THE FIVE SISTERS BORN 1854 BY DAVID H. COHEN

W. David Perkins of Centennial, CO has the following question for E-Sylum readers. Can anyone help? Thanks. -Editor

In 1984, David H. Cohen authored an article in the Liberty Seated Collectors Club (LSCC) Journal titled, “The Five Sisters Born 1854.” Cohen told a great story about a gentleman walking into his friend’s coin store with an album of silver dollars, mostly circulated U.S. Morgan Dollars. At the end of this run of Morgan Dollars there was one page with five 1854 U.S. Liberty Seated Dollars (!). For those of you who don’t know, 1854 Dollars are very rare in all grades, especially as these were “AU to MS-63” grade coins, per David.

Cohen also authored one article in The Asylum (Volume VIII, No. 1, Spring 1990). The article was titled, “Dunham’s easy finding list (pages 17-20).

I am researching the rarity of 1854 Dollars and am looking to get in contact with this David H. Cohen, if possible. If anyone is in contact with David I’d appreciate them forwarding my e-mail contact information to him. I’m also interested in corresponding with anyone who knew him. I can be reached at wdperki@attglobal.net. Thanks.
