Volume 65 No. 3 March 2019

Editor’s Notes

Sorry, my bad. Although the January Chatter showed the new URL for the Central States Numismatic Society website, and we told you to drop the old URL which we had shown for years (and which we conveniently listed for you), the February Chatter still used the old URL with no trace of the new!

That old URL no longer worked — I tried it, and saw a notice that the registration credential was for a different domain, and it asked me if I really wanted to risk following it. Clicking on yes took me to the website for the Medal Collectors of America — which is pretty, but not the CSNS website I wanted.

An advantage of publishing this newsletter online is that found errors can be corrected at a later date, with only a small change to the appropriate file. And now, if you look at the online February Chatter, the URL for the new CSNS website is listed with no trace of the earlier error! Members who receive printed Chatter issues must suffer forever with the original error.

Speaker’s Wor[l]d
The 2018 Canadian Viola Desmond Commemorative $10 Bill

presented by Dale Lukanich,
to our February 13, 2019 meeting.

The arrest and trial of Viola Desmond is credited with publicly bringing to light the racial segregation that existed in Canada. Although Canada had no provincial segregation laws similar to some State laws in the United States, groups and individuals could have rules and policies enforcing segregation. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1914, Viola Desmond was unable to attend the white-only beautician school in Halifax, so she trained in Montreal, Atlantic City, and New York before returning to Halifax to start her own salon.

Back in Halifax, Viola Desmond started her own beautician school, The Desmond School of Beauty Culture,and also her own line of beauty products, Vi’s Beauty Products. While on a business trip, her car broke dowm in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia on November 8, 1946 — having to spend the night it town while waiting for spare parts, she decided to watch a movie at the Roseland Film Theatre. She asked for a main floor seat, but was sold a ticket for a seat in the balcony. The theater had no signs stating the policy, but main floor seats were reserved for whites. After taking a seat on the main floor, and refusing to leave when told she was in a white-only area, she was removed, spent the night in jail, and paid a $20 fine the next day — for cheating the province of the one-cent difference between a main floor ticket (3 cents out of a 40-cent ticket), and a balcony ticket (2 cents out of a 20-cent ticket).

After returning to Halifax, she decided to fight the criminal charge in court. During the trials, the government maintained this was a tax evasion case — after all, the law mentioned nothing about race. But by basing the final appeal on the tax evasion aspect and not the racist motivation, she lost — Justice Hall, in dismissing the appeal, mentioned that Viola Desmond would have been better served by a different approach, even wondering if the theater manager who filed the complaint was inspired by the cheating of the province of one cent in tax, or had used the law to enforce a private rule.

Viola Desmond closed her businesses, moved to Montreal, and eventually moved to New York City where she died on February 7, 1965. On April 14, 2010, the province of Nova Scotia granted Desmond a posthumous free pardon, the first to be issued in Canada. In November of 2019, the Bank of Canada issued the Viola Desmond commemorative $10 bill. Dale then showed how certain bill features either relate to her life serve as security features. This polymer bill still uses the purple color as found on all recent Canadian $10 bills, but this bill appears to have elements sideways!

But only if you view the note with the long dimension positioned horiontally. View the note with the long dimension positioned vertically, and everything is fine — this is the first Canadian bill using a vertical orientation! This note, made from a single piece of polymer, has some transparent areas containing a range of different items with different properties. Three maple leaves are above the portrait: the gold to green color shift, of the feather on the back, appears through the smallest leaf; the middle leaf is purple, and the largest leaf is a clear window. Brail appears to the right of the three maple leaves.

Raised ink is used in only some places: in the portrait, in the word “CANADA,” and in the large 10. A large metallic window is visible from both sides — this shows the vaulted dome ceiling of The Library of Parliament, along with its Gothic Revival windows. Tilt the note to see sharp color changes in the metallic elements. The largest maple leaf in a group of three is shaded gray to give it a 3-D effect, but rub a finger across it to verify the surface is flat; the colors of the two smaller leaves change to match the color of the dome and window.

