I've completed the catalog portion of my new book on coin albums published by the Coin & Currency Institute, Inc. These include the
Library of Coins and the Treasury of Coins.
At this stage I'm writing the narrative portion of my book. I'm looking for photographs, literature and reminiscences of the Friedbergs,
their publishing and their franchising of retail coin shops and departments around the country. I imagine many readers recall the Friedbergs and
their employees, as well as perhaps having sold coins to them. If anyone has advertisements or photographs of a department store coin department
stocked by the Friedbergs these would be particularly welcome.
