Last week Howard Daniel recounted his tribulations with the printer of his upcoming Socialist Republic of Việt Nam Coins and Currency catalog. With this week's update it looks like things may be back on track.My people in Việt Nam have negotiated a lower price for the total cost of my Socialist Republic of Việt Nam Coins and Currency catalog. I wanted to go with another printer but the person who recommended the printer is an important numismatist and he would lose a great amount of "face" if I went elsewhere. This numismatist is also involved in the creation of the first numismatic society in Việt Nam, so I will bite the bullet a little to have his catalog printed at a little higher expense and the situation in Việt Nam will calm down.
The printer also lost some face in Việt Nam when I went public with the scam and they came to the table to talk of a solution. They now know I'm not a pliable rich foreigner who will pay any price for my catalog. And I could have two more catalogs ready next year and the printer wants this business too, so they are willing to be much more cooperative. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the deal stays together.
