Members of the John Reich Collectors Society will be studying a number of die varieties of silver Bust coins from half dimes through dollars May 1 in conjunction with the Early American Coppers Convention in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The convention is being held May 1 to 4 at The Doubletree Colorado Springs, 1775 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd., in Colorado Springs.

Selected for discussion are:

➤ 1829 Capped Bust half dime, LM-18, late die state has a cud or major die break (Federal Half Dimes 1792-1837 by Russell Logan and John McCloskey)

➤ 1824 Capped Bust dimes, JR 1 and JR 2 (Early United States Dimes 1796-1837 by Jules Reiver, David J. Davis, Russell J. Logan, Allen F. Lovejoy, John W. McCloskey, and William L. Subjack)
