1802 HALF DIME ARTICLES FOUND  

   In a note to David J. Davis, Joel Orosz forwarded references 
   to two items regarding U.S. 1802 Half Dimes:  

   "The first is "Another 1802 Half Dime Unearthed", about a 
   specimen discovered in Missouri that Ebenezer Locke Mason 
   had purchased, in Mason's Coin Collectors' Herald, for 
   September of 1879.  

   The second is "The 1802 Half Dime" , which follows up on the 
   story, and reveals the source to be E.F. Gambs, a St. Louis 
   Stamp and Coin Dealer.  This is in Mason's Coin Collectors' 
   Herald, for December of 1879.  This issue also carries an ad 
   for Gambs' business."
