QUIZ ANSWER: DR. KEN L. ROSENBAUM

Last week I asked, "Who can tell us about "the mysterious Dr.
Ken L. Rosenbaum" and his connection to numismatic literature?"
The first to guess correctly was NBS Asylum Editor-in-Chief David
Fanning, who writes: "Did Armand Champa use that name to bid in
Durst sales?" He adds: "The frightening thing is that this bit
of information is taking up valuable brain cells, which ain't
exactly increasing in number!"

George Kolbe discusses Armand's correspondence dealing with
Sanford Durst in his description of lot 583 in his 99th sale of
numismatic literature.

Dave Lange writes: "I was just reading Kolbe's new catalog this
weekend and came across the interesting Rosenbaum entry. It seems
that was Armand Champa's alias in correspondence with a numismatic
literature dealer who had caused him some consternation. He
evidently believed that no progress could be made in resolving
the dispute without bringing in this fictional third party.

Without resorting to libel, I will add that my own experiences
with that dealer and those of everyone with whom I've spoken about
him were about the same as Armand's."
