BUILDING THE SUPERIOR COIN COMPANY LIBRARY

Regarding the Superior Coin Company numismatic library, Julian
Leidman writes: "It was built primarily by Ira and Larry Goldberg
who founded the firm.  I remember bidding for them at some Frank
Katen auctions to acquire books for the library.

When I last saw the library, it was on movable steel shelves and
clearly numbered in the hundreds, if not thousands of titles, all
related to numismatics, but there may have been some books on
autographs, as well, as Ira got quite involved with that.  I am
pretty sure that the library should have grown, but the cornerstone
was certainly laid by the Goldberg cousins."

[I hadn't yet seen my copy of Coin World when I wrote up last
week's item about the library. There was a nice illustrated article
with more information than the short Numismatic News piece I quoted.
It is indeed stored on compact, moveable metal shelves, as is the
National Numismatic Collection library.  -Editor]
