This week we open with some results from David F. Fanning Numismatic Literature's first mail-bid sale. Next, we have a report from Douglas Saville on last week's sale of the Alexander Wild numismatic library in Zurich. New books discussed this week include Rynearson's Ancient Greek Coins and David L. Ganz' Profitable Coin Collecting.
In other book news, we have photos of the recent Whitman Expo exhibit of the unique 1969 Braille Red Book and excerpts from last month's Coin World article on The Fantastic 1804 Dollar book.
Other topics include Indian Peace medals, Washington inaugural buttons, Alaska native gold tokens and cranky booksellers. To learn about Moseby the Guerrilla and which numismatic book was banned by the U.S. Secret Service, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
