This year at the ANA banquet, I didn’t get to sit with the Mint’s legal counsel who argued the Langbord case, unlike last year, but I did get a chance to chat with him at the Mint’s booth. I wanted to know a little something about the 1933 that was voluntarily turned in to the Mint after the Langbord litigation was over. Mostly I wanted to know if the owner was a “known name” in numismatics or some mystery man. And I got the answer. He responded that “people who know people” in numismatics would instantly know the name, but it wasn’t a “household name” in the hobby. The name would be meaningless to the casual hobbyist, but one real involved people would know. I didn’t press.
