This week we open with word on a couple of new books from Whitman Publications. Next, Richard Jewell reviews a new book on an old and interesting numismatic topic. Other books discussed include George Selgin's Good Money and Steve Tompkins' book on Early U.S. Quarters.
In topics from previous issues we have further information on star stamps on U.S. paper money, lists of pharmacist-numismatists, information on a new edge reeding technique, pedigree information on the Charlotte medal, and the Hispanic Society of America's plans for the coin collection formerly on "permanent" loan to the ANS.
Queries this week include engraved "dog tag" Love Tokens, collectors Bryon Reed and Byron Johnson, and more. To learn what the "N. T." in "Joseph N. T. Levick" stands for, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
