V13 2010 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE

The E-Sylum: Volume 13, Number 51, December 19, 2010, Article 29

FEATURED WEB SITE: THE TOKEN AND MEDAL SOCIETY

This week's Featured Web Site is suggested by Bill Hyder, who writes:

I want to pass along news that the Token and Medal Society web site (www.tokenandmedal.org) is slowly coming back to life. One of my first projects has been to create an index for the TAMS Journal in an attempt to make 50 years of publications accessible to researchers. At present, contents and indexes for volumes 31 through 50 are online.

A search function for the TAMS Maverick database is being tested and will be released in the next few months. While there is still a lot of work to do, new content is being added every few weeks to benefit the members of TAMS and the hobby in general.

Comments, contributions, and suggestions for additional content can be sent to the TAMS Webmaster, Bill Hyder (bsktmkr@pacbell.net).

A "maverick" is an unattributed token. TAMS regularly publishes lists of tokens of unknown origin in an effort to assign attribution. -Editor
