I rarely post here but I will add this:
I spent considerable time with Andy earlier this year at the SOS and he appeared to be in good health. I was shocked when I found out a long time friend and fellow collector had passed so quickly. My understanding is that Pancreatic Cancer was the culprit. This disease is a sure and deadly killer. My sincere condolences to Andy's family.
Jim

Andy was a good friend and an avid collector of miniature daggers. Condolences to his family and we'll miss his humorous posts.
