1802 HALF DIME ARTICLES FOUND
In a note to David J. Davis, Joel Orosz forwarded references
to two items regarding U.S. 1802 Half Dimes:
"The first is "Another 1802 Half Dime Unearthed", about a
specimen discovered in Missouri that Ebenezer Locke Mason
had purchased, in Mason's Coin Collectors' Herald, for
September of 1879.
The second is "The 1802 Half Dime" , which follows up on the
story, and reveals the source to be E.F. Gambs, a St. Louis
Stamp and Coin Dealer. This is in Mason's Coin Collectors'
Herald, for December of 1879. This issue also carries an ad
for Gambs' business."
