Heritage auctions will be presenting the John McCloskey collection at the upcoming FUN convention and a dedicated internet sale following in February. The collection is rich in Seated Liberty coins, Classic Head gold and Bust die marriages. John was one of the most prolific numismatic researchers of the twentieth century co-authoring the standard die marriage references for bust half dimes, dimes and Classic head gold. He was a founding member of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club as well as the John Reich Collectors Society having been also elected to both of their Hall of Fames.

Collectors should find something of interest in the sale in collector grades with a few condition census examples sprinkled throughout the sale.

So, who is going to the convention? Be sure to attend the LSCC and JRCS meetings. I’m sure there will be a lot to talk about!

Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?

A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.

A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.
