MIAMI HERALD PROFILES CURRENCY COLLECTOR EDWARD DAUER

"Joanne Dauer knew her future husband, Edward, was a collector
when he picked her up for their first date. The year was 1974,
and he arrived in a 1941 Cadillac.

Edward Dauer's collections have gone from stamps to cars to
currency. Eventually, the Dauers amassed the only collection of
every type of U.S. currency note from 1861 to 1923. They even
wrote a book about it -- American History as Seen Through Currency,
published in 2003.

Now, saying they are ready for a new challenge, the Coral Springs
couple is selling part of the collection. And the first sale was
a doozy -- two notes went for more than $2.1 million each."

"One is a $1,000 Treasury note from 1891...  The second is a
$100 gold certificate from 1863, which was used to pay for the
cost of the Civil War, he said...

Many other currency collectors didn't even know one existed until
the Dauers' book -- which has sold about 4,500 copies -- was
published."

In his other life, Edward Dauer is director of radiology at
Florida Medical Center and a professor at his alma mater, the
University of Miami. Joanne Dauer also works in healthcare with

Florida Medical Services."

"The sale doesn't mark the end of the Dauer's collecting. They
plan to hold on to part of their currency collection."

"It's going to take years to sell," Edward Dauer said."
