May/June print issue of Paper Money delayed

Due to an unfortunate cyberattack, our printer for Paper Money has had to close all their plants in the U.S. They are working hard to get them back up and running, but this means the May/June issue will be delayed. They are making tremendous progress but at this time a date for full resumption of printing is not known. 

The on-line version will be posted on our website this week. 

Feel free to contact me for any questions.  Benny Bolin, smcbb@sbcglobal.net
