       What a super day!!! Totally unexpectedly I received these three tokens in the mail. My life long numismatic dealer friend Don Bailey attended FUN2003 and captured these fantastic tokens for me. It is thoughtful occurrences like this that make my life a continuing voyage of pleasure and discovery. I couldn't be more tickled if I had swallowed a feather duster. EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

  • Double 'd' Is Not A Cattle Brand
       There is a superb research article entitled Double "d" - My Favorite New Jersey Copper, by Buell Ish, in LinkTHE Colonial Coin Collectors Club's The C4 Newsletter, Vol6 No3 Fall 1998. In that interesting article Buell investigates, with the help of TheGuys, how his original double "d" reverse New Jersey cent could have been created. The article is much too long to attempt to quote verbatim but I recommend you track down a copy of this excellent newsletter and read the article for yourself.
       I have captured here for you three of the illustrations used in the article. Above left is Buel's d/d double reverse coin, above right is Gallery Mint's g/g double reverse copy coin and below is Gallery Mint's 51g copy coin showing backwards and incused reverse. This should give you a taste of Buell's scholarship and make you hungry to experience the full meal as it were. Buell has many observations to share with us about these interesting specimens. Don't miss this article... it is worth the effort to track down!

StrawHat Carving
Someday You Will Be A Real Boy
   Steve Adams should charge extra for the fantastic experience a purchase from him always turns out to be... at very least one should expect to pay an entertainment tax. Steve created the StrawHat carving shown here on the right and then he sent me the PinocciHobo scan shown here on the left. He was just playing with his graphics software but I would have been well pleased to have the Pinocchio version as a carving. Of course... the StrawHat carving is also COOL!
   Steve knows that I much prefer nickel carvings with the LIBERTY legend left intact. I got this EMail message from The Grand Master himself: LIBERTY will come with StrawHat. I saved it for you. You might be amused to have a LIBERTY all to itself. It looks a little condensed after being engraved off, but it is legible. Steven G. Adams...Friday, January 17, 2003 6:15PM As I said... buying a nickel carving from Steve truly is a fantastic experience!
   The full quote from the 1940 movie Pinocchio is: Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish and someday you will be a real boy. Link:Verne R. Walrafen

The King's Coin Hammer (In background.)
  • Is The King's Coin Hammer Still Operational?
       The drop hammer shown with the Green Man painted on it is not my drop hammer. The one I built is much more complicated with large wooden gears and a turnstile type wind up mechanism and a large lever to release the weight. You can see part of it in the background of the same photograph. It is stained a dark brown. We are building another one based on the same design that will be set up in the lobby of the new mint, but it will be much cooler than the one I built for Texas Ren Fest. Ron Landis...Sunday, January 05, 2003 1:09PM
       Sure glad Ron Landis jumped in and straightened me out as I was prepared to believe that the Quick Silver Mint and the King's Coin Hammer were one and the same piece of equipment (the one with the Green Man painted on it.) WHEW... narrow escape!
       I hadn't lightened the photograph up enough to see what was in the background. I think my monitor shows scans much darker than is generally the case with most people's equipment. If I am making the scans much too light please let me know... I don't want to blind all y'all.

    Quick Silver Mint (Set up in front of the King's Coin Hammer.)

    Tudor Rose

       If you check out Link:Elena's Quick Silver Mint you will find they strike Mythical Coins and Medallions created by artists and engravers Michael Stewart and Rick Heinen. These are struck in bronze, silver and gold for those folks who are "into" Renaissance Festivals and/or Faires. Their creations fall into the following broad categories; Family Tree, Mythical Beings, Animal Spirits, Ancient Symbols, Celtic Symbols, Native American Symbols, Medieval Zodiac Signs and Runic Talismans.
       Shown here on the left is an example of a Quick Silver medal, their Tudor Rose - Heraldic emblem of Queen Elizabeth symbolizing the virgin with a pure heart... the flower of eternal life.
       The painting on the Quick Silver drop hammer is clearly a depiction of the Green Man whose image is to be found carved in churches and cathedrals all over Britain and Europe. The Green Man is the popular, leafy-faced image of the wild God of Nature. He's not one God, but an archetype of the pagan God of the Wild. Pan, Stag King, Robin Hood, and even the Swamp Thing are all incarnations of the Green Man.
       The photo displayed at Link:www.trogg.net/TexRenFest99/Mint.jpg (shown above on the left) is a Quick Silver Mint and was in place at the Texas Renn Faire in the early 1990's. Quick Silver assumed the responsibilities of Ron Landis after he relocated and we maintain a presence there today. Elena V. Cooper...Saturday, January 04, 2003 7:52PM

