WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MAY 24, 2009

Wayne Homren Among our recent subscribers is C. John Ferreri. We now have 1,227 subscribers.

On April 19 you reported no new members and a count of 1229.
On April 26 you reported 6 new members and a count of 1233.
On May 3 you reported 1 new member and a count of 1234.
On May 10 you reported 2 new members and a count of 1224.
On May 17 you reported 3 new members and a count of 1227


So why don't the numbers add up? Well, I don't list every new subscriber because all I really see are email addresses and addresses like "banjolvr51" are hard to translate. People subscribe and unsubscribe all the time and Iím unable to list everyone individually.

Sometimes the system automatically unsubscribes people after their email addresses bounce enough times, and that's what happened to drop the count on May 10th. So the number goes up or down independently of the new subscribers I list each week.

This week we open with updates from numismatic literature dealers Fred Lake and David Fanning, and later I discuss selected lots from David Sklow's upcoming sale. New books this week include Howard Daniel's new Vietnam book and a new edition from Krause of the Modern Paper Money book.

In the news, one numismatic firm changes its name, one loses a namesake and a videographer returns to business full-time. Topics continued from earlier issues include Werner Amelingmeier, Washington Irving, and the very rare Pliny Chase catalog of U.S. Civil War Tokens.

Other topics include the launch of the newest Lincoln Cent, the home of an early U.S. Mint Director, challenge coins, charge coins and barter art. To learn how go shoe shopping without cash money, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
