Howard Cohen has been in regular contact with AOL for weeks on the issue of non-receipt of our newsletter. Thanks!
One AOL subscriber reported they've been getting their issues normally, but most others continue to report it's been weeks since they've received their E-Sylum issue via email. Some of these folks have given up on AOL and switched to another email provider.
I tried a workaround by forwarding a copy of last week's issue to all 199 AOL subscribers, but ran into a different problem with Gmail; it would only send the first 100. I sent the other 99 Wednesday morning, as they told me my sending privileges would be shut off for 24 hours. I'll break the list into smaller batches this week.
A number of readers have switched to other email addresses.

Frankly, I haven't opened AOL in years, the mail is just all forwarded to my Gmail account!
I'm not really sure why AOL still exists -- I kept the address just for the ease of customers who have had it for 15+ years, but it's slow, unreliable and almost to the point it can be considered antique (of course, that means in five more years cool hipsters will want one just for the ironic flavor it adds to their lives!).
AOL headquarters is right down the road from my house. I should go over there and kick someone in the behind.

Better a glass of wine or a brew:)
I'm not a regular drinker, but perhaps I should start. Anyway...
This week we open with a reminder of the Kolbe & Fanning sale closing July 18th, three new books and a review.
Other topics include numismatic libraries and bibliographies, J.V. McDermott and his 1913 Liberty Nickel, and the national Medals of Arts and Humanities.
To learn more about Communion Tokens, Laverne and Shirley, Bibliotheca Bibliothecarum, the Yap Island license plate, and the “Dr L. Roper.” countermark enigma, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
