THIS WEEK IN NUMISMATIC HISTORY 

   By coincidence I received in the mail this week lot #156 from 
   Charles Davis' recent sale.  Dated April 2, 1874, it is a 
   "Circular to Collectors"  from J. Colvin Randall and John W. 
   Haseltine describing their efforts to strike copies of Lovett's 
   1861 Confederate Cent from the original dies obtained from 
   the engraver.    Most of what is known today about these 
   restrikes can be traced to this interesting piece of 
   numismatic ephemera.
