In April Frank Draskovic of the Southern California Orders & Medals Society made a nice offer to E-Sylum readers. Some folks have taken them up
on it, and Frank asked me to remind everyone the offer still stands. -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
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 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.

Thanks again to Frank, OMSA and SCOMS for their generosity. As I noted before, it's a professionally done affair and I encourage anyone with an interest
or just numismatic curiosity in general to request a copy and check it out. -Editor
