Dick Hanscom submitted this question. Can anyone help?
The item on powder metallurgy was interesting and brought to mind something I have been trying to find/recall.
I remember an article in Coin World or Numismatic News Weekly about a pressed disk made from placer gold. This would be in the years ownership of bullion was prohibited. Ownership of placer gold was legal, so this was a way to “fabricate” it into a more convenient form rather than gold dust.
I have looked through CW from 1970 to 1975 (the years that I believe it would have been), but have not had the opportunity to look through NNW.
Does anyone else remember this article? I have an odd memory, and can “see it” on the right hand page (when the paper is opened) at the top. Of course, this could just be wishful thinking. Thanks very much.
