WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MARCH 23, 2008

Among our recent subscribers is Richard Burdick, courtesy of
Alan Weinberg. Welcome aboard!  We now have 1,134 subscribers.

This week we open with information on several Whitman Publishing
products, including new features appearing in the next edition
of the classic Redbook, and a report on upcoming books on tokens
and medals, U.S. gold, American coinage and ancient coins. Next,
Ray Williams reports on the recent sale of duplicate books at
the ANS.

Several items provide follow-ups to earlier discussions,
including courtesy signatures, deaccessioning of coins from
the Garrett collection at Johns Hopkins, and the filming of
'Public Enemies' at banks around the country.  My numismatic
diary this week covers a brief visit to Brookgreen Gardens
and other semi-numismatic sights.

In the news, Queen Elizabeth distributes Maundy Coinage in a
venue passed over for 700 years, a rare 1878 London medal turns
up in a New Zealand backyard, and a Czech bank note designer's
artwork is displayed in New York.  To learn who the Devil leads
into hell on a medal, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
