In his Money Museum column, curator Douglas Mudd discusses the creation of the ANA's new exibit A House Divided: The Money of the Civil War.
One short article I'd like to mention covers a current exhibition at the Denver Art Museum. Houdon from the Louvre displays portrait busts by French sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon, including two that served as models for U.S. coin designs: George Washington (1786) and Benjamin Franklin (1778).
Editor-in-Chief Barbara Gregory forwarded the following items of interest to E-Sylum readers. -Editor

The mission of the ANA's official publication, THE NUMISMATIST, is to educate and provide a forum for the interchange of ideas. It serves as a refreshing review for the experienced collector and as an introduction to essential concepts for the less experienced. The staff and contributing editors of THE NUMISMATIST welcome the opportunity to review well-written, well-conceived articles displaying original, documented research. Collectors/researchers are invited to submit manuscripts on any numismatic topic, in particular United States coins. Authors of articles published in the magazine receive $.12 per word, with bonuses available to those who provide usable photographs or illustrations and/or furnish material for photographic reproduction.