Another maple leaf is clear and is surrounded by a thin border, but it also has 10 repeated many times in an hexagonal grid: each 10 is surround by six other instances – to the left, upper left, upper right, right, lower right, and lower left. Shine a laser pointer through this clear maple leaf, and a pattern of 10s will be projected from the bill. The last of the covered security features was the eagle feather on the back of the bill — the color changes between green and gold as the bill is flexed and, as mentioned above, the color change also appears in a maple leaf on the opposite side of the bill. The eagle feather is a symbol of truth, power, and freedom; other symbolic and historical features of the bill were identified during the remainder of the program.

The back of the bill shows an external view of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the first museum of its kind in the world — it is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The crisscrossing ramps in the museum symbolize the back and forth struggles for human rights in the world. To the left of the portrait of Viola Desmond is a rendering of a map of the North End of Halifax, the communinity where Viola Desmond lived and worked; the waterfront and Citadel are found among the grid of un-named streets.

Show and Tell

Items shown at our February 13, 2019 meeting,
reported by John Riley.

  1. Darren Hooper Showed a PCGS-certified and encapsulated 1856 Flying Eagle cent graded MS-63 (with CAC sticker). The coin is a rare pattern piece for the 1857-58 production series. The 1856 version was distributed to government officials in anticipation of approval for the reduced diameter U.S. one cent coin that would follow, and approximately 500 pieces are believed extant — only a few are finer than this one. The coin Darren showed is currently being offered for sale at the offices of Harlan J. Berk for $35,000.
  2. Mark Wieclaw Mark exhibited five Morgan silver dollars from the General Services Administration (GSA) sales of the 1970s and 1980s. Some of these items were from a recent group purchase. Mark elaborated on the selection criteria used by the numismatically unaware staff that first encased the coins — “shiny” seemingly being the only criterion for designation as uncirculated versus circulated.
    1. Two 1885-O, one uncirculated and one circulated.
    2. One 1882-CC deemed circulated because of so called tarnish/toning.
    3. One 1883-CC deemed uncirculated but having extreme dark toning on both sides — this is Mark’s original coin ordered directly from the government in the 1970s, and a bit of a disappointment when received because it was so dark! In contrast, this coin’s package was labeled “uncirculated” by the GSA.
    4. One 1884-CC that is bright uncirculated.
  3. Lyle Daly started with a reflection on the January 2019 meeting (the 1200th) and how the hobby to him is now about the connection to people and places; people in attendance today and those who have gone before — a worthy focus in this centennial year. Then he showed three items.
    1. A Connecticut ’shinplaster’ note purchased from Bruno Repka in April of 2004 while at the DuPage County, Illinois Civil War Show .This is a promissory note from Connecticut for Service in the Continental Army in the amount of 18 Shillings, 3 pence, and 3 farthings. The trail of interest payments is recorded on the back, documenting transactions from 1783 to 1789, presumably when the note was canceled. The two parts of the note are sewn together.
    2. One volume of the two-volume The America Numismatic Association Centennial History by Q. David Bowers. Lyle had bought this book years ago from Bob Feiler, and he recently found inside it an ANA flyer addressed to Harry Flower, a distinguished member of the Club now deceased.
    3. A British Anti-Slavery halfpenny token (circa 1795) modeled after a 1787 medal designed by English potter and fervent abolitionist Josiah Wedgewood. It shows a kneeling slave and the motto, AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER? The reverse shows clasped hands with the motto, MAY SLAVERY AND OPPRESSION CEASE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. The edge legend is PAYABLE IN DUBLIN CORK OR BELFAST.
  4. Deven Kane showed three European crowns.
    1. A 1787 ecu from France, minted in Bayonne, featuring a uniformed bust of Louis XVI, 1774-1792. The reverse shows the crowned arms of France within branches. Well meaning, indecisive, and totally unprepared for the throne he inherited, few monarchs ended up worse than Louis XVI. This silver crown was issued 2 years before the fall of the Bastille.
