My father was Richard D. Kenney who passed away in 1956. I happened upon your web site by accident, and saw reference to my father. I would greatly appreciate any information your readers could provide me on my father's career or writings. Thank you in advance. My father originally worked at Macy's, New York and moved to Louisville KY to work for James and Co. He appeared at least once on television discussing numismatic topics.
Alan Kenney may be reached at email@example.com. Does anyone have any information or stories they can share?
The Numismatic Indexes Project (NIP) lists 45 entries for Richard Kenney.
Many of the entries are for articles in the Coin Collector's Journal volumes 15-21 (1948-1954) on "Early American Medalists and Die-Sinkers (Prior to the Civil War)" and "Struck Copies of Early American Coins", and a series of articles on "Unofficial Coins Of The World" in The Numismatist 1962-1964. His obituary appeared in the March, 1957 issue of Numismatic Scrapbook. Here is an image of the cover of a CCJ offprint of "Struck Copies of Early American Coins", a classic monograph on an important aspect of U.S. numismatics.
