Coincidentally, a reader wrote in this week looking for information on the topic of U.S. commemoratives. -Editor
I am contemplating a study of the Stone Mountain Half and at this point just accumulating information. The counterstamp issue is one of the more interesting aspects of the issue.
Via the Newman Numismatic Portal Robert Whitehead found a 2009 E-Sylum article where Jim Harris sought Arlie R. Slabaugh's research notes on U.S. Commemorative coins. I checked
subsequent issues, and don't believe we received a response. Is anyone familiar with this work or where it can be found today? -Editor
To read the earlier E-Sylum article, see:
QUERY: ARLIE SLABAUGH'S COMMEMORATIVE COINAGE RESEARCH NOTES SOUGHT (http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v12n13a09.html)
I did a long search on the Newman Portal with a lot of different terms and this eventually popped up.
Robert found a 1936 publication by the Rochester Museum of Arts and Sciences written by American Numismatic Association curator Charles W. Foster. -Editor
To read the complete booklet on the Newman Portal, see:
Historical Arrangement of United States Commemorative Coins (https://nnp.wustl.edu/library/book/520735)
Any pointers to additional information on the Stone Mountain Countermarks, including Arlie R. Slabaugh's research notes, would be appreciated. Thanks. -Editor
