NEPAL'S DROOLING DOLLAR DRAWS OUR 1000TH SUBSCRIBER

Way back on November 16, 2003, a web site visitor wrote to pose a
question about a "drooling dollar"  He had read (but later discarded)
a Numismatist article on the unusual banknote.  He recalled: "The
article said that this dollar was released but corrected immediately
and if anyone got a hold of one of the drooling dollars it could
fetch a dandy price. At an antique shop I found one of each, the
drooling and non drooling dollar featuring this prince's portrait,
and a stunning leopard or tiger on the back.  I am wondering if I
can find out what country it is from."

The banknote turned out to be from Nepal. I had forgotten to follow
up with the writer, but posted his query and subsequent responses
in the E-Sylum issues.  As with all issues, these were archived on
the web.  Just this week he happened across the web page and writes:
"Thank you for posting my question.  The answers were greatly
appreciated.  E-Sylum readers Joe Boling and Neil Shafer were able
to answer my question."

In his message, he also asked to become a subscriber, so bringing
the E-Sylum subscriber list to the 1000 mark is Jim Driscoll!
Congratulations on helping us reach this milestone.  Other new
subscribers this week include Howard Wheeler and John Dembinski.
Welcome aboard, all. We now have 1003 subscribers!

By coincidence, the circumstances of our 1,000th subscriber are
fairly representative of what The E-Sylum is all about - sharing
numismatic information not just among ourselves, but with the greater
community.  By publishing our back issues on the web we are making a
large body of information available to a general public that had
little ability to access top numismatic experts in the past.  By
connecting people across many miles (and many years) we contribute
to raising the global numismatic I.Q. while at the same time making
more people aware of the precious trove of knowledge to be found in
numismatic literature.  Thank you all for being a part of this.
