This week we open with a note about the new cumulative index to The Asylum and an update on the balloting for NBS' list of the greatest works of American numismatic literature. Next, Dick Johnson reviews the new book on national Commemorative Medals.
Other new books discussed this week include Len Augsburger's Treasure in the Cellar, Steve Tompkins' book on early U.S. quarter dollars, and two works from Whitman Publishing on paper money.
In items inspired by previous E-Sylum discussions, we cover freezing water-damaged books, U.S. territorial tokens, and the debate over donating collections to museums. Queries this week cover topics including the deluxe Newcomb on large cents.
In the new, the History Detectives examine a coin said to be shot by Annie Oakley, and a German banknote firm bows to pressure and stops supplying banknote paper to the Zimbabwe government.
To learn what makes a Good-For token worth over $5,000, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
