HOWARD BERLIN VISITS NUMISMATIC MUSEUMS IN GERMANY

E-mailing from Berlin on Monday, Howard Berlin writes: "Today I had a
tour of the renovated DHM (German Historical Museum) by Dr. Michael
Kunzel. Some of their collection of coins, medals, and banknotes are
integrated into the displays -- in this case, the permanent exhibit
of German history.

"Also, the recently reopened Bodemuseum is fantastic. There is a library
of approximately 20,000 volumes open to the public in the lower level.
The director of the "Muenzkabinett," Prof. Dr. Bern Kluge was a gracious
host and showed me around the museum's permanent exhibit of coins
covering about 72 cases in four rooms. About 4,000 coins of the museum's
approximately half million are on display. Some are on loan to the
Pergamon Museum next door on Museum Island. There is also a temporary
exhibit of holdings received since 1990.

"Most of the legends and texts are in German, which I have don't have
much of a problem with, but I think there is a multi-lingual audio tape
guide for rent. There are other things of art besides coins at the Bode,
but my interests were obviously the coins."
