We all know that Wayte Raymond CCJ issues from the 1950's are common right? The first 4 years are common in publishers cloth and the others are scarce but not rare and not particularly valuable, right?
Leon Majors is undertaking a survey of copies of the Coin Collector's Journal. E-Sylum readers and NBS members alike are encouraged to participate. If you have an examples of this great publication in your library, please take a moment to complete the short survey form and submit it to Leon at email@example.com
We all know that all the Scott's CCJs from the 1870ís and 1880's are equally scarce, Volumes 1-4 are fairly common, Volumes 5-12 are all equally scarce and the only rare one is Volume 13, right?
Help us figure this out. We are collecting population data on bound volumes and loose issues for both series of Coin Collectorís Journals, the Frossard-edited Scottís volumes from the 1870ís and 1880ís and the Wayte Raymond versions from the 1930ís-1950ís.
We plan to publish headlines in The E-Sylum and articles in the Asylum. Please help us as much as possible at least with bound volumes, also let us know if you know of hoards, have any data on print runs or anything else that might be interesting. We will not release any information on individuals or their collections, but hope to provide statistical analysis of scarcity or rarity of volumes and issues.
We are sending out data sheets in Excel format and use that if you can, but please send your data any way that's easy for you.

I'm fortunate to own a complete bound set, and I've already forwarded my survey to Leon. All of my bound CCJ's are from the Donald Miller library. Before Miller, the 1875-1887 Scott series (Volumes 1-13) came from the library of Nelson Thorson (an American Numismatic Association President).
I also have an extra copy of Volume 1 from the library of George W. Rode of Pittsburgh (early ANA officer). The 1934-1954 Wayte Raymond series is bound in blue cloth in nine separate volumes. -Editor
