AUTHOR GEORGE MALLIS IS DEAD   

   Paul Withers of Galata Coins writes:  No details have come to  
   us yet, largely as George and his wife had no family, but it is  
   with very deep regret that we tell people that George A.  
   Mallis, joint author/compiler of the book on Morgan dollars,  
   died some time around Christmas, shortly after the death of  
   his wife.   

   George was getting on a bit and we often used to joke to him  
   when he was feeling down that he couldn't possibly die as he  
   was almost the bionic man, having had so many bits and parts  
   replaced.   

   George was a great guy and a constant source of inspiration to  
   us when writing our book on coin-weights and our book,  
   Lions, Ships and Angels, on coin-weights found in Britain was  
   dedicated to him.  When he got going he was virtually  
   unstoppable, despite his age, and he had many interests  
   besides coins and coin-weights.  He retained his interest in  
   being a consulting engineer until the very last."
