Frank Draskovic of the Southern California Orders & Medals Society has a nice offer for E-Sylum readers. -Editor
At the Orders & Medals Society of America (OMSA) website (www.omsa.org), you will find under the publications tab, this CD book* (description
below). It seems they made too many of these a few years back, so they were giving them away at last year's convention.
Orders, Decorations, and Medals of the French Overseas and the Post-Colonial Periods
By: Edward J. Emering.
From Algeria and Annam to Togo and Tunisia the author has opened the door to the fascinating world of French colonial medals. Over three hundred
and eighty color illustrations document and catalog the awards. Our first on CD!
I suggested, and OMSA agreed to, a joint effort with the Southern California Orders & Medals Society to offer these CDs gratis to readers of
numismatic publications to inform and entice collectors to consider this endlessly fascinating medallic specialty, which is far too little known in
American numismatic circles. Of course I thought of you and the E-sylum readership first.
We are offering the CD free for only the media mail (the ONLY shipping method I will use) postage & mailer cost of $3.00 each in cash only,
that amount to be remitted to me by USPS mail only (no checks, no credit cards). The Southern California Orders & Medals Society, i.e. me as
president, floor sweeper and chief schlepper, will fulfill delivery on a first come, first served basis. I have 27 CDs now. If OMSA has more in
storage, I'm sure they'll gladly supply me as needed.
I have no idea how many of your readers would be interested in such an offer, but just so I'm not bombarded with un-fillable requests, I ask
that anyone interested kindly email me first with their request (only one CD book per name and address & shipment to USA addresses only). I'll
then confirm availability by email and ship after the $3.00 cash payment is received. So that's it.

What a great offer! Thanks to Frank, OMSA and SCOMS for their generosity. I have a copy of the CD, and it's a professionally done affair. I
encourage anyone with an interest or just numismatic curiosity in general to request a copy and check it out. -Editor
