The E-Sylum: Volume 4, Number 2, January 14, 2001, Article 6


David Cassel writes:

"The FUN Show, 2001, was the first coin show that I attended after the publication of my book, "United States Pattern Postage Currency Coins." While most of the copies available were subscribed to pre-publication a few months earlier, several more sold post-publication. When I attended the FUN show, I took the six remaining unsold copies along with me in hopes of selling them out. After the first few hours on Friday, January 5th, not a single copy remained.

No reprints or republications are anticipated. Hopefully in a few years, I will publish a second edition with expanded information. This is already in progress.

I am not sure if it would be proper to reveal who bought each numbered copy. But I can tell you that from the commercial side, most of the major pattern dealers, P.C.G.S., N.G.C., & SEGS grading services, the ANA and ANS Library bought my book From the collector side, as you might expect, the members of our society, USPATTERNS.COM accounted for large numbers, but also several of the FCCB (Fractional Currency Collectors Board) and several NBS members subscribed. There were a few foreign coin dealers that also accounted for a few copies.

Where would any of us be without research? I wish to thank all who purchased my book for their support."
