We are so proud to have obtained the large collection of Herb Obodda, lifelong dealer and friend. His collection of several thousand specimens contains large suites from his two favorite collecting interests: antique European classics; and minerals of Afghanistan and Pakistan, where he was the first dealer to export specimens to the West. We have been long overdue in bringing parts of this large collection to the Internet due to remodel of the website. This summer will see no less than 500 specimens posted online, as we continue to clean and prep pieces from the collection. For more on Herb, please see the Mineralogical Record site http://www.minrec.org/labels.asp?colid=1182 or read the article written by John White that appeared in the July-August 2008 issue of The Mineralogical Record (volume 39).
