This week we open with some NBS news, including a report on our Numismatic Literature Symposium at the recent Baltimore ANA convention. Several books are covered this week, including new books on Confederate paper money and the Jamestown Exposition. Reviewed this week are 100 Greatest Ancient Coins, Good Money and the America's Gold Rushes catalog.
Queries this week address 1825 error half cents and Connecticut's Charter Oak. In the news, an old Scovill-produced token is featured in a newspaper article, a firm touts its design software at the U.S. Mint, and Carson City celebrates its 150th anniversary by striking medals.
To learn who "A. Seaman" is, or which European coin features Homer Simpson, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
