This week's issue has three themes, none of which was planned. First, numismatic literature dealers are dropping like flies and three of them will not be attending the upcoming ANA convention in Los Angeles. The second theme is counterfeiting, in the form of three book announcements. Lastly, we have two new books with saloon tokens on the cover and a reminiscence involving dealer Bill Christensen's favorite watering hole. What is it about numismatists and saloons?
As noted this is a big week for the Numismatic Bibliomania Society - several events are planned for the Los Angeles convention. I can't be there either, but hope everyone has a great time. Please do report back for next week's E-Sylum.
In the news, the big story this week concerns the ten confiscated 1933 double eagles. Other topics include the updated PCGS CoinFacts.com site, St. Patrick coinage in North Carolina, a medal made in Paris to honor a Confederate General, and the Odessa Numismatic Museum.
To learn about Gold Brick Archimedes, a numismatic souvenir of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the giant sculptured head of Samuel Lachman, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
