STEVEN TEMBY: AN AUSTRALIAN B. MAX MEHL?Dick Johnson writes:
If you can believe Australian coin dealer Steven Temby you can earn a "regular income" by searching for coins worth more than face value from coins still circulating Down Under. He just issued a press release to that effect. He directs Australians to his web site where he sells, for $77, an e-book that lists 31 coins he will buy. He will pay, for example, $200 for a $1 coin on that list. Or $100 for a certain 50-cent coin. Or $50 for a particular 20-cent coin.
Get coins in quantity from a bank, spend an hour or two each evening searching, and take the unwanted coins back to the bank, his publicity directs. "There are over 150,000,000 of these rare coins in circulation today."
Is he a reincarnated B. Max Mehl? At least Mehl gave you a book to read -- the Star Rare Coin Encyclopedia -- for a few dollars. How much did he offer for a 1913 Liberty Head nickel?
