The E-Sylum:  Volume 2, Number 41, October 10, 1999, Article 2

PUBLICATION NOTES  

   The 1997 Coinage of the Americas Conference proceedings 
   have been published by the ANS -  "The Medal in America, 
   Volume 2" .   The book has a marvelous selection of papers 
   on the topic, leading off with John W. Adams'  "The Peace 
   Medals of George III",  

   The November 1999 issue of COINage magazine has an 
   extensive article on "The Great Assay Bar Debate" by Tom 
   DeLorey, along with Part II of Richard G. Doty's article on 
   "The Great Seal and American Numismatics".   Great, great!  

   The October 11, 1999 issue of COIN WORLD contains 
   Part One of William T. Gibbs' article on John Leonard 
   Riddell, "scientist, physician, professor of chemistry, and 
   melter and refiner at the New Orleans Mint."   One little- 
   known source of information for the article is a rare pamphlet 
   on the New Orleans Mint published by Riddell in 1845. 
   Eric P. Newman discovered the pamphlet and reprinted it 
   in the April 1968 issue of The Numismatist.
