The E-Sylum:  Volume 11, Number 5, February 3, 2008, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM FEBRUARY 3, 2008

We now have 1,118 subscribers.  This week we open with a feast
of numismatic literature offerings, including David Fanning's
latest fixed price list, a duplicate sale by the American
Numismatic Society, and George Kolbe's 105th sale.

In the new books category we have Whitman's announcement of
their new Guide Book of U.S. Commemorative Coins and Alan
Weinberg's review of the Heritage Walt Husak large cent sale
catalog.  Also, the ANS E-News provides hints of 'Pictures of
the First United States Mint:  The Numismatic Legacy of Frank
H. Stewart' by Leonard Augsburger and Joel J. Orosz, and
Augsburger's solo work, 'Treasure in the Cellar', the story
of the 1934 Baltimore gold hoard. Also in this issue I review
Spinks' Coins of England and the United Kingdom.

Responses to earlier issues cover topics such as the late
Diane Wolf, San Francisco Assay Office deposit records,
answers to the questions about dealer 'Brownie' and Bobby
Fischer's gold coins, and retiring ANS librarian Frank Campbell.
We also have word from a prominent numismatic literature dealer
that he is NOT retiring, thank you very much.

Numismatic news from around the world opens with word that
the Royal Mint is planning to remove a centuries-old tradition,
the use of the image of Britannia on British coinage.  Included
is a great article about the designer of the last coin to
feature Britannia.

To learn about Christian Decimus Ironside's connection to
numismatics and three reasons for a coin designer NOT to
sign his work, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
