BOOKS AND ARTICLES ON MINTING

Larry Gaye writes: "Regarding Jerold Roschwalb's request for books
on coin production, I found a wonderful book - it's called Coins
and Minting by Denis Cooper.  Its published by Shire Publications,
Ltd, the ISBN # is 0-7478-0069-3 and set me back a whole $8.50.
It is an excellent little book that shows the manufacture of coins
from ancient to modern times including the technologies from hammer
and tong to screw presses and beyond.  I recommend it highly as it
is very informative as well as inexpensive."

[I believe Roschwalb has this one  he mentioned a brief pamphlet
by Denis Cooper, published by Shire in England that is very good.
But thanks for sending us more information on it - it sounds like
a great little reference we all should have handy.  -Editor]

Steve Pellegrini writes: "When Dick Johnson recommended Ron Landis
as a contact for die engraving it reminded me that Mr. Landis wrote
an interesting essay titled, 'Hand Engraving and Die Sinking.' This
paper is included in volume 2 of 'The Medal in America', edited by
Alan Stahl. A couple of other references on die engraving can be
found in 'Ancient Methods of Coining' by George F. Hill, and in a
long article by Victor D. Brenner that appeared in 'The Numismatist'.
The Brenner piece is available in an old ANA offprint. I cannot give
more details about it because this very thin booklet is currently
hiding out in my library and will not be found until it is good and
ready to turn up."

Roger deWardt Lane, Hollywood, Florida writes: "Someone was asking
about the minting process - I remembered that I had an article from
Harpers Magazine on the subject on my old computer.  Since it is best
to give you a URL for a link, I did a Google search on ' Harpers
Making Money'  I found two articles copied from the Making of America
ebook project.  I had not seen the first one, as my copy was only the
second article in the series.

Check it out for your self as it had very interesting information -

Go to the bottom of the list of articles to find the two Harpers
and what do you know - the next reference is to The E-Sylum!"
