WHITMAN'S MONEY OF THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR BOOK AND REPLICAS

Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded a new press release
announcing sets of replicas the company will be marketing in
conjunction with a new book on U.S. Civil War numismatics:

"Whitman Publishing announces two collector sets commemorating money
of the American Civil War, one for Confederate coins and the other
for federal. These colorful and educational packages include high-
quality replicas of coins from the 1860s. Set 1 features the
Confederate cent and half dollar. Set 2 showcases the Indian Head
cent and a Civil War token.

"The replicas are encapsulated in see-through holders that allow
both sides to be viewed. The cards open up to reveal historical
information, photographs, and artwork from the era.

"These sets will be joined in early 2007 by a new Whitman Publishing
book, Money of the American Civil War, by Eve MacMaster. The book
tells the story of the war and the money of the day, including gold
and silver coins, federal and Confederate paper money, Civil War
tokens, Indian Head cents, encased postage stamps, Confederate and
Southern state issues, and more."

[I'm eagerly looking forward to the new book - it's on one of my
favorite topics.  Historian Eve MacMaster is Dave Bowers' sister.
Her husband, Dr. Richard MacMaster, is an E-Sylum subscriber and
also an historian and published author.  History and writing runs
deep in the Bowers family!

As for the replicas, Dennis notes that they do comply with the
Hobby Protection Act and feature the word COPY. -Editor]
