Regarding Tom Kays' review of John Kleeberg's Numismatic Finds book, Megan Fenselau of the American Numismatic Association writes:
What a nice a review in the recent E-Sylum. Unfortunately, the link is incorrect and it mentions a pre-publication sale that ended last year. We've gotten a few inquiries so I just wanted to let you know.
Actually, the review itself didn't contain a link, but as standard practice in The E-Sylum, I included a link to the previous article discussing the topic, in this case the original pre-publication press release from March 2009. Sorry folks, you missed the boat on the pre-publication price of $65 (that offer expired long ago).
To order a copy of Numismatic Finds at the list price of $125 (or ANS Member price of $87.50), see:

BOOK REVIEW: NUMISMATIC FINDS OF THE AMERICAS BY JOHN KLEEBERG

I spent an interesting evening at the Calumet Numismatic Club in Munster, Indiana. They took advantage of the Central States Numismatic Society's offer to reimburse the club up to $200.00 for a speaker's expenses (one speaker a year per club). The Calumet Club had Mr. Harold Levi speaking on his book, "The Lovett Cent, A Confederate Story".
It was a very interesting Powerpoint presentation. It was particularly interesting to see him utilize Powerpoint to demonstrate the differences between the original pieces and restrikes, copies and fantasies. By moving quickly from one image to another the differences were readily apparent. I sat next to George Corell and got a great introduction to Confederate coins from him.

As part of next week's Folklife Festival I'll be on the National Mall all day on June 27th. I'll be happy to identify anything anybody brings in, to my best ability.
Tongue-in-cheek, Dick Johnson writes:
I'd like to issue a medal in silver or gold for Campbell Soup Company. It will be the first in a series of bouillon medals.
