I'm skeptical.  "Coincidence" is such a modern term that I have to wonder what word the quote is translating.

I'm curious: how do the period touches in Atlas Shrugged strike a first-time reader in the twenty-first century?  When I first read the book in the early 60s they were a bit of distraction, as if the story were trying to be contemporary but not quite succeeding.  Their effect must be quite different today.
