NOTES FROM E-SYLUM READERS: DECEMBER 5, 2010

Joe Boling writes:

On Whitman's "Vault" books, they also did World War II: Saving the Reality, A Collector's Vault. It has an egregious numismatic error on page 56, where it shows two 20-mark notes, one allegedly a British forgery of the German original - dated 1910. Those notes were wiped out by the 1923 hyperinflation, and would never have been a subject of British forgery in WWII (and as far as in know, were not such a subject during WWI, either).

On another topic Joe adds:

France100 Euros reverse The data list on that circulating gold 100 euro piece from France gives weights in grams and ounces - the latter being avoirdupois. The troy weight is 0.0997oz. With gold around $1380 and the euro at $1.32 tonight, the face value is under bullion value. They should be selling out. They are certainly not going to circulate.

Regarding Dave Bowers' query,

I don't have the equipment that does this but years ago used LP2CD.com to transfer music from older LP records to audio CDs. They apparently can do transfers from all types of media, including wire recordings. If this is the same technology the transfers are a little pricey, but might be a possibility.

To visit the LP2CD wire recordings page, see: www.lp2cd.com/wire_recordings.htm

Dave Bowers responded to Tim's note and will follow up this lead. Thanks! It would be great to hear the voices from the numismatic past. -Editor
