MORE ON BOOKS WITH NUMISMATIC INSERTS

Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing writes: "On the subject of books
with numismatic inserts, Whitman has published two versions of Arthur
Friedberg's Coins of the Bible. One features three replica coins
inserted in the hard cover (a Tribute Penny, a gold daric of Persia,
and a Widow's Mite). The other version has those three, plus replicas
of the shekel and half shekel of Tyre, and a lepton.

Later this year we'll publish Money of the American Civil War, which
includes three replica coins inserted in the cover."

Dave Lange writes: "When the first edition of my Buffalo Nickel book
was published in 1992, I had prepared six copies in leather with two
nickels each mounted in the front cover to display obverse and reverse.
These were then covered with one half of a Kointain to protect them. I
still have one copy, and I know of only one that has been offered for
sale since being purchased by the original owner. This was Armand
Champa's copy, which was sold with the rest of his library by Bowers &
Merena."
