WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM FEBRUARY 10, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Roger Urce, courtesy of
David Klinger, and Dan Burleson.  Welcome aboard!  We now
have 1,122 subscribers.

This week we have a bevy of new books to discuss: Whitman's
new edition of 'A Catalog of Modern World Coins, 18501964',
Jeff Ambio's 'Collecting and Investing Strategies for U.S.
Gold Coins', Ron Benice's 'Florida Paper Money: An
Illustrated History 1817  1934', Bob Forrest's 'An
Introduction to Religious Medals' and Doug Mudd's 'Money
& Sovereignty as Expressed in Gold Coinage'.

Responses from previous queries concern 'A Catalog of NENA
Medals', and a publication predating the 'Brown & Dunn"
grading guide using the same line drawings.  Readers provide
more background on dealer "Brownie' Brown and Diane Wolf,
and we learn which numismatic author worked for the New
York State Library (and what he got in trouble for later
in his career).

New queries cover topics such as coins produced in England
for Queen Liliuocalani of Hawaii, Pismo Beach clam money,
the obsolete bank note collection of the Philadelphia National
Bank, who named the Euro, and a rare-coin-themed episode of
Amos and Andy.

In the news, from Florida we have a report on toll booth
operators refusing "sticky" coins, and from the Houston
Chronicle we have an article on a Texas Numismatic Association
exhibit of the money of the Lone Star State containing my
favorite quote of the week:  "Not every historian is a
numismatist," he said, "but every numismatist is a historian."
(James Bevill).

To learn what rare coin Mohamed and Fatima Ismail think
they found, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
