MELVIN REITER, 1925-2010

David Gladfelter submitted this note about token author and researcher Melvin Reiter. -Editor

Melvin Reiter has died. He was a retired architect, collector of dairy tokens and active in the Michigan Token and Medal Society (to which memorial contributions may be sent).

His magnum opus (and magnum it is) is his 1,204 page "Catalog of Dairy or Milk Tokens and Related Exonumia" published by Michigan Exonumia Publishers (Paul Cunningham), latest edition of which I am aware is 2002.

The first edition was in 1976 and consisted of only 51 pages in a comb binder. For covers he used recycled Michigan state agency report covers turned backwards. A tree saver. I corresponded with Melvin over the years but never met him.
