LANGE BUFFALO NICKEL BOOK UPDATE 

   David Lange writes: "Alan Grace informs me that the deluxe 
   edition of my Buffalo Nickel book has been delayed by his 
   supplier of marbled paper. It's possible that the books won't 
   be ready in time for those hoping to give them as holiday gifts, 
   and for that I apologize. I will ship them as soon as they are 
   received by me. 

   In the meantime, the regular edition is in stock and available 
   from me at $30 plus $4.50 shipping.  My mailing address is 
   POB 288, Morris Plains, NJ 07950-0288. AOL has been giving 
   me fits, so please address any email inquiries to 
   DLange@NGCcoin.com. 

   On another subject, I recently became engaged to Alba Acosta, 
   with our wedding planned for August of next year (after the ANA 
   Convention, of course). Though Alba has no interest whatsoever 
   in things numismatic, she has already entered the realm of NBS 
   trivia by being named in the dedication of my new book. 
   Marriage brings with it instant fatherhood, as Alba has an 
   eight-year-old daughter named Amanda. 

   As may be imagined, this new adventure has prompted a number 
   of changes. My overgrown collection of coin boards, folders and 
   albums is gradually finding its way to the basement until such time 
   that we can upgrade our digs, and some of my less often used 
   books may soon join them in the darkness.  I suspended my 
   collecting of "nice" coins over a year ago, though having so many 
   old albums around has compelled me to begin filling them with 
   coins purchased at or near their silver value.  Thus, my old 
   childhood sets, most of which were disposed of years ago, are 
   gradually being replaced.  Ironically, when one adjusts for 
   inflation, silver coins are now worth less at their bullion value than 
   they were when I was taking them from circulation at face value. 
   As they say in this part of the country, go figure!"
