Periodically I Google myself, to see what lies are being spread about me, or to see which of my own lies are circulating with effect.
I stumbled on an April 2008 E-Sylum reference to the Yoachum Dollar. As I bought the piece in the Hartzog auction, and subsequently sold it in my November 2000 auction, I am mentioned. It would have been better to quote my auction description.
I don’t have a 1984 Red Book at hand, to verify the quote –sheer hogwash-- supposedly pulled from it, in support of the existence of a Yoachum Dollar before the 1980s. It is not in later Red Books. As for the account of the restriking of the Yoachum Dollar, in an edge-marked edition of 142, I doubt this ever happened.
I was just quoting a piece that had turned up elsewhere on the web, although in looking at the two E-Sylum pieces I could find on the coin in April 2008 I don't see the Red Book mentioned. Thanks for the background information. -Editor
