This week we open with more discussion on the new E-Sylum format and other NBS business, including events at the upcoming ANA convention and the Greatest American Numismatic Literature survey.
Also this week, several E-Sylum readers honor a prolific numismatic researcher and author on his 97th birthday. In numismatic literature news, a major U.S. numismatic periodical goes online, and Whitman Publishing seeks ephemera relating to its flagship Redbook.
In general news, a judge rules U.S. currency must be altered to better accommodate the blind, the U.S. Mint rations silver bullion coins, and a Vietnam-era military medal brings a staggering sum at auction.
Responses to earlier discussions include the Wikipedia Numismatic portal, and Salmon P. Chase's image on U.S. paper money. An interesting topic in numismatic research will be discussed by R.V. Dewey this week in Long Beach - did James Longacre place hidden signatures on his U.S. coin designs?
To learn how to extract a medal embedded in a block of Lucite, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
