WHAT'S A BINDING WORTH? 

   NBS Vice President Tom Sheehan writes:  "I recently purchased 
   a set of numismatic books that came in two or three bindings with 
   a couple of volumes unbound.  I decided that the set would be 
   both more usable if bound and more attractive.  Now I didn't hold 
   back much, if anything, in the binding.  The cost of binding and the 
   shipping equaled one third of what I paid for the set. 

   It is entirely possible that my two-year-old granddaughter will be 
   the financial benefactor.  In the meantime I have a "killer" set for 
   my bookshelf.  I find it hard to pass that section of the shelf 
   without admiring the spines or picking one off the shelf just to 
   hold or rummage through. 

   Others might spend two or three thousand dollars to put a real 
   nice paint job on an vintage automobile and know they will 
   never make a dime on the deal.  We can have pride of ownership 
   in numismatics just like in other hobbies."
