NOTES FROM E-SYLUM READERS: JUNE 24, 2018
Punctuation on Coin Holders
Kenneth Spindler writes:
For the coin dealer I worked for, I wrote up many full PCGS submission sheets of coins that were to be denoted "Ex-Kings Norton Mint
Collection." Kings Norton is the name of a place, where a metal company acquired minting machinery and struck coins on a contract basis for
Great Britain and numerous other counties. Once the coins all came back with labels that said "Ex-King Norton's Mint Collection," like
England had a King Norton at some point. Maybe he was related to San Francisco's Emperor Norton I.

We received a request for help in identifying this item. Although I lived in Saudi Arabia for two years, I never learned Arabic so told our
researcher that some of your readers might be able to assist her in identifying it.
Can anyone help? What might this be? Thanks. -Editor
A Mystery Piece From Nepal
A web site visitor writes:
My name is Keshav Dhakal. I live in Pokhara City Nepal. It will be super helpful if you could help me with this coin. The size of the coin is 2.5
by 3.5 inches and it weight is 20 grams.
To me, this looks and sounds like a souvenir shop item with no numismatic value. What do readers think? -Editor
