Horacio Morero is the editor of El Sitio, the club publication of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática. He submitted this summary of the contents of the latest issue. Thanks!
With the publishing of “El Sitio” N° 24, the electronic magazine of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática complied six consecutive years maintaining its quarterly frequency. This September
edition contains 26 pages, two numismatic articles and a lot of information. The cover of the “El Sitio” announces the “Jornadas Uruguayas de Numismática 2017”. This Numismatic Convention will be
held in the Holiday Inn Hotel, in Montevideo, Uruguay, on October 13th, 14th and 15th 2017. This year the Convention will bear the name of Emilio Paoletti, a well-loved and prolific numismatist,
deceased recently in Argentina where he lived more than 50 years.
The first numismatic article, by Hugo Mancebo Decaux (“Hipótesis sobre el número de estrellas que lleva el Peso del Sitio en su reverso”) is related to the number of stars that the famous “Peso
del Sitio” coin carries. The second one, by Horacio Morero Ferrero, presents the eighth series of “Identificando fichas de esquila” (“Identifying ranch tokens”). Morero's study says it is close
to identifying 100 shearing tokens.
In addition, “El Sitio” gives us varied information about two new Uruguayan commemorative coins; new books and conferences in the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática house.
