Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Here's hoping you didn't mess it up. You know, I bought a very nice card for my wife a
couple weeks ago, but now I'll be damned if I can find it (so I ran out and got a new one). I guess there's a plus side to shopping
at the last minute, like my sons and father-in-law, who had me take them to the card shop yesterday on the way home from a movie.
This week we open with an update from Kolbe & Fanning, a new book and one review. Next up are four items related to the digitization of
numismatic literature and our regular section of notes from readers.
Other topics include Littleton's Collector Stories Video contest, how Matthew Stickney acquired U.S. proof coins and his 1815 Half
Eagle, B. Max Mehl's buildings and early U.S. collector Benjamin Watkins.
To learn more about an unusual "Half Dime" token, Mehl's grave marker, the Bechtler Mint, the globetrotting 1794 dollar,
numismatics of the Olympic Games, the Peruvian Two Peso gold pattern, the T. Parker token of Norwich, England, charge coins, Tom Thumb, the
Ho Chi Minh City Club, the 2016 World Money Fair, and the Sextus Pompey aureus, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
