This week we open with updates from numismatic literature dealers David Sklow and John Burns. Next up is an announcement about a very useful web site for collectors who'd like to compile museum-style inventories of their collections.
New books this week cover topics including U.S. Colonial coins, Confederate Depository Receipts, and the WWII Operation Bernhard counterfeiting scheme. Queries cover topics including State of Georgia Treasury Notes, and an interesting toning effect on coins.
We also have several comments and corrections to earlier E-Sylum pieces. (What!? We make mistakes? That must be a mistake...). Also, my apologies to several readers who submitted items for publication this week - the clock ran out before I could manage to get everything in. There just aren't enough hours in the week... I do want to pass on this note from Dave Bowers, though. He writes: 'Tis George Washington's birthday today--the president most honored on tokens, medals, and paper money.
Anyway, to learn about Herr Alexander's medal, the great 1909 cent theft, and how you, too, can scam millions of dollars from Citibank, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
