New subscribers this week include Tom Bilotta. Welcome aboard! We have 1,663 email subscribers, plus 241 followers on Facebook.

TAKE NOTE: Due to a family vacation, this week's issue is being published early, and next week's issue may be skipped or late, although I hope to publish an abbreviated one if time allows. Also note that Flickr (the web site which hosts our images) is down for maintenance tonight. If images aren't appearing in your issue, try again tomorrow. Sorry for any inconvenience.

This week we open with an update on NBS and other numismatic book events at the upcoming ANA convention. Next, a report from Fred Lake and word of a new book by Ken Rendell. Other topics include coins traceable to Ed Cogan's first sale, 1894-S Dimes and babies on coins.

To learn more about Mickey Turoff, the North West Company’s 1820 Beaver token, how to find out more about when and where the 1792 half dismes were struck, and the tavern-keeper who offered to mount a coin dealer's head behind his bar, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
