This week we open with reactions to the new format of The E-Sylum. In other NBS news, we discuss the balloting for the Greatest American Numismatic Literature survey. Book announcements and reviews this week include books on the Westmoreland Collection of Alexander and the Hellenistic Kingdoms, Coins and Tokens from the Island of Jersey, and Walking Liberty Half Dollars.
In responses from previous issues, Alan Weinberg discusses unusual marks on some 1794 dollars. Also, Roger Urce and Joe Boling noted that a newspaper article mistakenly referred to Steve "Fellers", but his name is actually "Feller" (sorry I didnít pick up on this)!
In the news, the ANS has been ordered to return the Huntington collection to the Hispanic Society of America, Stack's will be auctioning branch mint gold coins recovered from the 1846 wreck of the steam ship New York, and mining interests in Montana managed to insert a requirement for palladium coins into the recent U.S. Mint legislation.
To learn what hairspray and the cascabels of two old cannons have to do with numismatics, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
