REVIEW: BARKER'S HISTORICAL CASH COINS OF VIETNAM

Howard A. Daniel III writes: "I read Craig Greenbaum's
comments about Dr. Allan Barker's book, The Historical
Cash Coins of Viet Nam, with much interest.  Craig is a
fairly new friend but Allan and I are old friends who
have discussed numismatics well into the night and over
many a meal.  Not only is the color photography and the
printing excellent, but everyone can match their authentic
coins to something in his book.  And the range of values
for each coin, based on the assigned rarity, is the first
time everyone can value every Vietnamese cash coin from
the tenth century to 1945!  This book is so well done I
have a difficult time finding the right words to praise
it.  Even the Vietnamese in Viet Nam are shocked with the
excellence of it.  Please go to Craig's website at
coinsofvietnam to see what we
are writing about.  You will not be disappointed.

P.S.  Congratulations to the editor of The E-Sylum
because his Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl!!!!"

[I refrained from injecting "Go Steelers" comments in
The E-Sylum throughout the playoff season, but it was a
great team this year and I'm glad they finally got the
"One for the Thumb" that has eluded them since the dynasty
years of the 70s.  For our overseas readers, the phrase
refers to the team's Super Bowl rings. Having won four of
them (one for each finger), the rallying cry became "One
for the Thumb!"  I edited The E-Sylum in between cheers
while watching the big game last week.  -Editor]
