New subscribers this week include Lou Sutton and William Roberson. Welcome aboard! We have 1,676 email subscribers, plus 247 followers on Facebook.

Time didn't allow me to get everyone's contributions into this week's newsletter, nor did I manage to write up a Numismatic Diary or book review. Sorry, folks, but some of these will roll over into subsequent issues. Still, we've got a jam-packed issue this week with interesting topics from all over. And I got to watch my middle son solve Rubik's Cube over and over all morning and play restaurant with my daughter all afternoon and see my eldest son's basketball game this evening.

We open with a note from Charlie Davis on his upcoming numismatic literature sale, and information on three new books. Next up are notes on the American Numismatic Society library. Other topics include the Bechtler House, numismatic indexes, and Victoria Cross and RSPCA medals.

To learn more about Gordon Frost's Seawall, F. J. Klein, Jean Ironside's Britannia pose, Chinese coins in Bali, the cake made of dollars, and flussgolddukaten, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
