On Handling Coin Slabs
Alan Weinberg writes:
The unusual and welcome variation in exhibiting and handling the Tettenhorst half cents was that each slab was isolated and protected by a manila paper "sleeve" so that the slabs would not scuff up against each other and obscure the half cent's condition and detail. This was not done with the Walt Husak large cents or, I believe, the Holmes large cents and there were negative comments made about this seeming lack of care. Good to see that public demand was not ignored. I wish our governments would be so responsive.

ANS Library Duplicate Available for Pick-Up
In the February 2014 ANS Enews, the American Numismatic Society announced:
The ANS Library has a reprint copy of the Bibliographie der deutschen Zeitschriften-literatur to give away. Interested individuals must arrange for pick-up, although library staff can be available to help with the loading process (There are over 100 volumes, so it would take a car or multiple trips to pick it up). If you are interested, please contact Elizabeth Hahn Benge at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 212-571-4470, ext. 170.
A great opportunity for researchers in the New York area. I confirmed with Elizabeth that the offer is available to anyone, not just ANS members.
Mark Twain and the Million Pound Bank Note
Dave Ginsburg writes:
Great edition of The E-Sylum, as usual, but. . .
How is it you can mention the million pound bank note and not mention Mark Twain?
Well, we have mentioned Twain's great story in the past - see below for links. Dave also supplied these links to the Wikipedia page describing the short story and one to a copy of the book on Google Books. Thanks!

Query: Kazakhstan Golden Warrior Coin Image Sought
Via Arthur Shippee, Adrienne Mayor, Stanford Classics Department writes:
For my forthcoming book, The Amazons: Lives and Legends of Warrior Women across the Ancient World (Princeton Univ. Press), I am looking for a high resolution image of this coin (300 dpi would be ideal). ). I will be happy to acknowledge your help and give credit in the book.
Arthur Shippee adds:
This is a Kazakhstan coin depicting the Golden Warrior
(Chieftain) of Issyk, issued in 2011, I believe.
is there an international association of coin clubs, which might have a connection to Kazakh collectors?
