The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 33, August 13, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

We have no new subscribers this week - boo hoo!   While you folks
are at the American Numismatic Association this week, collect the
email addresses of potential subscribers and send them to me.  I'll
be happy to send them a complimentary subscription.

This week's issue includes a number of interesting items. We begin
with a preview of the next Asylum issue, and review proposed changes
in American Numismatic Association exhibit categories.  In the news
we have an article about the ongoing controversy and lawsuit involving
the ANA and a resolution to the tale of the funny $100 bills that
were turning up earlier this summer - and someone's going to jail.

We also have a resolution to the question of the disposition of Harry
X Boosel's coin collection, and learn a thing or two (some hearsay)
about dealer James Randall.  On the trail of numismatic knowledge,
I chronicle my search for information on a prominent numismatic work
seen by thousands of commuters daily.

Speaking of this week's ANA convention, be sure to visit and patronize
the numismatic literature dealers setting up there.  John Burns and
Charles Davis will both at the show(at tables 249-250 and 332,
respectively).  These gents are providing a great service for collectors,
bibliophiles and researchers attending the show.  It is very expensive,
time consuming and downright tiring to haul a display of numismatic
literature to a show.  It's also hard to get away from your table at a
big show, so ask if you could bring them lunch or refreshments.  Browse
their stock, buy some books and place some orders!  Or bring a few
choice duplicates to sell!

Next week's E-Sylum may be a bit off-schedule, so hold your fire if
it doesn't arrive in the usual time window.  I'll be in the middle of
a house move and may not be able to wrap things up as usual Sunday
evening - there could be a delay until Monday evening.  If you'd like
to submit something for the next issue, it would be best to send it by
Wednesday the 16th.  But as always, I'll do my best to accommodate
late arrivals if possible.

To learn about the numismatic connection to "heap bad medicine" and
tondo (and no, it's not the Lone Ranger's sidekick), read on.  Have
a great week, everyone!
