Welcome aboard! We now have 1,373 subscribers.
This week we open with a sample of the many great photographs taken by Dan Gosling at NBS activities at this past week's ANA convention in Boston. Next up is a new book announcement and three book reviews.
But we're not done with the ANA convention - next up are reports from Dick Johnson, Dennis Tucker, Pete Smith, Joel Orosz and Alan Weinberg. Thanks, everyone, for the timely reporting and great stories and photos. What a blockbuster week!
In topics opened last week we have the results of my quiz based on Dick Johnson's new book on monograms or coin and medal designers, and another sighting of James Audubon's now-famous grouse image.
Other topics include the James Gorter medal, the Roosevelt University course in numismatics, and the gift of a gold oban from Japan.
To learn about hoers, the Rittenhouse Society, George Washington's set of silver Comitia Americana medals, and paper money recovered from the wreck of the Titanic, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
