The E-Sylum:  Volume 11, Number 19, May 11, 2008, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MAY 11, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Peyton Smith, Emily Sewell and
Amanda DeWees of Whitman Publications, Robert Ronus, Dave Welsh,
Dick Dunn, Robert Kanterman and Larry Schuffman. Welcome aboard!
We now have 1,140 subscribers.

This week we open with news of what I hope will be a welcome change
in the format of The E-Sylum newsletter.  In other NBS news, ballots
for the greatest American numismatic literature survey have been
distributed.  Book announcements and reviews this week include
Canadian municipal trade tokens, a guidebook of Mexican Numismatic
Literature and the Guide to Vintage Coin Folders and Albums.
[And speaking of coin folders, the June issue of COINage has a
nice article about David Lange and the collecting of coin boards,
folders and albums, written by Dom Yanchunas.]

In responses from last week's issue, Daniel Carr and Dick Johnson
review computer sculpting programs for coin and medal designers,
Tim Shuck discusses platinum coins, and Larry Gaye discusses
Byzantine coins used for tossing at soccer matches.

In the news, an editorial writer blasts the design choices for
Washington D.C's quarter, under-banked inhabitances of the Alaskan
bush resort to cash substitutes, and counterfeit-fueled inflation
in Somalia sparks rioting.

To learn how many people it takes to create a one-hundred dollar
bill, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
