NEW JERSEY COIN DEALER BILL 'BROWNIE' BROWN

Regarding last week's query from Joe McCarthy about
a dealer named  'Brownie' whom he met in New Jersey
along the Delaware, an E-Sylum reader writes: "Years
ago there was a  dealer whose last name was Brown.  I
believe his first name was Bill, but some people called
him 'Brownie'.  He had a shop in Lambertville, NJ, which
is on the Delaware River across from New Hope, PA.

"We met at his shop during the 1970's.  He collected currency
items local to that area, which is why I wanted to see him.
Since he was probably in his 60's at the time, I would assume
he's probably deceased by now.

"Today, affluent couples from the suburbs of NY or Philadelphia
take weekend trips to Lambertville and New Hope to go antiquing,
stay in a Bed and Breakfast, and eat at one of the many fine
restaurants in the area.  In the old days, the area didn't have
the lodging and dining infrastructure it has today, but I believe
it has been a focal point for antiques for many years."
