WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM MAY 2, 2010

Wayne Homren

Among our new subscribers this week are Tim Shisler, courtesy of Jeff Marsh and Eduardo Capocchi. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,336 subscribers.

Sorry I missed the EAC convention last week in Annapolis. Jim Neiswinter and others were asking for me. I was hoping to attend the Friday dinner and Joel Orosz and Len Augsburger's talk afterwards about their new book.

Fate intervened and I ended up not going. I was unable to get a reservation for the dinner, and other plans didn't work out. I hear it was a great convention and hope E-Sylum readers in attendance had a good time.

This week we open with notes from two Davids: David Sklow updates us on his latest literature sale, and David Lange treats us to a book review. Next up are notes from Len Augsburger and Joel Orosz on research for their upcoming book on Frank Stewart and the first Philadelphia Mint.

Other topics this week include the world's largest banknotes, political sentiments on banknotes, counterfeiting and counterfeiters, dealer Robert Batchelder, the Brookgreen Gardens medal series, and a new numismatic quiz.

To learn about numismatics and Falun Gong, the Shubert distillery, Charles Barber's engraving tools, Da Ming Tong Xing Bao Chao, the scaffold-scaling 93-year-old, Colombian drug dealers, and the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels of Australia, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
