  1. I was reading some interesting pieces about Most Interesting past collections a few minutes ago & it disappeared.Could you help me find it. Was beginning to look at some pretty paper money in your Vincent Collection, July 13, 2008. In truth, the other day I listened to Mr Stacks video about Anon Carter’s collection. About 5 or 6 yrs. ago I carried on an e-mail with Mr Bowere’s. Amon was a friend of our familiy, got my grandfarher start collecting in early “50’s, bring me a bag of change evry few days & I promise , in those days I would find 30 to 40 keepers at least which lasted until about ’64 when the bankers started figuring it out. My Dad & Amon grew up together & I told him a story of one Sunday morning , Dad & I met him at his office before they went to play golf & got to see some coins. He let me hold his 1804 dollar. I was about 10 or 12 but knew what it was. But it was so nice of Mr Boweres to take the time out of his schedule to advize me on many things over about 5 e-mails..
    I still collect, even have bought some greek coins from you, Phillipll & Akexander of which I knew nothing about.
    But, sorry this took so long but could you help me find the list of past sales or wjere to look?
    Would appreciate it.
    Sincerely,, L.H. McDaniel,lll
