Following the meeting plan discussion, long-time dealer Bill Jones gave a superb presentation entitled”The 225th Anniversary Coinage of 1792″,. the fabled1792 Half Disme. Sharing detailed, well-researched information on the beginnings of the US mint, the coiners and engravers, the source of the silver (not George and Martha’s sterling for the original 1500 pieces), the processes and the results. I have a solid page of notes and a few words don’t begin to do the program justice. An example of the legend are shown below.
An active auction followed the presentation.