    2. An 1807 5 Franchi of the Lucca and Piombino Italian Principality, featuring the conjoined busts of Felix and Elisa Bonaparte, 1805-1814. The reverse shows the value within a wreath, with the date below. After proclaiming himself Emperor, Napoleon placed many of his siblings on European thrones: Joseph became King of Naples and then Spain, Louis became King of Holland, and Jerome became King of the newly created Kingdom of Westphalia. This coin shows where Napoleon’s sister Elisa ended up — until Napoleon lost.
    3. An 1834 Kronentaler of the Duchy of Baden, featuring Leopold (1830-1852) on the obverse. The reverse features a crowned coat-of-arms with crowned griffins as supporters. Leopold was the oldest son from the second, and morganatic, marriage of the Margrave (and soon to be Grand Duke) Karl Friederich of Baden, and therefore not eligible for the succession. In 1817, one of the last male descendants from the first marriage gave rights of succession the children from the second marriage.
  5. Bob Leonard showed four books on Asian numismatics.
    1. A catalog with Chinese title and text, illustrated with rubbings, of Chinese primitive money, ancient coins, and modern coins. It was acquired on a business trip to Beijing in 1994.
    2. A recent auction catalog of a collection of ancient Chinese primitive money, illustrated with color photographs, purchased last month in Singapore. This catalog was printed in China about 25 years after the previous item, and shows great improvement in printing capability.
    3. The Early Coins of Myanmar (Burma): Messengers from the Past [First Millenium AD] by Dietrich Mahlo. This was purchased by mail from the Bangkok publisher last year.
    4. Auspicious Symbols and Ancient Coins of Myanmar by Than Htun (Dedaye). Bob bought this from the author in Yangon, Myanmar, last week. The author completed it during the dictatorship of the generals and was unable to have it published in Myanmar, so he had it done in Malaysia. The book includes a fascinating account of one man’s 25-year search for old Myanmar coins throughout a country with no coin dealers. While it has many errors, in Bob’s opinion it corrects Mahlo’s careful work in a few places.
  6. Rich Lipman showed a range of paper money items.
    1. A “lucky 8s” souvenir note from the ANA’s 2018 Philadelphia World’s Fair of Money: the serial number consisted mostly of 8’s and the bill was dated 8-18-18!
    2. Two pieces of paper money origami: a U.S. one-dollar bill intricately folded into the flat shape of a human skull, using the bill’s engraving as eyes and other parts; and a one-dollar bill folded into the 3-D shape of a camera.
    3. A Romanian 5000 Lei banknote with a 1931 date and a 9-06-1940 overprint. Some debate ensued over the identity of the portrayed monarch — was it Michael I or his father, the mustachio’ed Carol II? Printed by Bradbury Wilkinson & Co., the slab carries the identification
    4. An 50-mark PMG-58 encapsulated banknote from the French/German Saar region dated 1947, featuring a beautifully engraved image of an idealized female head.
    5. A 1933 10 dollar silver certificate, with serial number A00001299A. This rare note is the key note in the series, and it was also the first in the series. The legend states it is payable in silver coin to bearer on demand.
  7. James McMenamin started with European coins showing multiple monarchs.
    1. A Belgin 1951 silver 100 franc featuring busts of four kings on the obverse: Leopold I, Leopold II, Albert I, and Leopold III.
    2. A 30 drachmai silver coin from Greece commemorating the 1863-1963 centennial of the royal house, and showing the busts of five kings on the obverse: Paul, George II, Alexander, Constantine I and George I. The reverse features a map of Greece.
    3. An interesting separation error on the reverse clad layer of a 1970 U.S. 10-cent coin.
  8. Audrius Plioplys gave a brief tribute to Chicago Coin Club Hall-of-Famer and club charter member Dr. Alexander Rackus. Andrius considers Dr. Rackus a model and mentor of sorts as a pioneer medical doctor in Chicago’s Lithuanian community as well as a sophisticated numismatist. Dr. Rackus was a major benefactor to the national history museum in Lithuania and published the premier work, Cyclopedia of Lithuanian Numismatics (1965). Audrius showed his copy of the illustrated book.
