ON THE QUESTIONABLE TERRITORIAL GOLD ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE RED BOOK

Tom DeLorey writes:

Regarding John J. Ford and his "alleged" counterfeits, back around late 1974 or so I saw a letter that Ford had written to Courtney L. Coffing, then the Editor of The Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine, concerning several purported territorial gold items that had been listed in the Redbook in the early 1960's, but were subsequently removed.

Ford wrote, with what I assume was the verbal equivalent of a straight face, that the items had been removed from the Redbook "for lack of space." Subsequent Redbook Editor Ken Bressett informs me that this was not the case.
