Week's Most Read: Feedback returns values

Cuts made to the May monthly issue primarily came from the U.S. Coins Values section, including for modern and current series like Washington quarter dollars. Reader objections to the changes have led us to restore the excised series, though cuts have had to be made to other sections to compensate.
