I am shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Richard Doty's passing. My condolences to his family!
Although we never met, he was a great help to me in my research of the Bashlow Confederate cent restrikes. I needed photos of the dies Bashlow donated to the Smithsonian Institution. I explained my need and why and he responded almost immediately. He said that he would have to locate the dies and that it may take some time.
Expecting weeks if not months, a couple of days later he sent an e-mail stating that he had found the dies and would take photos of all. Expecting days if not weeks, within hours he started sending the images, all twelve of them.
When I tried to thanked him he would just respond; Cheers D.

Dick Doty was good friend of The London Numismatic Club. He spoke to our club on several occasions when visiting England, and we were delighted to host such a prestigious lecturer. His genial personality will be much missed.

I used to talk to him a couple times a week. I wish now I had saved some of the very funny E-mails he used to send, we did that almost daily, cannot get over not having him around. He made me smile, and I always learned something. We had really become close friends, for me one of a couple, and I think for him, one of many.
