MIKE KLIMAN AND ABE KOSOFF

Alan V. Weinberg writes:

Myron "Mike" Kliman of Laguna Niguel, accused and arrested for cutting his neighbor's hand with a knife over a pine needle dispute, is the one time son-in-law of legendary numismatic dealer Abe Kosoff and was married for quite a period to Abe's daughter Sonny Kliman. Both have since divorced and been re-married.

As indicated in an E-Sylum article some time back, Mike is one of the 4 or 5 remaining living American attendants to the 1954 Cairo King Farouk lot viewing and auction where he accompanied Abe and Sonny. I have seen a group photo of Abe and family at the sale.

Mike related to me the story of Abe whispering to Mike to examine an auction lot of $5 half eagles in the sale: "Shush, see this one? - it's a Moffat pioneer $5 gold piece".
