The E-Sylum: Volume 4, Number 8, February 18, 2001, Article 13

"Thank you for the very entertaining and informational E-Sylum newsletter! I look forward to reading it, and keeping copies for the information and addresses, etc. (The 'Dumb and Dumber' entry was hilarious!, although very sad, in a way).

I am continuing research on the 8 Reales "SUD" issues of General Morelos and his Captains. At this point, I have many references, including the very informative hardbound 'The Julius Guttag Collection of Latin American Coins', arranged by Edgar Adams, a Quarterman publication, copyright 1929, reprinted in 1974. There are many photos, and descriptions of coins without photos, and I think, one of the first attempts to catalog the 8 Reales copper SUD coins by die variety, and approximate the date of manufacture. It is an excellent reference book. I would, however, like to ask the members if they might have any sale catalogues that they might wish to sell, or recommend, especially those that have pictures and descriptions of the 8 Reales SUD pieces, in copper, and especially those coins struck or cast in silver. Anything recommended or offered for sale would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks, "

[Editor's note: Mr. Dunfield may be reached at this email address: While it doesn't have any new illustrations of coins, my article in the Spring 1996 issue of The Asylum (Vol. XIV, Nos. 2-4, pp19-23) discusses the pamphlet "Sketch of the Coinage of the Mexican Revolutionary General Morelos Based upon an Important Find", by Lyman Low (1886) ]
