Bruce W. Smith submitted this request for assistance regarding CoinAge Magazine. Can anyone help? Thanks.
Though not taken very seriously by the numismatic fraternity, there is an index of this primarily commercial magazine. "Index to COINage Magazine Volume 1 - 16 (1965-1980)" compiled by Paul Anderson in Laguna Hills, CA and published in 1981. The listings are arranged by category and then by year. No author or page numbers are given.
At the end is a long Miscellaneous section. This is followed by a note: "Since I don't own a set of Coinage Magazines, any help you can give me in getting the items in the Miscellaneous section put into the proper categories would be greatly appreciated."
There are several items in my area of study -- China -- but I too never subscribed to this magazine. I would appreciate it if anyone can provide information on a few articles for my own bibliography. I need the exact title, author, page numbers, and a brief description of the contents. A scan or Xerox of the article would be great.
1) Chinese Gold December 1965 (or maybe 1966)
2) Chinese Gold June 1971
3) The China Collection October 1979
4) A Numismatist in China June 1978
5) A Numismatist in Viet Nam August 1972
Over the years some important articles have appeared in Coinage. The magazine has also published some spectacular photos by Larry Stevens. Two
of the important articles on China published here include:
A) "A Yank in the China Mint" December 1971. No author is given, but the subject is the collection of Clifford Hewitt (former US mint technician, who later helped set up the Manila Mint and the Shanghai Mint). This collection was then owned and displayed by Edward P. Janzen. This collection later went to the ANS in New York.
B) "Mint in Exile" by Oscar Dodson (August 1966) about the Taiwan Mint
