Capped Bust dime collector Winston Zack is seeking help to take his collection in a new direction.
After having assembled a nearly complete collection of Capped Bust dimes by die marriage, Zack has decided to start a whole new set by die marriage, but one with an interesting twist. Each of the coins must be holed.
In the April 6 JR Newlsetter, an email publication of the John Reich Collectors Society, Zack explains his collecting focus:
"I do not believe anyone has ever tried to assemble a set of Capped Bust Dimes by die marriage with holes in them, so I thought this would be a fun challenge. I understand that some die marriages are not known with holes, so getting to 100 percent complete is not likely, but nevertheless I will try to get as close as possible.
"... I only have about 10 different die marriages so far (I just began at the start of this year), so I have a long way to go, but if I can reach 100 or more different die marriages that would be, in my opinion, a major accomplishment.
