Recently a publication entitled The U.S. Coin Collector came across our desk. This run numbers eight issues between 1990 and 1991,
although one issue (no. 2) is missing here. Can an E-Sylum reader connect us with Bill Atkinson, the editor of this publication? This
organization was aimed specifically at collectors of U.S. coins, as opposed to the “literally unlimited” variety of other areas of numismatics.
Writers include Brad Karoleff, Bill Fivaz, Donn Pearlman, Joel Orosz, and others. The last issue in our run (November 1991, issue #8) ominously notes
a net loss of members, but there is otherwise no notice of cancellation.
I was a member of the club, the National Coin Collectors Association (NCCA), joining mainly to acquire a set of the newsletter, which I
thought could become rare someday. I lost track of when the publication folded. Can anyone help? -Editor
