The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 20, May 14, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Jon Amatp of Heritage Auctions,
Carl Matthews, Dwight Manley, Thomas Steward, John Murphy, Tim Webb
and Michael Roschel. Welcome aboard!  We now have 895 subscribers.
Many thanks for Bill Murray who mentioned The E-Sylum in a recent
Coin World article - this may be where some of our new subscribers
Are coming from.

We lead off this week with good wishes for Nancy Green, who
recently retired as Librarian of the American Numismatic Association.
One book it will be the duty of someone else to catalog and place
on the shelf is Roger Burdette's "Renaissance of American Coinage
1905-1908", which became available over the weekend - I've written
a review.  Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing provides an update
on the upcoming Cherrypickers' Guide, and in response to a query
Nancy Oliver & Rich Kelly remind us of how to order their book
'A Mighty Fortress: The Stories Behind the 2nd San Francisco Mint'.

Research queries this week include requests for information on
the Feversham Hoard and Georges Bataille of the Bibliothèque
Nationale.  Karl Moulton and Dave Bowers provide peeks into their
upcoming books as they answer the previous query about the Jacob
Perkins building in Newburyport:  Did Perkins really make coins or
paper money there?

Dick Johnson chimes in with three great articles this week, all
related to rising commodity prices and their affect on coinage.

Finally, reports from Spain note that several employees of the
worldwide collectibles firm Escala have been arrested following
a police raid on the company’s headquarters related to charges
of fraud involving stamp investments.  The firm has a number of
unrelated numismatic divisions, including Bowers and Merena
Auctions, Spectrum Numismatics and Teletrade in the U.S.  Have
a great week, everyone.
