Preserving Historical Names
Skip Lane writes:
I missed the original article regarding the hyphen in New-York but after reading this one I am reminded that several Hard Times Tokens use the hyphen; some with the full spelling, NEW-YORK, some as N-YORK and some as N-Y. I always figured it was just artistic license, I never knew that that was the way it was originally spelled.

I enjoyed Dick Johnson's contribution about retention of the hyphen in historical names. I agree with Louise Mirrer's defense of the hyphen in the name of the New-York Historical Society. My local coin club is in St. Mary's County, Maryland, but our club name, St. Marie's Coin Club, preserves the county's historical name. It is a small thing, but we take great pride in it.

Michael Annis Contact Information
Dick Doty writes:
A number of our folks will know Michael Annis, a dealer in ancient coins, foreign coins, antiquities, a number of other things, a helpful gent out of Michigan who worked the Whitman show and the ANA conventions. Mike came down with Lou Gehrig's disease, and it's terminal. He's got a few weeks to live at the most, and this past Thursday he moved into the hospice where he'll die. I think it's better to be piped aboard with people wishing you well and thinking good thoughts than not knowing.
I asked Dick to confirm with Mike that it's OK to publish this information, and Mike would be happy to hear from his old numismatic friends. Here is his contact information.
FAIRFAX, BUILDING 1
1900 NORTH PROSPECT ROAD
Our thoughts go out to Mike and his family in this difficult time. Please do send him your wishes.
