POSTAGE CURRENCY PATTERN BOOK SOLD OUT 

   David Cassel writes: "The FUN Show, 2001, was the first coin 
   show that I attended after the publication of my book, "United 
   States Pattern Postage Currency Coins."  While most of  the 
   copies available were subscribed to pre-publication a few months 
   earlier, several more sold post-publication.  When I attended 
   the FUN show, I took the six  remaining unsold copies along 
   with me in hopes of selling them out.  After the first few hours 
   on Friday, January 5th, not a single copy remained. 

   No reprints or republications are anticipated.  Hopefully in a 
   few years, I will publish a  second edition with expanded 
   information.  This is already in progress. 

   I am not sure if it would be proper to reveal who bought each 
   numbered copy.  But I can tell you that from the commercial 
   side, most of the major pattern dealers, P.C.G.S., N.G.C., & 
   SEGS grading services,  the ANA and ANS Library bought 
   my book   From the collector side, as you might expect, the 
   members of our society, USPATTERNS.COM accounted 
   for large numbers, but also several of the FCCB (Fractional 
   Currency Collectors Board) and several NBS members 
   subscribed.  There were a few foreign coin dealers that also 
   accounted for a few copies. 

   Where would any of us be without research?  I wish to thank 
   all who purchased my book for their support."
