THE E-SYLUM AND THE ANA'S NUMISMATIST

My copy of the October Numismatist arrived this week, and the
smiling faces of a number of E-Sylum regulars are pictured.  Dick
Johnson's article on the Carnegie Hero Medals has a photo of Dick,
myself and medallic sculptor Luigi Badia, taken at the September
2004 Hero Fund Centennial dinner.  I also wormed my way into a
picture with collector Stan Turrini and Hero Fund commission
managing director Doug Chambers.  It was taken while we set up
the Hero Fund medal exhibit at the 2004 ANA in Pittsburgh.

Exhibitors Bill Cowburn, Stephen D'Ippolito and Sam Speigel are
shown, as are Mike Ellis, Ken Bressett and Kerry Wetterstrom.
Double Eagle author Alison Frankel is shown autographing copies
of her book, and Wendell Wolka is shown hard at work as an ANA
museum volunteer.

John Kraljevich's Early American Money column asks, "What's Brown
and Hides Under Half Cents"   The answer?  Extremely rare copper
half dollars of 1794.   Be sure to read this fascinating article.

Bob Leuver, who first shared some of his knowledge of the topic
with us in The E-Sylum contributed an article on "Canaries &
Currency" about the birds employed to detect deadly fumes at the
U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing.  Under "Learn more..."
the article references two E-Sylum articles!  This isn't the
first time our newsletter has been referenced in print, but it's
nice to be recognized so prominently.

Another article related to topics brought up previously in The
E-Sylum is "Find a Numismatic Grave" by Frank Passic.  The article
pictures the final resting places of coin designers Victor D.
Brenner and Felix Schlag.

I've been behind in my periodical reading and should note the
article by NBS Board member Joel Orosz in the September issue:
"An Interview With Lorin Parmelee".  The article discusses the
numismatic information found in Charles Tatman's "Plain Talk"
magazine, a onetime official ANA publication, and reveals some
long-forgotten information about one of America's leading coin
collectors.

If you're not a member of the American Numismatic Association
you're missing out of some great numismatic reading.
