Thanks to Dave Perkins for promoting NBS in the December 22, 2013 issue of the JR Newsletter, a publication of the John Reich Collectors Society. Here's what he wrote.
For those JR News readers who are not a member of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS), I’d like to point out that there are two good articles pertaining to early U.S. silver Numismatic Literature in the latest issue of The Asylum, the quarterly Journal of the NBS.
The first article is by Brad Karoleff and is titled, “Limited-Edition Silver Coin References: The Connoisseur’s Library Updated.” This article covers the deluxe editions of early silver references, half dimes to silver dollars, issued since and including the Haseltine Type Table sale catalog. Price ranges are given for deluxe editions from each series.
The second article is by Len Augsburger, and is titled, “Numismatic Literature for the Liberty Seated Half Dime Collector.” Steve Crain contributed to the section on the Valentine half dime book.
I am a former Treasurer of NBS, and am currently on the NBS Board of Governors. I recommend NBS membership to anyone with an interest in research and Numismatic Literature. Here is a link to the NBS website for those wishing to learn more or join NBS: http://www.coinbooks.com
The website has an online index of articles by subject and author. Four issues of The Asylum are published per year.
