Welcome to Coin Rarities Online as an NBS sponsor. I want to mention their ad in the May 18, 2009, issue of Coin World. They offered a silver spoon made by Ephraim Brasher with the slogan, "Buy the spoon before the doubloon." I found it amusing. Their ads are indeed clever; one of my favorite was the Pine Tree Shilling decorated with ornaments for Christmas. Welcome!
This week we had two numismatic literature sales close (Kolbe and Sklow). First up, dealer Richard Stockley announces a sale of fixed price material. Next, a next book on medals is in the works, and I provide a short review of Jim Noles' A Pocketful of History.
Other topics include bookbinders, digitizing institutional numismatic libraries, and new issues from the Royal Mint and the Bank of Jamaica. In topics continued from previous weeks we discuss Dye's Coin Encyclopedia and cutting up numismatic literature.
To learn about the world's first coin-operated vending machine, and which numismatic book the author of Forrest Gump recommends, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
