The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 2, January 9, 2000, Article 9

LAST WORD ON "THE GREAT DEBATE"?  

   A four-column comment article by Q. David Bowers 
   regarding the "Great Debate" over Western Assay Bars 
   appears in the same issue of the ANS newsletter.  While 
   the article contains much of interest to numismatic 
   bibliophiles, I'll just quote one paragraph, which follows 
   up on an earlier mention in The E-Sylum:  "Researcher 
   Dan Owens has completed the manuscript for a new 
   book, the working title of which is "An Encyclopedia of 
   California Coiners and Assayers Related to Numismatics, 
   1849-1863."  Upon publication, Mr. Buttrey will find 
   hundreds of pages of documentation about firms that 
   issued gold bars, nearly all of this material having come 
   from readily available sources."  

   The ANS newsletter's editor notes, after stating the usual 
   disclaimer that all such articles and publications do not 
   represent the opinion of the ANS, its officers, and staff, 
   that "this communication will conclude discussion on this 
   topic in any of the publications of the American Numismatic 
   Society."
