    Highlight: In the December 1969 issue of the Spink Numismatic Circular 8 I was 'announced' as a new addition to the Book Department at Spink. Early in 1970, HL and I had discussed the merits of dealing in second-hand and out of print books on coins, and we agreed to expand into that area, since at the time very few booksellers dealt in such books. I subsequently combed the London book trade, and bought everything I could find, almost irrespective of price, and within a short time we had a few shelves of second-hand books. Coincidentally, we had started to receive extensive 'wants lists' of books from a major institutional library in the UK. Surprisingly, few of the books on those lists were on our shelves for sale, but that, I soon learnt, was the nature of bookselling. By the spring of 1970 we had

In order to distinguish the new piece readily from the 20-pfennig coin now in use the government has asked for designs with a perforation. Coins with a hole through the center are still in circulation in China and Japan, but their introduction was ob- jected to by some artists in Germany on the ground that the perforated coin belonged to a past age. In answer to this argument the Welt Spiegel pub- lishes the pictures of perforated

    Highlight: was reprinted by Spink's Numismatic Circular for November and December. As reprinted it makes it appear that Dr. Malcolm Storer, a son of the author, is "Presi- dent of the Boston Medical Library, the Massachusetts Historical Society and Harvard University.” We have no doubt Dr. Storer could gracefully fill the presidential chair of any of these institutions. But the statement is misleading, and we are only calling attention to it because both Drs. Storer are well known in medical and numismatic circles abroad, as well as in this country. The portion of the sentence as it appeared in The Numis- matist was as follows, the words in brackets being omitted in Spink's Circular : “* * * Dr. Malcolm Storer, President of the Boston [Numis- matic Society and Curator of the collections of the Boston
