This week we open with some NBS business, followed by announcements of two unusual numismatic books. Next up are reviews of two books on U.S. colonial coins, an obituary of Seleucid coin expert Arnold Spaer, and more great information on Sarah Sophia Banks, builder of a magnificent collection of early U.S. coins and medals.
Other topics include chopmarks, Stuart Mosher, unpublished numismatic manuscripts, Confederate currency, and e-books.
