Howard A. Daniel III forwarded this note mentioning a new book on WWII Paper Money by Harold Kroll. Thanks!
For the past six years, I have attended MPC Fest in Port Clinton, OH. On May 2, I drove onto I-495 (DC Beltway) at about 4AM and drove off of I-80/90 Port Clinton exit at 11 AM and then to the Holiday Inn Express, which is near the corner of Routes 2 and 53 and on the road to Catawaba Island.
The usual early birds were there and I volunteered to help get things out of storage and set up. It was not too difficult and I needed the exercise. That evening, we had dinner at the Jolly Roger Restaurant, which has tasty perch and walleye sandwiches and dinners with the great local bottled ICS Root Beer.
Thursday, I spent most of the day in my room working on my Cambodia catalog. The bourse was on Friday and several sellers had military numismatic and related references. I did not buy any books but I did find three pieces of Southeast Asian paper money.
Saturday is the most active day and one of two new catalogs were announced. The first was WWII Paper Money and Financial Instruments of Nazi Germany by Harold Kroll. Over 700 full color images fill the 64 informative pages of this new reference catalog listing paper monies and financial documents issued throughout the Nazi war time period, 1932-1945. The retail price is $25. plus $3.postage. International postage is plus $10. Contact Harold at firstname.lastname@example.org for quantity pricing.
Sunday was auction and lottery day and I won a donated copy of the new catalog! I stayed around for about half of the auction but there were really no lots in it for me. Many donations and auction profits sponsor up to four people to the ANA Summer Seminars. It is a great way to get some collectors additional numismatic knowledge and to support the ANA.
If you want to attend MPC Fest XIV, contact Fred Schwan at FredSchwan@Yahoo.com; and it you want to receive the emailed MPC Gram, contact Roger Urce at email@example.com.
