. Read more responses at www.numismaticnews.com. How are you occupying your time during social distancing? I am refreshing myself by grading my coin collection. This entails some 10,000 pieces-plus in my uncertified collection. Michael Trainor Raleigh, N.C. I am spending the time doing school work as I am a college student and my classes have all been moved online. I am also going to attempt to keep busy by doing some reading of the coin books that I have and hopefully some other coin-related stuff. Joshua Wright Sale Creek, Tenn. I was hoping to be able to spend the extra time getting caught up on the ever-growing list of shows on my DVR, start reading some of those new books gathering dust on my shelf, and maybe get…
