MORE ON LEYDEN PAPER SIEGE COINS

In our February 28th issue Joe Boling wondered:

Did John Sandrock really mean it when he said "There are eight known specimens..." of Leyden card siege money? Is it that rare? Or did he mean eight known types?

Charles Opitz writes:

I do not think there are only eight known as I have two in my own collection. I have attached a picture of the two along with a silver coin from the same die. This shows coin dies were used to make the paper coins. Excuse the center coin being turned slightly.
