QUICK QUIZ ANSWER #1  

   A few subscribers came through with correct answers to last 
   week's quiz questions.   First question:  

    What well-known U.S. colonial numismatic items trace 
    their pedigree through the Bank of New York?  

     Tom DeLorey, Bill Swoger, and Michael Schmidt correctly 
     identified the answer as a hoard of Fugio Cents, the first coin 
     authorized by the Continental Congress,  minted by James 
     Jarvis.  [See "The Fugio Cents", by Alan Kessler, 1976]. 
     Bill Swoger gets bonus points for noting that the "$7 1/2 
     and $15 gold pieces struck by Ephraim Brasher" can also be 
     traced through the Bank of New York.
