WHITMAN'S NEW NICKEL BOOK ANNOUNCED

Also announced this week is "... the release of A Guide Book of
Buffalo and Jefferson Nickels, the eighth entry in Whitman’s
Bowers Series of numismatic titles.

"Each coin is illustrated in full color, with high-resolution
enlargements for important overdates and other varieties.
Mintages, specifications, market values in multiple grades
(including Full Steps for Jefferson nickels), and certified
and surviving field populations add to the book’s reference value.

“This book is a real treat for the nickel collector,” said Whitman
publisher Dennis Tucker. “In addition to in-depth history, grading
standards, and market information, it includes ‘extras’ like
appendices on error nickels and pattern coins.”

“There’s also a fascinating five-page gallery of ‘what might have
been’—proposed Artistic Infusion Program designs for the 2005
nickel,” said Tucker. “And numismatic artist Chuck Daughtrey has
contributed a portrait of Buffalo nickel designer James Earle Fraser.”

[The 288-page paperback by Q. David Bowers will retail for $19.95.
