Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded an article from the Whitman Review about one of the latest titles of U.S. paper money. -Editor
In the 416 pages of this fully updated new edition, the history buff is treated to a study of American currency from the War of Independence to the modern day. The art aficionado, meanwhile, is immersed in full-color galleries of the beautiful, ornate, richly symbolic artistry of American paper money. Currency collectors have, in the Friedberg numbering system, the perfect system for cataloging their collections. Sellers and buyers alike benefit from the book’s retail valuations across several grades for each series.
It’s easy to see why the first edition of the Guide Book won a Numismatic Literary Guild award (“Best Specialized Book, U.S. Paper Money,” 2005). Now the second edition carries on that tradition. Every federal note—from the ultra rare Demand Notes of 1861 to the lunch money in our wallets today—is described in detail in this new volume. Also given full treatment are War of 1812 Treasury Notes, encased postage stamps, Fractional Currency, and error notes. Fascinating narrative captures the history of American paper money, and also explores recent developments in the hobby and market.
