This week we open with some NBS news followed by announcements of new books on U.S. paper money and a special edition of the 2010 Redbook. Next up is my review of David MacDonald's Overstruck Greek Coins and John and Nancy Wilson's review of the Whitman Encyclopedia of U. S. Paper Money.
The big news this week (to me, anyway) was the appearance of the Nova Constellatio pattern set at the recent Whitman Philadelphia show - we have an admittedly lengthy piece about the set with contributions from several readers.
In other news, Dick Johnson launches a new medal business, the 2nd Annual British-American Token Congress has been scheduled, and the results of the law license suspension hearing for the former Executive Director of the ANA have been made public.
To learn about the thirty-year practical joke, alchemy and numismatics, and which coin is like "tying a bull pup to a basket of cucumbers", read on.
