    Strange that John is not getting back to me on my submission from last October. It's been nearly a year and my messages have gone unanswered. I knew he was not well but this recent article tells me he is still at the microscope. Has anyone else gotten submissions back since last year?

    yes here is his email to me
    Hello Robert,


    I want to humbly apologize for the length of time that it has taken to process the package of coins that you sent postmarked April 22, 2019. As you know, when coins arrive here the package is placed in the processing line in the order of their postmark date. As per the attribution guidelines, it may take 4 to 6 weeks for a package to make it to the front of the processing line. This is when things are going well.


    However, things have not been going well on several fronts including some personal setbacks not the least of which is Parkinson’s Disease. The tremors associated with the disease have made it increasingly difficult to hold coins under the microscope to examine them or photograph them. Typing an e-mail or a letter has become equally troublesome as I constantly have to go back to correct misspelled words.


    Also on the health front is the fact that on March 11 I underwent total knee replacement surgery for my left knee. After a brief three-day hospital stay I was unable to do steps until physical therapy rehab started a week later. Of course, my office is in our basement which is accessible only from a full flight of steps. Although I was sidelined, the mail continued to pour in.


    Then thanks to some YouTube videos that have been encouraging people to send their coins to me the flood gates have opened and the processing line is longer than it has ever been. Right now I am overwhelmed but I hope to get back to some degree normalcy within the next few weeks. I want to thank you for your kindness, patience, and understanding during this difficult period of time. I am sure that the wait has been very frustrating for you. I can assure you that the delays have been equally frustrating for me.

    Coin #3 is a 2013-P Maryland quarter that is indeed a doubled die that I already have listed as 2013-P 25¢ MD WDDR-003. It can be seen on the appropriate page of my website. Since it is a very nice find I plan to use it in my Varieties Notebook column in Coin World. It is scheduled to appear in the column in the September 16, 2019 issue.


    Once again I apologize for the delay in getting your package processed. Good luck with all of your collecting efforts.


    Sincerely,

    John A. Wexler

    Thank you. It's good to know that he is still active. There was really only one coin I was concerned about. It was a bold 1968 S Roosevelt dime doubled die that I could not find in his files. Appreciate your response.
