David L. Ganz submitted the following in response to Bruce W. Smith's request for assistance regarding COINage Magazine. Thanks!
I have my own index, which I kept from the mid-70s to the mid-90s. Some of it was done by Barbara Parrotto, who was ny personal secretary (and a former editorial assistant in the NLG newsletter) who worked in my home office a few days a week when my children were young.
COINage was my friend Jim MilIer's publication almost from the time that he brought it out with Gordon Behn in 1964. My set is bound though about 1994, and in pocket-holders afterwards.
COINage had the best stable of writers in the field and, in Ed Reiter, one of the best editors. (I wrote for them for more than 30 years, from 1971 until just after Jim MIller's death in 2003. Excluding my own contributions (and those articles numbered in the hundreds over the years and included substantive articles as well as "scoops" over the weekly competition in Coin World and Numismatic News. I think you will find that the American Numismatic Society in its "Numismatic Literature" indexed many more articles in COINage than any other domestic periodical.
My index lists the following:
People Numismatist in China (COINage V14 1978) Jun
World Masterpieces of China (COINage V15 1979) Aug
World The China Connection (COINage V15 1979) Oct
People Inside the China mint (COINage V20 1984) Apr
A Collector in China (Ganz) (COINage V31 1995) p44 May
Personalities Yank in the China Mint (COINage V7 1971) Dec
I will be happy to go into my library and fact-check for Bruce. I am missing only an issue or two in year 1 or 2 to be fully complete.
