NOTES FROM IRELAND
Darryl Atchison writes:
"The Breen debate goes on it seems. I have personally convinced at least a dozen collectors on this side of the Atlantic to purchase copies for their own libraries because it does represent an important and as yet unsurpassed benchmark in American numismatics, especially for the colonial coins listed. It may not be a flawless text but, who cares? Anyone doing research would certainly use more than one source anyhow, wouldn't they?
Thanks to the members who responded to my plea on reading old books and catalogues. I have taken their suggestions to heart and hope to enjoy my 1870's text soon. Finally, if anyone has a duplicate copy of the 1962 ANA/CNA convention catalogue from Detroit, I would really like to get my hands on one."
