MORE ON THE BROWN & DUNN COIN GRADING GUIDE ILLUSTRATIONS

Regarding the line drawings for grading coins in the Brown
and Dunn book, Ken Bressett writes: "These were created by
Arthur Mueller, a Racine, Wisconsin artist, at the request
of Whitman Publishing for use in the fourth edition of the
B&D book that was published in 1964. I worked with the
artist on this project, supplying him with pictures of
the coins and creating the "worn" versions by whiting out
portions that would go missing from circulation.

"It is likely that some books other than Brown and Dunn
used these drawings without permission from the publisher.
I am not familiar with the 1953 publication mentioned in
this question, but am certain that the drawings were not
created any earlier than 1963. Possibly they were inserted
in a later printing of a 1953 publication without changing
the copyright date (for obvious reasons)"
