FRED REED VISITS NEWMAN MONEY MUSEUM

Fred Reed writes: "Last Saturday during the recent St. Louis paper
money show, Dave Kranz of Bank Note Reporter and I were fortunate to
visit the new Eric Newman Money Museum, fortunate not only for the
chance to view the wonderful displays but because Eric, his wife
Evelyn, and Ed Rochette were present.  Eric was a gracious host, and
his years of scholarship infuse the highly literate displays.  The
thing that most struck me was Eric's catholic (i.e. universal)
perspective on money and things numismatic.  Eric is able to focus
a great variety of items across eras and geography.  The topical
displays were interesting, splendidly presented, and wonderfully
crafted to appeal to the scholar, the novice, and the general
public alike.

It was wonderful to watch Eric take a personal interest in visitors
as they came and went and wryly expound on the various topics
presented. I highly recommend that any E-Sylum reader avail himself
of this wonderful FREE facility, even if he/she isn't so fortunate
to have the namesakes of the two newest money museums on hand as a
bonus. And call ahead to arrange research in Eric's formidable
library. You will be glad that you did!"
