VOCABULARY WORD: PARANUMISMATICA
We discussed numismatic word definitions several issues ago. Mr. Withers' web site uses a word your American-bred Editor hadn't seen before: paranumismatica. In context: "World Paranumismatica - Tokens, Countermarks and the like from around the globe."
A web search turned up 25 pages using the term, one defining it as the "British term for exonumia" I'm sure Paul would prefer a definition along the lines of "Exonomia: American term for paranumismatica"
