OLDEST COIN COLLECTION SOON STOLEN 

   Robert W. Hoge, ANA Museum Curator, writes: "Sadly, a 
   note should be added to George Kolbe's mention of Attinelli's 
   p.75 reference to the collection of ancient medals in Benjamin 
   Franklin's Library Company of Philadelphia as being the 
   earliest recorded in this country.   The collection was stolen by 
   a burglar not long after it was acquired, thus undoubtedly 
   making it a candidate for the oldest recorded numismatic theft 
   in this country, as well.  I have never seen a description of the 
   contents, if one exists."
