WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers are Bob Saylor, courtesy of John
Eshbach, and Paul N. Romano. Welcome aboard!  We now have 991
subscribers.

This week's issue brings great news for numismatists and bibliophiles
- a new numismatic museum and library is opening this week in the U.S.,
and a numismatic exhibit reopens in Berlin.  Our readers have contributed
some good information on collector J. Hewitt Judd, and we have a
query about William Barber, Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.  And
speaking of mints, the once high-flying Franklin Mint has been sold
again.

Around the world we learn about change shortages in Moscow, a
politically sensitive banknote spelling mistake in Kazakhstan,
and new honors for the inventor of the polymer banknote.

Next week your editor will be poking around the Pennsylvania
Association of Numismatists show in Monroeville, PA.  I understand
Cliff Mishler will be at the show as well, so it's the numismatic
place to see and be seen.  The fall colors are in full bloom this
time of year, so it's a great time for a drive through Western PA.

While looking for fall colors this afternoon our family took a
random drive around some nearby country roads and stumbled across
the fall harvest festival at Great Country Farms in Bluemont,
Virginia.  Great fun for all, and life just isn't complete until
you've fired a big pumpkin from the Great Emancipator Pumpkin Cannon,
which I understand came in fourth in the 2004 World Championships
with a launch of 3877.68 feet!  Here's a picture of the cannon on
the farm's homepage, and a YouTube video of a similar launch.
Have a great week, everyone!
