SEEING DOUBLE  

   In response to the story about the double-printed article, 
   Pete Smith writes: "I was going to submit something about 
   Brad Karoleff's column in Coin World but you got there first. 
   My copy also has his column printed twice.  I wonder if that 
   represents a new type of literature error and if that issue will 
   become a collector's item."  

   With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Ken Bressett writes: 
   "We have all been worried about the Y2K threat, and now it 
   is evident that the worst has happened.  Two Brad Karoleffs 
   is more than anyone should have to endure.  Is it possible that 
   this is a sign of the beginning of the end of the world? Or has it 
   happened and this is our punishment for past numismatic sins!?"  

   William T. Gibbs, COIN World News Editor writes: "Brad's 
   column appeared twice due to a computer-generated 
   production error (completely unrelated to Y2K, I hasten to 
   add). Brad's second column replaced Gerald Tebben's column, 
   which we are running in the Jan. 24 issue.   Jerry Tebben took 
   the mistake well. He's an editor at the Columbus Dispatch, so 
   he understands how these things happen."
