WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MARCH 30, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Christopher Bolton and Shawn
Hewitt.  We now have 1,141 subscribers.

This week we open with NBS annual meeting news, an update on
the ANS duplicate book sale, and upcoming Chicago convention
events.  Next up are announcements of new books on the numismatics
of Mexico, Canada and Jersey, and a new archive of online
numismatic books.

In follow-ups to topics from prior issues we discuss coin
rebasing, protecting libraries from fire, coin-inspired
architecture, arras tokens and the dumbing-down of stage money.
Web site visitors this week bring word of a 94-year-old Better
Baby medal winner and a curious note without serial numbers.

In the news, the ANS has been hit with a lawsuit, a group of
companies proposes a new system for electronic payments, and
Iraqi citizens return coins to a museum in a Baghdad ceremony.
As if that's not enough, for fun we introduce a new game for
bibliophiles.  To learn about Swedish Rounding and  the Peek
Frean's Teddy Bear Biscuits token die, read on. Have a great
week, everyone.
