WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Mitch Sanders and Thomas Van
Zeyl. Welcome aboard!  We now have 882 subscribers.

We've got our usual mixed bag of material this week.  No
earth-shaking developments, but interesting stuff nonetheless.
We start off with an announcement of a new book for Conder token
collectors.

Several readers have offered tidbits about J.V. McDermott's 1913
Library Nickel displays, but the central question of who exhibited
one of the nickels at the 1957 Philadelphia ANA convention remains
unanswered, although J.V. McDermott seems the likely candidate.

Although it's unrelated to numismatics, there are some parallels,
and our readers may find something of interest in a story about
an investigation into the recent sale of the United Nations' stamp
archive.

We have some new discussion of royal portraits on coinage, and
another report indicating that the rising interest in sports medals
continues unabated.  For fans of Roman debauchery, a new museum
exhibit examines Caligula's reign through coinage.

In the "numismatic tourism" department, Dick Hanscom provides
photos of the Jacob Perkins mint building in Newburyport, MA, and
Dick Johnson provides some more background on Brookgreen Gardens.
Have a great week, everyone.
