OTHER BOOKS CONTAINING GOLD SAMPLES

Referring to last week's mention of the 1849 Eckfeldt-DuBois
"Manual of Gold and Silver Coins of All Nations", Fred Holabird
writes: "There are no other books that I know of with gold samples
included except Eckfeldt. Several others have sold privately over
the past couple of years, but this is a true rarity. Some of the
books do not still have the gold present, so they obviously sell
for significantly less. At one point, John Marshall's autobiography
was reported as having a gold nugget attached to the frontis, but
I have not seen this."

Denis Loring notes: "The 93rd issue of the newsletter of the
Chicago Coin Club is entitled "Gold Dust Currency," and a small
sample of gold dust is attached!"

Mark Borckardt writes: "Dave Bowers' book on the Central America,
the deluxe edition that was sold with the ingots, had a small
gold sample inside the front cover."
