We focus on numismatic literature and research here at The E-Sylum, but if we had a gossip column, it might look something like this. First is an article relating to Dwight Manley, former young numismatist and benefactor of the American Numismatic Association Library.
Sports agent, developer and rare-coin collector Dwight Manley has listed a remodeled house in the Hollywood Hills at $4,995,000.
The updated Spanish-style home, built in 1923, has smart home technology, an oversized media room, three bedrooms and four bathrooms in about 3,000 square feet of living space. The infinity pool features a waterfall.
The city-view house is also available for lease at $25,000 a month.
Manley, 44, has represented NBA stars, including Karl Malone and Dennis Rodman. Manley bought the house from actress Beverly D'Angelo in 2005 for $2.2 million, public records show.

By way of background for the next item, here's an excerpt from a recent press release from Heritage.
The eagerly-awaited new Manhattan gallery and offices of Heritage Auction Galleries will open at 445 Park Avenue (at 57th Street) on Wednesday, September 1, 2010.
The expansion of Heritage, the world's third largest auction house, into the New York City market comes at a time when many major auction firms are contracting. The Dallas-based firm also opened a Beverly Hills, California gallery and salesroom earlier this year.
“The New York City area is home to many of the top collectors and collections, and the center of the art and antique market,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage. “It's a perfect fit with our increasingly expanding services, and the best possible place for us to serve the art and high-end collectible needs of our clients. I can think of nowhere else we'd rather be opening a new gallery right now than right in the heart of Manhattan's auction district.”
One of the most talked about features of Heritage's new Manhattan venue will be the Heritage Window on Park Avenue, which will feature a continually rotating selection from upcoming Heritage auctions, across all of the firm's categories.
Highlights from the inaugural Heritage Window on Park Avenue will include, but are not limited to: Thomas Moran's oil on canvas Venice, Grand Canal, 1903; Howard Terpning's A Winter Trail, 1975; Birger Sandzen's Rock Mountain Landscape, circa 1920; a very rare copy of a 1939 Detective Comics #27, CGC 7.0, the first appearance of “The Batman,” and Garth Williams' aforementioned Charlotte's Web original cover art.
“We expect the Window to become a regular attraction for both collectors and everyday New Yorkers alike,” said Rohan.

57th Street? Hmmm. Isn't there already a coin dealer near there? Oh, I'm sure it's just an innocent coincidence...
But now I hear we're about to have a coin dealer "show down" in the Big Apple. Heritage has a grand reception scheduled for October 6th. Now guess what - Stack's announced THEY are going to have a special one-of-a-kind reception too! Guess when? At precisely the same time. Sounds like High Noon on 57th Street. One reader called it a "numismatic gigantomachia!" Should be entertaining... “Drop your cocktail weenies, varmints!”
