QUICK QUIZ: MYSTERY NUMISMATIST IN 1885

Jerry Fochtman writes:

Mystery Numismatist Young Man - 1885 I've attached a picture of a young man who later in life wrote a couple of milestone books on numismatics. This photo shows him as a member of a local softball team that was called the Pioneers and I doubt few have seen this.

Next week I'll send a picture of this person later in life, which will probably surprise a lot of folks..... but chances are he still won't be well recognized, although his name is well known.







Interesting challenge. I have a guess, but I'll keep it to myself. Any takers on this one? No fair if you attended a recent presentation by Benny Bolin... -Editor
