V9 2006 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 28, July 9, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Diana Plattner of Whitman
Publishing, George Huber and Frank G. Cornish.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 937 subscribers.

There are a couple "new" books to report this week (new to me,
but maybe not to some of you).  One is a fiction work about an
ancient coin in the news recently, and the other is by a pair
of economists on the historical problem of keeping specie
coinage in circulation.

In the news we have another nominee for director of the U.S.
Mint and a call for speakers on the literature of medals for
next year's FIDEM congress.  And speaking of speakers, the ANA
has released a great schedule of educational talks for this
summer's World's Fair of Money.  Another numismatic get-together
of interest is October's Comstock/Carson Mint Seminar sponsored
by the CCCCOA.

In response to a question I review the differences between The
E-Sylum and our print journal, The Asylum, and ask for thoughts
on a possible addition to The E-Sylum format.

On the topic of coin dealer libraries we have a report on the
Chicago Coin Company library and some background information on
the Superior library from Julian Liedman.

In the research query department we have a question about the
Naramore counterfeit detector photograph sheets, and a pair of
questions on metallurgy and engraving from Dick Hanscom, who has
been using raw Alaska gold to make gold tokens recently.

To learn which one of our subscribers bought an AU Libertas
Americana medal in silver for $50, read on. Have a great week,
everyone!
