LESTER MERKIN CASTORLAND HOARD

The title of the John W. Adams article in the next Asylum
"The Story Behind the Castorland Jeton" reminded Alan V.
Weinberg of the story of an old hoard.  He writes:
"Approximately 35 years ago Lester Merkin told me, at the
time confidentially, that the original French Family of
the Castorland medal  issue still had many hundreds of the
original in silver and was leaking onto the market several
pieces each year. Lester was handling them. So there may
be a hoard of hundreds of Castorland original silver strikings
out there in Europe."
