We don't have a lot of reader-generated content this week, but that's OK - one never knows what the mix will be from week to week. But we do have a good selection of numismatic news and information covering a wide range of topics. I'll look forward to your comments, although I've long ago given up on trying to predict which articles will inspire more discussion. That's part of the fun of The E-Sylum - one never knows what direction we'll go in, but you can count on it being interesting.
This week we open with a new book on Ottoman Empire coinage, word of a new book-in-progress on a U.S. counterfeiter, and an article on the benefits of marginalia, those scribbles in books we either love or hate.
Other topics include BEP engraver Tom Hipschen, who loses out in the Borders bankruptcy, florescent lighting in libraries, and The British Museum.
To learn more about counterfeiter Lyman Parks, koniackers, damascened medals and copycat Challenge Coins, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
