John Dannreuther (2020)
Debating the striking format of the 1841 quarter eagle has been ongoing since several prominent dealers began the theory that some of this issue were struck for circulation. This debate has continued with advocates for both proof striking and circulation striking of this enigmatic issue, as they are not recorded in Mint records. Both sides will present their evidence. Presenting: John Dannreuther, numismatist for over 50 years. This presentation was part of the 2020 Newman Numismatic Portal Sympsosium, held virtually, August 28-30, 2020.
