The E-Sylum:  Volume 11, Number 9, March 2, 2008, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MARCH 2, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Jim Hughes of the Smithsonian,
courtesy of Douglas Mudd, former Early American Coppers
president March Wells, courtesy of Alan Weinberg, J.W. Byars
of Houston, TX, courtesy of Tom Wall, also Rich Mantia and
David Dearinger. Welcome aboard!  We now have 1,122 subscribers.

This week welcome several new subscribers, thanks to the
efforts of our readers.  Although we do have an E-Sylum
announcement to make in this issue, the remainder is a good
representation of what readers get here every week - a mixture
of numismatic literature reviews and announcements, research
queries and responses, some first-person accounts of numismatic
history (this time from Alan Weinberg, Cliff Mishler and
others), numismatics in the news, and a bit of numismatic humor.

We open this issue with an update on the ANS duplicate book
and catalog sales, reviews of Rob Turner's book on 'The 1858
Cents of Provincial Canada', Donald Sundman and Janet Klug's
'100 Greatest American Stamps', and short notes on the 14th
edition of Yeoman's Modern World Coins (followed by a great
account of the Standard Catalog of World Coins numbering system).

Next, Roger S. Siboni writes about the late Michael Weller
of San Francisco, a trio of E-Sylum readers correctly answer
last week's quiz, and Anne E. Bentley of the Massachusetts
Historical Society responds to the question about deacidification
sprays.  Following some responses to earlier queries we have
a Subscriber Profile about a 15-year-old E-Sylum reader
responsible for creating a popular numismatic exhibit at
a major museum.

In a submission inspired by my numismatic diary last week,
Bob Evans writes about the J.L. Polhemus counterstamps found
on gold coins salvaged from the wreck of the S.S. Central
America.

In the news we have reports of a panic over coinage in Cuba,
more U.S. merchants accepting Euros, and the District of
Columbia's fight with the U.S. Mint over its quarter designs.

To learn how people around the world count cash, and which
numismatic author was also an expert on Teddy Bears, read on.
Have a great week, everyone.
