Welcome aboard! We now have 1,359 subscribers.
Sorry for the lateness of this issue - last night there was a glitch at Binhost, the service we use to publish the newsletter. However, the delay allowed me to include NBS President Dan Hamelberg's message highlighting NBS activities at the upcoming ANA convention.
Next up are announcements of SIX new numismatic books and a review of an old but useful one. Other topics include Harvey Stack's reminiscences of the Chase Manhattan Money museum and visits from promising young numismatists, the "Our Colored Heroes" WWI medal, the Crane paper company and some great interviews with U.S. Mint personnel.
To learn about Asher B. Durand's brother, our mystery numismatist of 1885, Annie Oakley coins, Birmingham Mint machinery in India and how computers are getting TOO good at creating dies for U.S. coins, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
