NOTES FROM E-SYLUM READERS: FEBRUARY 27, 2011

Rhonda Kauffman, ANS Library Cataloguer
American Numismatic Society librarian Elizabeth Hahn writes:

We have recently taken on a new part-time cataloger here at the ANS Library (unfortunately our previous part-time cataloger left to pursue a full-time offer with another organization). Our new cataloger is Rhonda Kauffman, and she is already adjusting quite well to the numismatic world (and also has her own personal interest in U.S. coins!).

Rhonda's a new subscriber - welcome aboard! -Editor

Prince Edward County
I read the article on the transfer of the Victoria Cross library to Ameliasburgh in Prince Edward County. Prince Edward County is not on Prince Edward Island, but is near Belleville, Ontario, a couple of thousand kilometers west of Prince Edward Island. The website gave some clues to this as it mentioned Quinte and Belleville. I thought that I should mention this just in case anyone is planning to drive up to see the library!

Thanks. It's a pet peeve of mine that local newspaper web sites make it so hard for outsiders to figure out where they are based. It all makes sense to the locals, but those of us out here on the web need a clue. Great story about the library, though. -Editor

On States and Hard Money
Joe Boling writes:

The South Carolina politician who wants hard money should probably wait until the impending trial of Bernard Von NotHaus (NORFED) concludes.

More on the 1945 No Mintmark Nickels
Joe Boling adds:

Faint mintmark on war nickel You may have the no-Mintmarks nickels paired up properly now, but you have the captions switched. And I believe I can also see a faint S over Monticello on the 1945 piece, in the straight-on shot. The angled shot looks more like a P, but there is definitely something there.

Joe's right, as always - the captions were switched, too. Sorry! -Editor

Differences in Redbook Professional Editions
Mike Marotta writes:

Guide Book Professional Edition 2nd ed Bibliomaniacs may obsess over the differences between the first and second editions of A Guide Book of U.S. Coins: Professional Edition. "Appendix A: Countefeit Coins in Today's Market" (attributable to George DuBay), has been replaced with "Appendix: 2009-2010 Market Review, and Looking at 2011." "Appendix B: Gallery of Early U.S. Proof Coins" was removed and not replaced.

The list of contributors changed, which is to be expected, both in the narrative paragraph and the roster. Throughout the book, the column header "Auction Record" is now "Recent Auction Record." The colors of the design theme also are different. Those who know more about Federal Type coinage may identify changes that are more consequential.
