The Carson City Coin Collectors of America (C4OA) has released the Spring 2011 issue of its award-winning journal, Curry’s Chronicle. In it, President Rusty Goe calls his club “‘CC’ Coin Central.”
“Our journal consistently offers more information about Carson City coins and related themes than can be found anywhere,” Goe wrote.
This edition features articles by nine writers, three of them first-time contributors. Newcomer David Reimer covers 1875-CC and 1876-CC Trade dollars. Bruce Spence, another first-timer, shares his discoveries in reed counts and Breen varieties on 1876-CC quarters. Mary Elise Arnold-Giambrone became the club’s second female writer with her article, “What’s So Great About Collecting Carson City Coins?”
Weimar W. White writes about 1881-CC Morgan silver dollars in Mint State prooflike condition.
Mitchell Yee, the club’s resident authority on GSA Carson City dollars, provides tips on what to look for when buying unopened boxes of GSA-sale silver dollars. John Kroon describes how he cultivates an interest in coin collecting in his grandchildren. Michael Parrott’s article directs readers to the C4OA’s website to view profiles of every date-denomination combination released by the Carson City Mint.
Tom DeFina’s article gives a glimpse into the once-thriving Comstock mining camp in Gold Hill, Nev. Goe caps off the issue with an article on the seven denominations dated 1872-CC from the Battle Born Collection.
