DAHLONEGA MINT BOOK UPDATED 

   An article in the July 4, 2000 issue of Numismatic News notes 
   the publication of a revised edition of  "The Neighborhood 
   Mint: Dahlonega in the Age of Jackson" by Sylvia Galley 
   Head and Elizabeth W. Etheridge.  "Beyond the original content 
   from the 1986 printing, this publisher added several high-quality 
   plates that include a newly discovered picture of the mint. 
   Beyond this, a set of color photographs display a nine-coin 
   set from the mint."   For ordering information, contact the 
   publisher, Gold Rush Gallery, at (888) 740-1774. 

   While we don't ordinarily reference commercial web sites, 
   here are some interesting Dahlonega Mint-related items 
   including the above-mentioned discovery photo (circa 1877), 
   and a "Letter from C.C. Memminger, Secretary of the Treasury 
   of the Confederate States of America, to Georgia Governor 
   Joseph E. Brown, April 3, 1861, concerning proposals that the 
   CSA continue operating the Dahlonega Mint after declaration 
   of War (Written slightly more than a week before War was 
   declared)."
