In a CoinWeek video published July 2, 2018, early American Coppers (EAC) members remember half cent collector R. Tettenhorst.
Collector R. Tettenhorst—real name Bernard Alan Edison—built an amazing collection of half cents and was a revered member of the copper collecting community.
Edison was born in St. Louis, Missouri on March 23, 1928. He was a scion of the Edison family, who founded the famous Edison Brothers shoe store chain.
At the 2018 EAC Convention, several members of Early American Coppers (EAC) gathered to discuss some of their fondest memories of "Tett" and the impact he made on their lives. In the video above, CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan speaks to the EAC's Bill Eckberg, Denis Loring, Harry Salyards, Bob Kebler, and Mike Packard.
