    Len Augsburger Visits Homren Numismatic Library
    On Friday I left work a little early and headed into Washington D.C. to pick up Len Augsburger. It was his last night in town, and I'd invited him to dinner with my family and to visit my library.

    My route swung past the U.S. Capitol building, with its bright spiffy renovated dome, then past some of the Smithsonian Museums. On a crowded streetcorner I yelled over to Len, and he crossed the street and got in.

    There was a lot of rush hour traffic and we crawled. But it gave us time to catch up on the week's events and plan some upcoming efforts for the Newman Numismatic Portal.

Boggs personalized it by creating a serial number incorporating Homren’s initials. The completed transaction left Homren with questions: Did he offer too much (or too little), why did he buy this particular work of art and how hard is it for an artist to sell his

    COINWEEK ON E-SYLUM AND SWIATEK'S 1981 COMMEMORATIVE BOOK

    04/14/2013

    Highlight: Wayne Homren is the editor of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society's weekly e-publication, the E-Sylum, which is always chock-full of fascinating information and reader commentary. Visit http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum/index.html for more information. First of all, thank you for the work you do every week. Hubert and I are big fans of your eclectic, almost omnivorous newsletter. The E-Sylum is a frequent source of inspiration, constantly pointing out fruitful new avenues for us and our writing. Also, we collect books on coins just as avidly as we collect the coins themselves. So we were thrilled _ THRILLED _ at the handful of recent mentions and excerpts we've garnered. Predictably, this inspired us to do even more thinking on the topics we'd already addressed. And before we get to the crux

    INTERVIEW: E-SYLUM EDITOR WAYNE HOMREN

    02/09/2014

    Highlight: INTERVIEW: E-SYLUM EDITOR WAYNE HOMREN http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v17n06a11.html E-Sylum advertiser Coin Supply Planet has published an interview with Yours Truly. It's posted on their web site. Here's an excerpt, complete with my out-of-date picture (my fault, not theirs - I don't have a newer one. So mentally airbrush some grey around the temples). -Editor Q: This is traditionally the very first question we ask on every interview. Please tell us a little bit about how you developed interest in numismatics. Was there someone or something of significance that played a role?
