WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM SEPTEMBER 19, 2010

Wayne Homren

Among our new subscribers this week are Andy Singer, courtesy of Dave Schenkman, and Roman Kitaev. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,372 subscribers.

This week we open with an update on the NBS Wiki Bibliography, results of this weeks' Kolbe & Fanning sales, and word from Charlie Davis on his upcoming sale of numismatic literature from the libraries of Allan Davisson and Michael Hodder. Next is a new review of James Bevill's recent book on Texas paper money. Other topics include Guttag's Coins of New Jersey book, lettering on U.S. coins, and why the U.S. cent still clings to life.

Regarding last week's issue, Joe Boling writes: "I laughed aloud at your line about monkeys and typewriters." Well, we've got some more humor this week in submissions from Tom DeLorey and Harvey Stack.

To learn about a French countermark of Louis XIII found in Sri Lanka, more about the "Arabic" coin found in Germany, the meaning of "opistrographic", Andy Warhol's Indian Head Nickel, ships on coins, coins on ships, and a medal for a sunken ship, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
