HISTORIANS AND NUMISMATICS 

   An article by Sterling A. Rachootin, "Points to Ponder", in 
   the Spring 2001 issue of the Civil War Token Society Journal, 
   laments that "history books fail to give Civil War tokens due 
   credit and their rightful place in history". 

   You can say that again, replacing "Civil War Tokens" with 
   the more general "numismatic items."  While there have been 
   some historians who were aware of numismatics, very few 
   history books (except perhaps those on the ancient world) 
   really address coins, paper money, or tokens in any meaningful 
   way.  How can we numismatic researchers help ignite interest 
   in our subject among general historians?
