Letter to Columbia Coin about the campaign to get the store not to sell the Krugerrand, a South African gold coin. The letter outlines the history of the campaign against the Krugerrand and Columbia Coin. The letter notes the recent ban on the importation of the Krugerrand and thus demonstrations at the store will cease. The letter is by Avel Gordly of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) but Portlanders Organized for Southern African Freedom, which operated from the AFSC office, was a separate organization.
