This week we open with a short review of Len Augsburger's new book, and learn more about Pennell's counterfeit detector reprints. In topics inspired by previous articles we discuss the Voltaire, 1777 Franklin, Hume and D'eon Medals and Frank Stewart's collection of items relating to the first U.S. Mint.
In the news, the ANA settles one of its lawsuits, a significant collection of Australian coinage is going up for auction, and Lord Ashcroft finds a home for his Victoria Cross collection. This week's numismatic diary covers some interesting love tokens and visits to both Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C.
To learn about B. Max Mehl's advertising secret and tokens made to honor “hatches, matches, dispatches or snatches”, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
