  • Elizabeth Hahn - The 2013 NBS Symposium: Karl Moulton and the "Franklin Hoard"
  • Steve M. Tompkins - Book Review: The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796– 1797, by Jon P. Amato

After the long delay in assembling this oversized issue, the next two should appear relatively quickly.

And finally, thanks to Bill Malkmus, there is also an index supplement at the printers covering volumes 26 to 30 of The Asylum.

Remember, while The E-Sylum is free to all, only paid members of the Numismatic Bibliomania society receive The Asylum. Membership is currently only $15 to addresses in the U.S. But hurry! As noted below, a rate increase is on the way. -Editor

David Yoon adds:

According to Joel Orosz's report of the annual meeting, the dues will be changed, effective January 1, 2014 to $20 U.S. and $25 foreign. People who sign up before that date get the old rate.
