Default Article on card restoration

Posted By: PASJD

I mentioned this at the end of the thread on the allegedly restored but slabbed Cobb, and for those interested in reading a 1996 article on restoration that may or may not be of concern today (although I would guess techniques if anything have improved with technology, not the reverse), I have attempted to upload it in pdf format to the following URL from which hopefully you can download it:
members.aol.com/pspa123/articles/restoration
I post this for informational purposes only and make no judgments about the extent to which altered cards are being slabbed by the grading services.

I tried to save and open the page as an .htm document, but it didn't work. Is the url http://www.members.aol.com/pspa123/articles/restoration correct, or am I just missing something?

Thanks,

Max

You have the URL correct. It may be that a pdf file just won't work in this manner. If that is the case, I am happy to email it to people, just send me a request at spaeth@ix.netcom.com, but do me a favor and don't reply to the message containing the file because I only have a modem and it is a large file.

Just sent you an email...

I'd be interested in seeing the article and can host it on my website and post a link for those which have adobe acrobat reader installed to view it so you don't have to repeatedly sent out emails...

Email me when you get a chance,

Scott Mosley

Thanks to Peter for forwarding the article.

I've hosted it on my website at the following link:

[link removed]

Its over 2 meg so give it a little bit to download.

Note: Requires that you have adobe acrobat reader installed to be able to read the file.

big nail hole-- someone posted one in a type card thread--and don't care for the restored ones.

I remember thinking that when the article first came out--9 years ago.

Bill why if you know is the issue out of print? Do you simply mean they ran out of copies because so many people ordered one, or something else? Thanks.
