This week we open with updates on the upcoming October numismatic literature sales from David Sklow and David Fanning. Next, we have the announcement of a new edition of Eric Newman's classic work on U.S. colonial paper money, and reviews of the new 2009 Standard Catalog of World Coins 2001-Date and I'm Chet.
Responses to earlier discussions encompass a wide range of topics, including numismatic book oddities and bois durci. New queries involve the most expensive numismatic book and the robbery of the U.S. Mint coin collection in 1858.
In the news, a fire forces the evacuation of the U.S. Mint in Denver, Co., counterfeit one-pound coins flood England, and Spink is auctioning a one million pound banknote. To learn where to find 300,000 euro cents lying loose in the streets, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
