"I was talking with a friend who is undertaking a research project and trying to answer some questions he had, when I remembered the NBS Wiki and, in particular, its bibliography. This is a really useful resource and one that unfortunately is under-utilized. I tend to forget it's out there, and it obviously took a lot of work to put it together (I had nothing to do with it). If you could give it some exposure through The E-Sylum, that would be great."
Indeed. While overshadowed by the newer and much larger Newman Portal, the Numismatic Bibliomania Society's website Wiki section is a wealth of great information, well organized. Built with the help of NBS members and E-Sylum readers led mainly by Tom Wetter it's still available on the website and sees a decent amount of traffic from Internet searchers.
The bibliography has 105 sections including General Information, Ancient Coinages, Medieval, Modern, Paper Money and Grading.
