    @FlyingAl.... Wow... that is a lot to digest. I have read it the first time... will have to go back through it - for my own edification. This is not an area I am familiar with, so, for me, it is a total learning experience. For that, I thank you. Cheers, RickO

    Outstanding write-up!

    Somebody get this to the ANA for publication, and a chance for the QDB YN Numismatic Literary Award.

    Also, if you need a review edit before submitting there, let me know and I will gladly take the time.

    The deadline was April 1st If I remember correctly. I did my submission on "The Cameo Proof Cents and Nickels of 1942", I can also PM you that if you want to read it.

    Edit: the aforementioned essay I took much more time with and found much more in depth sources, so I like to think it's a little better than this one :smile:

    What a great informative post. I think patterns are a mostly overlooked history of our coinage and glad that someone more dedicated than myself took on this challenge and quite successfully if I might add. Thank you.
