Goertz Daler Variety 7: Cronan - Extra Jewels

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Yet another variety has been found, ironically on another Eric P. Newman piece. I finally finished a large project I had been working on, so I have more time to dedicate to my search. I am still very excited about the previous variety I found, and I plan on contacting individuals with more knowledge than I possess to prove my conclusion correct or incorrect. For now, I am going to continue my search.

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Upon reviewing 1716 Publica Fide pieces for my previous blog, I found another very neat and peculiar reverse variety. If you have not read my previous blog, I strongly encourage you to read it because I am going to use information from its body to draw conclusions in this blog.

Goertz Daler Variety 5: 1716 Publica Fide - Long Serif

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

The search for Goertz daler varieties persists . . . this time the discovery is on the 1716 Publica Fide, or Public Trust, design. When searching the web for any fellow Goertz variety hunters, I was surprised to find one Swedish website article covering several discovered varieties, mostly on the Publica Fide piece. The website is in Swedish, so it was difficult for me to understand the words, but thankfully, images were included. None of the varieties that the individual found were like ones that I have found, but it was interesting to see another individual's take on the search for them.

Numismatic Book Review: "In God We Trust," by William Bierly

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

“In God We Trust,” by Bill Bierly, is by far one of the most well-researched and comprehensive numismatic books I have read. Mr. Bierly’s research goes above and beyond to allow the reader to learn as much relevant information as possible, in a manner that can be easily understood. Mr. Bierly’s work draws original conclusions and discusses individuals and events that are often never discussed. The book is a little over 300 pages, with each page worth reading. The reader can embark on a journey through the history of the nation’s motto. Mr. Bierly delves into a much deeper take on the national motto than most authors have ever taken; Mr. Bierly’s time, effort, and love for the work shines through each page. I took a suggestion that Long Beard made on one of my older blogs and purchased “In God We Trust” for about $25 (small member discount at Books-A-Million). I must say, the book is well-worth the time and money, and it is most definitely an enjoyable read for anyone interested in the topics surrounding the national motto. I would suggest this book to anyone with any sort of interest in numismatics, United States history, or learning something new.

My search for Goertz daler varieties has been on pause for the past couple weeks due to schoolwork and a much larger numismatic writing project. I discovered a new variety while scrolling through image after image of the pieces, and it is yet again on the reverse of the Flink Och Fardig piece.

Goertz Daler Variety 2: 1718 Flink Och Fardig - Straight and Curved Leg

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

In part two of my search for more Goertz daler varieties, I stumbled upon a minor variation in the Flink Och Fardig, or Agile and Ready, daler. The variety, though not as dramatic as the previous High Bolt and Low Bolt varieties of the Jupiter daler, still could be considered as such because it has a distinct variation from other pieces.
