Regarding last week's item on the picture gallery of U.S. numismatic greats from Collector's Universe,
Jim Duncan of New Zealand writes:
It was interesting to read the list of "greats" - but I was surprised to find Richard S Yeoman's name absent. Is he no longer a recognised great? His was the first coin book I ever bought back in the 60s.
Well, that's not any "official" list, just a compilation of images found in various Collector's Universe posts. There is a Numismatic Hall of Fame at the American Numismatic Association, and Richard Yeoman was inducted in 1978.
By the way, no one was able to identify the two mystery numismatists I pictured last week. So here’s a hint. The first one was NOT a U.S. citizen, and lived in a palace. The second one was a controversial academic.
