The E-Sylum: Volume 13, Number 51, December 19, 2010, Article 21

NOTES FROM E-SYLUM READERS: DECEMBER 19, 2010

Jim Duncan of New Zealand writes:

This Pummerin Bell piece of Austria, 1711-2011, is that 400 years northern hemisphere? Down here it's only 300 years, I guess that's why we live longer!

Oops! The coin caught my eye, but not my brain. That's why I keep a fifth-grader handy to do math. I blindly copied P.K. Saha's note and didn't check it - sorry! -Editor

David Ganz (a member of the 1974 Assay Commission) writes:

Actually, Roger Burdette's book covers through the 1944 Assay Commission, which took place in February 1944 (covering year 1943). I hope Roger does add the remaining years. If he wants the records of the 1974 commission, I still have them. What a great job he did!

Responding to the Slate article forwarded by Tom Fort, George Kolbe writes:

While hundred dollar bills may be utilized to further various nefarious schemes, they are essential, particularly now, for the preservation of what many consider a basic American value: THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY. Go after the bad guys but don't take away yet another vestige of freedom.

George INSISTS that his mattress is NOT stuffed with $100 bills. But he's cagey about ruling out fifties... -Editor
