COGAN-MASON RANDALL CATALOG DEBATE 

   Former NBS President Michael J. Sullivan writes: "Your 
   mention of the Cogan letter in the Library of Congress provided 
   just the first paragraph of a lengthy letter by Cogan on the 
   Randall Collection cataloguing debate between himself and 
   "Brother"  Mason.  Mr. Charlie Davis has done the numismatic 
   community quite a favor by reprinting all known Cogan letters 
   on this topic in his three volume reprint of a complete set of 
   Mason periodicals.  The letters appear as a supplement in the 
   third volume.  By reading the Mason periodicals and the 
   Cogan letters, one can see how the initial rankling turned into 
   a lambasting debate.  Copies of the book are available from 
   Charlie Davis.  Besides, the reprint at around $160 is only 
   about 2% the cost of originals if you can ever find them."
