A NOTE FROM MIKE ELLIS
"To All NBS Members and interested parties, I want to thank
NBS for bestowing upon me the honor of speaking at your
recent meeting held at the annual FUN Show in Orlando, FL.
I did so at the invitation of my good friend Col. Bill Murray,
who needs no introduction from me! The talk, "The
Proliferation of Error and Variety Books in the Hobby Over
the Past Ten Years", was, in my humble opinion, a very
significant one and one which I have wanted to present for
some time. I thank you for the opportunity!
Though the meeting would probably have been better attended
at an ANA Annual Convention, those persons who did attend
were all impressive contributors to the numismatic community!
I consider my talk a great success more so because of the
preliminary research of Bill Murray who presented his findings
prior to my speaking and for the superb contributions from
Mark Borckardt, Senior Numismatist of Bowers and Merena
Galleries. Mark, as you no doubt know, has made and is
making his own very significant contributions to the hobby.
Additionally, others in the room asked solid questions.
contributing to the overall effectiveness of my talk. I thank
all of them as well. I was so humbled by the experience that I
would like to do it again sometime when I can be even better
Again, thank you for the opportunity and for the fond memory
of it being a very pleasant experience.
Sincerely, Mike Ellis, Past President of CONECA, Editor of
Errorscope and Editor of The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare
Die Varieties, Fourth Edition, Volume I."
