ANOTHER REVIEW: FRICKE'S COLLECTING CONFEDERATE PAPER MONEY

John and Nancy Wilson forwarded their review of the
Pierre Fricke's "Collecting Confederate Paper Money:
A Complete and Fully Illustrated Guide to All Confederate
Note Types and Varieties".  They write:

"This hard bound fully illustrated 800 page book contains
both full color and  enlarged black and white pictures
of each of the Criswell Type notes and also some color
varieties of some notes.  The book contains much original
information from sources including the late Dr. Douglas J.
Ball.  Many of the rare types have the known surviving
serial numbers as well as some condition census information.
Prices in several conditions are also included.

When we received the new reference by Pierre we could
hardly put it down.  We were amazed at the valuable
information contained within the pages of this important
reference.   We have a nice type set of CSA issues, not
including the rare First Series, Essays, or Indian Princess
note(s).  This reference helped us find some scarce varieties
we never would have known about if it wasn't available.
This CSA reference will add information greatly needed by
the collectors of these important numismatic items.  It was
obvious that the Author, Pierre Frick spent countless hours
in the research and production of this Confederate States
of America reference.

This reference could also be "The Book of the Year" because
of the important information contained as well as the high
quality printing and pictures.  It will be a must for all
collectors of Confederate States of America Issues.  It
now takes up a prominent location in our Numismatic Library.
Visit  www.smytheonline.com for more information on the book."
