NBS web master Bruce Perdue also serves as the webmaster for the Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS). He's a dependable as the sun rising in the morning, and we can always count on him to keep our web site and E-Sylum archive up-to-date. He has thrown his hat in the ring to run for Governor of CSNS. Good luck in the election!

New subscriber Luke Griffin writes:

I just finished reading the entire newsletter from Sunday. What a wonderful publication and group you have going. Even though there was a lot in there about American coins, of which I know almost nothing, I found each article fascinating, and enjoyed going to some of the web sites that were mentioned.

I sent another blurb to the colonial coin chat group about subscribing to The E-Sylum, like I do several times a year. Hopefully some will take my advice. Not subscribing to The E-Sylum is like seeing a $50 bill on the ground and walking by without picking it up! Thanks for all you do here!

Thanks for the kind words. It's always fun to put together these issues - E-Sylum readers are the best folks around, and there is never any shortage of interesting numismatic topics to discuss.

This week we open with SIX new book announcements and reviews, followed by some great news from Len Augsburger and Joel Orosz on their research into the first Philadelphia Mint.

Other topics this week include chromed cents, paper coins, a hoard of Hudson's Bay Company tokens and William Harnett. To learn about chrome cents, woodpecker scalps, and an epiphany on the value of money, read on.
