This week we open with information on two upcoming numismatic literature sales, two new books and a lecture relating to numismatic literature.
Other topics this week include several reader queries on topics from Civil War scrip vignettes to Cal Wilson's Numismatic repository.
You know, I honestly never know which E-Sylum item is going to draw a good response from readers. I've long since given up predicting. But E-Sylum readers can always be counted on to provide the most interesting and authoritative information on any topic under the sun. Be sure to read Dick Johnson's submission, a fabulous summary of coloring on coins and medals, and Ursula Kampmann's notes on Roman "brothel tokens".
To learn more about spintriae, enamelling, pad printing, 1990s Russian scrip, Colonial Jack's Long Walk, the Decadrachm of Akragas and how to tell a cow from a bull, read on.
Have a great week, everyone!
