This week we open with word from David Fanning concerning his upcoming literature auction, and announcements of two new numismatic books. Next, Len Augsburger publishes online an old newsreel relating to his recent book, Treasure in the Cellar.
We have many comments and follow ups this week on previous articles, including uncut signatures, collector K.P. Austin, and J.N.T. Levick. Next, David Lange provides background on his research into coin board maker Oberwise, and Dick Johnson reminisces about attending his first Library of Congress duplicate book sale.
In the news, technology advances continue to revolutionize the availability of rare and historical material for numismatic researchers, zillions of nickels spill onto a roadway, and a counterfeiting king offers tips for buyers of his coin press, now being sold in a police auction.
To learn about the Chinese coin dug up at a New York archeological site and the 1243-dated coin "found in an Ohio Rock", read on. Have a great week, everyone!
