Comments

"What does the reference number, Judd 445 indicate/mean? As a Judd, I am curious. "
"The "Judd 445 " reference number refers to the book, United States Pattern, Experimental and Trial Pieces by collector and author, Dr. J. Hewitt Judd. "Judd numbers " are often used to identify various coins."
