CELEBRITY SUBSCRIBERS 

   Lawrence J. Lee, curator of the Byron Reed Collection 
   at the Durham Western Heritage Museum, was pictured in 
   an article in the May 23rd issue of Numismatic News.  The 
   article covers a presentation he made at the Central States 
   Numismatic Society show on research into "A Remarkable 
   Piece Lately Found in Philadelphia".  The title is taken from 
   a presentation by William Sumner Appleton to the Boston 
   Numismatic Society in 1861.  The piece, pedigreed to 
   Joseph Mickley and Charles Bushnell, is of unknown origin, 
   and Lee's "research into the legends, letter punches, and 
   iconography" is beginning to shed some light on the unusual 
   coin, whose legends read "Confederatio Americanus 
   Juvenus, Tyrannis in Peretum Abeit Terra (translated as 
   The Youthful American Confederation, Let the Earth be 
   Forever free From Tyrants."
