FALL 2006 ANA JOURNAL PUBLISHED

According to the American Numismatic Association press release:
"Research published for the first time in the Fall 2006 ANA Journal
concludes that common, proof reverse dies were used for all
denominations of proof coinage in the mid-1800s.

The landmark study, "An Era of Change: Proof-Only Reverse Dies of
the 1840s Used for All Denominations," by noted numismatist John
W. Dannreuther, is the result of more than 20 years of research
after Dannreuther first formulated his hypothesis.

"As early as the 1970s, I was almost certain that the Mint changed
its practice in 1840 and began to holdover proof-only reverse dies
for all denominations," said Dannreuther.  "Proving it, of course,
was a different story.  The rarity of nearly all the proof coins of
the 1840s made this a daunting task. Piece by piece, the puzzle begin
to fit together. As the sales of several great collections appeared
during the ensuing years, more denominations were confirmed."

The fall issue of ANA Journal also features papers delivered at the
Maynard Sundman/Littleton Coin Company Lecture Series in Denver on
Aug. 17.  Joaquín Montero, Ph.D. discusses "The Coinage of Alexander
the Great and His Image on Currency"; James Benjamin, Ph.D. and
Barbaranne Benjamin, Ph.D. address "Visual Rhetoric in the U.S.
Bicentennial Quarter"; and Roger W. Burdette considers "American
Advocates: Changing the Course of National Coinage Design."
