For the second week in a row I've been unable to catch up with the inflow of submissions. My apologies to those who sent material that didn't make it into this issue. I'll see what I can do next week.
This week we open with two new books, background on the Guide Book of Lincoln Cents, a long-sought photo of William Barber, the Burns Library, and an update from the Newman Numismatic Portal.
Other topics this week include chronograms, Guttag Brothers storecards, collector A. L. Fisher, the Hong Kong Coin Show, the Albany Church Penny, the greek Half-Drachmai banknote, currency identifiers, and a Liberian banknote fraud scheme.
To learn more about the U.S. Half Cent, Treasury Notes of the War of 1812, a Golden Age of Numismatic Editorship, the Panama-Pacific Exposition Award medal, a Jefferson Head cent electrotype, the Ghost Oak Tree shilling, the exergual line, the blobular mintmark, and the best 1804 cent that $15 can buy, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
