This week we open with some more information on the NBS annual meeting, and an announcement of the next Kolbe & Fanning numismatic literature sale. Next up are announcements of a record number of new numismatic books for bibliophiles, researchers, and collectors alike.

Other topics include the numismatic legacy of L. G. Kaufman, coins from the Eric Newman collection, the Northwest Territorial Mint, and numismatics on exhibit at the National Museum of Ireland.

To learn more about plugged coins, John Story Jenks, Wisconsin Military and Civil Medals, communion tokens, and Papal Bullas, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
