Regarding Alain Debelder's "Belgisch Noodgeld" book,
Rich Hartzog writes:
I now have a supply of this book on hand. Printed in Full Color, it runs 324 pages, with most items illustrated, with a price guide. While in French, it is straight forward, and easily usable by everyone. A four language translation section covers common words. Only $54 postage paid to the USA. I do have most exonumia books, at www.exonumia.com/books.htm.
Rich also forwarded the following press release relating to this week's ANA convention:
Rich Hartzog announced the immediate availability of the 28th annual Pass out Sheet listing all quality Token and Medal Dealers at the Boston ANA Convention.
All exonumia dealers will have a supply of the map and listing at their tables, as well as a supply at the front literature tables in the lobby. Pick up a copy and quickly find all exonumia dealers. The on-line version at www.exonumia.com/ana2010.htm also has links to dealer sites, email and physical addresses, as well as specialties at the show. Twenty dealers are on this year's sheet.

Earlier in The E-Sylum I mentioned the passing of
Bill Christensen and others added their comments as well. As numismatists we handle old things but we don't talk about our old colleagues much, most of them became our friends as well. At my age of 61 several are gone and I miss them, their friendship, their companionship as well as their business. Your forum is as good a place as any to remember them.
Last week we published parts of an article on the 500-Euro note.
The high-value bills are increasingly "making the euro the currency of choice for underground and black economies, and for all those who value anonymity in their financial transactions and investments," wrote Willem Buiter, chief economist at Citigroup, in a recent research report.
Joe Boling writes:
Which is exactly why Britain has banned the use of the 500-euro note in the country. Starting a few weeks ago, banks and money-changers are forbidden to sell the note (I don't know what the policy is on banks taking them in).
