BOLEN COLLECTION SURFACES  

  At the ANA convention in Portland, I purchased a copy of Edwin 
  Johnson's rare 1882 monograph, "J. A. Bolen's Medals, Cards, and 
  Fac-Similes"  The book lists all items produced by the die sinker. 
  It came in handy recently when I looked at a marvelous, large  
  collection of Bolen medals.  Not only did the collection contain 
  multiple high-grade varieties of the Bolen medals, it included 
  several of Bolen's actual die punches.   I wish I could say I own 
  the collection, but it's still a neat "Show-N-Tell topic for  
  U.S. numismatists.
