The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 27, July 2, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Dave Brickard and Jim Urbaniak.
Welcome aboard!  We now have 933 subscribers.

Our West Coast readers who await their weekly E-Sylum issue each
Sunday evening had to wait til morning last week.  No technical
difficulties this time, but due to circumstances I was unable to
publish the issue until the wee hours of Monday morning.  As a
result, a number of submissions that arrived over the weekend
didn't make the cut for last week's issue, including a number
from our most prolific contributor.

Dick Johnson writes: "Last week's issue marks a milestone. It is
the first issue in a year and a half I did not have at least one
article in The E-Sylum (not since January 2, 2005).  I am currently
in the 400s -- number of my articles you have published in E-Sylum
-- and am looking forward to my 500th submission, perhaps later
this year."

Sorry!  This week's extra-long issue puts us back on track, covering
(as usual) a wide range of numismatic topics from across the spectrum.
We lead off with some very happy news about a recent classic work
on numismatic literature, followed by information on a number of new
works on numismatics.  Also recently in the news, Superior Galleries'
Specialty Coin Reference Library is now open to the public.

These items are followed by some recent news events in numismatics,
including a new entry for the "Things that are no longer there" but
pictured on recent coins or banknotes.  In the minting technology
category we have the announcement of an interesting new coin employing
a photographic holography device.

The Chinese food gods must know I'm a bibliophile. From a recent
fortune cookie: "You have at your command the wisdom of the ages."
With folks like Dick Johnson and all of you out there as subscribers
and contributors, that statement is also true when applied to our
little newsletter.   You just never know what interesting topics are
going to pop up, and this week is no exception.

For example, we learn of a Time magazine review of "Corpus Nummorum
Italicorum" and that a design honoring the Pork Chop John sandwich
was proposed for a circulating U.S. coin.  I kid you not ... and to
learn just how many vowels there are in the state motto of Hawaii,
read on...  Have a great week, everyone!
