"I need to correspond with someone who has a good run of Chas. Steigerwalt Fixed Price Lists. In doing my research on the 1802 half dime, I noted that Steigwalt had what seemed to be two different 1802s for sale.
In FPL No. 10, May 1887, he listed "A very fine example" for sale at $150. In FPLs numbers 15, 16 & 18, he listed one as, "Good. Extremely rare. 100.00." In my latest purchase, a copy of, FPL No. 28, January 1892, he listed, "A good specimen of this extremely rare date. 100.00." (Is this the prior coin with a new description?). What I want to determine is:
The first and last appearance of each coin, using the same description, and whether or not there are other listings that I haven't seen."
