First, thanks to David Ganz, Dave Bowers, Greg Adams and others for their kind comments on recent issues. Knowing the publication is anticipated and read helps keep me going each week.

New subscribers this week include Brian Kendrella of Stacks Bowers, and Janet Bazzone. Welcome aboard! We have 1,680 email subscribers, plus 247 followers on Facebook.

This week we open with word on the latest issue of our print journal, and sad news of the loss of another U.S. numismatic giant. Next up are announcements of two new books and the latest issue of moneta.

Other topics include the ANS Library, an 1604 Henry IIII medal, Medieval European Coinage, speakers at the PAN and Baltimore shows, the stepping of the mast ceremony, and lots from upcoming Heritage and Stack's Bowers sales.

To learn more about the Rufus Tyler letter on the 1838-O Half Dollar, an 11,000-piece collection of Civil War Tokens, and Jeremiah Colburn's Willow Tree Shilling, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
