CALIFORNIA COINS AND ASSAYERS PUBLISHED 

   The long-awaited book by Dan Owens on "California 
   Coiners and Assayers", also published by Bowers and 
   Merena ("A Collector's Universe Company") in 
   conjunction with Stack's, began shipping last week. 
   The importance of the 448-page book is noted in the 
   Introduction by Q. David Bowers: 

   "Every so often in numismatics a work is published 
   that breaks new ground.  After much unceasing, 
   unstinting effort involving travel, correspondence, 
   and other communications, and delving into 
   long-forgotten directories and archives, Dan Owens 
   has created a master work which will be used in the 
   future as a source and standard reference.  Now, 
   for the first time in numismatic and western history, 
   in one encyclopedic dictionary is told the story of 
   coiners, assayers, and others who created gold in the 
   form of coins and ingots, for use in commerce during 
   one of the most pivotal eras of American history."
