No new subscribers this week - our current subscriber count is 1,269.
Hmmm. Maybe we HAVE hit a subscribership plateau. But don't tell me there are no more than 1,269 serious numismatists in the world. Give a free gift subscription to a friend (send me their email address and we'll sign them up)!
One item that fell through the cracks last week was this note from Richard Doty of the National Numismatic Collection:
On numismatic encyclopedias, I wrote one for Macmillan, published here and in the UK in '82. It's worth a look, has many basic terms, coins, etc., etc. About five hundred entries, as I remember.
This week we open with an update from dealer David Fanning. Next up, Martin Gengerke's book update is available on the web, as are e-books from the Old Fort Coin Club and Dane Kurth.
Other topics include Walter Breen's time at Johns Hopkins, the Henry Fauntleroy hanging penny, a 1911 Tiffany Lifesaving medal, and a record $2.5 million price for a medal.
To learn about
the Australian slouch hat penny carvers, Somali pirates, Spanish scientists and how to release the artistic design talents of a central banker, read on.
