I'm publishing an early and abbreviated issue today due to an internet outage. I'm completing the issue at our nearby Panera so we can take my wife and her Mom out for a nice Mother's Day dinner tonight.

I'll work on getting some of the backlog into next week's issue, but be aware that issue may be late - we'll all be on the road for a family wedding. Life gets in the way of numismatics sometimes, but keep your emails and submissions coming.

Thank you for reading The E-Sylum. If you enjoy it, please send me the email addresses of friends you think may enjoy it as well and I'll send them a subscription with your compliments. Contact me at anytime regarding your subscription, or questions, comments or suggestions about our content.

Lots of twos today. This week we open with two new books, two reviews, and two great additions to the Newman Numismatic Portal. Other topics this week include two new museum donations, early calendar medals, the Eckfeldt family collection, chopmarked trade dollars and cast copper coins, and toy banks.

To learn more about 1802 Half Dimes, Ken Lowe, Walter Gould, hemerologe medals, Dahlonega Mint gold, the Young America Furnace Company, ‘getting Winstoned’ and the King of England who could barely speak English, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
