Two numismatic literature dealers are out sick and unable to attend the upcoming ANA convention as planned. Get well soon! I also understand that Charlie Davis will not have a table at this year's show either, putting three numismatic literature dealers on the sideline for the convention. -Editor
I have come down with pneumonia, and as a result will be unable to attend this week’s ANA Convention. I had really been looking forward to this year’s show, and it’s a big disappointment to have to miss it. I had been planning on bringing a small, but select, group of material with me to sell out of my briefcase.
A 6-page mini-catalogue ("The Briefcase") had been written, describing those items I’d have with me. That catalogue is now posted in Word and PDF format on the David F. Fanning Numismatic Literature Web site at www.fanningbooks.com
, and the items are available for sale on a first-come, first-served basis.
Highlights include some very rare early Mint Reports in folio, Dr. Benjamin Rush’s eulogy of David Rittenhouse, and some British government documents relating to counterfeit coppers. Don’t delay in ordering — though please understand that there will be some delay in mailing. Thanks!
Yesterday morning dealer John H. Burns called me to cancel his planned E-Sylum ANA announcement; he too is out sick and unable to travel to Los Angeles. We wish our best to Dave and John, and hope both are back on their feet soon. Be well everyone, and enjoy the show. -Editor
