NEW BOOK: SOUTHERN STATES CURRENCY BY HUGH SHULL

Whitman Publishing is releasing a new book by Hugh Shull titled
"A Guide Book of Southern States Currency."  Illustrated mainly
from the collection of Gene D. Mintz, the book should be a welcome
addition in an area where most of the key references have long been
out of print.  From the company's press release:

"Building on the classic foundation laid by Colonel Grover Criswell,
Whitman Publishing presents an authoritative 448-page guide to the
state-issued money of the South, from the pre-Civil War era through
the war years, and into the late 1800s. Paper currency expert Hugh
Shull's first-hand knowledge of today's market is combined with
historical text by researcher Wendell Wolka. Detailed descriptions,
hundreds of full-color images, and valuations in multiple grade
levels make this book required reading for both the historian and
the collector.

"Hugh Shull goes beyond Criswell, with more useful information,
values, and other features than Grover ever dreamed of," says
numismatic historian Q. David Bowers in the foreword. "This great
new book is absolutely essential to anyone interested in Southern
states currency."

The book offers an in-depth study of the paper money of Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, the Indian Territory, Louisiana,
Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee,
Texas, and Virginia.

"Southern States Currency is more than an update of old work,"
says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. "Hugh Shull has gathered
new information on the notes issued by these states, and he's
corrected erroneous research published by other authors. For the
collector, dealer, or investor, Hugh's numismatic expertise is
especially seen in the rarity listings and market valuations.
For the historian, Wendell Wolka's research provides a solid
foundation and background."

The book includes notes published in full color for the first time
(such as the 1861 $500 Virginia Treasury Note), as well as images
of notes that have never been made public before.

A Guide Book of Southern States Currency will be available in
January 2007. Pre-orders are now being taken at www.whitmanbooks.com.

448 pages. Full color.
$24.95 in paperback; $29.95 in hardcover spiral."
