ANOTHER REASON FOR AN ASSAY COMMISSION 

   Donn Pearlman, in his "Pearlman's People" column in 
   the August 2000 issue of The Numismatist, wrote a 
   tongue-in-cheek Question & Answer segment using 
   real questions frequently submitted by hobby newcomers. 
   Here's one gem: 

   Q: Why do so many of the new golden dollars have 
        ugly spots and tarnish? 

   A: Obviously, the Mint used impure gold.
