Happy belated birthday to Eric Newman, who turned 99 on May 25. I gave him a call that afternoon, and he's still as sharp as ever, and working on numismatic research. He's a regular E-Sylum reader who finds at least three or four articles of interest in every issue.
This week we open with reminders of two upcoming numismatic literature sales, results from a recent Baldwin's sale, and announcements of three new books.
Other topics include banknote designer Harry Eccleston, Chinese coin researcher and collector Howard Bowker, and an unusual tour related to the Denver Mint.
To learn about numisnautical research, butterflies, coin shrinking, and the whereabouts of the columns from the fašade of the third Philadelphia Mint, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
