Dave Perkins forwarded the following announcement from the JR News, the email newsletter of the John Reich Collector's Society. A JRCS program at the upcoming ANA convention may be of interest to researchers and bibliophiles. -EditorThe John Reich Collector's Society (JRCS) annual meeting will take place at the Baltimore ANA on Wednesday Morning, July 30th from 8:00am until 9:30am. Note the ANA Bourse does not open until 10:00am, allowing time for members and guests to talk and share what they have brought to the meeting.
Members are invited and guests are welcome. Dave Perkins and Rory Rea will be presenting this year's club program. You won't want to miss it! Dave and Rory will be talking about the Eric P. Newman (EPN) collection of early dollars and quarter dollars, with slides of the visit and the coins from this collection. All of the coins are ex. Col. E.H.R. Green, and have been stored in Waite Raymond holders since the 1940s when Eric acquired them from the Green estate. Needless to say there are a large number of beautifully toned coins.
A number of the silver dollars are plate coins in the Bowers silver dollar book, and via a little detective work (and plate matching) many of the quarter dollars are plate coins in the original Browning book! You will also get a glimpse of the extensive EPN Library and Museum. And maybe a few very interesting letters and "old envelopes" to boot!
