The Kappen-Mitchell book was superseded as a catalog by the 1984 Mitchell-Shafer work. But Kappen-Mitchell remains quite useful for the background information it contains on many of the scrip issues listed.
I had forgotten all about contributing to the book. I didn't do much, but had sent Neil a list of the notes in my own meager collection. Mine is a presentation copy, complete with an example of actual Depression Scrip. Neat!
QUICK QUIZ: Who can name another book on paper money which includes an actual example of the item catalogued?
