Welcome to the September 11, 2011 issue of The E-Sylum.
Thankfully, there is nothing but numismatic news in this issue, unlike that of ten years ago this week.
This week we open with sad news from the U.K. - Dr. Mark Blackburn of Fitzwilliam Numismatic Collection at Cambridge has passed. Next are notes from numismatic literature dealers Charlie Davis and Fred Lake, followed by two new book announcements and my review of Arthur Tobias' new book relating to W. L. Ormsby.
Other topics include Charles Wormser and the New Netherlands Coin Co., good and bad employees of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the U.S. Mint, inspirations for Hobo Nickel carvings and the legality of collecting Liberty Dollars.
To learn more about John Ford and NASCA's photocopy machine, (very) temporary U.S. Mint facilities, coins of Liberia, and Alaska Fish Money, read on.
Have a great week, everyone!
