Among our new subscribers this week are
Richard Marlor, and
We now have 1,387 email subscribers, plus 101 followers on Facebook, including Ian Fenn, Evgeni Paunov and Eko Santozo.
One email subscriber we lost wrote: "I unsubscribed because for two weeks in a row I had to look at Sarah Palin's mug and read about her. I'm sorry but this, at least in my humble opinion, does not belong in a numismatic publication no matter how very slight the tie-in."
Well, the same article generated comments that we were both promoting and bashing you-know-you. I may publish a Rorschach inkblot sometime, just to see what people read into that...
This week we open with several remembrances of numismatic publisher Al Hoch, followed by an update from Fred Lake of Lake Books. Next up are articles on two new numismatic books and two book reviews.
Other topics include the Green Duck Corporation, the Truman Library coin collection, encased coins, and the Money Museum in Denver (no, not THAT Money Museum - another one).
To learn about the printing plate for the cover of Harry Boosel's 1873 book, the ANA School of Numismatics, and Grandpa Cheney's "Carnegie Medal", read on. Have a great week, everyone!
