Bob Lyall passed along the following information about Paul Dawson of Spink in London. He wrote this last Monday. As of this afternoon there was no additional news to report. We're very sorry to hear the news, and are hoping for the best.
Paul Dawson, director of Spink and long time highly respected coin dealer had a very serious car accident on Thursday night. He hit a lorry on the M1 motorway and is in hospital in a most serious way. His partner who was passenger, has died.
Brian Dawson (Paul's dad) phoned me Monday morning and is content to have the following information put out amongst the numismatic fraternity:
Paul is alive but on life support and unconscious. His spinal cord may or may not be OK. The most senior surgeon's words were "it is down to time and in the hands of the Gods". He has had brain surgery.
Paul is in the best possible hospital for the situation, specialising in just this sort of problem.
