Happy New Year Part II to speak. My last message had to do with the world at large and present situations, plus a mention that I will be at the Florida United Numismatists convention in Orlando all day on Thursday and Friday, January 10 and 11. Whether you are a newcomer to the world’s greatest hobby (as I like to call it) or whether we’ve known each other for years, stop by to say hello. I will be glad to autograph any books you bring with me or buy at the Whitman booth at the show.

Wecome to another edition of Test Your Knowledge! See if you know the answer this week!​

By James McCartney, Senior Numismatist

Proof quarter eagle mintages began to rise in the 1880s and finally crested 100 pieces in 1887 for the first time since 1860.  A relatively steady rise in output followed through the 1890s, with 106 Proof examples struck in 1893. Specialist John Dannreuther explores this issue in-depth in his new 2018 reference United States Proof Coins, Volume IV: Gold, and notes that just a single die pair is responsible for the entire mintage. ​
