W. B. YEATS AND NUMISMATICS
Michael E. Marotta writes:
"Your question about Nobel
Laureate numismatists should have been common knowledge
to all E-Sylum participants. My "Money Talks" script has
appeared on rec.collecting.coins several times since 1996,
though not this year.
I found Yeats' monograph in the stacks at the MSU library
when I lived in central Michigan. I shamelessly xeroxed it for
(ahem) "fair use." If there are two correct answers to the
question, then I would give credit to Mommsen. He was
more of a numismatist. Yeats' interest was cursory at best."
[Editors note: Mr. Marotta's script is #901 in the ANA
Money Talks series. It is titled "Ireland's Poet Laureate"]
