WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM OCTOBER 18, 2009

Wayne Homren

Among our recent subscribers are Laurent Comparot of France, and Keith Wagner. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,270 subscribers.

This week we open with reviews of a couple new books of interest to numisamtists, and a book-like fixed price list of pioneer tokens from Fred Holabird. Next we have an update from Len Augsburger and Joel Orosz on their upcoming book about Frank H. Stewart and the first United States Mint.

In follow-ups from last week we have comments on the plethora of special Redbooks, part two of Dick Johnson's series on the making of the 2009 Victor David Brenner Lincoln medal, and more on the 1783 Nova Constellatio pattern set.

A featured article this week concerns the heartbreaking loss of dealer Julian Leidman's inventory to thieves who broke into his vehicle last week. We describe and illustrate a number of highly identifiable pieces and encourage readers to be on the lookout.

To learn about anti-drinking and anti-slavery tokens, the Royal Mint's nine-year-old coin designer, and the dog who ate a paper money collection, read on.
