MORE BOOKS WITH NUMISMATIC INSERTS

Neil Shafer writes: "On books with numismatic inserts, for many years
I have had several of a series of books by J. Wilcke on Danish coins
and paper money published in the late 1920s to early 1930s.  Two of
those volumes have paper money inserts attached; these were prepared
especially for the volumes, as I understand it.

Specifically, they are the books covering the periods 1788-1845 and
1845-1914.  The latter also has two very special and great inserts
from the Bank of St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies.  They are the
100 and 500 Dollars of the 1837 issue printed by New England Bank Note
Co.  Both of these pieces have no text on the plain backs (all the
other inserts in both books do have special text on the backs) and they
also have some small spots that I believe are characteristic of some
reprints from old plates.

Also, I have just recently obtained a beautifully prepared book on
the coins and banknotes of Lebanon, printed in 2005.  On the last page
it has five modern Lebanese coins inserted.

Another item is Gene Hessler's recent book, The International Engraver's
Line, which has a number of inserts as well - it's a great work in its
own right and these serve to heighten its stature even more."

Philip Mernick adds: "'British Metallic Coins and Tradesmen's Tokens
with their Values from 1600-1912', G.C. Kent , Chichester, 1913 was
originally sold with a token advertising the book."
