The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 41, October 8, 2000, Article 11

FAVORITE TYPOS 

   The topic of Snowden brings to mind your editor's all-time 
   favorite typo in a numismatic book.  The following is from 
   Richard Snow's "Flying Eagle & Indian Cents", 1992, p8: 

   "In late 1856 the new small nickel cent was being pushed 
   through Congress by Snowmen." 

   A runner-up is referenced in lot 647 of the current Charles 
   Davis sale: "Comprehensive Guide to American Colonial 
   Coinage.  It's {sic} Origins, History and Value," 1976, 
   Sanford Durst.  The lot description notes "What else can you 
   say about a book that has a typographical (or grammatical?) 
   error in its title."
