The latest issue of The Chopmark News has been published by editor Colin Gullberg. It's the official publication of the Chopmark Collectors Club. Here are his From the Editor comments followed by the issue's table of contents.
In this issue we meet our youngest member, Hong Chan Ui, from South Korea. Hong joined the CCC when he was in high school and is currently a college student showing there are young, enthusiastic collectors joining the hobby.
Eric Brothers is writing a series of articles for a variety of journals and magazines and we are reprinting his first one from the ANS magazine in this issue. There will be plenty more to come from Eric.
Howard Daniel sent me an old Hong Kong dealer's fixed price list.
It's a fascinating glimpse into the past.
I visited New York City last summer and had the good fortune to meet with and interview Mr. David Hill, the head librarian of the ANS. We also get to see some of the chopmarked coins held in the ANS's collection.
I'm also very excited to announce the publication of Taylor Leverage's new book on chopmarked coins, By Weight, Not by Coyne: An Introduction to Chopmarked Coins Please see the last page for more details.
In 2023, we will have the usual two issues of 100 pages of content. Just for an update, The Chopmark News has been publishing since 1992—30 years now! And we're closing in on 2,000 printed pages of content on a very niche area of numismatics. I would like to thank everyone for their support and contributions over this period.
I would also like to alert members that I am always in need of content, no matter how small. A photo of one of your coins, a report from a show, or a self-introduction are valuable pieces of information to understanding this special area of coin collecting we all love.
