LEATHERBOUND 2007-DATED REDBOOK SELLS OUT

Another Whitman production, the annual Guide Book of United States
Coins, has sold out its deluxe edition.  Numismatic news reported
in the September 19 issue (p38) that the leatherbound 2007-dated
60th anniversary edition has sold out.

I asked Dennis Tucker of Whitman for some more information on the
book.  He writes: "Yes, the leatherbound 2007 Limited Edition Red
Book is sold out. We printed 3,000 copies, and each was autographed
by longtime editor Kenneth Bressett. The book follows the same
format as other recent Limited Editions: larger trim, leather binding,
gilt-edged pages, gold-stamped cover. Beyond that, this year's
Limited Edition featured an exclusive illustrated history and tribute
to Ken Bressett and the Red Book's original author, R.S. Yeoman,
including a specially commissioned dual portrait by Chuck Daughtrey.
This tribute was part of our 60th-anniversary celebrations honoring
Ken and the Red Book.

Also in connection with that anniversary, Whitman is offering an
antique-finish, nickel-silver commemorative medallion --- the first
we've issued in some time. Its mintage was limited to 500 (individually
numbered), and each medal is encapsulated by ANACS in a special slab
and packaging. The medal features the Daughtrey dual portrait of Yeoman
and Bressett. About 150 of the 500 were reserved for Red Book
contributors, and the remaining 350 were offered at the World's
Fair of Money in August. We still have some left, and Red Book
collectors can order online, or, if they're still available, buy
one at the Atlanta Show in early October."
