NEW BOOK: TREMMEL'S 'A GUIDE BOOK OF COUNTERFEIT CONFEDERATE CURRENCY'

[Another upcoming Whitman release is an update to the
classic reference on Confederate counterfeits.  The
following is from material provided by publisher Dennis
Tucker. -Editor]

"Until now, George B. Tremmelís groundbreaking Counterfeit
Currency of the Confederate States of America was the
definitive reference in this fascinating collectibles
field. In the new Guide Book of Counterfeit Confederate
Currency, Tremmel not only updates his note-by-note study,
but also expands his research into counterfeit bonds,
shinplasters, and Treasury note sheets. Along the way he
immerses the reader in an engaging history of the events
and people involved in the production and passing of
counterfeits during the Civil War, and the countermeasures
the Confederate Treasury Department took to protect its
paper money.

"The book will debut in early October at the Whitman Coin
and Collectibles Atlanta Expo, where Tremmel is scheduled
to give a presentation on the subject.

"Features of the Guide Book of Counterfeit Confederate Currency:

* Two new appendices: bogus (fantasy) signatures
and margin imprint locations
* Expanded historical narrative, with additional illustrations
* Three new chapters: shinplasters, bonds, and note sheets
* Revised rarity ratings based on empirical data
* Comprehensive catalog with detailed images
* Market valuations in multiple grade levels
* More than 350 full-color images
* Extensive endnotes and bibliography
* Complete index with 450+ entries "
