V10 2007 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE

FEATURED WEB SITE: THE NUMISMATIC ENQUIRER

This week's featured web site is The Numismatic Enquirer, a site
designed to help with the identification of counterfeit U.S. coins
and paper money.  It's a new site with many parts still under
construction, but it already has some very interesting content
(see links below). One page illustrates details of a contemporary
counterfeit of an 1862 two dollar note, and another shows the
operation of a device called the Spuriscope, designed to detect
counterfeit U.S. notes (19291935 Series D,$1 to $10,000 denominations)
by dialing their serial numbers on a dial like a rotary telephone.
Most curious!  Has anyone seen one of these devices?
