The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 50, December 10, 2006, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS

Among our recent subscribers is Tom Hoffman. We now have 1,011
subscribers.  Welcome aboard!

This week's issue opens with news from the top numismatic literature
dealers of our day, Doug Saville and George Kolbe.  On a sad note,
David Ganz notes the passing at age 91 of a U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver.
Our numismatic search engine gets rave reviews, but the Newspaper Archive
gets a thumbs down from one reader.

It's been a great week for new books - this issue includes reviews or
announcements of no less than five new titles, including the Santiago
Mint book by Carlos Jara and Alan Luedeking, Whitman's new book on U.S.
Civil War numismatics, and the new book on Minnesota Obsolete Bank
Notes & Scrip.

In numismatic museum news, Howard Berlin reports from Berlin, Germany,
and the American Numismatic Association announces a new head of Museum,
Library and Research Services and a new Deputy Executive Director for
Education.

In a move widely anticipated for some time, the family of Izzy Switt
has sued for return of the ten 1933 double eagles confiscated by the
U.S. Mint.

And finally, which medals designed by Gustav Vigeland were awarded
today?  And what eye-popping rare coin was (probably not) deposited
in a Salvation Army donation kettle recently?  Read on to find out.
Have a great week, everyone!
