The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 30, July 23, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers (and re-subscribers) are Jordan Bell,
Bob Evans and Eric Li Cheung.  Welcome aboard!  We now have 946
subscribers.

This week we have some more suggested references on minting
technology, and a review of the new "Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold
Coins" by Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth.  We also learn about several
books which include actual numismatic items.  There are a couple
things that aren't in this issue:

Regarding the latest California wildfires, numismatic literature
dealer George Kolbe writes: "I nearly sent a note for the big E
saying that all is well here, since a number of people have inquired.
Basically, the main fire at one time threatened the Big Bear
mountain area, 30 miles east. I believe the nearby Lake Arrowhead
fire is contained. A good source of local information is:
www.rimoftheworld.net."

I didn't publish their replies, but I wanted to thank Paul DiMarzio,
John Isles and other for responding to Granvyl Hulse's query, published
last week in a more general article on Internet forums for general
numismatic questions.  Paul writes: "Glad to finally be of some use
to this publication, although I think we're departing from the topic
of bibliomania :-)  Maybe the point is that it takes quite a nice
reference library to collect and study Roman coins."

Back to what you'll find in this issue, we have answers to our query
about African-American signers of U.S. paper money, more from Dick
Hanscom on striking private gold tokens, an article on coins with
moving images, information on the sale of Superior Galleries, and
Howard A. Daniel III issues a call for a National Numismatic Museum.
To learn about Mazzulla brothel tokens and other numismatic items
relating to "ladies of doubtful reputation", read on.  Have a great
week, everyone!
