Welcome aboard! We now have 1,330 subscribers.
Sorry for the late publication time - I was traveling this week and it was a struggle to keep up with all the material. I think we have another great issue, although my fingers are crossed with respect to the special characters we've had trouble with in the past. Hopefully the new fix will work for the entire issue.
We open with reports from literature dealers Doug Saville and Bryce Brown, followed by announcements and reviews of three new books. In other news we learn what the ANA and ANS libraries bought at the recent Stack Family library sale. Other topics this week include the model for Draped Bust coinage, casino chip collecting, and the first ever Victoria Cross medal.
To learn about the
grouchy old man of numismatic writing, a Russian cannonball from the Crimean war, and Johnny Swing's Nickel Couch, read on.
