BARRY JABLON AND RUSS SEARS

Barry Jablon writes: "I haven't written in a while because my tales
of managing coin departments in Baltimore and Philadelphia were limited
in terms of their appeal to the average collector and numismatic
researcher. However, they certainly paid dividends when I received
several E-mails from Russ Sears who saw my name on this site.

Way back in 1961, when I opened the coin department in Hutzler's
for the Friedbergs in Baltimore, I had occasion to hire two assistants
from within the store, one being Russ Sears. He was eighteen at the
time and was nice enough to talk about the impact I had on him insofar
as numismatics was concerned. The fact that he is still active in the
hobby means that his experience working with me and the Hutzler
coin department was a very positive one.

In the end, having such a positive influence on someone like Russ
kind of ranks up there with my 1913 liberty nickel story and my 1793
Liberty Cap cent story. Maybe, in thinking about it, it really ranks
above those other stories."

[Russ Sears' name is familiar to me - he has been active in the Civil
War Token Society, served as Vice President and President of the
Maryland Token and Maryland Society, and Editor of the Maryland TAMS
Journal.  -Editor]
