Frank Gasparro's Copy of Coin World

Description (Brief)
This front page of Coin Worldstill has the mailing label that addressed the subscription to Frank Gasparro's home. Gasparro preferred his Flowing Hair Liberty design to the Susan B Anthony, but both were Gasparro's designs. When this article asked readers to vote, "Liberty or Susan B. ? Which do you prefer," Coin World readers voted for the beautiful coin with the allegorical imagery of Lady Liberty. Befitting the 1970s focus on women's liberation, congress chose an image of Susan B. Anthony, an actual figure from American history. The Susan B. Anthony coin was the first American woman on an American coin.
