HARVEY STACK AND DAVE BOWERS, WEATHERMAN

Regarding the merger of Dave Bowers' company with Stack's, an E-Sylum
subscriber writes: "I was listening to New York's all-news radio station
WINS-AM today and heard a news item about the 1913 Liberty nickel that
is about to be auctioned in Orlando, FL on January 2, 2007.  Prior to
the auction, the nickel, which is purported to be worth $5 Million,
can be viewed at the West 57th Street gallery of the auction company.

The last part of this story consisted of the unmistakable voice of
Harvey Stack explaining why the nickel was so valuable. Two things went
through my head after hearing Harvey's voice:

1)  WINS has a meteorologist named Dave Bowers.
2)  Stacks is the firm that supposedly returned the Walton 1913 nickel
    to the collector's widow, asserting it was fake.

[The circumstances leading to the labeling of Walton's a fake are
discussed at length in the "Million Dollar Nickels" book by Montgomery,
Borchardt and Knight (see Chapter 8 "Disappearing Act").  Abe Kosoff
was among those also calling Walton's specimen a fake.  -Editor]
