This week we open with word on the latest issue of our print journal and updates from two numismatic literature dealers. Next we have reviews or announcements of several new numismatic books, including one on early American money.
In queries from earlier issues, we revisit topics including the most expensive coin book, counterfeit circulating pound coins, and the 1858 Mint Cabinet robbery. In the news, smoking bans lead prisoners to forms of money other than the traditional cigarettes, and a reporter visits the Royal Mint.
But I believe the most interesting item by far this week is a photograph submitted by R.V Dewey. Is it a secret signature of engraver James B. Longacre? To see for yourself, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
