This week we have a number of new book announcements on topics including British token coinage, Panic Scrip, Canadian Historical Medals and Chinese Amulets. Next, we have remembrances of literature dealer John Bergman, author Neil MacNeil and dealer Tom Flynn.
New queries this week involve Valentine's Fractional Currency book and removing those nasty price stickers from books. Comments inspired by earlier E-Sylum articles include more background on the use of die numbers on British coinage, collector Ted Naftzger and author William Sheldon.
In the news, Scottish banknotes are saved by a new deal, Royal Mint and U.S. Mint workers are interviewed, and magnetic paper is proposed as an anti-counterfeiting measure for banknotes. To learn which U.S. Mint Director will rise from the dead and walk the earth, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
