MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL SOCIETY NUMISMATIC COLLECTION ITEMS ONLINE

Anne Bentley of the Massachusetts Historical Society writes: "I'd
like to alert your readers that our website features items from our
numismatic collections in its online series "Object of the Month."

"Unfortunately it's not generally searchable at the moment (but we're
planning to fix that), so the only way to see them is to search
specifically ("Order of the Rising Sun," "Columbia and Washington medal")
or use Wayne's new numismatic search engine to find "Massachusetts
Historical Society," which brings up the current "Object of the Month."
Go from there to Object Archives and you'll see thumbnails of every
previous item.

"The predecessor site, "From our Collections" is also archived online,
and you'll find our Santa Claus Bank note there, among other numismatic
items."
