MORE ON THE ASSAY BAR CONTROVERSY
Having mentioned the brouhaha over Western Assay Bars appearing in the pages of COIN WORLD and elsewhere, I would be remiss in not noting the full-page advertisement by Stack's
in the July 12, 1999 issue (p69), "An Open Challenge to Professor Theodore V. Buttrey," asking "Are the western assay bars real or fake? It would be helpful to the numismatic
community if a debate were held at the August 1999 American Numismatic Association convention in Chicago, at which time each side may present their views."
