OROSZ ROPER ARTICLE PUBLISHED 

   New research by NBS Board Member Joel J. Orosz graces 
   the cover of the January, 2001 issue of The Numismatist, the 
   journal of the American Numismatic Association.  "Dr. Lewis 
   Roper: Dentist, Photographer, Numismatist"  reviews the 
   interesting life of Roper, whose coin collection "changed the 
   face of numismatics" in America when sold on February 20, 
   1851. 

   Orosz credits Dan Owens for locating a death notice for 
   Dr. Roper: August 21, 1850: "Roper, Dr. L., in San 
   Francisco, of Philadelphia, Pa, aged about 44 years, 
   married"   Mr. Owens published his research on California 
   Coins and Assayers last year (see The E-Sylum,  November 
   5, 2000, Volume 3, Number 46).
