The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 28, July 9, 2006, Article 23

SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: JIM URBANIAK

Jim writes: "I recently moved to Pittsburgh from Portland, OR
(actually Vancouver, WA) and my wife and I will be settling into
our new house July 8th. I collect cigar tokens, metallic seasonal
sports/baseball passes, Colonial/Pre-Federal American coinage and
am completing a family birth year set from 1698 - 1971.  I also
have a modest collection of Conder Tokens, Byzantine pieces and
have been phasing out of Roman and Greek over the past several
years."

Larry Gaye writes: "I want to personally welcome Jim Urbaniak as
a new subscriber to The E-Sylum.  He is a good guy and we are sorry
to lose him from the West Coast.  Please join me in welcoming him."

[We're glad to have Jim on board, and for me it was a curious
coincidence that he's moving to Pittsburgh.  Jim emailed me about
joining the Western Pennsylvania Numismatic Society (WPNS).  As
most of you know, I'm a Pittsburgh native and longtime member of
WPNS, a small group of great numismatists with a tradition dating
back to 1878.

What most of you didn't know is that I'm now in the process of
relocating to Northern Virginia.  I'll miss spending time with all
my Pittsburgh-area coin buddies but it's nice to know that some new
folks are coming in to the area.  Keep my seat warm!   The recent
sales of parts of my collection will seed the kids' college fund as
well as help us get into a house big enough for the family AND my
library.

Once I get settled I hope to get to know some of my fellow numismatists
in the greater Washington, D.C. area.  It was great fun to have a bunch
of folks over for a visit during the 2004 ANA convention.  Maybe we
could have a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly relocated Homren
Numismatic Library. -Editor]
