NEWMAN PORTAL ADDS FCCB NEWSLETTER

The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is the Fractional Currency Collectors Board Newsletter. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report. Thanks. -Editor

2014 Winter FCCB NEwsletter cover The Fractional Currency Collectors Board (FCCB) has contributed their newsletter for the years 1983-2014 to the Newman Portal. The inaugural issue deals with the usual housekeeping items (dues, club meeting logistics, etc.) but also includes the lifeblood of any specialty periodical – a new variety discovered, and a rare item appearing in the market. Production values parallel the rise of desktop publishing, and by the mid-1990s the newsletter boasts a well-illustrated professional appearance. Robert Kravitz also his contributed his reference on the subject, A Collector’s Guide to Postage & Fractional Currency, in addition to a series of Collector’s Guide updates and a number of fixed price lists. FCCB member Len Glazer contributed the auction sale catalogs and fixed price lists of his firm Fractional Currency, Inc. Newman Portal acknowledges Jerry Fochtman for coordinating this large addition to NNP, as well as Robert Kravtiz and Len Glazer for their related contributions.

1980 Glazer Fractional currency FPL cover

At Jerry's request I dug thru my library and located the Len Glazer fixed price lists. The 1980 one has a delightful cut-out cover which mimics a U.S. encased postage stamp, one of my collecting specialties. You can't duplicate that digitally. It's a great collectible and I wish I'd kept my copy in better shape. -Editor
