I came across this interesting little periodical while cleaning some files recently. It's the "Review of Numismatics and the Law". Pictured is the cover of volume 1, number 1, dated Summer-Fall, 1981. At some point the publication changed its name to "The Counsellor" (subtitled, "A Review of Numismatics and the Law"). I have four individual issues, the last of which is also pictured (v2n2, Summer, 1982).
Is anyone familiar with this periodical? If it's defunct, when was the last issue, and how many issues were produced? Is it scarce? The issues have some interesting content. It was published by newsletter author Les Fox, and "named names" of dealers accused of fraud and upbraids numismatic publications such as Coin World and Numismatic News for accepting ads from what it felt were questionable dealers.
