F.C.C. BOYD COUNTERSTAMPED BUST HALF INFORMATION SOUGHT

Ray Flanigan writes: "I'm looking for some help on F.C.C. Boyd.
I recently came across a Bust Half with FCC BOYD counterstamped
across the face.  Boyd was a prominent numismatist in the early
1900s, joined the ANA and served 3 terms as President of the
New York Numismatic Club.  That's where my meager library left
me.  Does anyone know of sources of information on FCC Boyd or
how the coins came to be counterstamped?  My email address is
RFlanigan@ec.rr.com"

[We've published some information on Boyd in previous E-Sylum
issues; here are a few of interest:

JOHN J. FORD JR. COLLECTION CATALOG PUBLISHED

This last article, referring to the Ford I sale by Stack's
(October 14, 2003) notes that "Many of Ford's key coins came
from the estate of F.C.C. Boyd, and the catalog includes a
3-page essay on Boyd."

Perhaps one of the Bust Half collectors among our readership
can tell us more about Boyd's counterstamped halves.
