NOTES FROM E-SYLUM READERS: NOVEMBER 14, 2010
The E-Sylum (11/14/2010)
Regarding the images of three-cent Feuchtwanger tokens, Myron Xenos writes:
I see in the photographs several discrepancies which I don't think are caused by the digitalization. Tail-to-edge and other space differences seem evident to me. Of course I am older now and my eyes aren't that great. That's why I gave up on coppers. Gold and silver are easier on old eyes.

Just when some are initiating their Facebook presences (Kolbe and Fanning last week) I am closing my Facebook account. The outfit has been just too cavalier about protecting user information - it's asking for trouble, in my opinion, for someone concerned about security and privacy to use that service.
Regarding this statement in the American Antiquarian Society item on a piece of baseball-related ephemera, "Advertisers have long used the image of popular baseball players and baseball teams to hock their wares. ", Joe adds:
hock [?!?] Putting them into pawn? I had to look carefully to make sure this was not your choice of language.

I have been reading through my back issues hence this slightly late reply. You mention the John Lennon "coin" and the impression may have been given that it is a UK coin. It will, in fact, be made by the Royal Mint for the small island of Alderney, off the coast of France.
