Nick Graver was curious about whether the car dealer who advertised in Coin World offering a Pontiac in exchange for coins was ever taken up on the offer. Dick Johnson writes:
I don't know if he obtained any small date cents -- rolls or bags -- from this ad. As Beth Deisher mentioned in her article his was not the highest offer in that issue and it was a very competitive time for buyers.
Fred Schwan writes:
A Gentle Madness is a great book. You likely have no argument there. Now, for the controversial part. In my opinion it IS a numismatic book. How is that, you say? The book describes the collecting sickness or genetic trait. I am afflicted. I see myself in the book. On top of that we have a problem with numismatic books!
