NUMISMATIC AUTHOR HAL DUNN DIES

Duane H. Feisel writes: "It is with a heavy heart that I report
to you that Hal Dunn suddenly and unexpectedly passed away Thursday
morning, October 26.  His wife, Sharon, called to let me know of
this sad news and asked that I advise friends.  Burial services will
be held on Monday, October 30 beginning at 2:00PM at the First
Presbyterian Church in Elko.  A memorial service will be held on
Wednesday, November 1 beginning at 2:00PM at the First Presbyterian
Church in Carson City.

My own friendship with Hal goes back for more than 40 years.  We
made trips to Omaha together, and shared a bourse table at NTCA and
WESTS shows.  Hal always was a willing hand in providing assistance
to me for the auctions I conducted.  I worked extensively with Hal
on his great catalog of Western States good-for trade mirrors as well
as other projects.  In recent years I donít think a week went by that
we werenít on the telephone with one another, and we exchanged frequent
e-mail messages.  On occasion we visited the homes of one another.

Hal attended many of the ANA shows and was well known in numismatics.
He wrote numerous scholarly articles on a variety of topics, and was
involved in various aspects of cataloging tokens and other collectables.
Hal is also well known in the law enforcement community in Nevada.
We all will miss him greatly."

[Hal became an E-Sylum subscriber in May 2001 on the recommendation
of Bill Murray.  Here's his subscriber profile:

  Numismatic interests:  Carson City coins, Carson City Mint
  memorabilia, Nevada tokens and medals, Wyoming tokens.

  Numismatic literature:  I have authored three exonumia
  catalogs and numerous articles on Nevada and California
  exonumia.  I collect published material (numismatic and
  otherwise) on the Carson City Mint.

  I have been a coin collector for over 50 years and involved
  with exonumia since the mid-1960s.  Currently I am president
  of the National Token Collectors Association, past president
  of the Token and Medal Society, the ANA district delegate
  for Nevada, and an officer in our local coin club.
