SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: MIKE BILLINGS 

   New subscriber Mike Billings provided us with the following 
   background information:  "In the way of numismatics I consider 
   myself a generalist.  I like and deal in everything.  I do however 
   have a fondness for U.S. quarter dollars.  I am also very 
   interested in the area of Mexican Numismatics.  I am now 
   focusing on the rare keys of the 20th century.  But I am in no 
   way limited to any specific field.  I know a lot of folks 
   concentrate on a specific area.  Well, I do this for a while and 
   move on to other series, as I believe this gives me a broader 
   numismatic base. 

   As far as literature is concerned, I am currently assembling an 
   Eliasberg catalogue set although I like to collect any catalogues 
   of important numismatists or dealers of the past.  I like Mehl 
   although I don't own any of his catalogues yet. 

   I also frequent old book stores looking for out of print references. 
   I found some nice books just this past week as well as a large 
   series of Numismatists (incomplete) from as early as 1901-1948. 
   I bought approximately 100 issues.  I like any reference of 
   significance in the area of U.S. or Mexican numismatics and 
   related history.  I also like to read Dave Bowers. 

   I'm glad to be on board and look forward to an exciting future 
   in our hobby."
