WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Gary Sparks and Don Carlucci.
Welcome aboard!  We now have 912 subscribers.

This week we open with some news from the U.S. Mint, a very

Mint's Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.

Alan Weinberg offers commentary on the recently-concluded
Stack's Ford Sale, and Dick Johnson reviews Larry Lee's
dissertation on Numismatic Education.

what Colorado's governor said when seeing the new Colorado state
