THE LAST MONEY TREE SALE 

   Though no one knew it at the time, November's sale of the 
   Ken Lowe library would be the last sale for The Money Tree. 
   Several E-Sylum subscribers were in attendance at the sale, 
   which took place in Dearborn, MI, on Saturday November 
   27th, 1999. 

   John and Nancy Wilson penned an article about the sale for 
   the December 7, 1999 issue of Numismatic News.    The 
   final passage of the article follows: 

  "We would like to say a few words about our friend Kenneth 
   M. Lowe.  He was a good friend of almost everyone that is 
   known in our numismatic hobby.   To sum up Ken’s life - he 
   was like Will Rogers who never met a person he didn't like. 
   We never heard Ken say anything bad about anyone, and he 
   always had a smile on his face.  He always had a kind word 
   or cute greeting when you met him at a convention.  He was 
   a great conversationalist.  We have been receiving The Money 
   Tree catalogs almost from the start and always enjoyed 
   participating in their sales.  Over the years, Ken edited one of 
   the most interesting publications you could ever find, “Out on 
   a Limb.”  Every year after the ANA convention, he would take 
   the time to do an article in the Limb on the convention.  It was 
   always interesting and well done.   His passing left a great void 
   in our numismatic hobby.  This two part sale of his outstanding 
   library (floor & mail bid and mail bid only), is a testament to 
   how great a collector Ken was when it came to numismatic 
   books and literature."
