The only issued published. According to Ken Lowe (ìAmerican Numismatic Periodicals from 1860 to 1960: An Overview Based on Remy Bourneís Book of the Same Nameî), ìapparently between 200 and 300 copies of the first issue were produced. The second issue, dated November 1961, was renamed The Numismatic Journal as [Lynn] Glaser took over the journal and withdrew from the Metropolitan Coin Company which had moved to New York City where it was operated by Paul Weinstein.î Breen contributed articles on a 1795 dollar overstruck on a 1794 dollar, Massachusetts silver, and a new sub-variety of 1794 cent.
