AJN PLATE QUESTION
John Merz writes: "I'm back from the ANA convention in
New York, where I saw the Numismatic Literature competitive
exhibit. Two Levick photo plates of 1793 cents were part of the
exhibit. These photo plates are contained in the whole number
36 issue of the American Journal of Numismatics. I also have
two copies of whole number 36.
The first photo plate in the ANA exhibit has ?JNT Levick
1868? in a box in the lower right corner of the photo. My first
photo plate is the same. The second photo plate in the ANA
exhibit has (if my scribbled notes are correct) ?Compiled by JT
Levick? in the lower right corner, along with an embossed logo
in the lower middle of the photo for ?Rockwood? printing.
My second photo has no embossed logo for Rockwood printing,
and in the lower right corner has ?Compiled by Joseph N T
Levick?. (Note that the name ?Joseph? is spelled out).
Are my scribbled notes correct? Are there at least three
variations of the Levick photo plate? Does anyone care?"
