Thanks to all of this week's contributors for their patience while I worked through
the blogger's nightmare, a computer crash. On Monday evening I found myself staring at
the fateful Microsoft Blue Screen of Death - my old laptop was no more. Luckily, most of
my E-Sylum tools are web-based, and I have web acccess to my email accounts. I also use
a service that automatically backs up my data files. It took some time to collect the
needed pieces, but it all came together in plenty of time, thanks to my wife's handy computer.
Thank goodness the crash came just
AFTER publishing an issue, not just before a deadline. I've got a spiffy new laptop
now, and although my environment isn't back to 100% yet, all the essentials are there.
My apologies if any submissions slipped through the cracks - please resend them and we'll
catch up next week.
This week we open with information on four new numismatic books and an interview
with Mark Borckardt of Heritage Auctions.
Other topics include the "Lucky Coin" submarine, stickered silver dollars, and the Paris Mint.
To learn more about war savings stamps,
the private Franklin Mint Collectors Society Club Room, and a "Gold Delivery Book"
containing original handwritten records from the San Francisco Mint
, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
