I had several new reports of missing issues again this week. I contacted Binhost support, and they tell me they found a queue of held-up messages and released them Saturday evening. Those of you who had been missing previous issues may have them by now. If you've written to me before about this problem, please let me know if you've received your issues.
This week we open with word from literature dealers Sklow and Lake, and an announcement of an amazing new book on bank note engraving. Also in this issue, readers comment on the new Professional Edition of the Red Book, we learn the status of the NIP index, and Dick Johnson proposes a new index to numismatic content in non-numismatic publications.
Other topics include publishing on demand, William Woodin, John Kittredge, Rollie Finer and Admiral Nelson (and his many medals). Other follow-ups from earlier articles include the 1959 Hawaii gold statehood medal, and the Yoachum dollar.
For humor this week, Dick Johnson writes:
"If Senator Jim DeMint had a medal made it should be struck at the Denver Mint. DeMint by D Mint!"
To learn about Nelson's Gold Nile medal and Mark Yaffe's orchestrions, ponder the true origin of medal and coin die alignments, and debate catalog descriptions of rarity, read on.
