[Bowers, Q. David, et al.]. Hathaway and Bowers; Bowers and Ruddy; Bowers and Merena. CHOICE RARE COINS / SPECIAL COIN LETTER. 170 issues (1970-93), constituting a complete run (65 issues) of these titles issued under both the Hathaway & Bowers and Bowers & Ruddy names, as well as a mostly complete set (105 issues) of those issued under the aegis of Bowers & Merena. Includes occasional other mailings. 8.5 by 11 inch format. Folded for mailing; some date-stamped; generally very good to fine. The Special Coin Letter was issued by the various Bowers firms to highlight new purchases and offer them for sale. Only two issues were published under the Hathaway and Bowers name, with 63 being recorded under Bowers and Ruddy by Michael Sullivan in his listing of these ephemeral publications in the Vol. 12, No. 1 issue of The Asylum. Bowers and Merena Galleries would later reinstate publication of the SCL in 1984. Significant runs are infrequently offered and the early issues in particular are rarely seen.
