> Hi,
> I'm proud to announce that the CPF Corvair 50th Anniversary Corvair Coins

> I'm sorry if any of you wanted a coin but didn't quite get your order in,

> your coin will be mailed and postmarked from Ypsilanti, Michigan next 
> Friday on October 2nd. That's exactly fifty years ago to the day since the

> at Chevy dealers everywhere.
> The coins are the 50th Anniversary commemorative issued by the Corvair 
> Preservation Foundation, and will be mailed from the Ypsilanti Automotive 
> Heritage Collection. That's where the CPF maintains its Corvair Museum. 
> Ypsi is also the home of Chevy's Willow Run assembly plant, where most 
> Corvairs were built and the rightful home of the Corvair.
> The US Postal Service will be postmarking the coin mailing boxes right at 
> the Museum, using a "Pictorial Postmark" specially designed by us for the
