Kosta Kovachev

Does anyone know what has become of burst collector Kosta Kovachev? He found and bought many bursts years ago but I never seem to hear of him in today's vintage market. Did he take those bursts to another planet or what? Where has he gone? Does anyone know Kosta personally?

He used to call me weekly looking for V's and Burst in the mid 90s. He got out of the Burst market in late 90s when Wall Street called in their markers. Haven't heard a peep from him since.

He called a few times, and even dropped by last year. I think he is working out of Dallas, although I didn't understand his business. Something to do with resort properties, I think.
He enjoyed looking at a Burst again ;)

His job brought him to Branson a few times, a resort area near me.
He might have flown to Dallas on business, and drove up here.
Or, I could just be
