WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM APRIL 6, 2008

We have no new subscribers this week - our current count is
1,142. We open with news of a numismatic literature dealer
returning to the fold. Also, I review the Robert Bass Collection
book from Kagin's, and Mike Paradis tells us about a rare pamphlet
on the New Orleans Mint which recently sold at auction.  Next, a
web site visitor discovers our earlier articles on Scovill
Manufacturing, where her father and a family friend worked,
and Howard Berlin reports on his numismatic travels in Denmark
and Sweden.

Next are follow-ups on last week's April Fool's story.  I just
wish I'd been able to dream up something to catch my wife on
this year.  The best one was when I called her up before our
wedding and told her a friend of mine had just called and said
the hall wed booked for our wedding reception was on fire,
with three fire crews working to put it out.  She had a bird.

In responses to earlier items, we have information on Arras
tokens and numismatists Bob Wester and William A. Philpott, Jr.

In the news, charges are dropped against a Liberty Dollar
proponent in Lancaster, the Royal Mint unveils new reverse
designs for Britain's circulating coinage, and the National
Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio accepts
a donation of Short-Snorter bank notes.

To learn about the ATM that went haywire, which country's
coins will NOT feature a 'voluptuous female torso', and which
U.S. Mint employee is called The Big Cheese, read on. Have a
great week, everyone.