  9. Bill Burd showed Bulletins from the Israel Numismatic Society of Illinois (INSI) from 1970 to 1989. He explained how they were the property of Saul Needleman and were given to Carl Wolf along with five boxes of miscellaneous books and catalogs. Saul was very involved with the INSI, being a past president, Board member, and for a short time secretary. Carl gave the boxes of material to Bill to review and see what could be sold at the Club’s November 2018 auction and what should be discarded. Seeing that the INSI Bulletins were substantial, Bill called Bob Leonard, who also was very involved with the Society, to see if he had any Bulletins that were missing from Saul’s group. He did, and Bill filled what gaps he could and sent them to Len Augsburger who had them scanned into the Newman Numismatic Portal. Bill’s point in telling the story is that all the participants belong to the Chicago Coin Club, and that is why this all came together. Without the Club we would not have that link which made this work.
  10. Melissa Gumm showed three foreign banknotes that highlight her interest in the history of who is portrayed and the evolution of technology, particularly the anti-counterfeiting features.
    1. Republic of Poland — 10 zlotych note from 2016 with portrait of Duke Mieszko I, and a silver dinar coin pictured on the back. The group of eighth-inch diameter rings, which Melissa called “doughnuts,” are an anti-counterfeiting measure; when the arrangement of rings is recognized by a copier machine, the copier will not print a copy!
    2. Two Hungarian notes, 1000 and 2000 forint, from the 1997 series. King Matthias Corvinus is featured on the 1000 forint note, and Prince Soverign Gabriel Bethlen is featured on the 2000 forint note.
  11. David Gumm showed two “dime banks” from the Millikin Bank of Decatur, Illinois. These are Well-made and enamel-decorated steel tubes in which to insert up to fifty 10-cent coins — the idea was to encourage kids to plan ahead by saving money; the bank held the key to the little banks and would deposit the coins into an account upon redemption.
  12. Scott McGowan showed items related to the military.
    1. Joining our club in celebrating a centennial this year is the American Legion. Scott showed a commemorative 100th anniversary “Challenge Coin” of the Legion 1919-2019, a stamped First Day Cover from 1969 — the fiftieth anniversary of the organization, and the organization’s 100th anniversary patch.
    2. “Relic” copper tokens made from copper sheathing reclaimed from the U.S.S. Constitution during its 1973-1976 restoration. The oldest U.S. Navy warship (1798) in active commission is now a floating museum in Boston harbor. The copper in the ship’s keel was supplied by Boston silversmith Paul Revere.
  13. Richard Hamilton showed two modern items.
    1. His engraved membership token from the Liberty Seated Collectors Club (LSCC) — the obverse of this well executed dollar-sized piece uses Gobrecht’s rendition of Liberty from the 1837-91 series. It is a one ounce, .999 fine silver, piece.
    2. A 24K gold foil novelty banknote of the 1882 series $100 Gold Certificate.
  14. Ed Kedzie showed a copy of the 1960 book Selections from The Numismatist — United States Coins obtained from the estate of Hugh M. Knight, 1961 President of the Chicago Coin Club. Ed knew a family in Chicago who were neighbors of Knight, and was able to obtain the book (still with a raised library bookplate).
  15. Dale Lukanich showed three printed items.
    1. A current Canadian $100 polymer note with the portrait of Sir Robert Borden. The reverse design includes the Canadian national coat of arms and a rendition of the East Block of the Parliament Building. Dale had asked a neighbor to retrieve an immaculate $100 note for him during a recent trip to Canada — the returned note unfortunately had severe folds and staple holes!
    2. A Confederate States of America Scrip Certificate denominated in the amount of $10,000. To obtain this piece, Confederate bonds with a face value of $10,000 were submitted to the organiers. This was issued well after the Civil War, as part of a private European effort for the United States Government to pay holders of Confederate bonds!
    3. A March, 1865 Confederate non-taxable certificate payable upon the “completion of hostilities with the United States.”
  16. Jack Smith showed two recent acquisitions.
    1. A French jeton (Treasury Token) dated 1735 and portraying King Louis XIV. Some conversation ensued over the proper identity and issuer of the token.
    2. A ½-cent Canadian pre-Federation token issued by the Bank of Montreal — the token is the size of the contemporary English half-penny.
