THE POWER OF WRITING
Tom DeLorey writes: "I read with interest your note on the
passing of Frank Spadone. In the early 1960s, his error and
variety book (mistakes and retouched pictures notwithstanding)
led me deeply into the field of errors and varieties, which led
to my working for Coin World in the Collectors Clearinghouse
department, which led to my working for the ANA as an
authenticator, which led me to where I am today. All because
of one book. Such is the power of writing."
