New subscribers this week include Anthony D'Anna, courtesy of Russ Sears and Jan Bernhard of the Netherlands. Welcome aboard! We have 1,665 email subscribers, plus 242 followers on Facebook.

We're back! But due to my family vacation, this week's issue is late. I haven't been able to respond to everyone's emails yet, but should be able to get many of them into the next issue. We should be back to our regular publishing schedule Sunday. Thank you for your patience.

This week we open with three new numismatic books, word of the death of error book author 'Lonesome' John Devine, and answers to our "Babies on Coins" quiz.

Other topics include the 1968 Merkin sale half dimes, $3 and $4 gold coins, George Walton's gold, and Olympic gold medals containing meteorite fragments.

To learn more about “an excrescence”, Sir Isaac Newton's death mask, John Kraljevich's new web site, David Lange's "Men in Black" traveling companions and Walter Chondrite, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
