QUERY: CHARLES JOHNSON BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SOUGHT

Michael Knight writes: "I am a British collector of books
relating to British tokens, and I am keen to find out as
much as I can about previous owners of the books that I
add to my library.  One recent acquisition was previously
owned by a American active in the 1960's, so I'm hoping
that readers of the E-Sylum may be able to help me out
with some information.

"The book in question is James Atkins 1889 work on 'Tokens
of the Possessions and Colonies of the British Empire'.  It
has the book label and stamp of 'Charles M Johnson 3521 Vista
St Long Beach 3 Calif'.   I know that he was an American
Numismatic Association governor in the 1960's, and his books
were offered by George Kolbe in the early 1980's, but does
anyone have any biographical information on him such as the
year he was born and died, when he joined the ANA, and what
he did for a living?  Also, was this book featured in a Kolbe
sale?  Any information would be much appreciated."
