ALL HAIL THE NUMISMATIC EDITORS

[Ray Williams of the Colonial Coin Collectors Club posted
the following note this week on the Yahoo colonial coins
group, following a discussion of new books on U.S. Colonial
numismatics.  I'd like to second his motion - this group of
editors has done an absolutely marvelous job of publishing
top-notch research on this area.  -Editor]

The quality of our reference material is due both to the
authors AND the editors. Although we approach authors,
congratulate them, get them to autograph our books... we
need to appreciate the contribution of the editors. These
are not guys that just sit down and check for spelling and
punctuation mistakes - they review content and all aspects
of publications. So I would like to thank some editors
publicly:

Mike Hodder, Angel Pietri and Dan Freidus, for being past
editors of the C4 Newsletter which brought a small group
of colonial enthusiasts into the organization we have today.
The C4N has gradually grown to what it is today, under
your direction!

Syd Martin and Roger Siboni, current editor and associate
editor of the C4 Newsletter. I don't have the words to
describe the product that we've all been receiving in our
mail boxes - you all receive it and I'll just let it speak
for itself. Thank them when you see them!

Al Hoch, Jim Spilman and Phil Mossman, for being past editors
of the Colonial Newsletter (CNL). CNL has been the platform
for colonial numismatic information since the 1960s. A
complete set of CNL, either in paper or on CD, is a prerequisite
for any colonial numismatic library, placed right next to
your Crosby.

Gary Trudgen is the current editor of CNL, which is being
published three times a year by the American Numismatic Society.
I have had the pleasure to work with Gary (and many on this page)
and I can say that he puts 100% inhis work. Gary's enthusiasm
and dedication are evident in every issue!

Lastly, we have Lou Jordan, Phil Mossman, Jim Rosen and Gary
Trudgen - the editors who worked on C4 publications, including
Syd's Wood's Hibernia book. They are currently editing another
work in progress. These guys make it happen! I could go through
several pages about what they do, but the quality of the books
C4 publishes would not be what it is without these guys.

Now there are other people in the hobby that deserve recognition,
such as Dave Bowers, Ken Bressett and many others, but I just
wanted to address the people involved with C4 and CNL today.
I'm always scared that I missed someone, so if I have, please
forgive me. The next time you're at a C4 Convention and get
a book autographed, look around, find the editors and ask
them to autograph it too.

My personal thank you to all the editors, past and present,
that work so hard! You guys make it happen!!! You guys ROCK!!!
