WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Robert Kanterman, David Marsh,
Mike Ringo, Nelson Wolbert, Robert Davis, Horacio Morero, President
for Instituto Uruguayo de Numismatica, courtesy of Jose Luis Rubio,
and William Shamhart, courtesy of John Eshbach.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 908 subscribers, a new record.

We open as always with news and updates on numismatic literature.
This week we begin with a note on Karl Moulton's latest fixed price
list and a peek into the contents of his upcoming book on Henry Voigt.
By popular demand we also have another installment from Barry Jablon
recalling his days as a Gimbel's department store coin dealer.

In the news, we have word that the Senate Banking Committee has
approved the San Francisco Mint commemorative coin bill.  If passed
into law, surcharges from the sale of the coins will help restore
the Mint building and open a new American Money and Gold Rush Museum
to be run by the ANA.   Other news articles published this week
concern topics as varied as the Order of the Bath ceremony and
souvenir coins of the Syttende Mai festival (what are they? Read on!)

In response to earlier queries we have more information on the
numismatic writings of Georges Bataille and the case which once
contained the five 1913 Nickels.  We also have another book review
(this time Daughtrey's "Looking Through Lincoln Cents") and a web
site review (coinarchives.com).  Reader comments on both are welcome.
Much more awaits in this issue - Have a great week, everyone.
