A Washington Double Head Cent Find
Washington double head cent David Pickup writes:

I found a Washington double head cent in my local dealer's rubbish tin on Saturday. Similar to the attached one though not quite so good condition.

Nice find! -Editor

Dave Alexander on the Blizzard of 1957
Dave Alexander writes:

Great memoir by Harvey Stack about the blizzard of 1957. When that storm hit I was attending third grade at Saint Gregory the Great school in Brooklyn. Had just gotten a collecting nudge from a small group of Indian Head Cents from Joe and Al's Fish Market on Kingston Avenue but would not really start collecting for two more years and that in Miami. Harvey has a marvelous memory.

Binion's Current $Million Display
Chriss Hoffman writes:

Binion's million dollar display I was interested in the Binion's Million dollar display. I had a photo taken with the original horseshoe display full of $10,000 bills. I looked up the current display and I found a page on Binion's site where they offer a photo opportunity for free daily with the $million dollar display. Nowhere near as an effective display as the old horseshoe full of $10K notes.

An Evening at the Fed
American Numismatic Association Numismatic Instructor Sam Gelberd writes:

2010-evening-at-fed I just wanted to add that I was at the Denver Branch of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank a few months ago for something called, “An Evening at the Fed.” This is a dinner held for professionals within the education community (i.e., teachers) and they not only provide dinner for these educators, but also a lot of materials that could be useful in the classroom to facilitate lessons – and this is available at NO cost to the teachers!

The FED also provides lecturers to inform teachers about recent goings-on within the economic community at these dinners, and they also give a brief tour of their money museum. It doesn’t matter how much collecting experience a teacher has – this is primarily conducted to provide materials for teachers to enhance their lesson plans, whether they are economic, historical, et cetera in nature.

Please tell as many K-12 teachers as you can; no sense in hiding this “secret” about the FED from them! Click on the following link for additional information about this dinner (held once a year at various FED facilities; I’ve also attend this at the Atlanta Fed Branch in Miami, FL.) : http://www.kc.frb.org/events/eventdetail.cfm?event=8D5EB967737EEB1BF73C37ED1EFE1D6D

CryptoLabs Developing Bitcoin Wallet

Nick Graver forwarded this story from the Rochester, NY Democrat and Chronicle about a startup company in the electronic money space. Thanks. -Editor

Stephen Schultz, who co-founded Pictometry International almost 20 years ago, has been named chief technology officer for CryptoLabs, a fast rising startup company at Rochester Institute of Technology's Venture Creations business incubator.

The company is developing a bitcoin wallet, a sophisticated piece of hardware the size of a credit card that allows users to send and receive digital currency.
