This week we open with updates on the NBS print journal and survey of the 100 Greatest Works of American Numismatic Literature. Next, we have some new comments on The E-Sylum's new format and
excerpts from a nice hobby newspaper article about us.
The book department has my review of Katie's Jaeger's new Whitman book on Tokens and Medals, announcements of Chet Krause's autobiography, Steve Tompkins' new book on Early U.S.
Quarters, and Roger Burdette's new book on Peace Dollars.
In follow-ups from earlier newsletters, we have items on Ted Naftzger, Salmon P. Chase and Royal Mint die numbers. E-Sylum readers have also solved the mystery of an unusual "coin" found
recently on a Florida beach.
Topics in the news include a proposed private currency in England, a coin find in Bulgaria, and a soldier who had the image of his Victoria Cross medal tattooed across his back.
To learn where hurricane Katrina destroyed $250,000 worth of Confederate currency, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
