HARRY BOOSEL'S CONTINUING 1873 STUDIES

"Bill Burd writes: "Harry's work on the 1873 coinage was published
in a series of articles in the Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine from
March 1957 through December 1958.  In 1960 he published a revised
limited edition of 500 copies in a booklet form titled "1873-1873".
I have number 500 with a special hardbound cover and autographed."

David Gladfeler writes: "Harry X Boosel's articles on the numismatics
of the year 1873 didn't stop with his 1960 book. My copy (signed and
numbered 468) has 4 supplements bound in at the back, the latest one
dated 1967. Five more loose ones came with it, some annotated by Harry
himself. They are:

   ? "The Spanish-American War -- 1873 -- Almost!"
  The Numismatist, September 1966.
   ? "Visit of the Shah of Persia to London -- June 1873,"
  Numismatic Scrapbook magazine May 1972.
   ? "The Centennial of the 1873 Halves," NSM April, 1973.
   ? "The Mystery of the 1873 $3 Gold Piece," The Numismatist,
  January 1981.
   ? "The Silver Coinage of 1873, and the So-Called Crime of 1873,"
  offprint of the Coinage of the Americas Conference, American
  Numismatic Society, 1987.

Few collectors are as focused as he was!"
