I shall waste no time getting into the topic of today's blog.
For the benefit of any new members, I have been working on a massive project as of late, and am starting a website with the basic mission of spreading accurate, free numismatic information online, and bringing in new collectors to the hobby that we love. I have a website: www.numismastery.weebly.com (which is under some behind-the-scenes construction at the moment).
I am currently in the contract phase of a major collaboration, which is extremely exciting! I plan on obtaining a business license shortly, and soon Numismastery will be a recognized, legal entity!! *Celebratory horns honk and balloons rise from the floor*
Along with this â€śbusinessâ€ť, I am creating a â€ścourseâ€ť, or rather, a wealth of material for free viewing pleasure. As part of this, I am currently writing a book, and just got to the halfway mark of 25,000 words! Cannot wait to get it out there to help new numismatists.
I wanted to ask if any of you would be interested in helping us out? We still need a few team members, and I would love to bring along any of you on this journey. We are still in need of a Web Developer, a Head of Advertisement, a Misc. Assistant, and a Chief Video Editor. Of course, currently these would be non-paying jobs, and strictly volunteer work. However, once we get big (which might be sooner than anticipated with this partnership deal in the works) that could change.
Another update, Numismastery will hopefully be accepting donations soon! So save those stimulus checks you don't know what to do with, and put them to good use!
Please privately message me here with any inquiries, or email me at Numismastery101@gmail.com. And don't forget to subscribe to our bi-weekly newsletter edited and compiled by our own CentSearcher! Just simply write an email to NumismasteryEditor@gmail.com saying that you wish to be added to the mailing list.
As for the numismatic portion of today's blog:
The Winged Liberty Dime, often miss-named the "Mercury Dime", does not feature a Roman god! In fact, it is not even a male!! The Winged Liberty Dime features a design of (female) Libery. You can see the resemblance to the Walking Liberty series, which obviously gave inspiration to the dime design. The wings on her cap are representations of free thought. To be stated bluntly, calling them "Mercury Dimes" is an offense to the engravers intentions, and his marvelous work of art!
Catch you all later, my friends!
