WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM AUGUST 29, 2010

Wayne Homren

Among our new subscribers this week are Michael Atkins, courtesy of Gene Brandenburg, and Mark Watson. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,369 subscribers.

This week we open with a note on The E-Sylum's publishing anniversary and updates on two upcoming numismatic literature sales. In other book news we have some more books with encased coins and a nomination for the worst numismatic book ever.

Next, Andy Lustig provides a great report from the recent Saint-Gaudens seminar, and Dick Johnson ponders the future of coins. Other topics this week include an interesting engraved Civil War item, more background on the Roosevelt University numismatics course, an update on the Dollar ReDe$ign project, and an ancient coin found in a Roman mosaic.

To learn about the original plasters for a 1907 Extra High Relief $20 with Arabic Date, a souvenir of the Kansas Rebellion, a medal from the Indian Wars, the rare diagonal stripes of the Air Force Combat Action Medal, Beaver Pelts, José Jiménez, and a bunch of tea-drinking fancy pants Limeys, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
