HOWARD BERLIN'S WORLD NUMISMATIC MUSEUM TOUR

Howard Berlin adds: "Since my retirement from teaching electrical
engineering two years ago, I've been doing a lot of traveling.
Often I try to visit museums that have numismatic exhibits. I have
written one article for Coin World and have several others pending
about museums in Berlin, the Kadman Museum in Tel Aviv, etc.  I will
be in Rome in two weeks and will visit the Vatican stamp/coin museum
and the Italian Mint museum. Beyond next month my schedule currently
looks like this:

December 2006:
 St. Louis - Newman Money Museum
January 2007:
 London - Bank of England
 Oxford - Ashmolean Museum
 Cambridge - Fitzwilliam Museum
February 2007:
 Istanbul - Archeological Museum
 Athens - Athens Numismatic Museum, Alpha Bank Collection
March 2007: Ireland: nothing planned yet
April 2007: Jerusalem
Late 2007: Brussels, Dusseldorf, Cologne

These museum visits will be chronicled in a new magazine column
(with some photos) to begin in 2007. I welcome information from
E-Sylum subscribers on numismatic museum exhibits in those cities
where I haven't yet identified a suitable collection to visit.  If
there are none, then I'll just take in the usual tourist sights."

Regarding the Bode museum discussed last week, Howard adds: "I will
be in Berlin again next month. I have been by the Bode several times
in the past two years when it was closed for renovations. I will
check to see about a numismatic library as it is right next to the
Pergamon Museum which was displaying some of the Bode's collection
of ancient coins during the renovation."

Jorgen Somod writes: "Yes, the Bode Museum has a big library and it
is one of the most important coin collections in the world. I visited
the museum in 1977. It was fantastic. However, some of their books
may be missing as I was at the State Historical Museum in Moscow and
saw numismatic books with a rubberstamp from the museum in Berlin.
Many things happened in the years after 1945, when the collection
was deported to the Soviet Union and after some years went back to
Berlin - except some books."
