NUMISMATIC WORKS OF FRED REINFELD 

   Leonard D. Augsberger published "The Numismatic Works 
   of Fred Reinfeld: A Biography and Bibliography" in the 
   November-December 2000 issue of Rare Coin Review 
   (#138). 

   "Although the name of Fred Reinfeld is not in the forefront 
   of American numismatics today, decades ago he played a 
   very important part in the popularization of the hobby. 
   His books about rare coins were sold widely and received 
   a very appreciative audience." 

   Numismatic bibliophiles may not be aware that Reinfeld 
   is also "considered the most prolific author of American 
   chess books, with over 200 titles to his credit.... 
   Reinfeld's strength as a chess author was his ability to 
   explain abstract ideas in layman's terms." 

   Augsberger's article details information on all of Reinfeld's 
   nineteen numismatic works, including population data 
   derived from numismatic literature auctions and fixed 
   price lists.
