ON THE CASE OF THE 1913 NICKEL CASES

Michael Schmidt writes: "If there was a second case for the 1913
Liberty nickels it must have come before the coins were purchased
by Col. Green.  Eric Newman does own the case that came with the
nickels from the Green estate and it has slots for eight nickels
not six.  It held the five nickels, two pattern buffaloes (one in
copper and one with out the designer's initial.)  The eighth coin
was also a buffalo but I don't remember if it was a pattern or a
regular issue.

Eric was involved with the break up of the Green collection and
he acquired the set directly from the estate so that was the holder
that Green had.  So the only other possibility for a second holder
would have to be if Samuel Brown had one made.   I have never heard
of Brown displaying the set in a case."
