FRED LAKE ON HARRY X BOOSEL

Fred Lake writes:

I first met Harry in 1988 and visited him in Chicago when I was asked to pick up his "Redbook" collection and offer it for sale. You can see what I had offered in Function Associates Premier Sale of Numismatic Literature dated May 17,1989.

Harry took me to his basement and we dug around in old Army foot lockers to find the books. Harry said that he did have a First Edition, but we never did get to the last trunk which was buried under a ton or two of other stuff.

He was a very witty guy in a "dry" way and I fondly remember my visit with him.

I met Harry once, too. It was at an American Numismatic Association convention (I've forgotten which one). He and John Pittman were sitting with their wives chatting at a table in the refreshment area. John introduced me and we chatted for a few minutes. It was a pleasure to meet the author who undertook a pioneering study of the dizzying array of 1873 coinage types and varieties. What a challenge! -Editor
