From simple proof die cracks.




September 26, 2004 -- A friend of mine recently told me it appeared I was having a lot of trouble tooting my own horn. He knew the Numismatic Literary Guild had bestowed upon me, the NLG Award for the best article (or series or articles) on coins in a numismatic newspaper. In my absence, Dave Harper, Managing Editor of Numismatic News, accepted it for me at the American Numismatic Association convention this past August. When he advised me that I had won it and that he was sending it on to me, I was completely surprised and I might add, delighted.

Getting back to my friend, he told me that word of the award belonged on my web site and he alluded to it belonging on the CONECA web site too because the subject of the series related to error-variety coins. So here it is!

I'd like to thank Dave Harper at Numismatic News for finding my series on the recent Spiked Head finds on proof coins, worthy enough for him to submit to the NLG for consideration! I'd also like to thank those at the NLG who did the judging and decided to bestow this prestigious honor upon me for doing so. And to Mike Bozyinski of the Royal Oak Mint -- thanks for giving me the kick needed to toot my horn!

Hi Pat - Tough to get a scan of such a minor error, but here it is, as you asked.




No "button hole" on this coin.
