ON COUNTING THE NUMBER OF U.S. COINS

Saul Teichman writes: "With regard to the completeness
of the Eliasberg collection, it was missing some more
relatively common items such as an 1839 type 2 eagle
and, if I remember correctly, one of the 1866-S twenty
dollars was actually added for the sale. There is no
question, however, that the Eliasberg collection was the
finest both in grade and in completeness for a U.S.
collection ever formed.

The question is should he or the Clapp family get more
of the credit !!" Dick Johnson writes: "Cíon Mark
Borckardt, you set up an Excel spreadsheet and listed
all the U.S. coins including die varieties and patterns.
You say this totals "about 10,000 entries." Thatís not
very specific to answer the question of total number.
Please give us a more specific number. I wonder if you
have over 8,000 entries [650 above Breenís total].
If you do, this should be published, perhaps in
checklist form."
