MORE CELEBRITY NUMISMATISTS 

   Ken Barr writes: "I'm surprised that no one mentioned 
   Michelle Johnson (15 minutes of topless fame for "Blame It on 
   Rio") who bought an 1894-S Barber dime for $50,600 in the 
   Jerry Buss sale (Superior, 1985).  Her current claim to fame is 
   being married to Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Matt 
   Williams." 

   Bill Rosenblum writes: "A few  "CELEBRITY" numismatists 
   that I know of: Angie Dickenson, the actress, whom I met at a 
   show in the LA area in the early 1980's; James Earl Jones was 
   a customer of a number of LA firms and thus was persuaded to 
   narrate the video that David Lisot produced, the ANA and PNG 
   sponsored a number of years ago that was seen on PBS ... 
   (And I can't remember the name of it).  Also,  the ex-mayor of 
   Jerusalem, Teddy Kollek, was an avid numismatist and two other 
   collectors (or more likely investors) were Randy Gradishar, 
   ex-linebacker for Ohio State and the Denver Broncos, who 
   helped us with some free advertising work for coins shows we 
   ran in Denver in the early 1980's and Julius (Dr. J) Erving.  I also 
   know a few other comparatively famous people who collect 
   (and are serious numismatists) but since I value my clients' 
   privacy I can't reveal their names at the moment.   I'm sure there 
   are plenty of similar people out there."
