WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MAY 4, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Bruce Smith, courtesy of
John and Nancy Wilson, Penny Russell, Eric Knapp, and George
A. Bilodeau, Jr.  Welcome aboard!  We now have 1,132 subscribers.

This week we open with updates from numismatic literature
dealers Fred Lake and Douglas Saville, and word that Coin
World is opening its online edition to all print subscribers.
Next, we have the nominees for the 2008 IAPN book award and a
review of the "new" book on 1794 dollars by Jack Collins and
Walter Breen.  Then, Rich Mantia and Dennis Tucker confirm
that indeed there is a "Guide Book of the Guide Book" in the
works.

Next, Dick Johnson discusses the role of computer tools in
coin and medal engraving today.  Topics inspired by earlier
E-Sylum articles include "Thou Art the Man", Chinese coin
and paper money fakes, and Asylum editor Carling Gresham.

In the news we have a good deal of information from overseas.
Numismatic researchers may be interested in the new online
records of the Old Bailey.  Other topics include a new fifteenth
century treasure ship discovery, a distillery on a banknote,
and the destruction of an entire issue of new coins due to
design copyright issues.

To learn what numismatic item is shaped like miniature ivory
jalapeņos and has a real bite to it, read on. Have a great
week, everyone.