Traditional Subject - Nontraditional Carver
   Here is my very first nickel carving of the new year. I couldn't be more pleased! I asked Steve Adams for a more traditional subject carving. Although I love many of the more inventive and imaginative carvings being done by our currently active nickel carvers... I definitely find carvings done in a traditional style both desirable and appealing. Add that to the fact that this is a Steve Adams creation and I am happier than an opossum in a persimmon tree. I can only hope that Steve takes my "nontraditional carver" comment as the compliment I sincerely mean it to be. Simply... I hold the opinion that Steve's work is hands-down better than ANY of the earlier/traditional carvers. EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

2002 "New England" Punch
Inspired by the 1652 NE punches used to produce Threepence, Sixpence and Shillings in Massachusetts.
  • The 350th Anniversary Of The Boston Mint
       I had wanted to do something for 2002 to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Boston Mint. Lou Jordan wrote an awesome book this past year about the Mint and John Hull. There's lots of new information in it. I wanted to do something myself though so I called the Gallery Mint and ordered a "NE" punch. My initial thoughts were that I'd counterstamp a couple thousand 2000 Massachusetts quarters and distribute them around Boston and possibly attract media attention so that the general public would become aware of the anniversary. A great thought but work and distance prevented it.

    GMM Trial Piece - with Ron Landis' personal "RL" hallmark.
       Along with the punch, I also received a New Hampshire quarter with five impressions of the 2002 NE punch. This is what the Gallery Mint had done to test the punch.
    To see a differently lighted enlargement click this Link:GMM Trial Piece if you are viewing this using a GMM ScrapBook CD-ROM.
       Speaking with them on the phone, they had said that the design end of the punch was hardened and the opposite end was not. This was for safety reasons - the unhardened end would be less brittle and less likely to chip when I struck it. On the side of the punch is a star. I guessed this was for punch orientation - I would place my thumb over the star and the punch would be lined up in the correct direction.
    It sure would have been special if Ron Landis had used one of his personal hallmark punches instead of a star punch for this purpose. That way the 2002 NE punch would have been "signed" as it were.

    Link:State Quarters by State
       At the 2002 ANA convention in New York City, LinkTHE Colonial Coin Collectors Club (C4) held a general membership meeting. At the end of that meeting, I brought out a small anvil, a 2 pound sledge hammer, my punch and two rolls of 2001 New York quarters. I struck all 80 quarters with the 2002 NE punch and they were distributed to all present. I guess I looked a little funny on my knees on the floor - swinging the hammer but it was a hit and everyone enjoyed receiving one.
       At the C4 Convention in Boston this past November (2002), I was again on the floor - hammer in hand - right before the auction and in the auction room. At that event I struck 80 fresh 2000 Massachusetts quarters and brought 30 prestruck 2000 Massachusetts quarters with me. So that brought the total of 2000 Massachusetts quarters counterstamped to 120 (including a few I gave out previously.) Again, the counterstruck coins were a hit. I wandered up and down the isles of bidders passing out the quarters.

       Ray sent me a 2002 NE c/s 2000 Massachusetts quarter which I showed to all y'all on SBpage48 in a SBsubject entitled LinkTHE Colonial Coin Collectors Club, which makes this link look identical to C4's homepage link provided previously in this SBsubject... sorry about that. Lack of prior planning I reckon.
       I struck nine (9) special coins for a few people; a GA 25¢, a VT 25¢, a TN 25¢, a OH 25¢, two GSNA Medals and two Connecticut Coppers. To keep anonymity, I recorded just the initials of the recipients next to these nine special coins.

