The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 44, October 29, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

We have no new subscribers this week. The issue is a lengthy one,
with another assortment of topics from all over the numismatic map,
including my trip to Pittsburgh for the PAN show this weekend.
I have a short write-up on the show later in this issue.  For those
of you who read their issue late Sunday, outgoing email problems
delayed publication of this issue until Monday morning - sorry.

On Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting longtime E-Sylum subscriber
Paul Landsberg, who had a table at the show, as did Julian Leidman.
Quite a number of E-Sylum readers were in attendance.  The awards
banquet was most enjoyable - at my table were Tom Sebring and his
wife, Cliff Mishler, and longtime PAN supporters and officers Jerry
Kochel, Dick Duncan and John Eshbach.

We open the issue with sad news of the loss of a longtime subscriber
and numismatic author.  Dick Johnson provides us with a fascinating
account of his recent interview with a friend who personally knew
many of the major U.S. mint coin designers of the early 20th century.
Two interesting items in this issue involve the olfactory senses -
one addresses the question of coin smells, and another describes how
dogs are being used to sniff out counterfeit currency!  Read on to
learn more.  Have a great week, everyone!
