Among our recent subscribers are Billy Kiser, courtesy of Alan Weinberg, and Alberto Paashaus. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,221 subscribers.
This week we open with an update on the NBS survey of the 100 Greatest Works of Numismatic Literature, followed by news from literature dealers Fred Lake and David Fanning.
Next up are a review of a new book on New Mexico trade tokens by Alan Weinberg, notes on the latest Colonial Newsletter, Dick Johnson's commentary on The Collector's Essential Bookshelf, and a marvelous interview with numismatist Eric P. Newman.
In topics carried over from previous issues we have some great items on the tokens of Herr Alexander and that coin toning effect (for which we've now identified a name). Other topics include Chinese printers of numismatic books, and the law and numismatic translation.
To learn about negative shadow and surface displacement, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
