OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY: NUMISMATICIAN

Bill Murray snail-mailed me a copy of the Oxford English Dictionary
entry for Numismatic - "of, pertaining or relating to, coins or coinage."
The entry lists a number of variants of the word, some of which we've
discussed earlier in The E-Sylum: numismatical, numismatician,
numismatist, numismatography, numismatologist and numismatology.

"Numismatician" was a new one on me until Bob Fritsch used it in a
2002 E-Sylum submission, quoting the Swiss National Bank:
esylum_v05n46a20.html

The term is still in used as I learned via a web search.  Here are
some examples:

"A well-known numismatician in coastal Jiangsu Province, Wu Gensheng,
recently donated all his 10, 000 pieces of coins to the museum of
Wujiang in his hometown. " (March, 2001)
Full Story

"The aim of this part of the collection is only to give an overview
of the legends, and it is not organised with the numismatician's point
of view in mind." (June, 2006)
