This week we open with a short note on the Kolbe-Fanning New York sale, information on five new numismatic books, and a review. The big news comes next - there will be some sales of material from the Eric P. Newman collection, a treasure some 90 years in the making.

Other topics include the ANS Library, the Adams Betts medal collection, Jules Fonrobert, Harold Bareford, Ted Craige, Edward Newell, and the 2013 Presidential Inaugural medal.

To learn more about the Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797, the Carter Glass mint medal, pinscratches, faceplates, inflation money, and how J.P. Morgan's coin loophole saved the U.S. in 1895, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
