November Numismatist

Coins | Haney

I know not my usual October blog, but thought I would share the quarter that inspired the article I wrote that appears in the November Numismatist. I know not the beauty that Caleb found to use in the graphics, but it is the one I bought at Reliable Coins. I guess too I need to update my bio as in addition to my interest in error coins of 1968 and 681 military payment certificates I have been working on completing a set of the classic commemorative coins. Which this piece and the Lafayette dollar are outliers in the set if you exclude the gold pieces. One of my favorite things about numismatics is the rabbit holes you can find while collecting. Sometimes they are just imagined like trying to guess how far a particular piece has traveled to arrive in your collection both in time and distance. This one though was a trip through history trying to discover if what I had read was fact and be reminded of somethings that I had once forgotten. There was a second one page article I developed for the TNA too during my trip down the Isabella rabbit hole. I have included a link below to the TNA site and you will find my article on page 17 of the December 2020 issue.

Enjoy
p.s. I want to credit Caleb the editor for the Numismatist first for providing another resource for my article and putting it together pulling additional graphics that I did not have.

I just bought an Isabella quarter this past weekend at a coin show. Love the coin. Have more than one. The mintage of only 24 thousand makes it a great coin. They should be harder to find?

You are right as I tend to see several of these at a show and of course recently saw a PL for auction which was quite nice. Of course it sold for a hefty price, though considering the condition rarity it was probably a steal assuming you have the money to spend.

Always great history to learn behind the coins.

I agree and to me that is an important part of collecting being a tangible link to an event and place in time.
