​Larry Ness was inspired by the remarkable degree of completion that was revealed when the John J. Ford, Jr. holdings of Indian Peace medals were offered by Stack’s in 2006 and 2007. He set out to complete the series for himself, acquiring specimens from many sources. Some were pieces found in past auction offerings, while others were medals he found off the beaten path, so to speak. While this collection is not complete as to silver originals (which would require 45 medals, including the Seasons Medals and a Washington oval), there are remarkably 36 examples included.

​I love to read books. At any given time I have two or three in the wings and one at my side. Apart from the subject matter, for me a key to enjoying a book is the writing style of the author. I bought a recently-published history of Boston that, to me, was about as interesting to read as an adding machine tape.

​In which 19th Century year could you own three $1 Coins of different types? Share this post on Facebook and see if you or your friends can get the correct answer!

​The early United States Mint practice of inserting silver plugs into half dollars and dollars to regulate their weights is perhaps one of the most romanticized techniques used to produce America's first coinage. It recalls an era of handcrafted workmanship and motivates today's collectors to examine their Flowing Hair coinage in the hopes of uncovering one of these surprises.
