WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM AUGUST 10, 2008Among our recent subscribers are John Herzog and Douglas Nyholm, courtesy of John and Nancy Wilson, and Steve Ferguson. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,170 subscribers.
This week we open with a report on the NBS general meeting at last week's ANA, and comments on the Burnett Anderson Award for numismatic writing. Next, we have a preview of David Sklow's upcoming numismatic literature sale.
This issue has a number of items related to the ANA convention, the highlight of which from a numismatic research standpoint has to be the Pioneer Gold Forum meeting on the suspect 1853 U.S. Assay Office of Gold pieces. In the "OMG what a gorgeous coin" department is a report on the John Reich Collector's Society meeting on the Eric P. Newman collections of early U.S. quarters and dollars. Alan Weinberg and I each have ANA Diaries this week.
Queries this week address the "Lost Cause" plaques related to U.S. Confederate paper money and U.S. Mint-engraved 1921-D Morgan dollars.
In the news, an article delves into goings-on at the Hispanic Society of America and Sotheby's cataloging of the coin collection at the ANS. Other news items cover topics such as a new exhibit at the Philadelphia Federal Reserve, and sales of replica medals. To learn how and why coins were first "flipped" to make a decision, read on. Have a great week, everyone.
