RIGHTS TO ANDREWS NUMBERS 

   Terry Trantow writes: "I have been a collector of Australian/ 
   New Zealand coins and tokens since 1962, and just obtained 
   a copy of the year 2000 (19th edition) of 'RENNIKS Australian 
   Coin & Banknote Values'. While it is unfortunate the catalog 
   does not include New Zealand and Tasmanian tokens (as it did 
   in the past), it also does not include Andrews Numbers (used 
   since c.1921 or so) in this new edition.  [Editor's note: 
   Trantow refers to a different Andrews than the subject of the 
   "Devastating Reviews" piece.] 

   A fellow Australian collector relates to me the reason that 
   Andrews numbers were not included was due to restrictions 
   by an American holder of  their copyrighted use, about which I 
   know nothing.  The unfortunate outcome of this situation is that 
   there are now four different catalog numbers (Andrews,Heyde, 
   Renniks, and the NEW Renniks numbers issued for the 
   Australian trade tokens.  The Australian Numismatic Society 
   (ANS) has published a listing of the various old/new catalog 
   numbers of each variety, but there remain some problems when 
   an individual piece is given an incorrect catalog number. Any 
   information a reader or member can offer as to the rights for the 
   Andrews numbers will be welcomed."
