CNA LIBRARY FLOODED 

   An article in the October 23, 2000 issue of COIN World 
   (p98) reports that that library of the Canadian Numismatic 
   Association was recently flooded.  The flooding led to a loss 
   of "about 240 books, many journals and library supplies... 
   Several rare books - works by Breton, Leroux and others 
   - were included in the loss." 

KRALJEVICH AT BOWERS & MERENA 

   Sharp-eyed catalog readers may have noticed that E-Sylum 
   subscriber John Kraljevich, Jr. is now listed as a Professional 
   Numismatist on the staff of the Bowers and Merena 
   organization.  John's work may be seen in the catalog of the 
   firm's Robert W. Schwan sale (October 26-27, 2000), 
   particularly in the Bryan Dollar section (lots 1132-1151). 

   In the description of lot 1932 he provides some information 
   on George Frederick Kunz (thought it was gonna say 
   Kolbe, didn't you?).  "In 1895 Kunz was involved in the 
   encouragement of new designs for United States coinage, 
   an effort which brought forth many ideas but produced 
   no lasting results."
