QUERY: BASHLOW CONFEDERATE COIN RESTRIKE SIX-COIN SETS

Peter Bertram submitted these images and a query about the rare six-coin sets of Bashlow confederate restrikes. -Editor

I’ve been following with interest the articles on the Bashlow Confederate Cent 2nd restrikes. I have a six coin set in a 74mm x 150mm Capital plastic holder – three of the Bashlow cents and three of the Confederate half dollar in bronze, silver, and goldine.

I’ve only seen three over the years and haven’t been able to find out anything about it. I did, however, correspond about it with Harold Levi (author of “THE LOVETT CENT; A CONFEDERATE STORY”). Mr. Levi also has a set and noted that he had only seen four of the sets over the years (one of which was an image of mine that I sent him).

He also noted that another source informed him he’d seen less than six. Assuming none of these “sightings” are duplicates (except Mr. Levi’s inclusion of my set), that’s a total of 12 sets. Has anyone else seen one of these?

Thanks for sharing the images with us. Can anyone tell us who has any of the other sets? -Editor
