V11 2008 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 11, Number 11, March 16, 2008, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MARCH 16, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Paul Herrick, courtesy of Russ
Sears, Don Bailey and Joe Falater, courtesy of John and Nancy
Wilson, Mike Packard and Peter Huntoon.  Welcome aboard!  We now
have 1,130 subscribers.

This week we open with reviews of three books: Eric Newman's
"United States Fugio Copper Coinage Of 1787", Bob Forrest's "An
Introduction to Religious Medals" and Humberto Costa's "The Notes
of the Island of Puerto Rico".  Also, Mike Paradis has made
available some photos from the ANS duplicate book sale.

In a response to a query, Pete Smith, Dick Johnson and George
Kolbe provide background information on Charles Johnson.  New
queries this week include coin motifs on building architecture,
particularly banks.

In the news this week, one of the world's largest collections
of Lincoln numismatic items has been closed to the public, the
BEP issues a redesigned five dollar bill and advertises for
apprentice bank note designers.  My numismatic diary this week
covers the March meeting of my northern Virginia numismatic
social group (which is still searching for a snappy name).

On behalf of myself and NBS I'd like to thank David Fanning
for being The E-Sylum's first advertiser.  Readers and dealers
alike are encouraged to take advantage of this new forum to
publicize their numismatic literature wants and for-sale items.

To learn which numismatic author thought variety collecting
was a worthless endeavor, where to find a group of 1906 Morgan
Dollars and how an important coin collection was saved from
destruction in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, read on.
Have a great week, everyone.
