   Do you have an interesting new acquisition for your numismatic 
   library?   Don't be shy, tell us about it.  Go ahead, brag. 
   Drop me a few lines and I'll publish them in future mailings. 


   ... that American Numismatic Association members can request 
   that their copy of The Numismatist be mailed in an envelope? 
   This keeps your issues clean and avoids the unsightly mailing 
   label on the cover.   It's a good thing to do if you're trying 
   to keep your set up to date.  


   Today's featured numismatic web site is "COINS OF THE U.K.", by  
   Tony Clayton, a series of pages dealing with the history of  
   individual denominations used in England since the Norman Conquest:
