Dansco Albums Wanted
Justin Hinh writes:
"I recently joined the NBS. I am a massive fan of Dansco albums and their history. I am creating a preservation project to collect one of each Dansco ever produced to preserve for future generations. Here is my current collection! I have been struggling to find certain albums and fellow NBS members seem perfect to know where I can find them"
The late David Lange would be thrilled with the project, and I encourage E-Sylum readers to help if they can.

More Coins in Movies

"Do you have "The World the Flesh and the Devil" from 1959 on the "Coins in Movies" list?
Harry Belafonte flips a Franklin half."
Never heard of that one! Thanks. I can also report that a significant plot point in the new Tom Hanks film "A Man Called Otto" hinges on a silver 1964 Washington Quarter.

Contemporary Circulating Counterfeits Group Formed
John Lorenzo writes:
"A new Facebook group was created for Contemporary Circulating Counterfeits (CCC's) - the academia types (i.e., the good ones) to help people understand the difference between the historical types and current Chinese base metal junk. With all the bad news these bring I felt a new Facebook channel covering all the good ones from ancients to 20th U.S. Federal was needed. Currently myself, Jeff Rock (C4) and Winston Zack are Moderators. We are looking for an ancient expert to join this group. A large time frame from Ancients to Modern should bring some excitement or something different to the numismatic marketplace. In one day we were almost 50 members strong."
On the page the About section states "This group is about the study and discussion of good counterfeits of historical importance and termed contemporary circulating counterfeits."
When I checked earlier today there were 78 members.

1883 Railway Appliance Exposition Medal Information Sought
John Swindling writes:
"My name is John Swindling and I am 8 years old. I'm researching about the 1883 Railway Appliance Exposition, to learn more about an award medal. I found it listed in auction lots as Harkness Nat-220, but I don't have a copy of the Agricultural and Mechanical Society Award Medals of The United States book to see the medal on that page. Can anyone reading this help me out? Thanks for helping me with my research project!"
John's dad Jeff Swindling adds:
"We recently purchased a bronze medal from the exposition, and John is having a great time researching the old newspapers and advertisements that mention his medal and the company that won it! Thanks to fellow numismatist and train enthusiast George Cuhaj for starting us on this adventure!"
Great project. Who can help?
