CASTENHOLZ WALL CHART SOUGHT
In the category of "things found while looking up other
things", your Editor came across an advertisement in the
March, 1972 issue of "The Numismatic Messenger",
issued by Castenholz and Sons of Pacific Palisades,
California (Vol. 2, No. 3, p61). It was for a "Table of
the Coinage of the United States of America - a wall
chart listing the entire regular coinage of the U.S.A.
The complete regular coinage can be seen at a glance.
Each mint is arranged separately, and the arrangement
is by date and denomination. Every coin type is included,
in abbreviated form which avoids a cluttered format.
Even the youngest collector will have no difficulty in
using this table. The chart is 22" x 28" and printed on
fine book paper. $3.00 each plus 25c postage."
Do any of our readers have a copy of this chart? I've
never seen one, but it sounds very useful - something
I might have tried my hand at myself someday if it
hadn't already been done. Does anyone know what
might have become of the Castenholz stock? Is there
a cache of these charts out there somewhere?
