ADAMS INDIAN PEACE MEDAL BOOK PUBLISHED  

   James C. Spilman writes: "I  have just received a copy of 
   John W. Adams' new book “Indian Peace Medals” or 
   “His Majesties Sometimes Allies.” This book is an absolute 
   gem in both content and as an example of excellence in the 
   bookmaker’s craft and represents a stellar addition to the 
   numismatic resources now available on early American 
   numismatics.  

   Adams has departed from the current habits of modern 
   numismatic writers by presenting in-depth historical 
   backgrounds to accompany each of the medallic types of 
   Indian Peace Medals produced during the American “colonial” 
   era as well as the War of 1812 era.  A substantive number 
   of historical inaccuracies of earlier researchers and 
   writers have been corrected in his book.  

   For those of us with an interest in the Indian Peace Medals 
   in America - we have a new “bible”."  

   500 copies were printed by George Frederick Kolbe.
