Last's week's Kolbe & Fanning ad featuring Evelynís 1697 Discourse of Medals inadvertently excluded the book's title. My fault - sorry. The corrected ad runs below.
This week we open with an announcement from numismatic booksellers Kolbe & Fanning, a new book from Roger Burdette, and three book reviews. In the news is a blockbuster acquisition of colonial currency at Colonial Williamsburg and the sale of an Olympic Gold medal for over $300,000.
Other topics this week include Louis Eliasberg's unique 1877-CC No Arrows Dime, the "New Frontier" Congressional Gold medal designs, and an unusual early Roman coin counterfeit.
To learn about Hobby Protection Act regulations, some high-priced numismatic ephemera, Fred reed's next book, and the medal of minting machinery makers Taylor & Challen, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
