He is pictured here 50 years apart, seven and 57. Do you think he is holding the same Nautilus? Since moving to Florida, he has invited shell collectors to view his collection. He also is active on Social Media, answering a variety of questions regarding shells. He is sharing the column he writes for a local shell club, “Shell of the Month.” You can find them on his page Worldwide Seashells: Battman’s Collection. watch this page for upcoming albums of his collection.
