We had no takers for Pete Smith's quiz question. Can anyone tell us about the painting at the Museum of Modern Art which has one cent coins embedded in the paint?
This week we have reports on several numismatic literature fronts, including new literature fixed price lists and upcoming auctions from around the world. A new history of the New York Numismatic Club has been published, and I review Jim Bevill's new book on Texas numismatic history and a field guide to detecting counterfeit one pound coins.
In other topics, Harvey Stack recounts the recent Kolbe sale of highlights from the Stack Family Numismatic Library, readers chime in on Comitia Americana medals, medal makers Noble & Benton, and Ira Reed's "reeded" nickels.
In the news, the National Numismatic Collection makes a major acquisition, and a new report studies the spending psychology of money denominations.
To learn about topics as diverse as Vespasian's Judea Capta denarius and the coin toss at next month's Super Bowl, read on.
