WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers is Kyle Davis.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 930 subscribers.

Several E-Sylum subscribers were at the recent Memphis Paper
Money show, and some have provided us with reports.  This issue
also brings sad news of the loss of one of our members.

We have some more information on the Count Ferrari collection
catalogue, and U.S. Numismatic personalities mentioned this week
include Luther B. Tuthill, Augustus G. Heaton and George 
Massamore.

For U.S. numismatic researchers, David Gladfelter discusses a
"directory of directories" listing known City Directories before
1860 and where to find them.  David also discusses civil war
cardboard scrip, and George Kimmich has queries about two
counterstamps.

Topics related to the U.S. Mint include reports on the launch 
ceremony for the Colorado State Quarter, the release of the new 
24-karat American Buffalo gold coins and behind-the-scenes looks 
at the West Point Mint. Other topics await.  To learn why an 
Australian Mint worker walked a little funny, read on.

Thanks once again to all the great folks at American Numismatic
Rarities for their handling of my consignment.  I was both nervous
and excited as I followed the bidding online this week, and I 
can't help but be pleased with the overall result.  The postage stamp
envelopes drew spirited bidding as did the star of the show, the
Sand's Ale encased piece. I trust that my collections of
counterstamps, Encased Postage Stamps and other Civil War
numismatica have found good homes.  I couldn't attend the sale in person, 
and I'd be pleased to hear from some of the bidders.

One subscriber told me that when he recently asked a prominent 
U.S. paper money dealer about postage stamp envelopes, he had no idea 
what he was talking about.  Hopefully the auction has served to educate
a few people about some interesting byways of numismatics.   Have 
a great week, everyone.
