The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 12, March 19, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

We now have 866 subscribers.  Your Editor had nice evening
Wednesday at the American Numismatic Rarities auction in Baltimore.
At the invitation of Richard Jewell, a consignor to the sale, I
had dinner with Rich and his wife Fran, and was delighted to be
joined at our table by Q. David Bowers, John Pack and others from
the ANR staff.  I also got to talk briefly with John Kraljevich
and Doug Winter, who was busily bidding on coins all evening.
I don't get out much, but it's always nice to see our E-Sylum
subscribers in person once in a while.

Another interesting issue this week.   Leading off is a report
by John Kleeburg with some new information about Paul Franklin of
"Franklin Hoard" fame.  Next, George Fuld fills us in on his
famous visits to the Scovill Manufacturing Company.

Also in this issue, several readers discuss the pros and cons
of the loose-leaf format for numismatic publications, and Roger
Moore reviews a book with a great deal of information on Irish
numismatics.  For paper money collectors we have a few new items
relating to fancy serial numbers and fancy denominations: your
collection isn't complete without a billion dollar bill.  And
if you're just dying to be falsely arrested for passing
counterfeit currency, learn how to fool the counterfeit-detecting
pens into thinking a real note is a fake.   Have a great week,
everyone.
