The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 8, February 19, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are J. C. Zellner, David Rubino,
And Leon Majors.  Welcome aboard!  We now have 863 subscribers.

Although we open on a sad note with news of the loss of a
familiar figure in numismatic literature sales, this issue
also includes what is (to me at least) an exciting announcement
about the online E-Sylum archive on the NBS web site.

We have some more comments (and jokes) about the 2006 Winter
Olympic medals, and an interesting item about a Forbes reporter's
visit to the inner sanctum of a prominent coin club.  Also,
proving that politicians will use any excuse to pick a fight,
we have a story about how a magic trick involving a flaming
banknote ignited a controversy.

Which private company entered the banknote printing business
in 1860 by producing notes for Mauritius?  Read on to find out.

And who can tell us about "the mysterious Dr. Ken L. Rosenbaum"
and his connection to numismatic literature?  That answer is
NOT here, but this time we'll see who's been reading their
literature auction catalogs.  Have a great week, everyone.
