First, our sympathies to literature dealer John Burns - his mother passed away Saturday morning. She was 95. His father lived to 96, and John's shooting for the big 100.

This week we open with a reminder from Fred Lake about his upcoming sale, and word from Stack's Bowers on the availability of the latest hardbound catalogs of the John J. Ford sales. Next up are three new numismatic books and two reviews.

Other topics include Heath's Counterfeit Detectors, Bryan dollars, Col. Green and the Charles W. Morgan, the Royal Mint Museum and Arthur Braden Coole.

To learn more about Cratex sticks, The Decorah Numismatic Journal, Sheldon’s copy of Würtzbach, Eric Newman's proof 1818 quarter, the Los Austrias coppers, how to turn a smartphone into a microscope, Royal Mint coin designer John Bergdahl, Basquiat's Monticello, and the Solid Gold Toilet, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
