Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded this announcement about SPMC's Book of the Year award. Congratulations! -EditorThe Society of Paper Money Collectors awarded Hugh Shull its 2008 “Book of the Year” medal, for the Guide Book of Southern States Currency (Whitman Publishing, 2007). The award was presented in June at the Memphis International Paper Money Show.
“This is a wonderful honor to be recognized by my peers in the hobby community,” said Shull.
The SPMC award is the third won by Shull for Southern States Currency. The book also received the 2007 Professional Currency Dealers Association’s Literary Award and a 2007 Extraordinary Merit award from the Numismatic Literary Guild.
Shull’s book is an authoritative guide to the state-issued money of the South, from the pre–Civil War era through the war years, and into the late 1800s. It combines his research and first-hand knowledge of the market with historical text by Wendell Wolka. Detailed descriptions, hundreds of full-color images, and valuations in multiple grade levels add to its value for the historian and the collector.
