WAYTE RAYMOND'S COIN COLLECTOR'S JOURNAL BINDINGS

Last week Leon Majors asked: "Were all of the Wayte Raymond
Coin Collector's Journal publisher's annual editions in blue
cloth actually issued? I have editions 1-10, 12 and 14.
Are the others out there?

Dave Lange writes: "There is a complete, bound set of the CCJ
in my office. All but three of the volumes match the other
bound publications in our library and were bound at the same
time as these. I believe the three odd ones to be original
bindings done for Raymond. Volumes 6, 7 and 10 appear as follows:
Medium-dark blue cloth, the title stamped on the cover in gold
in three lines of skeletal, all caps, Roman letters, THE/COIN
COLLECTOR'S/JOURNAL. The title is repeated on the spine in solid,
sans-serif gold, with the volume number at the top of the spine
in Roman numerals and the cover dates at the bottom in Arabic
numerals.

If this format matches bound volumes in other libraries, then
it is very likely that all such bindings are original."

[My set came from the Donald Miller library, and is bound in a
light library blue cloth with two or more volumes per binding.
These have Miller's name in gilt on the cover.  I believe Miller
himself had these bound sometime in the 1960s.   Does anyone
else have bindings similar to those described by Dave Lange?
Any volumes 11 or 13?  -Editor]
