SEABY ANA HONOR
Regarding the discussion of U.S. impressions of Seaby and
Spink, Henry Bergos writes: "Sorry to be late, but it seems
to be my middle name. Spink was the "patrician" company.
They didn't welcome walk in traffic and were "less than
hospitable". Seaby had a retail area and were always cordial.
Mr. Seaby, Sr. came here for the ANA convention in 1976.
He was honored at the banquet. It was HORRIBLE. He
"wasn't young" and couldn't find his way to the front. All
were embarrassed by this and didn't know what to do. Finally
someone got up and lead him by the elbow to the front to
get his award from Abe Kosoff. If I remember it right it was
his 50 year membership award."
