In response to the story about the double-printed article, Pete Smith writes:
"I was going to submit something about Brad Karoleff's column in Coin World but you got there first. My copy also has his column printed twice. I wonder if that represents a new type of literature error and if that issue will become a collector's item."
With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Ken Bressett writes:
"We have all been worried about the Y2K threat, and now it is evident that the worst has happened. Two Brad Karoleffs is more than anyone should have to endure. Is it possible that this is a sign of the beginning of the end of the world? Or has it happened and this is our punishment for past numismatic sins!?"
William T. Gibbs, COIN World News Editor writes:
"Brad's column appeared twice due to a computer-generated production error (completely unrelated to Y2K, I hasten to add). Brad's second column replaced Gerald Tebben's column, which we are running in the Jan. 24 issue. Jerry Tebben took the mistake well. He's an editor at the Columbus Dispatch, so he understands how these things happen."
