HIGLEY HISTORY BOOK  

   Back in the September 27, 1999 issue of COIN World, a 
   letter to the Editor by Christopher S. Riley, Chief Guide at the 
   Old New-Gate Prison and Copper Mine Museum in East 
   Granby, CT, mentioned a book which should be of interest 
   to collectors of U.S. Colonial coinage.   The letter commented 
   favorably on subscriber Dan Friedus' August 23rd article on 
   Higley coppers.   The museum honors America's first chartered 
   copper mine (1707), and Connecticut's first colonial prison 
   (1773),  used by the Continental Congress.  

   "We also carry copies of William Donovel's 1998 history of 
   "New Gate," which has an informative chapter on Dr. Samuel 
   Higley, his mine, and his tokens."  

   According to a Connecticut tourism web site, the address of 
   the museum is Newgate Road , East Granby, CT  06026. 
   Telephone:  (860) 653-3563.
