NOTES FROM JOEL OROSZ
NBS Board member Joel Orosz writes:
"I enjoyed this week's E-Sylum as much as ever. Two quick responses:
I think that the gold samples in Eckfeldt and DuBois would be difficult to observe under a "Formica" disk. The disks were made of mica.
With regard to coin thefts, I wrote about the theft of the Tammany Museum's coin collection in New York City, in "The Great Coin Heist of 1796", which was published in The Numismatist in February, 1999."
