MICHAEL FEY ON LANGE'S COIN COLLECTING BOARDS BOOK

Michael S. Fey, Ph.D. writes: "In my opinion, Dave Lange's
coin boards (coincollectingboards.com) are one
of the most undervalued areas in numismatic collecting
today.  At the prices he currently asks for his stock, he
will never be able to maintain an inventory.  There's just
not enough of these around."

[Michael also forwarded a copy of his Letter to the Editor
of Numismatic News, Dave Harper.  The text is below.
-Editor]

I noted in the February 5th, 2008 issue of Numismatic News
where Dave Lange talked about my acquiring a rare 1935 Kent
"Liberty Head Nickel" coin board.  I thought it important
to follow-up with my rationale for acquiring this board to
your readers.

My intention for this rare coin board is to have it
attractively framed in an acid free mount with a UV
protective glass.  I am going to hang it in my office to
remind visitors just how collectors collected coins in the
past.  It should make a great conversation piece.   It is
my intention to preserve and treasure this piece of our
numismatic history as if it were one of my most prized
numismatic rarities.  In this manner, this coin board can
be passed down to future generations for their enjoyment
much in the same manner as numismatic literature, exonumia,
medals, tokens, coins and paper money currently pass.  I
would encourage both dealers and collectors in the numismatic
community to do the same, while this area of numismatic
history is still affordable.  Thank you Dave for a wonderful
coin board, and for a great book about coin collecting boards.
