NEW RESEARCH ON THE FRANKLIN MINT

Katie Jaeger writes: "Last week's E-Sylum carried the story of the
recent sale of the Franklin Mint.  I wanted to let everyone know
that the Coin World issue of Nov. 6, 2006 carries the first half of
my two-part article on the "glory days" of the Franklin Mint, when
medals, casino tokens and coins of the realm were its primary business,
from 1964-1980.

Joe Segel and the late Chuck Andes were at the helm in those days,
and I had the privilege of interviewing both of them in September
2005, while gathering information for a book.  Later Mr. Segel lent
me his entire Franklin Mint archive, and I built my article from the
interviews and from his published and unpublished materials.  I got
to know both men a little bit through my subsequent correspondence
with them, and I have to say, I took a hearty liking to both of them,
and was as shocked as everyone else by the news of Mr. Andes death
in August.

I've managed to amass quite a bit of information on the Franklin
Mint, if anyone has specific questions, feel free to ask."
