NUMISMATIC SCAM OF THE CENTURY  

   To further add to our inventory of  "Sales That Never Were", 
   George Kolbe writes: "Thus far, unless I missed it, no one has 
   mentioned the May 31, 1956 R. H. Burnie Mail Bid Sale. 
   "Canceled" may  not be the proper term, though the sale never 
   took place since the coins offered did not exist.  To my 
   knowledge, the "catalogue" has been offered for public sale only 
   once, in my June 1, 1996 auction, where the substantial catalogue 
   description is headlined  "The Numismatic Scam of the Century."
