The Incredible Collections of Reed Hawn, Part 3

The Incredible Collections of Reed Hawn, Part 3

By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

The extent of varieties and completeness of the Reed Hawn Collection show that man’s dedication. Reed Hawn dedicated himself to specialization, as with his half dollar collection, 1794 to 1947 as described in the previous part of this article. But, he was also interested in other series that were easier to complete. During the 1960s and 1970s there were many great coins available either through dealers’ inventories or major auction sales.
