Sorry. Fraser who designed the Buffalo nickel, was married to Laura Gardin Fraser, who designed the Alabama Commemorative Half Dollar. (As best I recall).

She also did the Grant Half dollar and maybe some more too, IIRC.

 

They also both designed what is my favorite commem...the Oregon Trail.

Bobby,

 

I am clueless about Dick Yeo, but I can give you a little information that may help you recognize R.S. Yeoman's name.

  • A Guidebook of United States Coins (the Redbook), by R.S. Yeoman

published annually since 1946

  • A Catalog of Modern World Coin, by R.S. Yeoman

first published in 1957

  • Current Coins of the World, by R.S. Yeoman

first published in 1966

 

All of the above titles are from Whitman Publications, the people that brought us the wonderful Whitman folders!

 

These are just a few titles that I have right here next to the computer.

 

If you ever look through a Krause, you will often see countries that are still cataloged with "Y" numbers, which are from the above mentioned Catalog of Modern World Coins.
