The E-Sylum:  Volume 11, Number 4, January 27, 2008, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM JANUARY 27, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Colin E. Pitchfork, courtesy of
John and Nancy Wilson, Tom Harrison and Brad Weaver.  Welcome
aboard!  We now have 1,116 subscribers.

Following brief notices about NBS dues and show tables, this week
we open with a discussion on the most valuable numismatic books,
triggered by the recent sale of a book on U.S. MPC for over $100,000.
Next we have a brief notice on a new book by Eric Newman, and an
appreciation of numismatic editors by Ray Williams.

Questions this week involve the Brown and Dunn grading guide,
and a coin dealer named "Brownie".   Follow-ups from last week
include items on the Castorland medal, Diane Wolf, and the
rarity of the Adams Academy medal.

From the science desk we have articles on counterfeit coin
detection by sound, and a study about germs on paper money.
In the news we have reports on numismatic museum exhibits in
Romainia, and profiles of U.S. Mint artist Susan Gamble and
Rep. Jose Serrano.   Also, happy twentieth anniversary to the
polymer banknote!

To learn where the coin tossed by referees in the Super Bowl
comes from, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
