Many thanks to Paul Petch who clued us in on a possible source of the formatting problems we're been having. A programmer at Binhost.com is looking into it. Paul, Gar Travis, Pete Smith, Jim Duncan, Bruce Perdue and others helped review some test mailings. We still have some work to do, but hopefully we're getting closer to a resolution. Thanks for your patience.
This week we open with news on this week's NBS activities at the American Numismatic Association convention in Los Angeles, CA. Next up are reviews of numismatic books new and old on topics including Isaac Newton, counterfeiting, U.K tokens and Olympic medals and coins. Also, Tim Shuck provides a review of the new PCGS CoinFacts.com web site.
In news of interest to researchers, Google has greatly increased its newspaper index. Other topics this week include archival storage boxes, Guttag Brothers tokens and a project to catalog the work of medallist Marcel Jovine.
To learn about the collection of rare, one-of-a-kind books, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
