The E-Sylum: Volume 12, Number 6, February 8, 2009, Article 17

MORE ON EARLY U.S. COINS ENCAPSUATED IN GLASSWARE

Clifford Mishler writes:
I was drawn to this item in the current edition of the E-Sylum, because I have been passively interested in acquiring such a piece for many years. Sometime ago, perhaps 15 years ago, my wife and I were off enjoying our motorhome on a jaunt across southern New York state.

When we passed through the city of Corning, as my wife has a liking for glass as a collectible, we decided to stop and explore the Corning Glass Museum. Therein I noted a goblet with an early 19th century U.S. coin encapsulated in its stem. While a subsequent contact with the folks at the museum provided me with some background material on such pieces, I have never been able to come up with an example myself, although my pursuit has been somewhat passive.

I forwarded the information about the piece in the Corning Glass Museum to Stephen Crain via Bill Bugert, Editor of the e-Gobrecht newsletter. -Editor
