ANOTHER NUMISMATIC POSTCARD SET REPORTED

A web site visitor writes: "I was reading an article in The E-Sylum
archive and recognized the red coin book that was mentioned. I have
a copy of this book; actually it was my grandfather's and he passed
it to my father and finally to me. It contains all 48 coin postcards
from different countries. In my book, there is only one (Russia)
that has the word "souvenir" stamped in blue ink on it.

I was really surprised that this is such a rare item. Since I have
the full set, I would be happy to provide the names of the countries
of all the cards if you are interested so that your reader could
find out which one he is missing."

[A link to the original E-Sylum article is below.  Dick Johnson was
the reader missing one of the cards.  I put Dick in contact with the
person.  I also put them in touch with David Gladfelter, who wrote
a wonderful article on these in our print journal, The Asylum.  His
article was titled "Coinage on Postcards: The Cambist's Glorious Last
Hurrah"
