IN MEMORIAM: MILTON R. FRIEDBERG

John and Nancy Wilson of Ocala, FL write: "We were saddened
to hear from Benny Bolin of the passing of our friend Milton
R. Friedberg.  He passed away on February 8th, with his wife
JoAnne at his side.  Milton R. Friedberg was one of the greatest
collectors of U. S. Postage and Fractional Currency that ever
lived.  He was a founding member of the Fractional Currency
Collectors Board and author of 'The Encyclopedia of United States
Fractional & Postal Currency' published in 1978.

"He wrote many articles not only on fractional currency but
also related items.  He was a prolific exhibitor, winning many
awards with his fractional currency exhibits.  Milt's complete
collection of U. S. Postage and Fractional Currency and many
other related rarities were sold by Currency Auctions of America,
Inc. on January 10, 1997.

"Before becoming ill some years back, Milt and his wife JoAnne
rarely missed a paper money show.  His enthusiasm and love of
fractional currency inspired many dealers and collectors
including ourselves.  He will be missed by his many friends
throughout the hobby, and his memory will live on forever.
Our deepest sympathies to his wife JoAnne and the Friedberg
family."
