This week we open with information on the latest numismatic literature sales from Fred Lake, George Kolbe and David Sklow. A new book is in the works on John J. Ford and the "Franklin Hoard", and Rodger dewardt Lane creates a print-on-demand version of his book on small size silver coins. Next, we highlight a great article by Jim Neiswinter on the famous 1869 AJN Levick Plate of 1793 Large Cents.
Queries this week cover a newly discovered J.L. Polhemus counterstamped coin, numismatic books published on CDs, and how to count edge reeds. In follow-ons to earlier E-Sylum items, we learn about 1907 Jamestown Exposition material coming to market, Will Robins provides a report on the Carson City sesquicentennial celebration, and Eric Newman gives us more background on the $20 U.S. Assay Office of Gold forgeries.
In the news are items about a new documentary film and the discoveries of British archaeologists who uncovered coins made centuries apart as the same dig site. And oh, yeah, today's my birthday! Thanks to Nick Graver for remembering.
To learn the difference between two Ira Reeds, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
