Wayland, Massachusetts: Al Hoch, editor, Jan.-Mar. 1962. Small 8vo, self-covered as issued. 7, (1) pages; illustrated. Fine. Item #3366
A rare original issue of this groundbreaking publication. The initial recipients of the CNL were few in number and the first issues were printed by Al Hoch (of later Quarterman fame) in a small 8 by 5.5 inch format featuring high-quality plates. These were reprinted in the 1970s in the larger format (with an introduction serving as No. 8), which is the form most frequently encountered. This issue includes a letter from W. Philip Keller, Dick Pickerís announcement of a new sub-variety of Kentucky token, Ned Barnsleyís announcement of a new Connecticut copper obverse (33.46), Ted Buttrey on the Connecticut coppers at Yale, and the continuation of Bob Vlackís work on the 1767 French Colonies sous.