    One with an Obv.c/s and the other with a Rev.c/s
    ( These are two of only 200 GSNA Medals issued in 1997. )
       I still don't know what I'm going to do with the die but no more coins will be counterstamped with it. I may keep it or donate it to the Gallery Mint Museum or the ANS. There's no rush to make a decision about that yet. It looks as though my out of pocket expenses for this endeavor was $51 in quarters, a personal amount for the Large Cent and Connecticut Coppers, and $150 for the punch. Ray Williams...Saturday, January 04, 2003 4:10PM

       The 2002 "NE" punch measures 5mm x 5mm when stamped on a coin. It can't be confused with the original punch. There have been rumors of NE counterstamps on contemporary Spanish Silver coins, but I don't know if this is true. I stamped no Spanish coins. Ray Williams...Saturday, January 04, 2003 4:27PM
       It is a joy to "work with" Ray on a project... he does all the work and my contribution is simply to cut-n-paste his superb material into a SBsubject. THANKS RAY! EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

  • Landis Sample Featured In Coin World
       Here we have the original NJNS 700th Meeting Mule... the infamous "Lot#7" from the Spring 1996 NJNS Auction. As I postulated in Link:Nagy, Maris, NJNS Lot#7 And The Real GMM Deerhead you will note that just the very tips of the dentils show around the outside edge of the obverse on this "Lot#7" specimen. If you look at the excerpt from SBpage32... posted at the bottom of this SB subject ...you can see the mockup I made with just the very tips of the dentils showing. I can't remember the last time I was actually correct in one of my postulations... sure feels good!
       ( Note: The enlarged scans show what would appear to be straight planchet clips which are NOT a feature of the specimen itself but a result of the scans failing to covering the entire coin. I filled in the edges a couple places on the smaller scan displayed above. )

    "Wrong Sized" 28.5mm 1787 New Jersey Cent
       If we were to add in my "Wrong Sized" 1787 New Jersey cent it would make a "hat trick" to die for... no pun intended.
       I want to thank Harry Rescigno, Dennis Wierzba and Ray Williams for their participation in this research project. Without fine gentlemen like these guys I would have been left twisting slowly in the wind. THANKS FOR SHARING GUYS! EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

    "Wrong Sized" 1787           The Real GMM Dearhead           NJNS Lot#7 Mockup
       Shown above... left and center ...are the two dies that I felt were candidates for having been used to strike the NJNS Lot#7 "Deerhead" specimen. Ron tells me that his Deerhead die is the center image above ...BUT... did the folks at NJNS take the "Deerhead" nomenclature from a flip insert that Ron or Adam wrote on ...OR... did they call their Lot#7 "Deerhead", independent of what the GMM Guys would have called it, simply because it was a 1787 die while all the other strikes used a 1786 obverse die?
       My initial assumption was that the "Wrong Sized" 1787 die was the die used for the NJNS Lot#7 Deerhead specimen because it was the same diameter as the NJNS 700th Meeting reverse die. Take note of the right image above that I created as a mockup to show how much smaller the NJNS 700th Meeting reverse die (and the "Wrong Sized" 1787 obverse die) are than The Real GMM Deerhead obverse die. Just the very tips of the dentils would have been evident around the circumference of the struck specimen if The Real GMM Deerhead die was truly used.

