The E-Sylum:  Volume 10, Number 20, May 20, 2007, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM 20 MAY, 2007

Among our recent subscribers is F. Carl Braun.  Welcome aboard!
We now have 1,113 subscribers.

As noted last week, this issue is being published early due to your
editor's relocation to London, England.  So get used to it, and be
prepared for occasional deviations due to travel.   I'm settled here
quite well now.  Many thanks to all the locals who have come forth
with offers of visits.  I'll be in touch soon and apologize to them
and anyone else if I haven't replied to email in the past few days.
My ISP back in the states is having some difficulties (again), and
I havenít been getting incoming mail to whomren@coinlibrary.com.
Once the floodgates open I may discover some additional E-Sylum
submissions.

I hope to see some numismatic sites on my visit, although so far
about all I've seen is the outside of the Tower Mint and Spink's.
I'm getting used to using the local coins and paper money, and
naturally I'm setting some aside for my kids as souvenirs of my
trip.  Finding nice examples of some denominations has been difficult
so far; my first impression of the coins here is that they seem
shopworn compared to the coins in the U.S.  The one pound coin in
particular seems well worn.  Without a comparable banknote the pound
coin is a real workhorse.

This week we open with a look at the contents of the next issue of
our print journal, The Asylum.  Next up is word of a new book on
images of slavery in Confederate and Southern States Currency, and
a limited edition of the Roman Gold Coin Price Yearbook.

In the news this week, a bomb scare empties a U.S. Mint facility,
and the B.E.P. announces a new anticounterfeiting technology.  In
the numismatic research department, Hugh Shull is looking for images
of rare varieties and errors of Confederate currency, and readers
come forth with information on  artist and engraver John Casilear.
To learn how to order Canada's new million-dollar gold coin, read
on. Have a great week, everyone.
