The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 3, January 15, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Amber N. Thompson of the
American Numismatic Association library (courtesy of Jane
Colvard), Scott DeGuilo, Harry Rescigno and Mark Rush.
But wait - there's more!  From the Montgomery County Coin
Club (meeting in Silver Spring, MD) are Bob Eisemann, David
Aaron, Wayne Mitchell, Jerold Roschwalb, Wayne Wilcox,
Stanley Olesh, Steve Lokey, Jack Schadegg, Scott Barman,
Andrew Luck, Donald McKee, Ken Huff, Pat Hollaway.  Welcome
aboard!  We now have 851 subscribers.

I had the pleasure of attending the Montgomery County Coin
Club meeting on Tuesday, where I passed around a signup
sheet for The E-Sylum.  I came at the invitation of Roger
Burdette, who gave a wonderful presentation based on his
research for his books on the Renaissance of American Coinage.
His talk focused on the creation of the Standing Liberty
Quarter and Peace Dollar.

Referring to last week's technical tribulations with my
hotel's wireless network, David Palmer writes: "I want to
thank you for taking the time and trouble you did to get
this issue out to us! Sitting in the car? You will do
whatever you need to, won't you?"

Well, I was able to transfer to another room with a
decent wireless connection, so we're back in business.
In this issue I get caught up with a couple topics that
had to slip from the last issue, including Kevin Flynn's
new book on the 1894-S Dime, and Karl Moulton's new price
list.

The U.S. Mint has been busy - the new 2006 Nickels and
Nevada Quarters are on the way.  Also back in the news are
some subjects we've touched on before: the Jacob Perkins mint
building in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and the nearby trial
of the roofers who discovered a hoard of old U.S. currency.
And if you ever wondered about whether you could ever get a
coin back out of a Lucite toilet seat (and even if you haven't)
... stay tuned.
