SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: PAUL WITHERS 

   Author and numismatic literature dealer Paul Withers posts 
   the following information on his web site 
   (http://www.galatacoins.demon.co.uk/): 

   "Since I gave up teaching 26 years ago we have been full-time 
   dealers in coins and numismatic books. Another main activity 
   is writing.  We have just published A Catalogue of British 
   Copper Tokens 1811-20. We have also written British 
   Coin-Weights, A Corpusí; Lions, Ships and Angels - 
   Coin-weights found in Britain, and A Catalogue of the Collection 
   of Coins, Tokens, Dies, etc., in the Assay Office, Birmingham. 
   Currently we are researching european coin-weights, lead 
   weights, the halfpence and farthings of Edward I to Charles I - 
   and simmering on the back burner are several other works 
   which are too far into the future to even think about at present. 

   Our house, a former pub, built before Colombus set sail, is 
   stuffed with our ever-growing personal library of around 4500 
   numismatic books.  We moved here, to the wilds of Mid-Wales, 
   seven years ago, to get away from urban nastiness. 

   I am a fellow of the Royal Numismatic Society and a member 
   of the British Numismatic Society. I am membership secretary 
   of the Oriental Numismatic Society. My wife is a member of the 
   British Art Medal Society.  We are interested in almost the 
   entire spectrum of numismatics from ancient to modern. We 
   collect: coins of India, coin-weights of the world, weights and 
   scales, 19th-century copper tokens, brothel tokens, numismatic 
   books, books on cookery and engraved glass measures."
