WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers is Gerald Buckmaster.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 928 subscribers.

Jeff Reichenberger writes: "Happy Father's Day to all E-Sylum
fathers. I wanted to relate one of the favorite gifts I received
this year from my 5 year old daughter. It's a card actually, a
five inch embossed replica of the obverse of a Washington Quarter.
However the motto reads "In DAD We Trust". On the inside it says,
"Don't ever change". Apparently the designer of the card assumes
the obverse of the Washington Quarter will never change. My first
numismatic Father's Day gift!"

This week brings news of some more new numismatic publications.
2006 should be a great year for bibliophiles.  But don't think
we're ever likely to run out of good ideas for numismatic books -
Dick Johnson provides a list of ten titles that have yet to be
written, and they aren't all in jest.

In the feedback category, Dave Perkins chimes in with a response
to George Fuld's query on collecting city directories, and Bob
Evans discusses the recent Forbes article on the Central America
treasure investors.

>From the popular press we have some nice articles on topics as
diverse as the U.S. Institute of Heraldry, the private manufacture
of U.S. cent planchets, and coins found in New York City parking
meters.  To learn the numismatic connections to Ball jar lids and
Zamboni machines, read on.  Have a great week, everyone!
