All of John’s possessions have been sold and checks were issued in December to retire his debts. This was no small endeavor, as many of you know. It came to be with a lot of help from the numismatic community.

The final items were sold at the recent PAN Fall Coin show this past October. The liquidation went very well. There was a lot of enthusiasm to view and buy the large variety of material that John collected.

There are some final papers to be filed with the court over the next couple of months to officially close out the estate. To everyone that helped or bought some of the items, please accept our thanks.

As someone who's seen the Before and After of John's townhouse and multiple storage lockers, I know firsthand what a Herculean task Pat and his helpers faced. He mobilized an army and saw the battle through to the end. He deserves a huge thank you from all of us in the numismatic literature community. Many thanks also to everyone who donated to the John H. Burns Memorial Fund, which helped Pat defray many of the up-front costs of administering the estate and final arrangements. -Editor
