I'll be glad to take this review--comments in the next 1-2 days. I actually might try to tackle all four of your new coin nominations today; your articles are usually such quick passes that there's no reason to make them wait in the queue. We'll see if I get to it. Thanks as always for the contributions, and I hope things are continuing to improve for you on the health front. -- Khazar2 (talk) 12:40, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

My health has improved, thanks, just about back to normal. Glad for your efforts on any or all.--Wehwalt (talk) 13:07, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Initial comments[edit]

This looks ripe for promotion. I've made a few tweaks here and there; feel free to reverse any with which you disagree, as I'm not an expert in this area. (I am an expert in the St. Louis World's Fair, though, as is everyone from here. You wouldn't believe how much St. Louisans still talk about the fair, the last moment our city could be considered one of the world's major destinations--curse Chicago and its railroads--)

  • "and stating that the changes were being made at Roberts's suggestion." --it seems unlikely that the new reverse stated that-- maybe something like "the new design for the reverse"?
  • "noting that the gold dollar of the Panama-Pacific " -- "noted" is discouraged per WP:WTW; I've replaced this with "stating" if that's all right. This is more guideline than policy, though, so if you feel strongly, feel free to revert.

That's all I got; once that first point is fixed, this is probably ready to pass. I'll begin the checklist in a second to make sure I'm not missing anything. -- Khazar2 (talk) 14:01, 23 July 2013 (UTC)


Rate Attribute Review Comment
1. Well written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct. Prose is clear, save for one minor point above; spotchecks show no issues.
1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation.
2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline.
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines.
2c. it contains no original research.
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic.
3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style).
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each.
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content.
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions.
7. Overall assessment. Pass; there's one minor grammar point above that should be addressed, but there's no reason to put the article on hold for it--I trust you to get it.

Suggested correction: confusing shortened footnotes[edit]

The shortened footnotes refer to a work called "Bowers Encyclopedia, Part [n]", while the full references are to Bowers, Q. David. "Chapter 9: Gold commemoratives, Chapter [n]"—"encyclopedia" does not appear in the title, and "part" is replaced with "chapter". Please change where appropriate.

I've switched the "chapter" to "part". On the other, I do not believe you are correct, the pages are from the digital edition of the book whose title is laid out in the refs, and which is stated on the webpages.--Wehwalt (talk) 03:17, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
I have no opinion on which form is correct—I only think that the title used in the footnotes should match the full bibliography. הסרפד (call me Hasirpad) 04:34, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

What about "Bowers, Encyclopedia?

Never mind about the "encyclopedia" part: my mistake. I didn't read the full bibliographic reference until the end. Thank you for fixing the chapter/part confusion. הסרפד (call me Hasirpad) 18:04, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
