BASHLOW PLATINUM CONFEDERATE CENT RESTRIKE INFORMATION SOUGHT

Harold Levi writes: "In a recent article I wrote for
Coin World, I included information received from David
Laties, Bashlow's partner at the time the so-called
second Confederate cent restrikes were made.  Laties
stated that a large number of coins were struck in
platinum, but all were melted when a deal fell through
that Bashlow was working on.

In a recent e-mail, Jesse Patrick (The Patrick Mint)
stated that as a dealer he has handled a platinum
Bashlow restrike.  According to his information, one
or more of the platinum restrikes were found in Walter
Breen's estate when he died.  Patrick believes that
three copies escaped melting.

Can anyone shed any light on this issue?  My e-mail
address is haroldlevi@hotmail.com."
