GENERAL MORELOS ISSUES 

   Bob Dunfield  writes: "Thank you for the very entertaining and 
   informational E-Sylum newsletter! I look forward to reading it, 
   and keeping copies for the information and addresses, etc. 
   (The 'Dumb and Dumber' entry was hilarious!, although very 
   sad, in a way). 

   I am continuing research on the 8 Reales "SUD" issues of 
   General Morelos and his Captains.  At this point, I have many 
   references, including the very informative hardbound 'The Julius 
   Guttag Collection of Latin American Coins',  arranged by Edgar 
   Adams, a Quarterman publication, copyright 1929, reprinted 
   in 1974.  There are many photos, and descriptions of coins 
   without photos, and I think, one of the first attempts to catalog 
   the 8 Reales copper SUD coins by die variety, and approximate 
   the date of manufacture. It is an excellent reference book. I would, 
   however, like to ask the members if they might have any sale 
   catalogues that they might wish to sell, or recommend, especially 
   those that have pictures and descriptions of the 8 Reales SUD 
   pieces, in copper, and especially those coins struck or cast in 
   silver.  Anything recommended or offered for sale would be 
   greatly appreciated! Many thanks, " 

   [Editor's note:  Mr. Dunfield may be reached at this email 
   address: Twbcbooks@aol.com.   While it doesn't have any 
   new illustrations of coins, my article in the Spring 1996 issue 
   of The Asylum (Vol. XIV, Nos. 2-4, pp19-23) discusses the 
   pamphlet "Sketch of the Coinage of the Mexican Revolutionary 
   General Morelos Based upon an Important Find", by Lyman 
   Low (1886) ]
