V9 2006 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 16, April 16, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Joe Fitzgerald (courtesy of
John Eshbach), Dennis P. Skea and Barry Jablon. Welcome aboard!
We now have 878 subscribers.

We're publishing a little early today because of the holiday.
Lots of submissions this week, on topics old and new.  One
highlight for me has been reading Barry Jablon's recollections
of his days working in department store coin shops, a topic
discussed by several readers last year.  Barry found us as a
result of a web search which led him to the E-Sylum archive.
Viva Internet!

In the news, another quarter-million dollars worth of coins and
gold bars have been recovered from the Atocha shipwreck, copper
and zinc prices imperil the U.S. cent, hackers stuff the electronic
ballot box with votes for their favorite Washington State quarter
design, and new legislation could mandate better record-keeping at
the U.S. Mint and provide funds for displaying more of the National
Numismatic Collection.

And finally, to learn why some people fry their ATM cards in a
microwave oven, read on.  Have a great week, everyone.