   eBay item 3301874990 (Ends Dec-29-02 20:03:24PST) - HOBO NICKEL LEE's BO's "PAT & MIKE". Meet "PAT & MIKE" (L-93) a pair of local yearling racoon, who I am sure are fast asleep under a brush pile (or some kind of protection) not far from here, but if they were out and about, they probably would, with dogs barking and cans rattling, be checking the garbage behind the local cafe. I have watched when one couldn't open a garbage can, he would leave, and within minutes two would appear and get the job done. If the dogs showed up they would head for the trees or that high wooden fence and let the dogs bark untill someone called or collected them. Even without a stretch of warm weather to bring them out, we are still able to take a good look at them on their 1937 host coin. That's PAT in front. Well behaved, most of the time. These hand carved young ones would like to relocate further south so they could spend more time with the dogs, rather than sleeping their life away. Clifford Kraft...Tuesday, Dec-24-02 20:03:24PST
   I REALLY wanted to add these two wonderful racoon trouble makers (above on the left) to my midden heap but I just didn't bid high enough. Cliff just gets better and better creating his critter carvings. Speaking of "critter carvings" I encountered a really neat toad (above on the right) posted on LinkHobo Nickels For Sale and it was immediately obvious that the carver could me none other than Mike Pezak.

This is "Felix" (L-62) the fastest thing on four legs, who came to our area looking for a career in "Cat Racing". We do have "Horse Racing", and did manage to get "Felix" entered in a dog race as a (Uganden Longtailed Schnauzer). She just cleaned up, 70 mph and corners like a Ferarri, but she did not like being painted up and really hated having to wear that plastic nose. She has been making ends meet by doing pest control jobs, any kind. Her specialty being after dark work, which she unconditionally guarantees. If you have a howling cat or a barking dog problem, give Felix one night out in your area and you'll find out how quiet it can be after dark. The only thing she likes better than cold Lutefisk is warm Rottweiler, and keeps all her modifications and alterations on a 1937 XF buffalo. Here is your chance to get in on the ground floor of "Cat Racing". Clifford Kraft...Sunday, Aug-25-02 15:07:39PDT
   I sent Cliff the cheetah scan (above on the left) and asked him if he recognized it. He replied: That's our local dog catcher! Corresponding with Cliff is one of the major accruements, enjoyments even, in my life.

   eBay item 3300474168 (Ends Dec-22-02 17:37:13PST) - HOBO NICKEL LEE's BO's "ALICE". Say hello to "Alice" "his mother wanted a girl". (L-83) Those of us that know him, both out of courtesy and respect call him "AL". "AL" is an African elephant, "old wavy ears" not one of those Asian "wimps". In fact both the chief and Black Diamond were remarking on the size of that "sucker", so big that he takes up both sides of his host coin. Lucky for us "AL" is quiet and well behaved, and said he has no fear of Mice, no matter how vicious or terrifing. He is all hand carved with the date, liberty, and E pluribus unum left in tact. "Only the characters have been changed". "AL" comes complete with trunk, tusks, and tail. I believe a smile is included but you best check to be sure. A broom and shovel are available, but optional. Our boy is a super coin. Clifford Kraft...Sunday, Dec-15-02 17:37:13PST
   As badly as I wanted the racoon trouble making brothers, I wanted Al even worse. AGAIN I failed to bid high enough... Al went to live with the same fine person who adopted Pat and Mike. Al's adoption fee was well over $200 and, as Cliff says, That's a lot of night crawlers!

Better Than Riding The Rails To Florida
   Bill (Jameson) Zach tells me that he is headed for FUN2003, January 9-12, in Orlando, Florida and that he is restoring the old tradition of selling nickel carvings to pay his way. He has the five nickels shown above in his tobacco pouch and will be headed out before too long... and his wife refuses to ride the rails to get there!
   I have been informed that if Bill doesn't have to drag his carvings all the way to Florida he would be happy to give any interested buyers a price break. Don't expect to steal them though as these are clearly real masterpieces. Just getting in line ahead of all the folks at FUN2003 ought to be enough of a break as it is. Here is your chance to snap up your favorite(s) from the selection shown above. How often do you get to pick the carving(s) you want from a group? You can EMail:Bill Zach or call him at: 270-376-5591. Bill says that he will send you more detailed scans if the enlargements I have posted behind the carving number links aren't adequate for your purposes... those enlargements will go away sometime in early January and will only be available on the CD-ROM after that.
