This week we open with a report on the NBS general meeting at last week's ANA, and comments on the Burnett Anderson Award for numismatic writing. Next, we have a preview of David Sklow's upcoming numismatic literature sale.
This issue has a number of items related to the ANA convention, the highlight of which from a numismatic research standpoint has to be the Pioneer Gold Forum meeting on the suspect 1853 U.S. Assay Office of Gold pieces. In the "OMG what a gorgeous coin" department is a report on the John Reich Collector's Society meeting on the Eric P. Newman collections of early U.S. quarters and dollars. Alan Weinberg and I each have ANA Diaries this week.
Queries this week address the "Lost Cause" plaques related to U.S. Confederate paper money and U.S. Mint-engraved 1921-D Morgan dollars.
In the news, an article delves into goings-on at the Hispanic Society of America and Sotheby's cataloging of the coin collection at the ANS. Other news items cover topics such as a new exhibit at the Philadelphia Federal Reserve, and sales of replica medals. To learn how and why coins were first "flipped" to make a decision, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
