In my continuing job as volunteer archival assistant at the American Numismatic Society, I am working on a scrapbook compiled in the
late 1930s, containing clips of a running numismatic column entitled "With the Coin Collector." This column appeared weekly in
the New York Herald Tribune Sunday edition from about 1937 to 1941, based on the range of clips in the scrapbook.
The majority of the articles deal with foreign and ancient coins, but, as the sample shown here, there are also articles about
American coinage. Thus far I have been unsuccessful in determining any information about this long running column, such as who wrote it;
how long did it actually run; did it appear in any other newspaper; etc. Any help from readers would be most welcome.
