MEHL'S KICKING WIFE'S PROTEST REFERENCE LOCATED

John Merz writes: "The "Kicking Wife's Protest" appeared in Volume
10, Number 3-4, March-April 1919 of Mehl's Numismatic Monthly."

Alan V. Weinberg adds: "I enjoyed the Mehl segment about the "Kicking
Wife". The husband was clearly at fault.

I spend a fair amount of money on rare coins, tokens and medals.
For decades, I have been laying my latest acquisition - when significant
and aesthetically pleasing, like a gold medal or a mint Massachusetts
silver piece - on a velvet tray and showing it to my wife, allowing
her to lift and handle the item. And I tell her what I paid.

When I receive an auction catalogue with something special in it
that interests me, I show her the catalogue and point out and discuss
the item and its significance and value.

She's never complained and only brings up "How much did you just pay
for ...?"  when I express "concern" over  what she just paid for another
pair of shoes, a purse or a designer outfit. That shuts me up right
away.  We've just passed our 30th Anniversary so I guess I'm doing
something right."
