This week we open with some numismatic literature sale results from Dix Noonan Webb, an announcement of another Joel Malter library sale, and information on FOUR new books of interest to numismatists and bibliophiles.
Other topics addressed this week include the history of the Red Book, Jerry Fochtman's mystery numismatist, and a beautiful collector's cabinet from 1630. Queries include visitors to the Chase Manhattan Bank Money Museum, Wealth of the South tokens, and a strange-looking good luck symbol.
To learn about the world's largest gold coin, Schenkman-48, the use of kerosene in striking coins, and the night the Charlotte Mint was destroyed by fire, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
