HERITAGE SIGNATURE CURRENCY SALE CATALOG A WHOPPER

In the September 13 MPC Gram News Letter (Vol 7, no 1501) Editor
Fred Schwan writes: "The Heritage Signature Currency {sic} auction
catalog was a surprise from the beginning. It arrived in a priority
mail flat rate box. I could not figure out what that could possibly
be, but I did not expect it to be good news. I was certainly wrong
about that.

I believe that it is the largest and heaviest paper money auction
catalog ever produced and it might hold that record for a long time.
The American Bank Note Company archive sale certainly had more notes,
and there might have been an auction with more lots, but the catalog
- wow.

Based on size I thought it might have one of every national bank
note ever issued, but there was not a single note from Ottawa
Country, Ohio. I was both pleased and disappointed about that."

[The sale features 4,504 lots of paper currency.  The sale was
held September 13-15, 2006 in Long Beach, CA.  The catalog is
available online: catalog
