This week we open with updates from three numismatic booksellers, David Sklow, David Fanning and Fred Lake. Next, book reviews and updates cover several topics including early U.S. currency, Confederate paper money and Russian Civil War banknotes.
On topics opened in previous issues we discuss the 1795 reeded edge large cent, JFK's lucky gold coin and the Lewes Pound. In the news are coin and medal designers Dora de Pidery-Hunt and Richard Masters.
To learn of a modern day execution for counterfeiting (and an accused witch being forced to pluck a silver coin from boiling oil), read on. Have a great week, everyone!
