This week we open with notes on the E-Sylum online archive, the usefulness of the 100 Greatest Works of American Numismatic Literature, and our E-Sylum editorial policy. Moving on to literature, next up are notices and reviews of recent books on numismatic photography, superintendents of the San Francisco Mint, campaign tokens and medals, and Canadian historical medals. In other topics Richard Doty brings advance word of his newest book and we discuss Frank Campbell, recently retired librarian of the ANS.
In items related to earlier discussions, we have the final outcome of the effort to extract a Carnegie Hero Medal from a block of Lucite, and an interesting early U.S hoard coin, still entombed in a Lucite block.
In the news, a German firm is taken to task for printing banknotes for the Zimbabwe government, the U.S. government is sued over the Liberty Dollar raid, and protesters return their Victoria Cross medals to the British Government. To learn about another coin tattoo (this one Canadian), read on. Have a great week, everyone.
