WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Donald G. Tritt, courtesy of
Dick Johnson, Mike Shofner, Brent Upchurch, Pierre Fricke,
J. Richard Becker and Robert Rightmire.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 971 subscribers.

This week's issue is a big one, opening with news of an upcoming
numismatic literature auction, a new and revised numismatic literature
fixed price list, and a planned "Numismatic Conversation" on the topic
of the extensive ANS archives.  In old news that some of you may not
have heard yet, lawmen seized millions of dollars worth of numismatic
items on display at the recent Long Beach coin show.  "We were robbed!"
was the cry.

In the literature review department, we have items on the latest
Stack's John Ford sale and four other books, new and old.  Next,
Dick Johnson announces of his dramatic concept for solving the problem
of what to do with the U.S. cent and nickel coins as the cost of the
raw materials to manufacture them rises.

In the research department, we have some information on locating the
"UFO token" images, a TV program on restoring mutilated currency,
and some background information on wooden medals.  In other topics
begun last week, Dick Johnson and Tony Swicer discuss Bernard von
NotHaus and his Liberty Dollars, which have been in the news again
due the Mint's recent pronouncement.  Also, Alan Luedeking reminds
us of an important numismatic research role played by counterfeit
coins.  In new topics, a new subscriber asks about the Guttag
Brothers.

What coin did Abraham Van Der Dot design, and why did Walter Johnson
throw a coin across the Rappahannock river?   To find out, read on.
Have a great week, everyone!
