BOOK REVIEW: PETERSON BUST HALF GUIDE 

   Michael E. Marotta sends the following book review of 
   THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ATTRIBUTING BUST 
   HALF DOLLARS by Glenn R. Peterson, MD. (2000. 
   Money Tree, Rocky River, Ohio): 

   "This book belongs on the shelf of every collector of 
   American coins. Brad Karoleff's "Introduction" alone, 
   explaining the history of the coin is worth the cover price. 
   Since modern collecting leans heavily to errors and varieties, 
   any collector of any series can benefit from the scientific 
   methodology for identifying die marriages. Dr. Peterson's 
   work sets the standard for the coming century. 

   Collectors of Bust Half Dollars are close on the heels of 
   Early American Copper collectors at setting the pace for 
   studious examination of numismatic materials.  This book 
   narrows that gap."
