BEISTLE LEATHERBOUND COPY INFORMATION SOUGHT

Bill Bugert, Editor of The E-Gobrecht newsletter writes in the latest
issue (Volume 3, Issue 3, March 2007):

"I am conducting extensive research on the life and interests of
Martin Luther Beistle, the author of the 1929 reference on the half
dollar book entitled 'A Register of Half Dollar Die Varieties and Sub–
Varieties'. I have determined that, along with hard green cloth editions,
he printed 135 special edition copies of his book. These were individually
numbered with a special soft leather binding with gold edge pages.

"I am trying to account for the special leather bound editions. I do
know that Copy #1 was given to Col E. H. Green and that copy #4 currently
resides with MLB’s family. Does any reader have a copy or know who has
a copy of his special leather bound book? Please email me at
wb8cpy@arrl.net. Thanks!"

[My copy of the deluxe leatherbound Beistle is right next to me on
a shelf.  It is copy #122 of the edition of 135.  -Editor]
