This week we open with information from numismatic booksellers David Fanning and George Kolbe. Next up is a new book, a "tribute edition" of The Fantastic 1804 Dollar.
Queries this week include an interesting obsolete scrip note vignette, a set of electrotypes of 19th century gems and medals, and WWI military "welcome home" medals.
In the news, we now have a "new" Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, a Missouri-based coin capsule investment scam, and a state archive sale of confederate-era southern banknotes.
It's been a good weekend in the Homren household. On Saturday Christopher and Tyler picked up a trophies for their 3rd/4th grade basketball team's second place season finish, and Tyler got the Coach's award. Today I took the training wheels off four-year-old Hannah's bicycle, and soon she was off riding on her own like she'd always done it that way. Dad stayed up 'til midnight working on his newsletter, but had fun doing it.
Anyway, to learn about numismatics and the Spiney Fubbaduck, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
