Just wanted to bring to your attention a new book by Don Bailey: STATE & FEDERAL COPPER AND BRASS COINAGE OF MEXICO, 1824 – 1872
The announcement and details can be found on his homepage donbailey-mexico.com
I have just ordered the book and haven't been able to take a look at it yet, but as a specialized study on a largely overlooked part of Mexican numismatics, it is a first on the topic and definitely an entry for the bibliography on the NBS homepage!
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Below is the web site description of the book. -Editor Don Bailey, NLG has announced that after more then three years of research and complication of listings and pricing the “State Copper” book is published and now available to collectors and dealers.
This is the first extensive effort to update the numismatic and pricing information in over thirty years. The book has eighty- four pages, with Images of 52 different coin types plus several varieties and tokens are shown. It is published on 28-pound paper, spiral bound, letter size with heavy Plastic covers.
The over all history of this interesting period of Mexico’s financial history is covered in an overview of all coins and a separate history for each entity and there is a footnote for each with historical notes and information.
“State Coppers” has been published by the Don Bailey Institute For Mexican Numismatic Research, and was compiled with the assistance of seventeen contributors, with a special credit to Ben Nibert, McAllen, Texas for sharing his vast numismatic knowledge, and also to Cory Frampton and Max Keech for sharing their choicest examples from their collections for illustrations in the book and for other efforts to make this what it is.
The pricing for this publication is $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Quantity discount is available. Book request and any other questions can be directed to Don Bailey
