Christopher McDowell adds:
We are well underway with the next issue of JEAN. I hope to tackle at least one Red Book colonial coinage series an issue and present to our readers the definitive article on the coinage. Issue #2 of JEAN will take on all the mysteries of the Rhode Island ship medal and challenge conventional wisdom that it is an English propaganda piece. In addition, we will be presenting some very new and exciting information on counterfeit coining in New York City during the 1780s.
Gary Trudgen, one of our old friends and a past editor of CNL, has been very hard at work digging deep into the Atlee Brewery story. The old New York City brewery, which eventually become nothing more than a front for illegal counterfeiting, was the early gathering place of die-sinkers and coin-makers who went on to strike several colonial coinages with some even finding work at the U.S. Mint after it opened. I hope to have Issue #2 in our subscribers’ hands right before Christmas so it can be enjoyed over the New Year.
The new publication has been long-awaited, and "turns it up a notch" for the level and quality of research, writing, and editing. This wasn't a name change for the sake of a name change - it was a substantive makeover taking an already great publication and making it even better. At 236 pages the debut issue is more like a full book, and well worth the subscription cost.
