ANXIOUSLY AWAITED BOOKS: SO-CALLED DOLLARS, CHERRYPICKER'S GUIDE

Steve Pellegrini writes: "Last week in Coin World there was an
article about the currently very hot 'So-Called-Dollar' series of
U.S. commemorative medals. In the article the writer mentions that
a new book about the series is in the works. Has there ever been
a numismatic book which more needed to be written? The standard
reference by Hibler and Kappen, as great as it is, came out in
1963 and is oh so woefully incomplete and out of date. I only hope
this work won't be years making its debut.

Speaking of delayed book debuts, has anybody heard any news that's
new regarding Volume 2 of Fivaz and Stanton's 'Cherrypickers Guide
To Rare Die Varities'? The last I heard the briars and brambles of
tangled red tape that was holding up the book had recently been
unwound and the book could be expected any day now. That update,
also reported in Coin World, appeared many months ago. Still no book.

My little vested interest in this book concerns one of the longest
held group of coins in my collection. This is a run of Washington
Quarter die varities. Some of these varieties were unlisted in the
old 'Cherrypickers Guide' and will hopefully have made the grade
in the new edition. I wait anxiously."
