The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 48, November 26, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

This week's issue brings a typical smorgasbord of numismatic
topics, beginning with reviews of two new books - one on U.S.
Southern States currency, the other a compilation of contemporary
newspaper articles relating to numismatics published in 18th
century Nova Scotia newspapers.

Proving that a good numismatic bibliophile can connect virtually
any topic to numismatics, Harry Waterson reveals an interesting
personal friendship linking basketball founder James Naismith to
a leading medal sculptor of the 20th century.

In research queries this week, George Fuld seeks information about
the 1792 Washington Cent in gold.  Other queries include a reminder
for collectors to support the funding of the old San Francisco
Mint numismatic museum by purchasing the commemorative coins from
the U.S. Mint.  The Mint this week officially launched another
series of coins - the Presidential dollar coins were unveiled to
the mainstream press this week, generating multiple articles and
editorials.

And finally, proving that politics is never far from numismatics,
we have one short follow-up on last week's discussion of the American
Numismatic Association, and we close with two articles on numismatics,
politics and religion, one on the ongoing "In God We Trust" battle,
and the other on coins and archeology in Jerusalem.

To learn the name of our 1,000th subscriber, read on.  Have a
great week, everyone!
